    Mother Threatens School Shooting At Copperas Cove Elementary - KXXV-TV News Channel 25 - Central Texas News and Weather for Waco, Temple, Killeen | My daughter and the neighbor's little girl told me that Friday afternoon their school was on lockdown. I asked them what happened, they said they didn't know but the teachers were told to lock the door, turn out the lights, and get out of sight. Both of them said their teachers armed themselves with a big pair of scissors in their back pockets. Yeah you read that right, freakin' scissors. A woman who's kid had been taken by CPS was threatening to shoot up the school and the teachers grabbed scissors. The school is 2 miles from the police station, and yet the woman was able to get away before the cops could get there. I am so angry. I plan on going to the next school board meeting and also petitioning for armed security.

    That's horrible, I don't have kids of my own but I'm sure I would be just as upset if I were in your shoes.

    We were notified by a generic robo-call on Friday evening, after all of the schools were closed. My elderly mom was waiting in line to pick the 2 girls up and no one came out to notify the parents waiting in line of a potential threat. My mom didn't even see the cops. My mom always gets there extra early so she is one of the first cars to pick up kids. She was as close to the back of the school as you can get.
