People please get a grip. Why bash the town or the school district? The issue here is the bomb threat and shooting made by a very unstable student. No one is safe from this kind of predator no matter what town or school district you live in. As long as this person walks the streets none of us are immune to his threats. Who is to say where he may strike next?
It amazes me how small minded people can be instead of uniting against this form of terrorism. We all need to come together because one day sadly this can happen in your school district and bashing is certainly not a solution.
In my opinion, we should be more concerned as to why the judicial system has failed us by allowing this student to walk free. Yelling fire in a theater is a crime. This juvenile needs to be kept away from the human population. If he is gone unpunished it may create others to do the same for a day off of school. The children, parents and society have to take ALL threats seriously. Not suggesting it’s just a “rumor”. Haven’t we learned from the atrocity that took place in Columbine?
I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YO AND COULDN'T HAVE SAID IT BETTER. THANK YOU.

Where do you people get your information from that East Islip is so horrible? From the one or two people you might see from here or know from here? Doubt that you know what your talking about! Did Floyd win LIC by any chance? HA. There's "hoochie mamas" with asshole parents at every school not just here. If you hate EI why are you even taking the time to care about what we're like and post stuff about us if you "cant stand us" you would want nothing to do with us good or bad. Get over it, we're pretty damn great!

Im in school right now
its 12:17 p.m on the day the "bombing" is supposed to take place. and let me tell you,
absolutly nothing is happeneing
everyone needs to stop fuckign talking about football, seriosly our team kicks ass,
LIC CHAMPS BABY.
anyway,
even with the threat its just an ordinary school day,
except alot of student used today as an exuse to just stay home from school. so basically were not doing anything in any classes.
i really think that if the threat was serious,
then they would have taken proper precautions.
all we have todau is extra " rent a cop" guys in yellow jackets walking around.
my friend goes to northport high school and had a threat.. they had police and metal detctors for 2 WEEKS. we get old men in yellow jackets...

but todays cool
nothing going on
so coool your panties moms.
maybe you should consider taking stupid text messgaing away from your 11 year old sons and daughters.

With all due respect Briana come back and talk to me when you have kids of your own. I am so thankful nothing happend to any of you today. I hope your entire life is filled with peace and stress free days. Talk to me when you have TEENS! Stress and worrying is part of the job when you are parents. "cool your panties mom" was uncalled for. It's not my panties I care about..it's you kids. Be happy we care.

EAST ISLIP FOREVER: "IF YOU DON'T HAVE NOTHING NICE TO SAY," That my dear is a "double negative". What you are telling me, is that "I have everything to say", hence, "don't have nothing". If I didn't have "nothing", then I must have "everything". Great product from a great school! Go EI Football! Just be darn glad that Floyd isn't in your schedule.
you seriously have nothing else to do but check for a minor spelling error? alot and a lot? big spelling error there. wow you really got me. get a life seriously.

all i was trying to say is that East Islip is not a "fecal container" and a holding cell for suffolk community college and home depot" like the last moron said.

i don't even know why i even bother commenting on this site. it's full of pathetic people checking for spelling errors and do not have anything to relate to this article but make spelling corrections what are you my second grade teacher?

ALL YOU PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT EAST ISLIP ARE JUST JEALOUS. I'VE BEEN HERE FOR OVER 30 YEARS. LEFT SAYVILLE AND ISLIP TO RETURN BACK BECAUSE EAST ISLIP IS A GREAT COMMUNITY AND THIS IS JUST A CRAZY RUMOR. YOU ALL WISH YOU COULD AFFORD TO LIVE HERE. IF YOU DON'T HAVE NOTHING NICE TO SAY, WHY BOTHER WASTING YOUR TIME COMMENTING ON SOMETHING YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT. THIS GOES FOR ALL OF YOU PUTTING IN NEGATIVE COMMENTS ABOUT EAST ISLIP.

It amazes me that everytime I read posts, it almost immmediately goes right to a gutter mentality, with most posts having nothing to do with the issue. It is a sad commentary that so many out there harbor such hatred and disdain for people they don't even know. The issue is a troubled teen, who, I understand it has done this before. He obviously needs help, and should get it. Yet, not at the expense of the other students. He should be removed from the school permanently, and sent to a psychiatric facility until such time that he is able to deal with his issues in a more productive and far less threatening manner.
