AP: Churchgoers Flee Over Possible Threat In CThttp://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/...
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.
