Good heavens! I would call this an extraordinary event. Glad to see he was caught, although his target was the evil school board.

The end result will be that parents won't let their kids walk to school by themselves now. Because there is always some crazy man in the bushes waiting for them.

Telling someone to drop a knife isn't quite the same as "disarming" them. Misleading headline.

Maybe not - but it takes more guts then most people have to confront an armed man.

I know, I went in hoping for a story about a man taking off another man's arms with a knife and left disappointed.

This seems to be a feed from ONN, which is totally not related to 10tv or the dispatch or anything.

No police officer in his right mind would have approached this guy with just a cell phone in his hand. At a minimum he would have both a Taser and a gun at the ready. This incident highlights the foolishness of making school zones weapon free areas. This could have turned out far worse for the principal had the man he confronted in the bushes been younger, more physically fit, and determined not to be captured or deterred. This could easily have ended with this UNARMED principal being killed or gravely injured. Note the urgency of the situation. He may have had to act fast because there wasn't time to wait for the police to respond. That is often the case in mass murder situations that almost always occur in gun free zones. Had this principal been allowed to meet deadly force with deadly force if had come down to that, it could easily have meant the difference between him living and dying that day. This is another compelling case for why teachers should be allowed to have the ability to defend themselves against these kinds of threats before the police arrive. Even a parent who was armed while dropping off their own children could have stopped an actual attack before the police arrived, possibly saving many lives had the situation gone that way. Legislators of Ohio, are you paying attention. If that principal was YOUR brother, father or son, would you have wanted him approaching such a dangerous situation with only a cell phone to defend himself with? You have the power to change that. How many more innocent teachers and children will get slaughtered in American schools before our legislatures finally figure out the futility of No Gun zones at schools. They accomplish nothing except to give all the tactical advantages to the criminals.

What, somebody had a weapon in a weapon free zone? How is that possible? What are they, some kind of crazy criminal?

You got it, these 'feel-good' laws don't accomplish anything but make it harder for law abiding citizens to protect themselves from criminals.

God talks to me all the time. He never tells me to go out and kill someone.
Actually what He is ALWAYS harping at me about is to quit killing myself with drugs, alcohol and tobbaco. Sometimes I wish I didn't hear his voice. He is definitely a harping parent who won't let his child be. Why does he harp at me daily? Because He loves me and wants so much more for me.

79 years of age, confused, voices told him to "end the school boards"

Well, in other words: mentally ill!

All he needs is some better pills.

The information may be simply missing from the story but was there any arrangement for a psych eval of this man? I'm a mentally ill person myself - perhaps because of this I find forced treatment and or confinement a difficult issue, but its seems clear enough that on the surface at least he has a high potential to do harm to others. Given that I think we are justified in forcing this on him. Does the law not allow for this in such a case? And since I have your attention I'd like to say that every time a criminal is or is alleged to be mentally ill it gives the great majority of us who have never harmed anyone a bad name. But we rarely see anything be it news or TV show that shows anything but severe and dangerous mental illness. That's not a very complete picture. And I know many times the crook's claim of illness is bogus, which hurts those of us or are really ill even worse.
