Student with a bomb at Lanyon High?

By johnboy 21 February 2012 23

Around 1.15pm today, police were called to Lanyon High School after reports of a 15-year-old student making threats against others.

The school followed procedure and the student was contained within a classroom while other students were relocated from that area into a nearby hall.

The student then ran from the classroom and dropped his school bag within the grounds. The bag appeared to contain a device of some sort.

The student then fled on foot into some storm water drains nearby. He was pursued on foot by police and a teacher and was finally apprehended some distance from the school.

He was taken into custody in Flegg Crescent, Gordon and conveyed to Tuggeranong Police Station where enquiries are ongoing.

The SRS Bomb Response Team attended the high school to examine the suspicious device within the bag. This is ongoing and will result in traffic issues within the area due to police cordons.

So…police called to school to respond to threatening, bomb-wielding hooligan.

Was this a *public* school, by any chance?

Clive Palmer, is that you?

I hope Wayne Swan gets his finger out of his broken glass, put his money where his mouth is and sends all you billionaires and your private school sympathisers to gulags, where you’ll be put to work building an NBN to nowhere alongside members of the Murdoch media conspiracy.

Seriously though – some of Australia’s greatest crackpots and serial killers went to private schools. In part I blame the Soggy Sao. See http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=soggy%20sao

What annoy’s me is some kid drops his bag while evading the cops and they feel the need to cordon off a suburb and call the bomb squad. Over react much? How many people out there do you think have bomb making skills?

Making explosive devices is very easy.

I’m sure you had a great view from your armchair, but if I was in the area, I’d be happy for them to play it safe.

Thank goodness little Dimity and Nigel don’t have to mix with those horrible ordinary people.
