Teachers Shot by Police with Air Pistols During Shooter Drill Speak Out

The Sheriff’s Department stood by their decision, however, essentially saying that the teachers were shot with the air pistols because they didn’t act quickly enough, like a dog being smacked with a newspaper.

The idea that we, as Americans, must participate in “active shooter” drills is spooky enough, but one law enforcement agency is taking things too far…and teachers are speaking out.

The horror and confusion of an active shooter situation is unfathomable for many of us.  Suddenly, at work or school or the subway, the deafening report of gunfire would be instantaneously confusing and oppressive.  Our fight or flight instincts would kick in, sending us to the floor with the possibility of altered auditory senses.  From there, the terror truly begins as we play out any number of scenarios in our heads.

These instances are terrifying and harrowing in ways that only those who have lived through them can understand.

Active shooter drills, on the other hand, are meant to be learning experiences.  Sure, some urgency is needed to provide us the opportunity necessary to develop the muscle memory desired, but do we really have to shoot teachers with pellet guns in order to get the point across?

That’s what one group of educators is pondering today.

An Indiana teachers union is demanding change to active shooter drill protocols after teachers at an elementary school reported that they had been injured when they were shot by Airsoft guns during a recent exercise.

“During active shooter drill, four teachers at a time were taken into a room, told to crouch down and were shot execution style with some sort of projectiles — resulting in injuries to the extent that welts appeared, and blood was drawn,” a statement from the Indiana State Teachers Association on Wednesday said.

Association members said they were injured during the drill at Monticello’s Meadowlawn Elementary School, according to the statement.

The drill was conducted by the White County Sheriff’s Department, which defended the methods it used. White County Sheriff Bill Brooks said participation was voluntary, and teachers were shown beforehand what the drill would entail.

The Sheriff’s Department stood by their decision, however, essentially saying that the teachers were shot with the air pistols because they didn’t act quickly enough, like a dog being smacked with a newspaper.

Of course, an armed teacher would have had no issue dispelling their attackers, real or imaginary.

Watch: 2020 Democrat Joe Biden Thinks COVID-19 Is Called the ‘Luhan’ Virus

It’s Wuhan, Joe. Wu-han.

More often than not, 2020 liberal frontrunner Joe Biden doesn’t know what he’s saying. If he does, he’s not doing a great job of communicating his thoughts with the American people. You’d think his campaign would keep him out of the spotlight, considering he has his party’s nomination all but secured. But nope. Joe is still doing interviews and saying silly things that prove he has no business within 500 feet of the White House. WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1243686891368722437?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1243686891368722437&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F03%2Fwhat-is-wrong-with-old-joe-biden-refers-to-wuhan-coronavirus-as-luhan-virus-video%2F From Washington Examiner: Joe Biden’s campaign said the candidate has yet to take the coronavirus test because he is unaware of any contact with the disease. “Vice President Biden has no fever, no cough, no shortness of breath or other symptoms consistent with coronavirus,” the campaign said in a Friday statement. “And the campaign has not been informed of or become aware of any relevant contact with an individual who has tested positive.” Joe isn’t in favor of a travel ban, apparently. From Breitbart: Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) is refusing to listen to the advice of the nation’s leading medical experts, continuing his opposition to travel bans in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus in the United States. President Donald Trump’s administration has implemented travel bans on China, Iran, and most of Europe to stop the outbreak of the coronavirus in the U.S. Leading medical experts said this week that 30 states now have coronavirus cases due to international travel with Europe, from where 70 percent of the world’s new cases are now originating.

Michael Rapaport will never win an award for being politically brilliant. Accordingly, the actor isn’t likely to be named the most handsome man on earth, either. Once again, Rapaport has decided to show the nation that he’s not only ugly on the outside, but on the inside, too. Check this out, via The Blaze: Far-left actor Michael Rapaport — who earlier this week called first lady Melania Trump a “dumb animal” — dropped a payload of F-bombs against President Donald Trump and most of his offspring Wednesday, including his teen son Barron, and wanted to see them all exposed to the coronavirus.
