Immediately following a tragedy, you'll find people overreacting as they try to be vigilant and prevent the same thing from happening again. It makes sense that schools would be extra alert after 2012's horrific mass shootings. What doesn't make sense are the dumbass ways some schools have reacted. Or rather, overreacted. The ways are still dumbass, though.
For his outgoing voice mail message, 19-year-old Travis Clawson rapped the theme to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, a song that at no point makes reference to leaving a message. A receptionist at an optometrist's office called Travis to remind him of an upcoming appointment, but instead got his voice mail. Since anything recorded by a voice mail system has the sound quality of a melted cassette tape salvaged from a fire, the receptionist misheard the lyric "and all shooting some b-ball outside of the school" as the much more terrifying "shooting people outside of the school."
