So yesterday at Wachusett Regional High School there was this whole hell-a-baloo:

I’ve heard some unconfirmed rumors about kids with knives, who knows. All we know is that two kids were arrested and the school day was severely disrupted when the school went into lockdown mode. Wachusett Regional is the biggest high school in Central Mass, and even though the five towns that go there are extremely low on the ratch-o-meter, you’re gonna get some dooshnozzles with a population that big.
To their credit WRHS administration posted an announcement on their Facebook page and sent out an email to parents at 10:45
Boom. Problem solved.
Most parents would be satisfied with this quick communication and handling of a serious situation. But the thing about these town schools is that nothing is EVER good enough for a small but vocal handful of parents.
So let me get this straight. Your kid was texting you “fantastical rumors” while the adults were doing the job we pay them to do, and this is the school’s fault? Oh yea, that makes sense.
And how exactly were the cops and administration supposed to explain to 2,000 students in locked classrooms what was “going on?” As if that’s the job of the police and the schools. To make sure kids have immediate information on ongoing police matters.
What if the kid with the gun was in your child’s class? You want them to make an announcement on the loud speaker that Billy Rutland is strapped and plans on taking a few people out with him? Yea, that wouldn’t cause a panic or anything like that. We should leave these sorts of tactical decisions up the mob of angry suburban parents.
Oh good, another parent whose child sent her unconfirmed rumors is blaming it on the school instead of her kid. Hey Julie, you know who I can tell your kid was safe? Because there were 20 cruisers parked outside of the school from the Holden, Paxton, and State Police. Ya know those guys with guns and badges? They’re trained for situations like this. It’s what they do. Perhaps you should consider letting them do their job.
Nah, that makes too much sense. What they should do instead of resolving the situation is bust out their rolodex and call you up on your landline to give you updates every 15 minutes.
They made the Facebook announcement at 10:45. It’s time stamped underneath the post you’re commenting on:
“Nothing is ever good enough for me.”
Ya know where shit like this doesn’t happen? Worcester. Because parents in Worcester are conditioned to fall asleep to the sweet sounds of gunshots and the off-key showtunes of our world famous prostitutes. Just like we saw in Quabbin the other day with all these whiny parents complaining about their kids having to make up work after trips to Disney World, this entitled parent syndrome is something that mainly exists in the burbs. Nothing the schools do is ever good enough for them.
Anyway, the kids who were arrested should have to pay some huge fine to the school. Obviously they won’t be able to afford it so make their parents fork it over. They stopped public education for two hours, something the taxpayers of these towns pay for, because they wanted to play suburban gangsta-gangsta in school. They owe the taxpayers that money back. If we start cracking down on kids who do stuff like this and call in bomb threats, we might actually see less people do it because it won’t be worth the cost.
We urge you to support the following local businesses. They provide terrific services for the community!
