Morning Video: LAUSD Defends Decision To Close Schools When NYC Didn't

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

While LA schools closed yesterday, NYC schools did not. That's caused a certain amount of concern about how districts react to threats. NYPD's Bratton didn't help things much by calling the threat a hoax.

Schools here in San Francisco weren't targeted by the threat. A news radio report here in S.F. on the LAUSD school closure yesterday took a contemptuous tone toward LAUSD for closing the schools, interviewing just one person, a security expert who said the threat was an obvious hoax. A while after I heard that radio report, I logged onto Facebook, and my friends who are LAUSD parents (quite a few of them) were expressing gratitude to the district for erring on the side of caution. Something to ponder.
