FALMOUTH, Maine Rigged elections. Vigilante observers. Angry voters. The claims, threats and passions surrounding the presidential race have led communities around the U.S. to move polling places out of schools or cancel classes on Election Day. The fear is that the ugly rhetoric of the campaign could escalate into confrontations and even violence in school hallways, endangering students. "If anybody can sit there and say they don't think this is a contentious election, then they aren't paying much attention," said Ed Tolan, police chief in this seaside community, which decided to call off classes on Election Day and put additional officers on duty Nov. 8.

Sharp thinking. I hate that there are people that can think so much more quickly than me :)
They call it Falmouth for a reason. What a bunch of Pussies.
“Ok kiddies. The lesson for today is to see how many of these ballots you can fill out before lunch break. Every one of you that fills in all of the (D)s gets an A and a pony.”
Just thinks about how nefarious teachers can be..
The riots will be AFTER the election by leftists / illegals who actually believed the fake polls.
If I was Sherlock Holmes, London would have been so overridden with crime, it would have looked like “Escape from New York” :)
Should Hillary lose, she won’t concede until every major city has been torched.
She’ll be the first to claim the election was rigged by the Russians and she’ll have Obama blow up the world if she has to.
That’ll make Vlad so happy.
I don’t know where Tolan got his info from but Falmouth Maine did not cancel classes because of fear of violence. They did it for parking and traffic.
Perfectly reasonable explanation for cancelling classes that day:
Field Trip! (To the polls.)
Frees up the buses for GOTV efforts. And frees up a classroom or two for a vote boiler room.
Those boxes of extra ballots have to come from somewhere!
Oh for Petes sake, if anyone is going to be violent it will be the paid SJWs of the Demoncrats. Conservatives will only get violent to protect themselves.
OMG!!!! The little snowflakes might feel a micro aggression coming on! I bet all these kids are not allowed to play tag at recess and get a participation award after everything they do. I am so over this crap!
And all of those empty houses while us old folks go vote.
Schools in my town have always been closed on election day
I think you’re right.
blah blah blah...
Diffuse the tension, like...
L and I were in a checkout line with a cute Mexican girl cashier... So right when the transaction was over I commented... Don't worry, President Trump won't deport you! Emphasis on you She lit up like a Christmas tree...
