Bullet Found on Kings Park School Bus

According to an email sent to parents Monday night, bullet appears to be from World War II.

A bullet was found on a Kings Park school bus on Monday morning, according to an email blast sent from the Kings Park School District to parents on Monday evening.

The bullet, according to the email, was four inches long, and appears to have been manufactured before World War II. The bullet is now in the possession of police who were notified by the district.

The district is asking that anyone who may have information regarding the found bullet to contact the principal of their child's school.

Below is the email that was sent to parents.

Good evening.
I want to inform you of a safety issue we are addressing today.  A bullet was found on one of our buses this morning. The bullet is about 4 inches long and appears to have been manufactured before World War II for a German rifle. As a precaution we talked with students who ride that bus and searched their lockers and back packs. Nothing else was found.  The police were called and have the bullet in their possession. If you have any information that could help us resolve how this bullet ended up on one of our buses, please contact me or the principal of your child’s school.
Thank you for your assistance.

"Illegal search and seizure ??? You must be kidding me. After all that has happened I wouldnt care if you strip searched those kids. I am more concerned with the right that my children have to go to school in a safe environment and with the right that I have as a parent to know that when I put my children on that bus that they will come home to me at the end of the day....." The average German citizen said the same thing during the rise of Hitler and the Nazi Party.

@ Kerry Smith, The fact that you wrote "those kids" and not "my kids", makes people believe you mean't the kids involved in this article, and you were in fact, NOT "speaking for yourself". It's funny how it is always those who avoided getting searched by others, their whole life, who say "I got no problem with (cops)(the school)(airport security) searching these people. I've got nothing to hide!" *sarcasm* It's so great having some stranger that you don't know from a hole in the wall, standing in your personal space, running their grubby fingers through your pockets, and down your pants and around your private areas, sifting (illegally) through your private property trying to instigate a problem with you, so they can simply, fill a quota. It's such a rejuvenating, and life affirming experience, it comes second only to being raped! *End Sarcasm*

Are our schools supposed to be run like Prisons? If yes, why? If no, then you are not doing a good job running them!

I'm a little late to the party here but I just came across this discussion. Are our schools supposed to be run like prisons? How about "is our country supposed to be run like a prison"? Our Constitution explicitly prohibits searches without reasonable cause. Random searches are unConstitutional, period, and as a parent I would be very upset if my child were subjected to one. Are all you "liberty for safety" folks comfortable with the idea of the TSA separating your eight year old from you at an airport and patting him or her down? Is it possible that you're complicit in conditioning your children to accept regular and random intrusions on their rights? Better think hard about this, folks, before they start knocking at your door to make sure everyone's safe.
