We've been "updating" them for over 20 years. Cowards gonna cower.If they violated procedures, they should face whatever disciplinary action comes from that. If they followed procedures and the procedures were weak, then they should be updated.
LinkSince the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School, police have been instructed to go after an attacker as soon as possible, a change from the previous tactics of waiting until a tactical group, such as a SWAT team, could assemble.
After Columbine, and then again after the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012, “law enforcement aggressively began training to respond immediately to neutralize a shooter,” said Katherine Schweit, a retired senior FBI official who started the bureau’s active-shooter program.
“Under all circumstances, that is their first priority.”
Schweit cautioned that it was still early and that more information would probably emerge about the Uvalde shooting. But a decade of working on this issue, she said, has taught her that it’s pivotal for officials to stop the shooter “in whatever way that needs to happen.”
If you require meds, then no gun for you is how it should be. Too many cases of a crazy person killing someone after they thought they were better and stopped taking their meds.
Good thing we're protected and served by the Thin Yellow Line.“At that point, if they proceeded any further not knowing where the suspect was at, they could’ve been shot, they could’ve been killed, and that gunman would have had an opportunity to kill other people inside that school,”
It goes beyond just guns. The whole idea of leaving someone to their own recognizance with the promise they take their pills is ludicrous too. Not how it should be but how it is. The guy who severed the guy next to his head on a bus was 'cured with pills' but left to take his own pills which he didn't and we know what happened. No gun in that case, just a machete. Some doc sees the guy is doing better inside the institution, writes a script for some pills and moves them along. I think the killer is back out on day passes now because he has pills again.How it should be, but it's not. Moreover, you ask any of the pro-gun types about mental health and guns, they avoid the questions like you're the media.
"How To Trick Out Your AR-15 With The Latest Cool Gear"NRA conference starts in Texas today.
I wonder what the topics will be.
Certainly not protecting kids.
Normally I would describe a situation like this as a goat rodeo but I don’t think the term is strong enough so let’s just call it a cluster fuck as you’ve done. Holy Christ…. I cannot comprehend, policy are not, how anybody cannot step in and step up when children are in danger.
The mass acceptance of this colossal CLUSTERFUCK of a shitshow is just... disgusting and yet heartbreakingly unsurprising.
