    Whoa!! Bomb scares/threats are not the least bit clever, cute, or funny! That kind of a thing should be treated exactly like what it is: A crime, which can result in the death of people, and should also result in arrest and a jail sentence for the perpetrator(s).

    I still remember the day back in the winter of 1967, when I was a Sophomore at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School. It was an icy-cold day, in the middle of January. It started out like a fire drill, but it turned out to be a bomb scare that was done by a 14 or 15 year old Freshman. Rather than send everybody home, and thereby increase the chances of a recurrence, after everybody went back inside and assembled inside the High school’s gymnasium, we all had to sit on our respective buses for afew hours ,while the belting was searched, and then go back to classes.

    The 14 or 15 year old high school Freshman who’d perpetrated the bomb scare spent the better part of a year serving a term at Billerica House of Correction.

    Bomb scares aren’t fthe least bit cute, clever of funny, because they can result in the death of somebody. A person could also have an asthma attack, a stroke, or an epileptic seizure. These are not the least bit cute, clever, or funny.

    Here’s hoping that the perpetrator of this recent bomb scare that you had where you are gets arrested, tried for, and charged with this crime, and ends up behind bars for awhile.

    I’ll also add that had the 14 or 15 year old Freshman who perpetrated the bomb scare at our high school all those years ago been three or four years older (i. e. 18, rather than 14 or 15), he would’ve ended up serving a longer, harder time in an even tougher adult penitentiary, such as Cedar Junction, or Concord, perhaps.
