I would start a new fashion trend. Nothing in the dress code about wearing bullet proof jackets to school, right?

Um..

..they think Dubya is too "pacifist" and , I presume, wimpish?

Forget the death threats...these guys are also sick in the head in more than one way.

CALL THE POLICE. NOW.

her childrens names arent on the list..its her nephew and his friend...
while they are not your children there is nothing wrong with creating awareness about this.
there is nothing wrong with you getting involved...
even the kids creating this hit list are in danger...danger of becoming people who are going to be put in jail and go on to ruin thier own lives...
there needs to be serious invervention here..not only by the police but by psychologists...they need to get into these young terrorists heads. the kids responsible for the lists....where the hell are THIER parents..what are they going to do about this?
it would rock thier world if a group of parents knocked on thier door and demanded they control thier kids!

I read your post more carefully and see that adults are involved in the militia......that is so fucked up putting kids on the "hit list"
they should all be serving time.

I thought of another factor in this, and why not only the school but the city itself doesn't want this to spread. The city, well, really it's a city that annexed an entire county, used to have a hick moocow rep, and in recent years has been building up with businesses and upscale housing. This is changing their image for the better (in their opinion) and the money the taxes haul in is a huge amount. Now, right around the school, and not far from the backwoods area where this militia operates, there are 2 housing developments going up 'starting in the low $300,000's and one that boasts 'an exclusive community, starting in the $500,000's.

So there it is to me. Once again, it's about MONEY. They don't want prospective high income buyers to get wind of this, not just for the school itself but for the entire city. I mean, who'd want to spend a half a million bucks to move to a place with a wild bunch of gun toting yokels who want to oust the US gov't running around in the forest across the street? Aha. I think that's it. But, as others have mentioned, it will be much more embarrassing if something happens.

Really, the media is who needs to get on this, there is nothing the school or city will do, I don't think. The media doesn't care about their money and rep, they only want a good story. So that's who needs to get on this. Honestly, I am terrified to be the one, yes, I am scared of getting on the hit list myself if they find out. So I'm really torn. But somebody needs to act fast. Wednesday is the big day, and I just realized, that's Hitler's birthday

U2Kitten,

The media won't tell who their sources are, so you are safe there. And you should be able to call in an anonymous tip to the police. Name names, give all the details you can.

What about your nephew's parents, and his friend's parents? They are aware of what's been happening, right? There is no harm in talking to a police officer about this, even if only for your peace of mind.

That is perfectly understandable, especially in a small town, as word can get around very fast. I second the advice MadelynIris gave. Get an anonymous tip to the police and then call various media sources (even if it is also anonymous).

Think about it. Can you live with yourself if you do nothing and something very bad does happen? It sucks that you are in a situation where you have to answer that question, but unfortunately you are.

not only is it hitler's birthday, it's also the anniversary of columbine.

kitten, as a parent of this age group myself, you are frustrating the fuck out of me. call the police. if something goes down at that school on wednesday, you're going to feel a hell of a lot worse than you do now.

99.99% of the reports schools get re: a potential shooting turn out to be false. odds are nothing will happen. but on that slim chance that something were to happen, and you saw the signs before hand and never reported it, you'd have trouble living with yourself.

contact the FBI and the local media immediately. make it annonymous if you don't want to leave your name.

Y'all are right, I would feel very guilty. I'm going to try to get others involved too. Right now the boys are in hiding, out of state at a friend's farm. I'll let you know when there are updates.

I think that's a good idea (to have them be out of the area). I certainly hope there is a quick and definate resolution to this problem.

A lame note went home Monday claiming the school was 'taking the treats of danger to our students seriously'. The seniors decided to make yesterday their skip day, and about half the school never even showed up. A cop- just one- was continually driving up and down in front of the building. Some kids are thinking it is still going down at a time to be determined, sigh.

So something FINALLY hit the media

http://home.hamptonroads.com/stories...309&ran=218204

but this doesn't even touch the real source of it, the militia- they need to know that. Much of what this girl says is not the way it really is. It is nothing racial or jock related, most of the hit list are white and do not play sports.
