City Councilors Ed Flynn and Michael Flaherty want answers after they learned from a parent that a live .45 round was found in a restroom at the Condon K-8 School on D Street, just a few days after a "a piece of paper or literature was also found at the school earlier this week displaying Nazi swastikas."
The two councilors - Flynn represents and lives in South Boston, Flaherty is at large but lives in South Boston - say they are particularly alarmed because they say the school principal did not allow the police to have gun dogs search the school.
When school leadership fails to take potential incidents of violence and hate seriously, it creates an environment that is indifferent to violence and inappropriate behavior. All of our children deserve to be in a safe, stable, and welcoming learning environment at our Boston Public Schools.
The two are asking for "a complete and thorough investigation" into how the two items wound up in the school.
