I wonder how the school superintendant would like it if someone faked a vicious home invasion at his house in the middle of the night, just to test his readiness.
People could have been trampled in a stampede toward the exists, or suffered a heart attack (as has already been mentioned). If anyone had resisted, with a knife, pen, scissors, think how badly it could have turned out.

Another one?! Wasn't there a school that did this not too long ago? I thought for sure nobody would be stupid enough to pull this kind of stunt again after that.
I really hope this doesn't become a commonplace. It's only a matter of time until the "assailant" gets his brains beaten out by either student or teacher and dies. And if enough schools do this, the eventual real attack will be that much bloodier, with everybody thinking it's just another drill.

Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

Or better yet, swinging a heavy fire extinguisher on the perp AND CONNECTING... I wonder who would get sued, the brave soul with the "let's do it" attitude, the poor schlep with the orders to act as a perp, or the brainless people who concocted this incredibly stupid exercise.

What is someone had fought back? What if the "shooter" had been killed? Had I been a student there, I'd probably have been suspended if not expelled; as a teacher, I'd have probably have been fired. And the "shooter" would have not had a very nice night.
The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

Looks like suicide by teacher or student looking for a place to happen. The "actor" has to be dumber than a box of rocks or suicidal. What kind idiot would take a role like that?

It should state clearly if it was just teachers or teachers and students involved. IMO.

If somebody broke ranks and fought back, they would be fired for not following sheeple policy.

Yes there was another one....here is what I posted in that thread:

This is unacceptable, these young adults DIDN'T DO ANYTHING about the threat!
All of you parents need to beat (metaphorically), this fact into your kids!
This is a good example of what NOT to do, if you are in a classroom where this kind of intrusion occurs. Someone should have started throwing desks, chairs, books, laptops (or even bullets) at this BG. They didn't know he was a GG, to them he could well have been another Cho....But what did they do? They sat there like sheep to be slaughtered.
Have these young adults learned nothing about the real world? ...Apparently not...Until this mentality changes, BGs will always have an easy time finding targets for their twisted needs.
( I do want to add one other thought, CPHILIP touched on it in his post.....What if one person in that class had a firearm? Even given the fact that he was with campus security......What a strong message would have been sent to all the would-be BGs. They would be unsure if they could get away with it..... Now, with the way it turned out, a potential BG knows he will still be able to 'win'.....)

That "actor" with the gun/blanks was really lucky no one went "Jason Bourne" on him and beat him to death with a book or something!

absolutely moronic. i guarantee you in Vegas, some teacher somewhere is CCing. Yes they would be breaking the law, but I am sure that they believe the benefit of being able to defend themselves and their students outweights the risks of punishment for illegal ccing. I see it going down like this. the mild mannered teacher is supervising students during study hall in the library. an armed man bursts in and opens fire. the mild mannered teacher takes cover behind shelving and fires 2 rounds to the shooters thoracic cavity. the shooter goes down, not moving, lying on the floor. the teacher takes the bad guys weapon in case the shooters death is a ploy and clears it. he recognizes the round as a blank. just then the organizers of the drill walk in and say," Jesus, <teacher's name>, what have you done? . . . . . A stupid idea.
