You do indeed to step back...a bit harse and condesending...one shoe does not fit all...as such, each school and environment have unique issues, some political and some the law. So please, I personally don't think that "we're so quick to hand them over to a damned fool sheeple" is really making your point nor the truth in general...nor a view of "the great equalizer". Curious if you travel to each school and each state to truly understand the dynamics...or is it more the lines of a sound bite.

I need to chime in here...First, I think we can all agree that the article is poorly written at best. It gives no mention to the location of where the bullet was found other than a side walk...or to what condition it was in...(smashed from people stepping on it, corrosion do to it being outside for a long time, blah, blah, blah).
School lock downs I agree for the most part are downright stupid. Buttttt....if you were a school administrator, how would you handle 2000+ high schoolers in an "emergency"????

When I was in school it was not uncommon to see about a quarter of the rigs in the parking lot with rifles and shotguns in the rifle racks ...I had shells in all the pockets of my levi's,dropped em on the counter when sorting change for a lunch...the lunch ladies would laugh a tell me to bring em a rabbit and they would fix it up!Now days you would end up in prison.

...until the next bullet shows up.
“We have searched every locker in the building and all the areas and we are perfectly safe and secure,”
There was no emergency. A bullet on the sidewalk does not require a lockdown. A bullet in a gun in the hands of a deranged teen stomping through the school hallways is an emergency.

A school lockdown is great IF you know there is a hostile with a gun, AND you know that person is NOT in the school. Otherwise you are terrorizing people or sacrificing innocents to CYA.
Personally, if there is an incident at or near my child's school, he is so much safer with me than locked in a room waiting to be executed.

This was not an emergency--I would have picked up the bullet and turned it over to the school RSO.

I think this was overboard.
