ok i live in elkhart county, ind, and i was watching the news (something i don't normally do!) and they had a a news article that i'm not to sure about. they had the local police department for elkhart and st. joe counties in ind had gotten an anonymous tip that 5 schools and a total of 20 students were going to get shot out of the two counties. the cops aren't saying what schools, (the lady said they had a list telling which 5 schools and the names of the 20 students) or the names of the students and they refuse to talk to the media. it's suppose to happen mon. i know one mom who is keeping her kids home and the crossing guard told me that she spoke to a bunch of others who aren't going either.
i spoke to the school and they told me that there was going to be cops everywhere for the rest of the school year. that they have been locking down the schools for the past two weeks. the news lady said that it was going to be the high schools that get hit.
my oldest (who is in 5th) said her classmate said that it's all over facebook and that their school is on that list. i called the school to let them know what was going around and that's when they told me about the extra cops that's been hanging around the schools.
my question: do you think it's a hoax? (hubby does) would you send your kids to school after talking to the school? or would you just keep them home?
i would want to keep them home, but i have a bunch of appointments i have to go to and we have to walk. what if the person drives by and sees the girls with me and just starts shooting at us instead of the school?
plus if you can find anything about this please let me know. because they haven't aired anything about this for the past three days and i can't find it.
