    Burrito causes gun scare at Clovis school
    Loaded with meat and beans, a long burrito prompted police to lock down a Clovis junior high school.

    It wasn’t a gun that caused police to lock down Marshall Junior High School in Clovis. It was a burrito.

    Police locked the school down after a citizen saw a student walking into school with a long, skinny object wrapped in a white cloth. He thought it was a gun and called police.

    Officers searched for the student while the school was on lockdown. But the student came forward first, admitting he had what they were looking for – a two-and-a-half-foot-long burrito.

    The student had taken the burrito, wrapped in foil and a white cloth, to present in a culinary career class. It was loaded – with meat and beans.

    Police called the incident a good exercise for all of the officers who responded to the school.

    One observer joked that with the right combination of ingredients, the burrito could have been a deadly weapon.

    Sounds like an "assault burrito" to me.

    Better call SWAT, it's almost their lunch time.

    The real danger begins after it's eaten.

    Nobody "needs" a burrito that long...

    Just look at all the trouble it caused...

    A 2 and half foot long burrito is unnessecary when a couple of one footers would do just as well. That 'long range" burrito is a public nuisance. It is definatley dangerous to the public...

    There ought to be a law... :what:

    A two and a half foot long Burrito full of beans is a dangerous weapon.

    Was it a high-capacity burrito? Did it have a silencer?

    Anyone else thinking about the skit in "Monty Python"? :D

    You then shoot the perpetrator and then eat his burrito, thus completely disarming him! Like that? I learned that in Malaysia.

    What about pointed sticks? :D

    I see the humor in it all but I have to wonder about the panicked whacko who called it in as a gun! Then I have to wonder, what would have happened had the poice arrived and this kid lifted the burrito to show them. Scary thoughts.

    They ought to make the 911 caller eat it all, then lock him/her in a fairly small closet for about 3 or 4 hours so that he/she can contemplate the before and after possibilities, all the while enjoying the aromatic fragrances that are bound to bloom in the closet.

    It could have been worse, the LEO's could have seized the Burrito, for the children, and ate...I mean disposed of it.

    We need federal legislation banning horrible objects such as this immediately. What if a student attempts to walk into a school with a trombone case or other object that could conceal a weapon of mass destruction. How about no objects over 4 inches in length within 10 miles of any school or building containing a child. We could all sleep better at night if this legislation was passed.

    You may laugh, but I've experienced some Burritos that should have been regulated as Class II destructive devices. :uhoh:
