They shut down 4 of the 6 schools and found no evidence of any danger and 1 for a low risk incident.  Also fark you for making me read a Sun article.

Canada takes things seriously when it comes to threats and we stop and investigate.  Crazy notion eh?

Well, you don't have as many of them either.  If we shut down schools every time some tea bagger or gun nut threatened to start killing people they would be closed permanently.

When I was a kid we would have NEVER had school if that's all it took to shut it down. Of course that was before telephones so we would have had to mail in the threats.

Knowing Canada Post, the schools would have received December bomb threats sometime around mid-July.

Well, were the people who called it in atleast very polite? I hear you can take them seriously depending on if they say Please, Sir/Ma'am, Thank you, and Aboot a lot.

Also if they talk about mounties or moose.

Pff. Those six 'threats' were just teens wanting the last day of school before Christmas vacation off. RCMP investigates these to a) be sure, and b) dissuade teens from ever getting similar 'ideas'. It wasn't the end of the world.

When I was in 7th grade an 11th grader was found with a handgun and told to take it home and be back in time for his next class or else. It was Catholic school in the early 60's, so he did as he was told and was back in plenty of time.

Maybe the answer is to bring back nuns.

*shudders*

Never mind.

Well, to be fair eh, they didn't go off, and kill anybody. And statistically, we are required to kill at least 140 people a year with guns so the list works right and we can go, "holy crap, look at the US number!!!!!".

Didn't you get the Fark memo?

Conservative label+Liberal made up right wing stereotype= fact

The Tea Party rallies I've been to locally were a lot more peaceful and cleaner than the OWS rally I also visited. I also saw no signs inciting shootings, violence, and racism at one and nothing but that at the other, can you guess which one was which?

Back to your regular Fark programming.

Dang tea baggers of Canada. Next will be the TSA in the schools, preparing your kids for a lifetime of unlawful fondling.
Who calls in threat on the last couple of days of school anyways? We think it could be one of them people who fails at math and would rather be at home with the scared sheep.

/Seriously, there are some very disturbed tea baggers in Canada. Some are on FoxNews North(suntv news).

Yeah we just shut that shiat right down. It's a great way for high school kids to take the morning off.

The real question is, did the cops find any evidence that these threats were backed up with anything real?

When I was in 3rd or 4th grade (so, '93-'95), we had a full on bomb threat. We all filed outside, waited while some police searched the building for about a half hour, and then went back inside and finished our day.

I honestly don't know if that's a good or stupid thing.

You're a moron. The Tea Party is not a threat to anyone or anything except the liberal agenda. Which is why you're behaving as if they're some sort of group ready to shoot...

And just to demonstrate how completely stupid you are? Whom do you think wants to put armed guards or teachers at schools to protect kids... the Tea Party or Occupy Wall Street? Think hard now.

Does anyone remember a time when kids didn't shoot up their schools, people didn't feel the need to demand the police and government handle every aspect of everything, and we stood up to bullies who tried to rule us through fear?

What's more, we've stopped giving a shiat about each other, so the whack job who is clearly crazy who even tells someone that they're going to do something bad (and the Secret Service did a study of school shooters and the like, finding out that people knew well in advance something was going to happen and in most cases what was going to happen) just either gets ignored because people don't want to get involved, or the people are unwilling to ruin the person's life.

Lets face it. If we stopped being a nation that ignored each other and started actually giving a shiat, how much of this crap would stop?

It doesn't take a gun to stop some of the violence and misbehavior, just people paying attention and willing to actually DO something to intervene.

As a rugged individualist, I like the fact that around here I have neighbors I know, trust, talk to, and whom I know would help out if need be. Sure they're nosey and anything you do is All over the neighborhood five minutes after it happens. But when the local white trash kid of someone started dealing, we had him busted and out within a day of his starting that shiat.

Guess what I'm trying to say is that if we each actually cared for one another and did more to build community, the rate of this crap would go way down, too.

What's amusing is that almost every kid at the school where my office is says they feel safer and like having the two police officers in the building, and would feel safer if they had people permanently there to patrol and keep an eye on things. Crazy, I know.

Nobody seems to address the real problem with this solution. Namely that there is nothing preventing the same mentally ill people who are committing these mass murders now from becoming one of those people who is hired to carry guns in the school. The same processes by which the mentally ill are supposed to be screened out of getting jobs in schools and screened out of beign able to obtain guns are the very same processes which will be in place if this idea is implemented.

Unless we first address the issue of mental illness and the treatment of the mentally ill in this country, it won't matter what laws are enacted, mass murders will continue at the same (or at a greater) rate at which they now occur.

Ideally, there really needs to be a three-pronged attack: security in schools, tightening of gun restrictions in general, and vast improvement on the availability of mental health care.
