We’ve gone F***ing insane! Schools consider crutches dangerous weapons

MassPrivateI

Pennsylvania – Allegheny Valley, Fox Chapel Area and Riverview school districts briefly locked down some or all of their buildings this morning after a report that someone made threats against the districts.

But O’Hara Township Police said the incident was a “huge misunderstanding” and no threats against any schools were made.  

According to WPXI-TV, O’Hara police received a call that a man at RIDC Park was overheard talking on his cell phone, saying he was going to “shoot everyone at the school.” Police had trouble pinpointing the man’s location from his cell phone so both districts were advised to lock down their campuses as a precaution just after 8:30 a.m. The lockdowns were lifted by 9:30 a.m.

As it turns out, the man’s daughter, who attends Springdale High School, was briefly turned away from school because she was walking on crutches and they can be considered dangerous weapons.

No charges will be filed against the man. The girl soon obtained a doctor’s note and was allowed into school.

  1. Grandpa showing up at a school recital or play with his walker must put that whole friggin’ state into lockdown…bunch of pussies. Guess LEO has nothing better to do when they can’t TASER grandpa or a crippled school kid.

    I’m sure this incident will help them secure a MRAP for future use.

  2. “But O’Hara Township Police said the incident was a “huge misunderstanding” and no threats against any schools were made.”

    Wow! That’s EXACTLY what the Round Rock police said after they sent in SWAT in my workplace and then said they had the wrong building. Don’t worry though, just a “huge misunderstanding”.

    Hey everyone, I just beat up a guy who I thought attacked my wife. Whoops! It was actually a cop who was merely asking her a question. My bad. Just a “huge misunderstanding”.

    Yep, that excuse works for me, too, ALL the time. NOT!
