Hundreds of S.B. parents suffered on March 2

March 2 was a gut-wrenching day in the history and psyche of South Brunswick Township. On that day South Brunswick High School was locked down for the first time due to the possibility of a gun being brought into the school. Many hundreds of families suffered for hours worrying about their child or loved one who studied or worked at the high school.

South Brunswick police deserve credit for fast and effective response to the problem. Plainsboro police, who assisted, should also be thanked. The young juvenile who caused this situation needs help and our prayers.

Today it is a fact of life that a situation like this could recur. I sincerely hope it does not happen again.
