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.

Confirmed: AOC, Ilhan Omar & Rashida Tlaib Will Officially Endorse Bernie Sanders for President

Makes you wonder what cabinet positions they might’ve been promised…

Omar, Tlaib, and Ocasio-Cortez. Without question, three of the very [insert word here] people to become members of Congress in quite some time. The rookie lawmakers are the most prominent members of “The Squad” and constantly find themselves in trouble for saying and doing silly things, but you already knew that. In a surprise to literally no person on planet earth, all three Democrat Socialists will endorse Bernie Sanders for president. Not Warren. Not Biden. Not Booker or Buttigieg or Gabbard or whoever else. They’re going with their fellow Democrat Socialist. Might Democrats say they’re acting, I don’t know…sexist!? by choosing a man over a woman? Look out for it! Even though this announcement is likely to get plenty of airtime from far-left networks, it should do little to move the needle in Bernie’s favor – at least if it comes down to a general election battle between Sanders and Trump. Think about this, though…what cabinet positions were Tlaib, Omar, and AOC promised if Bernie wins? Scary thought, right? From Fox News: Fox News has learned that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., will appear with Sanders on Saturday in Queens, N.Y., at a “Bernie’s Back” rally designed to generate excitement for the senator’s campaign following his recent heart procedure. Rep. Ihan Omar, D-Minn., will also endorse the candidate, Fox News confirmed. New: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib will also endorse Sanders, according to source. AOC will, as @daveweigel and @WaPoSean first reported, will do the same on Saturday in NYC. https://twitter.com/GregJKrieg/status/1184303508188794880?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Focasio-cortez-omar-tlaib-reportedly-will-endorse-bernie-sanders As if everything they’ve said about Israel wasn’t bad enough, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib decided to take things a full step further. It’s pretty bad. And yet, nobody in the mainstream media will say a word – neither will any of their liberal colleagues. LOOK: Oof. Looks like both…

Pelosi Makes It Clear: Democrats Will Not Hold Vote On Impeachment Inquiry Into Trump

Game over?

It’s all over, folks. Democrats, once again, thought they had President Trump caught between a rock and a hard place. And yet, once again, Democrats didn’t do their homework before pulling the trigger. Go figure, huh? With all these absolutely phony, made-up “get Trump” tactics the left has pulled, you’d think they’d have scored on at least one attempt. But nope. They’re still swingin’ for the fences and striking out like they’re wearing blindfolds when they step up to the plate. On Tuesday evening, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) made it clear that her far-left party would not proceed with a vote on an impeachment inquiry. The reason, even though they won’t admit it, is because they have nothing to go on. Not a single thing. It’s just too bad the uninformed and the mainstream media kept goading liberals into thinking there was a chance. But no dice! CONFIRMED: Pelosi informs caucus there will NOT be a formal floor vote to launch the impeachment inquiry https://twitter.com/scottwongDC/status/1184240274417041408?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1184240274417041408&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjust-in-pelosi-says-no-impeachment-vote%2F Schiff says Republicans “have completely been represented” in these closed-door depositions. They have attended and ask questions. “There is full participation by the GOP” He says that he anticipates releasing transcripts https://twitter.com/scottwongDC/status/1184246948808802306 From Fox News: The move was seemingly a boon for moderate Democrats in swing districts, who have been reluctant to have a formal vote in favor of the proceedings as the 2020 elections approach — even as several of them have also sought to appease liberal constituents by vocally backing the ongoing inquiry. A congressional aide familiar with House Democrats’ discussions told Fox News that many House Democrats did not want to be seen as letting the White House dictate how the House conducted itself. Last week, the White House sent a fiery letter to House Democrats announcing that it would not cooperate…
