No. Not better safe than sorry. You farking pussified shiatful cowards. You know who posts threats on Instagram? Angsty teenage douchebags with virtually nothing threatening about them.

Anything that makes us safer is worthwhile. We might be so poor that we have to eat dirt and so timid that the sight of our own shadow causes us to piss our pants, but at least we'll be alive to enjoy it.

Any bets on the followup news story revealing that the post was made by a disgruntled student whose parents refused to sign his permission slip for the field trip?

I tend to agree with the initial post.  If someone were to go all shooty on the school, they would just do it.  There wouldn't be a warning.
 
2013-10-25 03:25:48 PM
This decision is just sorry.  If they wanted them to be safe the kids would have been armed as they got on the bus.

At what point in the "there is a threat to or at the school" does someone decide "we can't let anyone LEAVE the school!!! Especially not to go to a relatively safe location far away from here!"

It has occurred to me that science speculates this sort of cowardice is what led to the age of mammals in the first place.

It is likely to be even more deeply ingrained than any sort of predatory instincts we may have developed over the last million years.

I don't know if my high school was unusual, but we had occasional bomb scares. Seems kind of odd when I think back on it. I think they were taken seriously, but not as seriously as they would be now.

I was in my driver's ed class once when our school went into lockdown, which just meant that people had to stay where they were-we didn't evacuate. The police came into the school with a bomb-sniffing dog.

There was a junior in the class who was a pretty funny cut-up. He was repeating driver's ed. He asked the teacher, "What if the dog has a cold?"

Our teacher was also a quite funny woman, though unintentionally. She always addressed us collectively as, "People." And she would often close her eyes as if she was thinking really intently. So when he asked this, she closed her eyes, and got really serious, "People! If it's our time to go, it's our time to go!"

That was quite stoic leadership!

Or why they didn't have the bus which was apparently already full of kids get a police escort away from the school?

The pussification of America is just about complete.Soviet and Chinese kids accept the risk of cost versus benefit, where if some don't come back, it's accepted. In th U.S., God, Guns, more guns, and Jebus, who'll protect you?Growing up is hard enough, without some facebook jagoff ruining it for everyone. Let kids be kids, and don't be an ass.

My high school was located across the street from the county fairgrounds, and every time some prankster called in a bomb threat, they'd evacuate us to the fairgrounds. Inevitably, someone would get hurt messing with some of the broken down fair rides.

Our old high school bomb protocol was:

1)  Cryptic message indicating code black (i.e. bomb threat i.e. "Would Mr. ______ please return the black binder to the office?") to let teachers know the bomb protocol was in place.

2) Every door in the school stayed open, maybe with the exception of bathroom doors, to keep bomb blast energy dissipated.

3) Teachers would suddenly be super vigilant about "no hanging out in the hallways between classes"

4) Police officers would be dispatched to the school to just be nearby

5) Classes would proceed as normal.

Pretty sure this was in response to people realizing that cancelling classes and having all the students milling out on the back lawn a) meant people called in threats to get out of a test and b) created a more dangerous situation

This was pre-Columbine/pre-9/11 so people had a hell of a lot more common sense about this sort of thing.

Blame the school administration and lawyers.  No one below them really has discretion to handle these things it's another 'zero-tolerance' type thing.

It always amuses me that a few people with phones and laptops could grind this country to a halt, actually I'm surprised no one has tried it yet.
 
2013-10-25 07:09:06 PM
Anyone else notice this bit?
The threatening message was posted on Instagram and was actually spotted by a parent from another school who was monitoring her own child's social media.

It is actually heartening that a mother was, you know, parenting.
 
2013-10-25 07:15:48 PM
If I ever got a bomb threat I would ignore it as a crank call and not tell anyone.

The only message you will get from a real bomber is a bomb.
