Wtf is wrong with people?

I got another automated call tonight from the county superintendent with schools. She's been keeping us all up to date on security measures this week. She said tonight that there have been several bomb threats and shooting threats but that they were all investigated and turned out to be false. One arrest was made apparently.

Why do people do stupid things like this? Call and make bomb threats after such a horrible tragedy? How sadistic and cruel are some people? Has your county experienced an increase in this dumb shit this week also?

  • Like I said earlier, there have been 17 threats against Clark County schools. I am keeping my kids home on Friday because of it. I hate that we live in a world where kids have to worry about being murdered at school!

    Because kids are stupid. They think nonsense like that is funny. A joke. Their chance to ride on someone else's 15 mins of fame.

  • I mean, I know people are stupid and that people have been calling in bomb threats for a long time. I remember in high school having to evacuate so many times due to bomb threats. It was scary, especially after 9/11. But damn, it's the last week of school and were all shaken by what happened. I'm having hard enough time sending her as it is. Give it a rest!

  • She didnt state which schools received the threats but I wish I knew if any of them involved my child's school. I'm so on the fence about sending her back at all this week

  • If you are uncomfortable keep her home. It makes me sick that Moms have to worry about this. Hugs

  • It is a lack of respect for their fellow man. (Yes, women are included in the group of man.) Somewhere there was a lack of effort in teaching empathy and compassion. Parents have taught their children to be takers and not givers, to find fear funny, and to enjoy watching the chaos they cause.

  • I haven't heard anything from the school since Friday evening. I don't think any elementary kids (up to 4th grade) make bomb threats in general. (I could be wrong) Still, I am debating keeping my son home on Friday, because who knows what crazy people will do.
