Default A Nation Of Lockdowns

The growing trend to lockdown schools has me concerned.

Type "lockdown" into Google News, and you get;

Two people have been arrested and a high school was on lock down for two hours.

Around 10:30 a.m. a student was seen with a gun at North Monterey Count High School and the school was placed on lock down.

A search of the school reveled a sophomore to be in possession of an air gun that looked like a real gun.

Last Friday, police were called to the high school on a report of a threat. The school was briefly locked down and a former student was arrested at his home.

Lebanon police said they now believe no threat was made against the students.

Those are just a few examples. There are hundreds more each week.

I believe it's a defacto Martial Law, that could be summed up in one word.
