As a general comment, mass (or limited, for that matter) casualty incidents - which Coyote Creek thankfully was not - are best (perhaps, only) curtailed by a citizenry that, when they see something (potentially or probably) threatening from deranged adults or "troubled" kids will say something because banning this or taking away that is not the foundation of a free and open society. More importantly, banning/taking away won't work. Unfounded reports (of deranged/troubled individuals) by likewise trouble-making, vindictive and 'score-settling' vendetta mongers will have to be publicly announced and proportionately punished. Without responsible, reliable and timely observational reporting, of adults and kids, Coyote Creek-type situations will, regrettably, continue.

Rick's comments are well taken. We should expose the names of anyone who is responsible for making threats such as this. Parents and their kids should be shamed and made known to the public.

Al - I neglected to include the concept of parental liability - - that is - - if a child makes a terrorist-type threat or actually perpetrates such an act both the child AND the parents should - must - be held strictly accountable. Parents know, or should know, what their kids are up to.

I live one block away from that school, which I consider it an outstanding one, since my daughter attended it (k-5), (and it has great teachers!) and agree with both Rick and Al ("We should expose the names of anyone who is responsible for making threats such as this.")

San Ramon has been an outstanding town(now a small city) for kids to live and go to school, and I would, like many people living in it, like to keep it that way.

So, let me get this straight, if an eight year wrote this you would want both the child and the parents to be shunned? Or a ten year old? Or a twelve year old? What happens when it is your child and you and your child are shunned for something stupid your child did? Discipline is to be expected, like anything stupid children do. And children do stupid things all the time. That is how they learn right from wrong. Because you told them not to do something doesn't mean they won't test the waters.
