AT HALL HIGH: LRPD checking threat.
that unspecified threats have prompted removal of students and staff from two high schools this morning — Little Rock Hall
— while buildings are searched.
An old fogey's tale: When I went to work for the Arkansas Gazette as a reporter in 1973, City Editor Bill Shelton had a standing rule that we did NOT report on bomb threats to schools or other public agencies. None ever proved valid. The theory was that publicizing the threats — evacuations and the like — only encouraged more malicious hoaxes. Same thing for false fire alarms. (Remember fire alarm boxes?)
Different world today.
