    All LAUSD schools closed by 'credible threat' of violence

    http://touch.latimes.com/#section/-1/article/p2p-85329505/

    Officials have closed all Los Angeles Unified School District campuses Tuesday morning after receiving a "credible threat" of violence involving backpacks and packages left at campuses.

    Authorities said they plan a search operation of all of the LAUSD's more than 900 schools. The nation's second-largest school district has more than 700,000 students.

    I cannot imagine what kind of threat would get them to do such a huge response like this. It must have seemed like a very credible threat. This is going to cost them millions to search every campus.

    And unfortunately, I think that these type of threats will continue.
    What a sad world we live in.
    I am glad that the schools are closed. This could save many many lives considering they believe it to be a "credible" threat.
    IMOO.

    I heard just a few parts of the live press conference. It was an electronic threat reported by some students. Must have been very credible for them to close the whole school district. The article I posted in the Breaking News thread said the search of the schools will cover 720 sq. miles!

    School bomb threats have been around since I was a kid, but in today's atmosphere, better safe than sorry.

    If this was some dumb kid that was just trying to get out of finals, I hope he will be severely punished.

    Yesterday was the third anniversary of the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT. Locally, a high school and neighboring elementary school were placed on lockdown while LE investigated threats to two nearby businesses. The individual who made the alleged threats was taken into custody, and the lockdowns ended in the early afternoon.

    If it was a student trying to get out of finals, this student had no regard for anyone.
    Very selfish.
    IMOO.

    I would much rather be looking for a babysitter this morning than a funeral home. I'm completely supportive of erring on the side of caution.

    I was headed out to the gym when the LA Schools lockdown was reported. I'll listen for updates on my way and check out CNN while I exercise. Later...
