    MWAG on Campus? No, It's a Cell Phone

    Overreaction?

    It was a busy day for police agencies at the Cal State U Long Beach campus yesterday. First, there was a multi-agency active shooter drill. The short video of "victim" participants is a study in method acting or maybe hamming it up or worse.

    Later, that same day, police get MWAG call for the same location. Watch as contractors fall behind schedule while submitting to police commands to show their hands and approach.

    Besides, the fact that GFZ's don't protect the lives of honest citizens from active shooters and never will, is there a better way? Can't a couple of units start investigating before a half-dozen officers in helmets arrest everybody on site?

    Hey, it's California. Watch for the ban on high capacity cell phone plans next. As far as the active shooter drill, I think it would have been a nice twist to have a student, unbeknownst to anyone else involved, with a concealed blue gun take out the shooter before there was ever a mess to clean up.

    Oh, and I just love how they call a drill to come and clean up a mass shooting, a PREcaution. PRE has nothing to do with it.

    Soon in California, all clothing will be banned and all bags will have to be made of clear plastic that will allow visibility of all contents. Just to be safe you know.

    Heh...be careful what you joke about... Check out the new NFL stadium bag policy.
    2013 Stadium Bag Policy
    To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite fan entry into stadiums, NFL teams will implement an NFL policy this year that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into stadiums.

    The NFL Committee on Stadium Security in May unanimously recommended the implementation of this measure that will enhance public safety and make it easier for fans to gain access to all stadiums.

    The NFL strongly encourages fans to not bring any type of bags, but outlined today what is permissible. Beginning with preseason games, fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container at stadium plaza areas, stadium gates, or when approaching queue lines of fans awaiting entry into the stadium.
    • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12.” (Official NFL team logo clear plastic tote bags will be available through club merchandise outlets or at nflshop.com/allclear), or
    • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
    • Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bags.
    • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate designated for this purpose.
    I'm just waiting for someone to roll up and say "Here... Here's my colostomy bag. Go ahead and open and inspect it..."
    At what point do this dimwits realize they help the terrorists win...
    "My God David, We're a Civilized society."

    "Sure, As long as the machines are workin' and you can call 911. But you take those things away, you throw people in the dark, and you scare the crap out of them; no more rules...You'll see how primitive they can get."

    Couldn't a colostomy bag's contents be considered a biological weapon?

    Clarification, "The report of an armed suspect came from a campus Twitter page, saying ``An ARMED SUBJECT is in the area of Palo Verde Avenue and parking Lot 9. Evacuate the area if able, seek shelter if you are unable to evacuate,’’ according to police spokesman Sgt. David Marander."
    Well, I don't know. I guess the "caller" is not identifiable? Still, I think that cuffing the contractor and ordering the others to approach is
