AP: Churchgoers Flee Over Possible Threat In CT

Churchgoers quickly left services Sunday in Newtown, Conn. after reports of a bomb threat, according to the Associated Press. It's unclear if there was an actual threat at the church, which is not far from where Friday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School took place, or if it was a hoax.

Police in SWAT gear arrived at the St. Rose of Lima Church not far from the elementary school where 20 kids and six adults were killed Friday.

There was no official report from police about the threat or evacuation.

What the hell is going on in this country? This madness has got to stop.

My wife and I are both teachers. Today we took our 2-1/2 year old daughter to a "Breakfast with Santa" event. I spent to whole time watching the doors and exits, and looking around the room at all of the other parents with their children. The grieving parents of Newtown were all that I could think about.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
