  1. While I am concerned about school safety, a guy on drugs, wandering on school grounds at 8pm, who caused no disturbance and left after getting directions seems like a complete non issue to me.

    We could have tanks and heavily armed security during the school day and this same thing could have happened.

  2. Is it against the law to be on school property when the building is closed?

  3. Tempest in a teapot….kids drink and smoke behind the school every weekend….

  4. People that’s why I buy a BB gun and shoot people right in the ass they leave

  5. Let’s pass a law…. we need a “Newark Resident Control” bill.
    Do It Fer Da Kidz.
