today my daughters high school was on lock down.
some brilliant child there decided to fill a water bottle with gun powder and light it.
it blew up. obviously sounding like shots were fired and quickly sending the school into a frenzy.
brent heard about it from the company next door to the church. he called me, i then called the school and texted kass. no response from anyone. i grabbed my keys and was heading out the door when kass finally texted me that everything was ok.
we talked for a bit, shared details, feelings and frustrations.
i then went to post an update about this on twitter, only to find…
KASS HAD BEEN TWITTERING ABOUT IT FOR 54 MINUTES ALREADY!
the child never even contacted her parents, people. just goes to show how much she loves you all.
i twittered about it anyway and i got to use the word “perp” in one of my tweets. ive always wanted to use that word…for the right reason.
ok…the real point of this post is this…
all the students were ushered into the gym during lock down. logical enough. or is it? dont “perps” (ooo, im good) know this is the procedure. what if their plan is to get everyone in one spot so they can really cause some chaos. if they have a vendeta against anyone then theyd surely have easy access at that point.
im not so certain this is the best safety plan.
what about you? do you know why this is procedure? would you do it differently?
