I do not have a child at this school, but at another and I am glad the school was put on lock-down while the police searched for a possible gun. I am thankful, this gun was only a fake, but it could have been real. Now, let's do something with the student or students who brought this fake gun to school and make them pay in some fashion for all the money expended because of their need to create havoc and get attention. Let's force them to get a job and pay back the police department, APS and us the taxpayer for the money spent on their behalf. Maybe then, they won't feel such a need for attention.

Have your political debate somewhere else. This conversation is about the kids at La Cueva High School and the danger they are facing. Shut up and move on.
Maybe if you learn to read you would see that I have been talking about those poor kids...... You must be a politician or work for them or maybe you voted for them and now you are mad to see what type a S*@t you have out there running your state. Nevertheless if you dont like what I have to say dont read it.

As a former graduate of La Cueva i will guarentee all of you that this is a senior prank that two kids came up with one night and thought it would be funny, now they will pay the price and i hope they do. And for the sake of all the other students I one am very glad they are safe and two hope they can take something away from the situation and learn from someone else's mistake. Also i can't agree with Trojan68 more about the police department they do not come to our jobs and tell the employees all they do wrong, maybe we should let them do their job, it's what they are trained to do. In addition, the well being of those students is the first and foremost for all the adminstration at that school and i'm glad the kids in the community are safe, and the parents can relax somewhat until they are able to pick their child up. I hope there is a lesson to be learned.

I told you Police were good at over-reacting, A cardboard gun, give me a break. Police should have stayed out and let La Cueva staff handle it, they had it controlled before police arrived anyway.

Not the PR people who's jobs it is to deal with concerned parents who's students may or may not die at the hand of a crazy gun toting person. Think a little bit before you just get defenseful for the police officers. Did I ever attack the men who are trying to keep my daughter safe, no.
But if you gain a little bit of respect for human life and pull that drunken-DWI ridden haze off your face you may be able to see that this could have become a situation that could have gotten people killed because of the miscommunication of the APD, APS, and 311 (Government info line).
By the way, your post didn't even make sense, so learn how to become a literate writer before you pull some stupid posting like "Oh yeah then maybe you'd have something else to cry about." After what? They don't tell me information about my daughter who is STILL locked down after almost 3 hours of lies and BS.
Have a little respect for people who's families are in grave danger and who's government will not work for them.
I'm glad it's working out for you though, I'm sure you have some friends at the top.
By the way, the door has hit me in the butt, so many times, and so hard today, it's pushing me right out the door.
The "grave" danger that yer kid would have been in at the school would have been too many hysterical parents trying to get in to "save" their kids. The cops inside the scene don't have time to respond to PR people so just be thankful for the info you did get.Try to put yourself in their shoes, their main concern IS the kids, parents they can deal with later when they are more rational.

what is the latest news? I'm in my house three streets over and the state helicopter is still circling as it has been since about 10:15am. I don't have a television but the radio hasn't given any updates and the local news websites are updating either. Is this situation over or why does the helicopter keep rattling my windows??

Your own article says they have
"Two La Cueva High School students are in custody this morning after taking a fake gun made of cardboard onto the campus and triggering a lockdown." were there others beyond 2, safety is of course best, but the tv could mention what you WRITE on your own website...that perhaps the problem MAY be somewhat reduced.

And what if the gun would have been real, then you'd be crying about the police not responding. Hindsight is 20/20.Better to overreact then underreact(is that a word?)

The report was a gun on campus, not a "cardboard" gun on campus. Darn those cops for not knowing that it was a fake gun at the time the call came in. Are you really that dense? Yes this is a rhetorical question, we know the answer and it's yes.

Ya, the teachers should've handled a report of a gun on campus. We need a good school shooting in our city.

You are a flippin m0r0n!

The cops did what they had to do. Fake gun? Do you know how many people who had fake guns have been killed by the police who don't risks lives trying to determine the lethality of every brandished weapon? The kids are lucky to be alive and the school did the right thing to get the cops involved. If you want to second guess the cops, I suggest you make your own cardboard gun and wave at one of the nice officers. Putz

Learn how to spell and make coherent sentences and then I'll let you discuss role and scope of government in relation to family members with me.

This isn't over yet. There continues to be classrooms which have NOT been evacuated or searched and this is now 3 hours after the fact.

I would not be so mad and upset if APS had just had an emergency response plan that actually worked and our government sectors can get their stories straight, becauce it would be better if you didn't tell me anything.

Students CONTINUE to be under lockdown, so the situation isn't over yet. Finding a fake gun doesn't mean anything when they are still looking for a second suspect.
Your own article says quoting it:
"Two La Cueva High School students are in custody this morning after taking a fake gun made of cardboard onto the campus and triggering a lockdown."
You haven't read your own news information before replying to me...clearly it says two were apprehended.

Duh..sorry I guess I didn't know you were in charge of free speech, but my bad. But I guess my sentences were coherent enough to get you fired up. Plus I didn't go to La Cueva, fortunately I missed all the lock downs.

Another Concerned Citizen,
What the heck are you complaining about & why are you calling 311 & 242-cops when you state you've been text messaging your daughter? You are hysterical & you need to calm down, get off your computer, stop calling another chatter a drunk (how much have you had to drink?), & get over to the dog park where the parent's are being briefed. The gun was cardboard & both kid's who pulled off this stupid, no brainer stunt are in custody. So a few kid's wet their pants because they weren't allowed to use the restrooms, so what? Has it dawned on you that if there had been armed gunman they could have been hiding in there. It's over, pick up your daughter & start packing. Get a grip, lady & Bon Voyage!

The cop's need to book the two lame brained kid's with the fake gun as DUMB & DUMBER & charge the parent's for what their offspring's stupid stunt cost the city! Not funny!
Who's Dumb and Who's Dumber, there is no crime against a "cardboard" gun, unless, it was used in a commission of a crime and three has been no information to that effect provided. So in this case it appears, and once again, that Dumb and Dumber are our APS Police (Pretend Police Department) and APD. Who or what did they deploy the flash-bang at? What was it they saw before deploying the flash-bang? Could it have been another fake object?

Thanks again for the updates. My brother still attends LCHS and I only have access to the internet.

For all the concerned parents- Your dear principle is the one who needs to start taking the greif for these ridiculous stunts. That she has been in charge of a school with such a reputation of excellence for so long is ridiculous and speaks directly to the corruption commented on earlier. As a student at La Cueva, I went through two days of this nonsense. One time was a bomb threat with zero grounds to go on, and the other ended up being an old instument suitcase left in the office. Ridiculous.

No I don't know how many have been killed over fake guns but do you know how many have been killed because COPS thought they saw a gun? They simply over-react and did so in this case. I would argue that it would be pretty difficult to mistaken a cardboard made gun for a real one. I do understand "lookalikes", but cardboard.
