      I was wondering about that statement. As a parent of a high schooler we were told the threat was for the alternative school.

    So glad he was found and arrested… this happens far too often where we live here in Kansas… and it’s gotten to the point where many won’t take it seriously… So glad that my nieces and family who attend and work there were kept safe.

    Who the hell is this guy and why would he do that? Crazy.

    Our kids are either going to be really good under stressful situations like this in the future or they won’t take them seriously. Both scenarios are equally disturbing.

    I moved to Florida from Freeport 41 years ago. There is way more crime here. I was looking out my window a couple of weeks ago and this nice looking black guy was walking down the street with a rifle parallel to the ground. I was aghast. This was a nice neighborhood. What in the world is wrong with people? I am so saddened by the mass shooting that happened in Broward County Wednesday. All of those beautiful children senselessly murdered. Why? Something has to change. People have to get back to loving one another.
