What about the lockdown at SSHS? Wasn't that incident also reported to police?

it was a drill it did not have to be reported to the cops even though they were there along with ssfr

It wasn't exactly clearly communicated to all students that it was only a drill.

Either way, if the police were in attendance for this event at the school's request, it should have been in the record and noted as a "drill."

Or, am I mistaken to believe that 'THE RECORD' is an actual reflection of police activity in this community? If I am mistaken and 'THE RECORD' is for pure entertainment purposes only, a disclaimer for the column would be nice to see...

the record is not a good reflection of all the work police do in this community. I've called the cops many o times (work related) and its never made 'the record'. I don't know why, but they leave out all sorts of police calls.

gwendolyn & cheesehead:

I don't know about The Record comprehensively delineating police activity. I've always appreciated The Record for its entertainment value. With the retirements of Gary Larson & Bill Watterson, the comics sure as heck aren't worth reading...

I miss Calvin & Hobbes as well. I'm not sure how they decide what makes the record, but I too read it for entertainment purposes. some of that stuff you just can't make up.
