Unless more details are given it sounds like a witch hunt.

Maybe theyll try bring in an exclusion zone around schools for any members of the male species

A Belconnen primary school? Gee that narrows it down. This is getting a bit hysterical. We had a big false alarm at our “Belconnen primary school” just because a kid thought he was being called by another kid’s parent.

    Don’t forget that incident where parents contacted police saying a man was seen at a school taking kids to his SUV, and it turned out that he was the father of the kids and he had taken them there on their first day after moving to Canberra.
