PostSubject: A Fantastic Day in Scenic Goshen, Indiana   Thu Apr 30, 2009 6:40 pm

Goshen, Indiana. An city that is nothing short of an abandoned industrial wasteland. Its smack dab in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by farms and fields. Sometimes I wonder why people didn't bulldoze it and put a large parking lot on top of the remains. I guess it's probably because the people here are SO DAMN STUPID!

Yesterday, I was absent from school since I felt sick to my stomach, but I wish I would have went. Probably 2 hours or so after I got up, my stepfather came home from going to the grocery store for beer or something, and he told me that there were police vehicles parked outside of Walgreen's - A local drug store. He wondered what was going on, but I didn't think much of it. As the great Obi-Wan Kenobi once said, "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy (in Goshen Indiana)". Later, on the news, we learned that there was an attempted robbery at the drug store. That was pretty interesting, but not unusual. But, it got more interesting. My friend who attended school that day, told me that there was a bomb threat earlier. Somebody called in to the school, and informed them that there were 2 bombs placed in the school that will be detonated in 30 minutes. The students, of course were rushed out of the school and to the football stadium, where they were held. After about 30 minutes, the students were released and classes were dismissed for the remainder of the day. Apparently, the robbers called in the bomb threat as a diversion while they robbed the drug store. At first, I thought that was a good idea, until I thought about it further. In the report, it said that the people called from a payphone, which is right next to the drug store. They were unaware that the police had caller I.D. Their next mistake, targeting a drug store that is LESS THAN 2 BLOCKS FROM THE POLICE STATION. Apparently they didn't realize that the police have CARS. Their third mistake - trying to rob the store WITHOUT WEAPONS. They apparently handed over a note that demanded narcotics, but when the clerks refused, the man ran out the back door and fled. 4th mistake - their diversion was my High School, which was less than A 5 minute drive from the drug store. Wouldn't you think that they would make their diversion quite a bit further away than that? When all of the police showed up to the school, they didn't have very far to drive at all to apprehend the unarmed robbers. Needless to say, the robbers were apprehended shortly after.

That story is just one of the stupidest things I have heard in awhile....

There are some people that will just never cease to amaze me, say the cops had a god laugh at these guys lol, wouldn't want to be in your school amongst the panic of a bomb threat though, it's a good thing it was just a diversion and nobody was hurt.

True, but I kinda wish I would have went. Everyone was escorted outside, so we would have been safe anyway lol. I just think that whole day was just funny. Things like that can be scary, but it gets to a certain level of stupidity to where it then becomes funny

Columbine I assume? Or a different one? Sorry if I'm prying. I know a guy on another forum who either went there or lived near by I can't remember.
