Empty Rifle Case Scares the Piss Out of Dana Hills High School

Not the rifle case in question but one sold at finer retail firearms establishments.

Anyone missing an empty rifle case? Because one was found just before noon Thursday in Dana Point. In the Dana Hills High School parking lot, prompting a four-hour campus lockdown, frantic texts between students and their parents and, reportedly, the conversion of classroom sinks into urinals because kids were forbidden to leave class to use restrooms.

A room-to-room search of the campus at 3333 Golden Lantern St. produced no weapon or gunman, and the lockdown was lifted just before 4 p.m., according to Lt. Jeff Hallock, the Orange County Sheriff's spokesman.

Must've been quite a scene, man: as a SWAT team and guard dogs combed through the campus, frightened students huddled in their classrooms, no doubt spooked by highly publicized school shootings recently. The bit about the makeshift pisseries was related to a KCAL/Channel 9 reporter.

While it all came to an end with a mystery wrapped in an enigmatic empty rifle case, I did notice that as this was going down in Dana Point, 60 miles away in the San Diego County community of Clairemont John Muir Elementary School was on a lockdown due to a man being seen by pupils pointing a rifle at a playground. A shirtless fellow was taken into custody.

You don't suppose ...?

Huh. I read a story yesterday that it was an empty shell casing, which is a pretty wildly different situation.

The police should lift prints from the rifle case and fine the person who owns it. Kids should not be subjected to that type of terror.

Schools need to invest in a good surveillance system. Schools are becoming out of control. It doesn't matter if the school is in a poor area or wealthy. When the intent is there...its bound to happen.

Whoever that person was, he violated nothing, and he was not one who subjected the kids to terror. But I fully agree that those who did, should pay the price.
