Rant coming on...
Okay, so my High School went into Lockdown mode today. Not extreme, "hide under your dest, the mad man is in the hallway" lockdown, but just "don't go out of the building" lockdown. Are they more paranoid after that whole thing at V. Tech? Maybe, and I believe there was even a copycat threat sent to a local University branch. So if the school wants to keep us locked up and safe, then good for them. I'd appreciate it, especially if some madman with a gun is on the loose.
Thing is, I don't know what happened, and I'm angry about it. All the teachers have been very "hush hush" about the whole things. They haven't said a thing, just told us to stay indoors and only leave school through one set of doors and all this stuff, but NOTHING about what the threat actually is? Even if they leave out some of the details, shouldn't they at least give us a brief idea of what the threat is? They never really said there was a threat, just ordered us to do this and that without telling us why.
I don't like this... I don't like it at all. Sure, maybe us High Schooler's aren't completely mature and adult-like, but we're not a bunch of third graders. Tell us if there's a threat and tell us what the threat is. maybe we can cope. Maybe if you tell us, we won't blow the whole thing off as unimportant. Tell us and maybe we'll be on out guard after school. It's all fine and well to see us safely off the campus where they no longer hold responsibility over us, but I have no idea what the problem is. Is it some escaped criminal, or just a threat?
What I want is answers, just like Jaller in BL1 (funny how I can somehow connect everything in life to Bionicle) I see no reason why complete silence will keep us safer, so I see no arguement for what the teachers are doing. And hopefully, in an hour or two, I'll see the report on the news and know what's really going on. Amazingly enough, I haven't found anything useful on the internet so far.
So now my little rant is over and I'm going to glare at the TV and mumble angrily under my breath.
Edit: Okay, confirmed, it was
a phone threat, but I wasn't told that in school...
