My son's school is in lockdown!!! (Connecticut)
N/A | 5/17/2013 | Kosmickitty

Posted on 05/17/2013 5:42:30 AM PDT by KosmicKitty

Just got a text message from my 16 year old

North Haven High School in lockdown due to a home invasion on Elm Street (same street as school)

I'm sure it's just a precaution, but moms still worry.

And we live right next door to the school, so I'm in lockdown here too :-(

Home invasion? Was it the cops themselves? How’s the family dog?

Hope they are all safe...
I would also hope my kids’ school would have a patrol officer packing a piece at the ready during a “lock down”....

I wish they had armed guards in all schools. You would think after Sandy Hook that would just be common sense.

There's very little common sense these days. No armed guards in schools. No seat belts in school buses.

NORTH HAVEN- The middle and high schools have been locked down this morning as a precaution, police said.

Sgt. Mark Grimaldi, police spokesman, said the two schools were put on lock down as a precaution because of an incident in the area. Police are looking for someone on foot in the area. No weapons are involved, Grimaldi said.

I’m glad it wasn’t your home that was invaded, and I feel sorry for the one that was. I hope they catch whoever it is. Thank goodness they locked down the school before some nut got in.

We had a prisoner escape in our area. Worked out with the trainer this morning who had brought his S&W Delta Dorce sigma Enhanced that he laid on one the tables nearby just in case. We had a group with a 12 year old that came with one of their parents. Liberals would have flipped out but everyone of us there including the 12 year old knew how to use it (he’s been hunting with grandfather). Contrary to common liberal belief, the firearm didn’t self detonate, accidentally go off, or turn the kid into a Columbine killer and we felt a lot safer...: )

Yep, ready to go - and unfortunately in our vacation home in another state.

All I've got here is a non-function ancient rifle and a black power muzzle loader that I don't have a clue how to load.

Guess I could hit them over the head with it :-)

I lived most of my life next door in Wallingford, but fled CT 15 years ago. What in blazes is happening out there?! North Haven ain’t Meriden. It ain’t even Hamden!

Things sure went downhill in North Haven since Angelo retired.

Told my son - Run, Hide, Fight - In that order.

I despise this lockdown and “wait to got shot” mentality. I teach at Gateway and I noticed that they just put up the “Gun Free Zone” signs. After some crazy girl threatened to do a “Sandy Hook” at the school!!

I teach at UNH too. At least there we have armed police.

Don’t worry, they lock-down schools now if they find a peanut butter sandwich in the cafeteria when a kid with allergies is in there.

They locked-down my kid’s school and sent everyone home when a 6th grader wrote something on a bathroom stall about blowing up the school.

its getting ridiculous.

Looks like they’ve lifted the lockdown.

I’ll listen to the IRS testimony a few more minutes then I’m heading out to my garden.

I’m pretty good with a shovel or hoe :-)

"All I've got here is a non-function ancient rifle and a black power muzzle loader that I don't have a clue how to load."

I would still keep it handy. If they come to the door, greet them with it and they will likely bug out. They don't know it isn't loaded.

Funny thing is, when I originally read it, I read Force. Didn't even catch the typo since I understood what you meant.

There's very little common sense these days. No armed guards in schools. No seat belts in school buses.

I don't want to derail the whole topic, but there's a big difference there. Armed guards in schools are a good idea, while seatbelts on school buses are a bad idea. All research and testing shows that seatbelts would not materially change injury rates in bus crashes, and would actually increase injuries. Three or four feet of webbing with a buckle on the end makes a formidable weapon in the hands of a kid. Most crash injuries are minor, and rarely is ejection from a bus ever an issue-- which is the main function of seatbelts.

You shoulda been on my bus the day crazy Micky got hold of the driver’s lead pipe.

Now that’s entertainment.

My son’s school does this often if anything happens within a block or two. However, there was no lockdown when a white-haired grandfatherly looking gentleman walked in and wandered through the hallways stealing wallets out of the teachers’ purses.

If it’s close to a school, it must be a gun-free zone. Burglars and rapists prefer those areas.

When they first started “lock downs” here I told my kids that if there was ever a lock down they were to sprint past all of the teachers and leave the school. Either meet us a a rally point or continue on to the house. I would deal with the consequences afterwards.

I'm an alumni of North Haven High School. Grew up in North Haven. Granted, I haven't been back there in over 20 years, but when I attended, the high school was not on Elm Street. I lived on Bailey Road, where Elm Street ended.

Can you tell me if they moved the high school?

Yep. They extended Elm all the way from Bailey to Sackett Point Rd

The new high school (3 story monstrosity) sits in the old athletic fields that were behind the middle school facing the new addition to Elm.

The old high School was torn down a few years ago. Now it’s baseball, lacrosse, tennis field.

Well, our high school was put on lockdown last Summer when a, um, well-intentioned teacher saw a hunter walking down the road with his gun. The school’s way out in the country surrounded by woods and pastures. Hunters aren’t unknown there.

Yah. I’ve got some mixed thoughts about the whole “lockdown” concept.

What’s -really- bad and worries me more is the default reaction at airports to evacuate everybody to the street. For everything. It’s just begging to be used by a terrorist... First leave a bag somewhere in the airport so they’ll evacuate, then once everyone is packed along the street outside... Up drives the truck with a thousand pounds of ANFO and a load of scrap metal. Bad move.

Wow! That's a long extension.

If you would, can you tell me if 110 Bailey Road still has a house on it? That's where I grew up. My father and grandfather built it so many years ago.
