Las Vegas Lock-down

I am sorry to keep you all waiting. I think there is some kind of conspiracy. I leave that post and BAM the internet goes down.
When I went to go pick up Hazel from school, there was a message on a loop about a drill. I thought that wouldn't apply to the kindergarten, and waited by the gate as usual. The principal came running out dizzy with power urging us all into the cafeteria. We get inside and they inform us that a middle school 8th grader shot a 6th grade in the mouth with a BB gun when they had been dropped off about a half mile away from he school. The poor little 6th grader had a broken tooth and a bruised ego. She proceeded to tell us that the shooter was on the loose and she didn't want to release the kids until the culprit had been apprehended. The police finally showed up and calmed the power crazed principal down.
We made it home safely. Don't you worry.
I do think the principal might have overreacted just a tad, but that is the middle school Hazel is zoned for. I have a feeling that that same 8th grader might still be there when she finally goes. I need to move out of the ghetto.
By the way, when is a school lock-down a drill?
I am pretty sure it was the same principal that shut my internet down. She didn't want me to expose this story. I think I might need to dig a little deeper. There might be more than meets the eye. (Yes, that is a Transformer reference. Pretty sure she is a transformer.)

Hey I was at school about two weeks ago and was getting ready to leave and all the exits were blocked and we were advised to stay inside so I naturally went out in the courtyard to watch all the news camera along with the police helicopter hoovering over. It seems some kid and bananza high whom we hare a field with, shot some kid and hopped the wall onto CSN campus. I have heard this happenning almost every week for the last month. I think that little bastard with the bb gun should be......I will leave it at that. Dont want to get in more trouble

I'm glad you and Hazel weren't killed. Keep an eye on that BB-gun kid... it might be a BB-gun today, but tomorrow it'll be a sling shot, next day it'll be a paint ball gun... where do we draw the line?

I think it all really starts with water guns. We need to get rid.....and do it tonight!

Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me...Judge not lest ye be judged, everybody!! I am sure he had a perfectly good excuse to shoot a kid in the mouth with a bb gun. Maybe that kid owed him drug money, or knocked his baby mama, we don't know! As long as Hazel pays her drug dealer, we don't need to worry about her.
