LIERS--- You need to get a grip... There were 2 kids that said that saw some one with a gun... Would you rather kids get hurt, than take precaughtion!!! They didnt even get out of school, so YOU ARE WRONG ON THAT!!!

Good job to the state and local authorities for taken proper action on the matter, and protecting the kids and adults that were at the schools!!

Liers, you are not expressing how you feel, you are calling them liars. (not liers) Maybe you should spend some time back at school. Obviously the police feel they are credible or they wouldn't have spent all the time and effort they did searching for the person. I also heard the person was seen around the Western State area in Staunton.

Dillan, how do you know he got out of Western State? How do you know it is a he for that matter? And, if he got out of Western State where did he get a gun? Where you at the school? I'm sure it was very scary for you if you were.

The culture of fear predominates again. Locked down can also mean locked in, as in nowhere to go.

Arm teachers!

I think you totally missed my point.

The teachers should be allowed to carry firearms to protect their classrooms and such from people who would wish to do them harm.

They do it in Israel, and its been forever since they have had a school shooting.

I could care less if you think I am mean. The point I was trying to make was "liers" was not expressing how he feels he was calling the students liars! And, if he wanted to be so judgemental...I would point out he didn't even know how to spell liar!
lol, I agree!
