Let's play a "what if" game.
What if one of those folks were a teacher in New Jersey?
A group of teachers in New Jersey were meeting in a school library when suddenly a man with a gun bursts in and starts shooting! Turns out, it's all a drill and the gun doesn't have any bullets, just blanks, but the teachers don't know that!An unannounced active shooter drill, and the active shooter was firing blanks? They ran the drill to see how the teachers would react, to make sure they "got under the desks"?
A teacher says "he opened the door. He stood there. He yelled some profanities threw some papers and fired a gun!"
The PA system kept repeating that the Phillipsburg, New Jersey Early Learning Center was in lockdown and the 50 teachers meeting in the library tried to talk cover under the kid-sized tables.
Teacher Arlene Levine says "people are crying! The girl next to me is trembling and shaking! You heard people crying! You heard other people praying! It was pretty dramatic!"
For those teachers the trauma that caused some to dial 911 was real the gunman as it turns out was not.
What a load of crap. Whoever thought up this drill should be fired. Whoever gave the final okay for this drill should be fired. The guy playing the active shooter, well he is lucky to still be alive and he also should be fired.
