At 2:14, “Mom” says, “I believe they had just earlier done after the break done some drills on this exact kind of situation which is I think why the teachers and students knew what to do in this instance.”
Of course the mainstream media doesn’t care about the truth, which is why The Wall Street Journal ran this article today on how massacres like the 17 reported dead at MSD High can be mitigated with active shooter drills:
Schools Need Active-Shooter Drills
Most deaths occur during the first five minutes. Preparing teachers and students would save lives.
Hardly any American schools hold active-shooter drills, but almost all of them hold regular fire drills. It’s been 50 years since fire was a real threat to safety in America’s schools. It’s time to rethink those priorities.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation defines an active shooter as a person “actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.” Because schools don’t rehearse their responses to these situations, students and teachers are typically unsure what to do during incidents such as Wednesday’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. Most often, school districts forgo active-shooter drills because they don’t want to scare their students….
[W]e should do everything possible to prepare our children and their teachers to protect themselves. Florida’s shooting underscores the need for immediate action…
Through regular active-shooter drills, schools can equip their students with the skills to react quickly and safely to frightening situations. It might frighten them at first, but they’ll get used to it, just like they’re used to fire drills.
There are many agenda items being served by this incident. The overall process of terrifying the population into giving up basic rights is called the Strategy of Tension. What could contribute more to tension than terrifying the children on a regular basis? If the agenda were really to protect the children, wouldn’t policy advocates reflect on the fact that Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School had just had such a drill that was on-point, yet 17 are reported dead and many more wounded?
Update (h/t Franny): “We just had all this training just three weeks ago”
