    Someone threatened to gun down our school today.

    Let's just say I'm not just worrying about that person. The teachers and school therapist held a discussion about the topic and they had to shut it down in 20 minutes, because the conversation was turning into that of a lynch mob's.

    Anyone else have these kind of threats around them lately? Meaning...someone making claims like that in the workplace or school environment?

    There was another co-worker situation at NASA in Houston, Texas, US. 60 Yr. old killed another man, then shot himself later.

    At the height of the troubles in Northern Ireland this used to be a daily event, only in our case it was bomb scares... people became complacent (just another scare) then, when, as was inevitable it was for REAL people assumed it was another false alarm with devastating results...
    What I am saying is treat every threat as though its real, don't become complacent..

    I agree Hazel. We have had a few incidents around us lately as well. The threats have to be taken seriously. Threats do become reality sometimes and to take the chance that nothing will come of it is not worth the risk of precious lives. We had a threat at the middle school level Thursday and high school Friday. Many of these are precipitated from the Virginia Tech incident. There usually are increases in events following something of this magnitude. Sad for everyone.

    TLA: All the administrators jumped on it immediately and put them on one-on-one, sent them to outside therapists for evaluation. She's determined as not a threat.

    Hazel: Yeah I guess you never know.

    gentlelady: That's true.

    That One Girl: Haha...I'd blame our advancement of technology, but it does good things for us too.
