Reasons for security alert at Brattleboro, Vt., schools still undisclosed

I understood the reaction, given the recent tragedy in Newtown, Conn., where a gunman killed 26 people at an elementary school, including 20 students, before turning the gun on himself. I could also understand the initial lack of information, given that officials were ensuring the safety of the area schools and students. However, as my reporters continued to do follow-ups on the “alert,” it became clear no further information would be made available, even as things returned to normal.
