Hastings Area Schools closed Friday after threat

HASTINGS, Mich. — Hastings Area Schools will be closed Friday due to a threat.

The district says Thursday on Facebook that the closure was prompted by an unspecified threat that targeted the high school.

This is the second threat in a month to cause a closure at the district.  The threat that closed Hastings schools March 5 also targeted the high school.

Hastings Superintendent Carrie Duits says the threat is separate from the one earlier this month.  Weekend activities at the district are not impacted by the closure.

Threats this week at West Michigan schools also prompted closures in Paw Paw and Bangor.  Investigators say the threat at Paw Paw was found to be “very credible” and a teenage boy was arrested after guns and bomb-making materials were found at his home.

    These teens make me even more scared for the future. Maybe we start looking at the parents to blame, and not gun control and NRA. How about some real parenting. What possesses a child to act like this and make threats.

    All these school treats across the nation must be costing the Democrats a fortune. Of course when it’s funded by George Soros it’s pocket change.
    The Dems have declared war on the first and second amendments. Think about it, every time the Dems ( socialists) start their anti second amendment BS school attacks skyrocket.
    How do children organize national protests ? How do children arrange bus transportation for thousands of “protesters ” ? . How do children pay for transportation, food, lodging and fuel ?
    They simply can’t. Follow the money.
    Yesterday a school resource officer stopped yet another school attack because he was armed, did you see anything about it on the Clinton NewsNetwork? Not a peep because it doesn’t fit the false narrative.

    Dust off the history books ( pre liberal revision) EVERY single country that has allowed their government to ban guns suffered millions of executions by their own government.
    The libs will tell you its false that Hitler banned guns. Well it’s a fact, my grandparents lived through it. One day they came for the guns. The next they came for you. 11 million dead.

      And in every country that ever banned guns, it was soldiers and police that collected the guns and murdered the people that didn’t hand them over. Soldiers and police deserve all of your abhorrence.

            Here’s a history of what happens after governments have disarmed their citizens:

            1911 – Turkey disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1915 – 1917 they murdered 1.5 million Armenians.

            1929 – Russia disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1929 – 1953 they murdered 20 million Russians.

            1935 – China disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1948 – 1952 they murdered 20 million Chinese.

            1938 – Germany disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1939 – 1945 they murdered 16 million Jews.

            1956 – Cambodia disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1975 – 1977 they murdered 1 million Educated people.

            1964 – Guatamala disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1964 – 1981 they murdered 100,000 Mayan Indians.

    I don’t care what Mommy and Daddy say about their kid. When things like this happen and the person making the threat can be identified for sure, five years minimum in jail mandatory. What these ‘look at me’ people start seeing what absolutely will happen if they’re caught, I’m guessing that the prank that isn’t a prank will tend to slow dramatically.

    I wish they had school shootings when I was in school. I never wanted to go to that slave camp. Now kids get a day off every week. Must be nice.
