    I’m watching this series called undercover high and just saw an episode where the school does a lockdown drill several times a year mandated by the state. It’s a drill to turn off the lights and hide from a shooter, the teacher is to secure the classroom door and the students are instructed to hide behind their desks and be very quiet, not to huddle up together and spread out. The principal swept the campus, checked doors then called an all clear. I think that if there was a shooter from school that he would participate in these drills before committing the act.

    First I’ve ever heard of this, I think they’re in Illinois, is this happening in your state and to your kids?

    My childhood was so boring as all we had to look forward to were firedrills to get out of class once in a while.

    If my kid came home with a story of this, he'd be in a different school by the end of the week. This is training professional victims.

    Having worked for several public school districts, I can tell you that lock down procedures are as normal as fire drills.

    If a school has a security threat, a student fight, a dangerous person walks by the school, a bank is robbed downtown, etc. lock down is done until the threat has passed.

    If you want to enter a public school during school hours, you have to use the main entrance and visitors are screened through the front office.

    Its 2018 and this is what is going on.

    One has to wonder what people are thinking. Maybe it's in the food additives.

    I remember 'duck and cover', also hot summer afternoons before air conditioning, plus freezing mornings before the heat came up.

    One last thing. We used to bring our .22's to school so we could go squirrel hunting on the way home. Truly surprised so many of us made to this grand old age.

    Active shooter drills have been practiced in how many schools that have had deadly shootings?

    Hmmmm.

    Something stinks.

    I wouldn't judge any of them because of a 'goofy hat'. I guarantee each and every one of them would lay down their lives for those children.

    "The name of the small cap male Jews wear is called a Kipa (dome or covering) or Yarmulke. This head covering was meant to signify recognition that God is present above oneself." -- Signal

    So ... there's that.
