For the children

In CT, school tells students there’s a threatening intruder on the loose and locks the school down. While the school is locked down, the school has the police bring in the drug dogs.

    Teaching the kids not to trust authority. Didn’t anyone there ever read the story about the kid who cried wolf too many times?

    Stuff like this begs for a synthetic – and completely legal – smell-substitute for marijuana.

    And, with the classroom doors locked during the festivities, it would seem the best place for one’s stash would be in the classroom. Taped underneath the bottom drawer of a teacher’s desk, perhaps….

    Drills are done so that people can have some practice on how to handle a certain problem. Under this fools idea, using a “Loose Shooter Drill” to search for Drugs is as Smart as Practicing for a Tsunami in Boise. What a waste of Training Time.

    It says, “we are providing a safe, secure, nurturing environment.” No you aren’t — you’re placing several hundred kids at very real risk by running around with unholstered firearms*, you’re also training them to walk into the ovens willingly.

    Stay. The. Hell. Away. From. My. Kids.

    *Yes, I know there are training weapons shown in the photos. Doesn’t matter. If the cops want to go play guns, then go do it away from the citizenry.

    You know, my high school would just keep us in our classrooms while they did drug searches, and they would say they were drug searches. One week they did three.

    This wasn’t some urban gang school, either, this was Greenwood High School in Bowling Green, KY, in 1998. A friend of mine got in serious trouble when they zeroed in on his dad’s car that he had driven that day. There was, no joke, a 50lb bag of dog food in the back. Also a blow gun, which they called a weapon.

    In other news, haven’t they determined that locking yourself in a classroom is worse than trying to leave the building? “OK, everyone get in a small room with no exit. Now, everyone group together in a corner to make a better target.”

    When I was in the Navy, our quarters were situated right next to base security. So when ever they wanted to “run” the dogs we got kicked out for most of the day from our quarters.

    The navy was nice enough to supply our quarters with a small galley, they also supplied things like condiments and several cupboards with these huge plastic jugs full of every spice imaginable.

    Needless to say, when push came to shove, a whole lot of spices were salted thru the hallways and rooms. The next “practice” was a total bust. The rest of my tenure there, they never ran the dogs in our building again.

    Who’s implying that drug enforcement officers aren’t dangerous intruders?

    Last week at my son’s high school an empty pistol case (like an MTM hard plastic case, since they said it had foam inside) was found between the parking lot and the auditorium. This initiated PSH mode and lockdown and searches — of backpacks and lockers, but not waistbands. No gun found. Many kids in trouble for things like snuff and midol. [This is my disgusted face.]

    Good grief, I own a bunch of “pistol cases” that I use for wargaming miniatures storage. I’ve never even thought about putting firearms in them.

    Dang, when I read the headline I thought of my high school (ranked 154th out of 156 high schools in the state; worse that the prison school).

    My first week there. I was sitting in math class when the intercom announced a security threat and initiated lockdown. Suddenly, six different kids ran to the window and threw stuff out. After class, I looked out the window and saw several ziplock bags, about a dozen blunts, and 2 knives.

    Good times!
