Just another day in your average American public school.
School officials at Roy MIller High School in Corpus Christi, TX placed the school on lockdown for approximately 90 minutes because they received a “threatening recording” that was apparently first relayed to local police.
As the recording was in Spanish, with poor sound quality, no one seemed to know exactly what it said, but the school apparently sounded enough like Roy Miller that it warranted making everyone fear for their lives for an hour and a half.
The lockdown was lifted after no apparent threat was detected. Besides the fact that students experienced severe trauma during the incident (fearing for your life will do that to a person, after all), 90 minutes of class time was wasted (you know, the main reason children go to school, or at least, this is what we’re led to believe) – typically two classes’s worth.
While, yes, mass shootings, bombings, and the like could happen anywhere, they are more and more likely happening at local government indoctrination centers, also known as public schools. Officials are always on alert. Your children are always fearful.
