I'm a little disturbed that police didn't lockdown the elementary school around the corner as this happened as kids were being dismissed, and shooter was on the loose. I live on the next block over & was on my way to get my child from school when the police cars raced up the block. Carmichael just isn't the safe place it used to be.

Thanks for your comments Yvonne. What school is that? Readers, do you agree with Yvonne that "Carmichael just isn't the safe place it used to be"?
