EDMONDS, Wash. (AP) — Bail has been set at $10,000 cash for two Edmonds teens accused of making racially charged threats against students at their high school.

KOMO-TV reports (http://goo.gl/yItu72 ) the boys, ages 15 and 16, appeared in a Snohomish County Court Wednesday. The teens could face malicious harassment charges.

Edmonds police spokesman Shane Hawley says they made death threats in a Facebook group against certain black students and against the entire student body at Edmonds-Woodway High School.

In court, the boys' fathers told the judge their sons did something stupid and that their access to social media had been taken away.

Documents show one of the victims told detectives that the threats appalled and disturbed him, while another said it angered him but that he decided the teens were being immature and ignorant.
