My kids High School went on "perimeter lock down" for 2 hours today.
No link or real story yet. Only an email from the principal:
-------------------------------------------------------------​
"On the advise of the Asheville Police Department, we have lifted the perimeter lockdown from the Asheville High/SILSA campus at this time. Law enforcement continues to investigate the Facebook post in quesiton and will take appropriate action. A perimeter lockdown enables us to account for all students and visitors to campus, as well as to provide for their safety while allowing instruction to continue. As always, the safety of our campus is our first priority. Thank you for your support and understanding in the situation."
-----------------------------------------------------------
As far as i am concerned there is no "understanding" of what happened. There were only the same 2 Police resource officers on site to protect the perimeter of the huge campus. I could have entered the school from any direction easily.

The vagary I was greeted with when I called the school on top of the fact that the campus was in no way secure makes me think it was only a drill that may or may not have had a facebook posting to justify it.

I'm glad I grew up when I did. It must suck to be a high school student today. I guess they're just getting them ready for the coming police state.

Op here.

Following is a short story from our local ABC station;


AHS On Soft Lockdown Updated:

Tuesday, May 14 2013, 11:01 AM EDT Asheville High School is on a "soft lockdown", meaning students are going to classes but there is heavy police patrol, while officials investigate a threat made to a student this morning. Authorities say a threat against a student was found on the students Facebook page. While authorities investigate, they've placed the school on a "soft" or perimeter lockdown just as a precaution.

op:

REALLY? Lock down the school for a facebook threat? It had better be serious. I have talked to the principal and the top administrator, neither can or will tell me details of the threat and both claim it was not a drill. They already said that it was a threat to one student and not the whole school.

IMHO:
They really want any reason to do their drills.

Update:

No details so far on the Facebook post that caused the lock down. I find it strange that no kids know the story about the post . I am leaning towards they made up the FB incident Di they could run our local cops through a fed mandated school lock down drill. If this is true the drill only appeared to be running primarily through the communication channels as there was only a few cops " securing" the perimeter of the school. That's what made me sceptic all that it was a real threat; when I was about to drop off my kid I was not questioned, there appeared to be no emergency. That made me think it was a drill.

Lock the medicine cabinets and hide the pressure cookers.

What happened to the days of having a beef with someone and then knocking them on their ass and moving on. Now kids are hanging themselves over bullying and cops are setting-up soft perimeters around schools.

Hell in a handbasket.
