    Bolingbrook has always been in the news, from the Drew peterson case, the plane crash in the bank parking lot, the shooting on Malibu Street, the boy being drowned at the pond, and now this story, that town is going to be the new Chicago, in the future.

    Interesting that this is all you are writing about this situation. This same student has brought a knife to school in the past. This student was upset with his math grade and was threatening his teacher to change his grade. This student also thought that the BB gun was a real gun that he was threatening his teacher with. Thank God it wasn't. But even up close a BB gun could seriously injure a person. This was not a calm situation. My child goes to the school. Kids were screaming and running in the hallways to get to a safe place. What you also didn't mention is that the Principal found the student. He did not know that it was a BB gun. He talked the student into giving him the gun. He put his own life in danger. Yet the school board has pushed him to leave the school at the end of the year. Reporters DIG DEEPER there is so much corruption in our school district. That is what we need help with to expose.
