As students from neighboring secondary schools walked out of class recently to protest immigration legislation, one Inglewood elementary school imposed a lockdown so severe that some students were barred from using the restroom. Instead, they used buckets placed in classroom corners or behind teachers' desks. Appalled by the school's action, Worthington Elementary School parents have complained to the school board and plan to attend another board meeting next week.

Members of the mostly South Asian mosque described the trio -- two African American Muslims and a Pakistani national -- as "friendly, devout" adherents and said that they had been unaware of any dangers the men might have posed.
