There was a bomb threat at Wasilla High School today. There’s good and bad news going along with this. First the good, because it’s the shortest part.
Two links to the story.
Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman – Notes with “bomb” prompted lockdown at Wasilla high
Anchorage Daily News – No bomb found at Wasilla High after threat
Read the comments on the links, you’ll see some pissed off people, and some that are not.
The school system has a call system in place where they call and email the parents incase of any happenings, like closings, bombs and such. That’s the good news.
From what we heard on the scanner and read on line, this was one fucked up lock down and evacuation. Some wonder why there was even school today, the first letter was found last night. then there are those that wonder why the students were kept in thier classrooms instead of getting them out of the building. On the scanner it reallys sounded as if the police, or who ever, didn’t know what the fuck was going on. They didn’t know where or when the kids were boarding the busses. They didn’t know where the busses were taking the kids. They didn’t know when or if the kids were getting a bus trip home, it turns out NO. The kids were sent out without getting thier coats and suff, well, that’s just fucking stupid, it’s been well below zero for sometime now, and sending them out without coats is completely irresponsible. It really did seem as though the right hand didn’t know what the left was doing, at least from what I heard on the scanner.
Ya know, I really can’t help but think this wouldn’t have happened if Palin, the no longer liked by many locals governor, wouldn’t have put her face in the national public seen. People know that anything that happens in Wasilla will be on the national news, in time. And you can thank her for that. She doesn’t do shit for this state since her vice-pres run. I use to like her, no longer.
One more thing. If it wasn’t for Bush (The Speaking Chimp, of is that chump) inciting terror on all those that don’t believe as him, this may have been just pushed off as just another school prank.
No matter what, all is good now.
’til next time
