mr_a: I can't imagine why it would take the cops 16 minutes to get there. Maybe they were off investigating some other wild-goose chase called in by a different hysterical mother?
John the Magnificent: WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO YOU PEOPLE?
John the Magnificent: When I was young Americans were thought of as courageous.WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO YOU PEOPLE?
Semantic Warrior: I also don't think highly of sending a 2 year old to school... parents seem to want their kids out of their hair as soon as they can walk.
rumpelstiltskin: It's Texas. I expect a law will be proposed allowing two year olds to bring guns to school.
ReapTheChaos: So it never occurred to anyone to walk out and ask the guy what he was doing there?
superlawyergirl: She's considered paranoid and annoying because she was wrong, but what if her suspicions were correct?I don't support the spread of widespread paranoia, but, if a mother saw something suspicious at a school, didn't say anything out of fear of being called "paranoid", and tons of kids died from the subsequent rampage, she'd be crucified.
cman: People see strange people at schools as a threat because that is what they expect.They need to fulfill their preconceived notions.It is humanity. We are paranoid by nature and the recent string of shootings have made it even worse. I cant really fault her much because that is what the parent is supposed to expect in this country now.
accelerus: "I had to shoot him he was making a threatening advance"
IBelieveYouHaveMyStapler: Other than being someone she didn't know, I don't see what the guy did that was suspicious. I can just imagine what that 911 call sounded like. "Someone has to get here quick! My God now he's getting keys out of his pocket!! We're all going to be killed!!"
gonegirl: Christ. She is going to be raising some hyper-fearful little nightmare factories, there. Bet those kids need medication before they're in double-digits.
