Anybody know the details on: Assault w/Deadly Weapon – March 23 – 8:31 a.m., 500 block of Merriewood Dr.?? This is drop off time at Burton Valley Elementary.
Hey, Jim… you parents, you miss nothing! Yes, we believe this was a “bumping” or a “nudging” by one person in a car. Not sure of the nature of injuries, if any, but believe someone was upset enough to call for the police. It kind of slipped off our radar but we’ll ask around and see if there were any substantive developments.
Sounds like the deadly weapon was a Suburban driver in yoga pants
Blotter…Blotter…Blotter…blotto…bleater…Bueller?…Bueller?…Bueller?…What a great country that we can have words like police “blotter” and no one has to go to jail for laughing. George Carlin would like that.
Nudging! Yes… LOTS of NUDGING going on!!
I’m not surprised. Pick up and drop off is like gladiatorial combat on most days.
I get nudged all the time. Usually it’s someone telling me to keep quiet. School drop off is the worst – lots of big cars, running kids, amped up parents — they should hand out valium to drivers as they approach the school.
Let the kids WALK to school. It’s healthier, and in a nice area, you’ll be just fine. Even Marc Klass (who’s a straight shooter, and his only daughter was abducted) said “as along as they use the buddy system.” Parents driving their children to school (regardless of whether you’re working or not) is the worst thing for your children. Walking creates independence and security… something you will carry with you for life. Drive them on a rainy day.
Walking to school is GOOD. It’s a little scary to a fifties kid to see how these kids are coddled. I know there are more people and more threats than ever out there, but I agree with Danielle. Use common sense, team up with buddies, and reduce the nudging and helicoptering.
