    Lockdowns at Kalamazoo county RESA

    A parent visited his child at RESA three times.
    Knowing that he was obeying the law and posed no threat, the superintendent locked down the building on the 2nd and 3rd visits and had a cop follow him everywhere he went.

    Lockdowns said to be due to security procedures put in place a couple of years ago. (if Campbell is 'just following necessary procedure', why didn't he lock the building down the first time? If it isn't necessary, why did he do it the next two times???) I suspect Campbell didn't think a law abiding parent was reason for a lockdown, and the board ordered him otherwise when they heard about the first visit.

    Public meeting scheduled tomorrow. Any chance of getting straight answers as to whose bright idea it was to lock down the building, and why it wasn't needed the first time, but was needed every successive time?

    Protocol. Every time. Until the people stop fearing the law abiding citizen, this will happen every time.
    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

    They should just gun down all of these types of folks on sight.

    We all know what Geo. Carlin thought of the children .... LOL

    Personally I would then start to visit my child every day at random times for the next few weeks. I would think after another dozen or so calls the police and administration will get tired of responding and realize how dumb the lockdown in this case is. The police may even start sending the district bills for unneeded, frivolous calls.

    The paranoia reaction of other parents is a result of progressive indoctrination against the 2A and guns. The other reason: America has become a country where people do not trust anyone anymore.

    Well, if you listen to the local news, yes a few people from our side of things did attend, including Tom Lambert from MOC. However, the paranoia was rampant, and of course nothing was resolved because at least Kalamazoo Public Schools recognize that they are a local unit of Govt, and therefore pre-empted from making their own rules under state law, but they will continue to harass any parent that OC's on KPS property.
