This is extremely upsetting!!! In Wyoming, Mich. Police in roit gear with guns, helmets, vests came in a Middle and High school and toke the kids from their classrooms into the hallways and patted them down and asked them questions. Some kids were so scared they almost wetted their pants.

This is so uncalled for. What the He** is going on here? The kids were not informed of this at all. The parents were not informed at all. The teachers only moments before it all went down. There was no reason for this. Noone did anything!!!

WYOMING, Mich. - A school safety drill that included police officers in riot gear with weapons has caused concern among some parents who say it was too realistic and frightened some students.

Police in the western Michigan community of Wyoming entered two classrooms at Lee Middle and High School on Thursday and announced there was a threat to the school, The Grand Rapids Press reported.

Students, who were unaware police were conducting a drill, were taken from the classroom into the halls, patted down by officers and asked what they had in their pockets, the newspaper said. "Some of these kids were so scared, they just about wet their pants," said Marge Bradshaw, a parent with four children in Godfrey-Lee Schools. "I think it's pure wrong that the students and parents were not informed of this."

Officers wore protective gear, including vests and helmets, and carried rifles that were unloaded and marked with colored tape to indicate they were not live weapons, the newspaper said.

Diana Silva, a parent of an eighth-grade student, said the drill went too far.
"My child was with his face to the wall in the hallway of the high school," Silva said. "I certainly don't want anything like this happening to my child."

So this was in Michigan?
