Police and SWAT locked down a Colorado high school, but it wasn’t for a clock this time. It was for a Halloween costume.
A young woman at Pueblo County High School dressed up for the holiday with a gas mask and trench coat. Clearly the costume is a monumental threat to the safety and security of the students.
A paranoid student reported the young woman to school officials and police was called. Then SWAT arrived with their large military vehicle to lock down the school.
After being interrogated by the police during an hour-long lockdown, the young lady was not charged with a crime. She is however suspended from school and waiting for further punishment.
Pueblo superintendent said this about the situation. “In these times, these kinds of things just aren’t funny, but I would like to say that our students reacted very well to this because they are the ones that originally reported it.”
“Incidents like this cannot be overlooked and must be taken serious,” Smith continued.
Incidents like this are happening all over America. Recently a young Muslim boy made a “suspicious” clock and got in trouble in school after a similar lockdown. The boy gained instant fame after being asked to visit the White House and Facebook.
The difference in this scenario is that the gas mask and trench coat Halloween costume is more dangerous than a potential bomb. As of right now, she has not been invited to Facebook, but is still hoping she can be invited to the set of Doomsday Preppers.
