    Connecticut school district in lockdown following report of suspicious person in area

    Oh Jeez........ Not sure whether or not its a true threat, someone playing a prank, or someone being overly paranoid about any and everything on the first day back at school.

    I'd say likely it's hyper paranoia.

    I've seen this sort of phenomenon plenty of times.

    A tight knit HOA ruled community has a break-in at one of the houses.......

    Give it a few days for word to spread around and every dog walker and newspaper delivery man is getting a suspicious person call to 911.

    Why on earth would you say that? And an aside, EVERY SCHOOL SHOULD BE ON LOCK DOWN ALL THE TIME.

    Oh, stop. You'da been cryin' like a baby had you walked into that school to investigate what happened. What is unrealistic about taking threats seriously? What is unrealistic about locking down our schools? That's far more likely to buy time than anything else we might do.

    Because right after a tragedy or emotionally damaging event, people tend to be hypersensitive to the effect for awhile.

    Do you realize that "lockdown" means children cannot leave the classroom AT ALL? No walking the halls, no recess, no changing classes...and lord help 'em if they don't have restrooms in their classroom.

    Schools should be secured at all times. I would support buzz-in access for visitors, for example. But you have to realize that "lockdown" isn't just secured outer doors; it means the entire school is held in place where ever they were when the lockdown order was issued. Are you comfortable with your child being locked inside a classroom for 7 hours on any normal day?

    I didn't say take precautions......

    There is a difference between believing something is just overt paranoia and STILL taking precautions...... and believing something is paranoia and ignoring it.

    And you are right...... had I responded to that killing I would have been balling my eyes out....

    I could barely hold back my tears when I had to respond to a call to assist medic with a 1 year old who managed to burn herself with boiling water from the stove at 3am because her parents were too busy playing halo at that time to make sure she didn't climb up and pull the pot down on herself. My son was 1 years old at the time and hearing her screams and looking at her I wouldn't help but tear up.
