Metal Detectors "Fail" Again
Is this a nationwide phenomenon? Or are these things unplugged and unmanned far more than the public is permitted to know about?
- The freshman girl told police she was "tired of getting picked on," so she took a mace to school.
Not Mace, the pepper spray.
Mace, as in a medieval weapon.
A long wooden stick attached to a metal chain with a spiked ball on the end.
- Charmella Greer of the Gary Community School Corp. said disciplinary action will be taken. As for how the student got the weapon past metal detectors, Greer said, "I have no idea. ..."
We have an idea. And we also heard the metal detectors at CVS were unmanned because the single security guard running the machines had to take someone to the Dean's office and left the devices unattended, leaving a critical window in which to smuggle a gun in. What else has been smuggled in that no one knows about yet?
