submitter: Batman Sighting Causes School Lockdown

One Kid Says Something About Seeing Batman And You Lock Down Three Schools? That Sounds Excessive.

Capitalizing Every Word In A Sentence Is Not Cool, Submitter.

Surely you know the (unwritten) rule regarding headlines :)

Ralph, remember that time you said Snagglepuss was outside?

...a student at Desert Arroyo Middle School reported seeing a person dressed as Batman run across campus, jump a fence and disappear into the desert.

Police combed the desert around the middle school. A nearby elementary school and high school also were on lockdown as officers sought the caped crusader.

Awesome prank!

Scared of the utility belt?

/got nothin

HERO tag would have been funny
STUPID tag would have been appropriate too.
2007-02-15 12:42:23 AM  
A Batman sighting is no cause for alarm. But if it's a Joker or Penguin sighting, then that's when you call Police Commissioner Gordon.
2007-02-15 12:43:30 AM  
Adam West is 78 I don't think he's jumping fences.
2007-02-15 12:43:44 AM  
Everything about that article makes me happy. Everything except for the second sentance starting with the word "that".
2007-02-15 12:44:14 AM  
That after a student at Desert Arroyo Middle School reported seeing a person dressed as Batman run across campus, jump a fence and disappear into the desert.

That's mysterious.
VERY mysterious.....

You know, even if there was someone dressed as Batman, is that reason to lock down three schools? A guy in tights? Sure, send the crossing guard our to look, but a lock down is way past excessive. And what would you charge the guy with if you caught him? I know in Boston it would be considered a hoax and he would get fined 2 million.

My freshman year of high school some kid let off a smoke bomb in the hallway the senior's last day, and I mean one of the TNT looking sticks of it. No lock downs, to evacuation, just a message saying that if a senior was responsible he would have to replace the tile before he could walk. We are a nation of sissies now.

Next week (same time, same channel) Batman will win back the trust of Scottsdale, Arizona, by foiling the school superintendent's plan to rob a bank using little kids who think they're on a field trip.

FTFA: The result - no Batman.

What did you expect? He was trained by ninja.
2007-02-15 12:53:25 AM  
if Batman doesn't want to be found, you don't find him.
2007-02-15 12:55:34 AM  
Police combed the desert around the middle school.

We ain't found shiat!
2007-02-15 12:57:51 AM  
Congratulations, submitter, you used a pretty freaking obscure source. And this is coming from a person who has gotten a greenlight from the Fond du Lac Reporter.
2007-02-15 01:00:17 AM  
Holy over-reacting, Batman!!!1

criminals are a superstitious and cowardly lot.
2007-02-15 01:07:42 AM  
Ahh, I remember back when I was a lad and we would take turns calling in Batman threats to get out of tests.....

2007-02-15 01:09:13 AM  
I like how prison terminology (and actions/reactions) are preparing young minds for their collective futures.

Also unavailable for comment was Hank Venture.

If they had caught him they could have given him a Snickers bar, 'cuz he wouldn't be going anywhere for a while.

/too obscure?

2007-02-15 02:15:06 AM  
We need a tag for stuff like this.
*PANIC!* more and more bostonesque stories every day.
tsk tsk tsk
2007-02-15 03:21:57 AM  
Even if they had caught him! He's BATMAN! He would surely use live action captions to defeat them and such.
"Bam!ZOOM!SMACK, SHIZAM, thump, *Insert cheesy "Next time you try to do that you better _____" statement here*
2007-02-15 03:30:19 AM  
Bet it was a Robin flying overhead that sighting him,,
2007-02-15 04:05:49 AM  
Glad the kid didn't see a bird and a plane... would have had the Nation Guard looking for Superman and shut down 6 schools and the local pet shop.
2007-02-15 04:22:25 AM  
He just wanted to be around the boys. It was remorse over Robin.
2007-02-15 04:31:33 AM  
What are they dense? Are they retarded or something? Who the hell do they think he is? He's the Goddamn Batman.
2007-02-15 07:50:17 AM  
Don't they realize that the Batman is on OUR side???

2007-02-15 08:24:56 AM  
Well it was a clown school, and we know how Batman hates men in make-up...
2007-02-15 08:27:34 AM  
So there's a law against dressing up like Batman?

2007-02-15 01:57:30 PM  

/did i miss it?
2007-02-15 02:02:00 PM  
Locked down three schools, eh?

I wonder what they would've done if that dope-smoking teenager had said he'd seen The Incredible Hulk.
