Dammit, even the new search turned up nothing for this.
Anyway, here's what I posted in my thread that got shut down.
The thing that I find disturbing about stories like this is just how ready people are to report each other to the police for even the slightest
perceived threat.This whole damn "if it saves one life it was worth it" mentality is turning the whole world into a "zero tolerance" zone where common
sense is thrown out the window in favor of knee jerk overreactions to everything.
People seem to think this a harmless exercise in safety. What about the parents who probably feared the worst when they heard the district went into
lock-down? How many students missed lunch or weren't able to go to the bathroom while the schools went into lock-down? How many teachers had their
lesson plans disrupted by the insane paranoia of one nurse?
This wasn't a harmless exercise in safety, it was an exercise in stupidity and futility. It inconvenienced a whole damn school district while the
police wasted their time investigating the "threat" and kept the police off the streets where they could have been battling real crime. If I ever
wanted to rob a bank in a town like this, all I would have to do is phone in some crap like that nurse did and the police would all be elsewhere.
The people who need to learn a lesson from this are the ones applauding the nurse's stupidity and inferring that this was somehow the kid's fault for
having a ringtone on his phone.
From the OP's source:
This is something that really happened.
When they have to end a news story with that statement, you know this country is going down the crapper.
