Fresh Prince places schools on lockdown

Recommended Posts

AMBRIDGE, Pa. ? Schools across Beaver County were placed on lockdown Thursday after one person misheard a student's voicemail.

Police said a worker calling to confirm a doctor's appointment with an Ambridge High School student heard the theme song to the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" when she attempted to call. The worker said she called police when she misheard the lyrics -- which she claimed said "shooting people outside of school."

The actual lyrics to the song say "shooting some b-ball outside of school."

The call to 911 forced the entire district into lockdown for about 30 minutes and police said they detained the 19-year-old student for three hours while searching his locker, before determining that it was all one big misunderstanding.

"He was afraid and embarrassed. Obviously staff at the doctor's office was embarrassed about the whole thing too," said Ambridge police Officer Mike Natale.

..and said, "we're locking down the school because we like to pretend we care."

Okay, a bit of a stretch.

What kind of person doesn't recognise the Fresh Prince intro? :rofl:

On a serious note why would someone who was planning to shoot up a School have his plan as his ringtone?

Something akin to this happened here this week.

Setup: this school is within a mile of the Selfridge Air National Guard base, a sprawling point of departure for fighters, transports, bombers etc. Very high security 24/7.

Event: one morning a guy walks into a nearby school in camo fatigues, tactical jacket etc. but with an empty holster. He's a former student in the National Guard on his 2 week active duty stint, working midnight shift security at the base. In his off time he went back to his school to get a job reference letter he'd arranged for from his former counselor. No biggie, and Guardsmen in uniform are in the area all the time.

Night shift janitor leaving duty sees him, panics & tells day janitor who calls in the cavalry.

By the time half the city's cops, helicopters. & the SWAT truck arrive the guy's back home cracking a cold one. Schools are closed & put on lockdown, etc. etc.

Later the circumstances were figured out and a "never mind" issued :rofl:

So would these actions be a sign that it is illegal to have a message on your phone saying ," blah blah blah shooting people outside of school....." ?
