The magic wand of threats


I have a 13 year old step son. He's threatened suicide for 2 years now and now he's threatening to hurt others, including his mom, his father and me. We have him talking to a therapist and psychiatrist, and nothing is getting better. When we take away his electronics he spirals even further out of control. We've also taken him to clinics to check him in, and they send us away. Not sure what to do, apart from sending him to a military school. He's depressed, disrespectful, enabled and entitled. I don't know who we can go to, or what we should do.
