Student Straight Posterizes A Teacher, School Promptly Goes Into Lockdown

This is it. This is the first time in my life I’m going to be a ‘back in my day’ person. Yes, I, at 23 years old, am already saying bullshit like ‘back in my day.’ Is it a sign of the times or a sign of my impending maturity? I’m going to go with the former because I can tell you right now, if I straight yammed on a teacher when I was in high school, I’d get in-school suspension for a day. Two days max. Apparently, in 2016 a harmless prank is enough to put an entire school in a lockdown and, in the process, worry an entire town.

Via NBC:

Hamden High School was placed on lockdown and evacuated this morning after an altercation was reported and police said a student making “basketball” moves prompted the response.

Police said a school employee reported hearing someone walking toward her, then saw a teenage boy raise his fist as if he was going to punch her, so she hurried her pace to get away and alerted coworkers.

The school resource officer investigated and police said the student was running in the hallway and made believe he was dunking a basketball when the school employee turned around, according to police.

Hamden High School students were brought to Hamden Middle School during the lockdown and have been allowed back into their own school.

Overall lack of awareness from the people in charge of this school. You disrupt the faculty and students, you scare the shit out of the parents and the community, you probably cost the district some money (total guess), and you waste an entire school day. That teacher, whoever they are, needs a reality adjustment, and whoever is running the school needs to take a Xanax, because this is the definition of an overreaction.

Note: This is NOT the incident or even the same school. This is just a video of some kid yamming on his teacher to give you a visual of what this might have looked like.
