Active shooter drills are meant to prepare students. But research finds ‘severe’ side effects. : Health


This is absolute insanity.

It starts off all calm sounding …

The exercises range from drills in which students and teachers go through the motions of turning the lights off and locking doors,

okay.. that seems prudent …

to high-intensity exercises that involve actors portraying gunmen and victims while the sound of gunshots plays

Wait, what? Why? How the hell is this supposed to be useful?? Human beings don’t need to witness this for pretend to learn how to witness it for real, and it’s not like anything they are “training” here is going to make a shit of a difference. Whose idea is this? What a country. “exceptional”
