    Default Grenade in school leads to mother's arrest

    STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) The mother of an 11-year-old Connecticut boy has been arrested after police say her son brought a grenade to school for a show and tell related to World War II lessons.

    Lisa Miguel of Stratford was charged with risk of injury to a minor, reckless endangerment and illegal possession of an explosive.

    Stratford Academy was placed on lockdown Friday. Students were sent to the back of the school until a bomb squad determined the grenade was a simulator used for training.

    The 44-year-old Miguel didn't immediately return a message Tuesday seeking comment. Police say she told them the grenade had been a gift from her father, a war veteran, who had told her it was a dud.

    State Police say simulator grenades can combust and cause injuries within a 20-foot radius.

    Wtf? Sometimes having parents is the same as not having parents. Unbelievable!

    Honestly, it seems that these school lockdowns are daily here in CT.

    Last week we had 2 10 -ear old girls making bomb threats to several schools in the same town.

    i just don't understand these parents. We can't send our kids to school with a snack with peanut products in it, how does a grenade sneak though? When my daughters have show and tell it tends to be a Minnie Mouse or most recently a Minion remote control car (very cool by the way). I've never thought to hand them a friggin weapon instead. lol I'm begging for DD to respond "yes we're that dumb Mike, how many times have i told you", but are people really that f-ing stupid?
