    That's the kind of stupidity you only get living so close to the border of Texas.

    At least the kid wasn't carrying in the lethal version of the burrito.

    A 30-inch bean burrito, beer, and a lighter would make the kid as lethal as a redneck at a chili competition.

    In other news: President Bush has announced a full scale invasion of Taco Bell to liberate their patrons of gas.

    Come on guys, I wouldn't be so flippant about something like this. I think it's a good thing schools are being overly cautious, especially in light of that kid killing 7 students and his grandparents in Minnesota earlier this year. You never know what some kid will do anymore, and it's better to be safe than sorry. In other news, I'm going to be eating a burrito for dinner tonight. :)

    Why wrap it in a t-shirt? Was the foil not sufficient?

    That just made it look even more suspicious because you couldn't tell the shape as well.

    Something also doesn't add up..
    It says the students were called into the auditorium, and that is when the student with the burrito realized they were talking about his burrito? Then he goes to the office to "turn himself in"?

    So, someone sees this kid with a suspicious package, and they then have no clue where he was in the school?

    i'm sure that a kid looking to do the next school shooting probably wouldn't carry a gun wrapped in tin foil and a t-shirt ... i would expect that he would try and hide it a little better :rolleyes:

    It's possible to take school security too far--and the REAL issue is one of parenting combined with taking mental health seriously in America.

    But I don't think this was overreacting.

    * If you went to maximum alert every time a kid carried a wrapped 30" long narrow object into a school, how many people would you inconvenience? Very few. Lots of objects are 30" long, but few have any need to be brought into school unannounced by a kid--much less wrapped in a shirt. It's just not the kind of thing that comes up often enough to make the reaction a problem.

    * That is a REALLY BIG BURRITO. I think if it was my call, I might have put police on the rooftops EVEN if I knew it WAS a burrito. We just don't know what a burrito of that size is capable of. It's uncharted territory.

    I think it was great of the kid to bring enough to share, though. Not his fault, just a big misunderstanding. It sounds pretty tasty, in fact.

    ....and if it did turn out to be a pipebomb and the chief of police said "We were informed it was giant-burrito day at the local taco shop" we would all call for his/her head on a platter.
