    Death threat prompts police response to Newtown church on Sunday

    NEWTOWN, Conn.--St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic Church was evacuated during its noon mass on Sunday due to an anonymous threat made by phone.

    A spokesman for the church told Yahoo News that an unidentified male called the rectory, threatening to "kill everyone."
    "My friend didn't finish the job," the caller said, according to the church official.
    The church alerted state police, who said it was a credible enough threat and ordered the church be evacuated, the spokesman said.
    At approximately 12:30 p.m., Monsignor Robert Weiss interrupted a younger priest, "calmly told the parishoners there was a threat," and led the evacuation of approximately 500 people, he said.

    The police will have a full response to any similar calls.

    You can expect a significant police presence at the church, school, town and at the funerals.

    These kinds of threats are going to inflict more psychological damage to the residents.
    Language is political. Each of us talks, listens, and thinks in his/her own special language that has been shaped by our culture, experiences, profession, personality, mores and attitudes. The chances of us meeting someone else who talks the exact same language is pretty remote.

    If only it would be so easy to track down that caller.

    Most likely he is 20-30 something loser still living at home with his parents and probably doesn't even own a gun. Doubt if he belongs to any organization. If he was really going to come shooting he would do just that and not do a prank call. But the police can't take a chance and had to evacuate everyone.

    Pretty much sums things up. Thing is, how do we get weapons away from these people? Also how do we know if someone would go bonkers and start shooting / harming others?

    Was it confirmed that the caller had weapons, and I missed it or something? It was a prank call, probably with the hopes of stirring up exactly this reaction.

    I am not getting it....In general terms, we should disarm prank callers?
