Get the facts straight before posting and slandering people. The students planning the flash mob WERE NOT the same kids posting/texting/talking about any guns or violence. Do you not remember how rumors get way out of control in high school? Someone hears there will be a flash mob, then some idiot turns it into we're gonna have a party at the school, then it goes to no, we're going to have a mass suicide, then some real big moron says no, we're going to shoot up the school that day. Something innocent turned into a no laughing matter very quickly.<quoted text>
So tell me...if these kids were just planning a freeze frame flash mob with song and dance then why did these same kids post on social medias that they were bringing guns to school, there was a sucide pact, that they were bringing illegal drugs to school for a party at school? Explain that one away! Yeah thats a good idea lets make threats to bring guns and illegal drugs to school and make threats of a sucide pact when they are only planning a freeze frame flash mob with song and dance! Cause that makes since right? NOT! Then now theres rumors of it happening in surrounding schools also and of them randomly picking a different day to it cause they are under investigation! IS IT SAFE TO EVER SEND YOUR KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL? No one really knows who these mentally unstable kids are so how safe is it really to send our kids back to school?
And no, none of us know for sure at any given moment that we or our children are safe from harm regardless of where we are. There are many threats to safety in this world besides mentally ill and crazy people. We could be killed while driving, our homes etc could catch fire, you could fall and break your neck etc etc.
With that being said, I do agree ALL schools need to step up their security and the taxpayers need to ok a tax increase instead of saying NO and then getting on Topix to complain about everything wrong with the schools.
