Lockdown High: Conditioning Students to Sacrifice Libert for Safety

It was Friday the 13th, and Skylar Walters thought he was going to die.
The 16-year-old inmate of Orangeville Jr.-Sr. High in Illinois was in gym class when a deranged-looking man barged into the school and began firing what appeared to be a handgun at several of the other students.
“I started praying to God and saying my last words,” Skylar later recalled.“I was scared. I didn’t know what to do.”
As the intruder fired his gun, he called out the name of a particular student; the youngster quite sensibly fled the building. Other kids “were just running everywhere and crying and hiding,” Skylar recounted. Some of the panicking schoolkids probably attempted to call or text their parents to describe the horror unfolding in front of them. They didn’t know that each of the parents had been instructed not to answer if his child issued a desperate plea for help.
That last sadistic touch is what distinguished the May 13 “active shooter drill” in Orangeville from countless otherperformances of its kind staged in schools across the Soyuz by the Police State Play Actors’ Guild. Most of the time, the kids for whose supposed benefit those drills are choreographed — and the parents responsible for their care, education, and upbringing — are let in on the joke.

Last October 10, for example, a mob of “between 80 and 100 officials” from law enforcement agencies staged a little Garrison State melodrama in New York’s William H. Barton Intermediate School. As described in the Glens Falls Post-Star:
“Fire alarms sounded at 9:31 a.m., drawing closed doors. Three Warren County sheriff’s officers and two state troopers conducted the first search, where they encountered students in a hallway and instructed them to sit down. They reached a second floor on a north wing of the school and found several bodies laying across the hallway. Police searched the classrooms, bathrooms and even an elevator, pressing their backs against walls before entering rooms and calling out `clear.’ A cafeteria was secured as a transfer point for victims with casualties, and a triage site for patient evaluation was at a nearby school.”
In that exercise, students — some of them in grade school — were recruited to play “victims.” One of them was the third-grade daughter of Heather Holl, who was herself cast as a “victim” in the third trimester of pregnancy. Another bit player, Heather’s son Alexander,“played the role of a gunshot victim” with an entry wound in his chest and a large exit wound in the back.

These "Active Shooter" drills are going on across The United States and may soon find their way into the Seymour school district. I do not support the traumatizing of any children seeking an education.

Schools are a safe place to learn not because of the actions of security and police but by the actions and powers of the teachers. That is the way it was intended. Kids need to feel that learning centers are safe and holding lockdown drills only erases those feelings of safety and teaches children that there is no "real" element of control.

Any parent who would allow or support this type of activity should reconsider and seek advice for elders who have experienced cold-war drills which although were held on a larger scale were not as traumatic as the Active Shooter drills.

On a note. Parents should teach their children how to react to life threatening situations. I teach my children how to safely exit a dangerous situation and retreat to a safe area. Teaching kids to huddle in a coatroom during a school shooting makes them an easy target. Locking kids into the school theater during a bomb threat or terrorist attack is is just the same. Easily found archives of these exact real life situations have proven to have grave consequences.

I would much rather entrust a responsible, pro 2nd Amendment teacher or principal to
be armed.
