A North Idaho College student is no longer allowed on campus after, according to police, Patrick Budig (pictured) made a veiled threat to his counselor, referring to Columbine in his comments. Budig, 33, is being sought by both Coeur d'Alene Police as well as police in Spokane where he lives. The college has since been working closely with police the last few days to keep tabs of the situation and, so far, there hasn't been an imminent danger to the campus and no need to let students know what was going on right away. While classes are going on as usual, some students expressed concerned about the police officers around the NIC campus. “We had a right to know. This campus should have been shut down,” student Amanda Razzaia said/Anusha Roy, KXLY. More here.
Question: Was the North Idaho College response in this situation appropriate?
