OMG and WTF?

From the article:

We know our children have lock-down drills. It’s a sad, unfortunate part of the world we live in. However Glen Ridge students had a lock-down drill supervised by Homeland Security!
On Thursday, March 6, a team comprised of ten officials from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, and the NJ Department of Education’s Safety and Security Task Forces visited Glen Ridge High School to conduct an unannounced school lock-down drill. With the exception of Glen Ridge Superintendent Dr. John Mucciolo and Chief of Police Sheila Byron-Lagattutta, no Glen Ridge Public School personnel received advanced notice of the exercise.

Conditioning...

So the younger generations get used to a constant Neo-Gestapo presence around all the time and in charge of everything.

But our foreign policy isn't motivating terrorists to attack us or anything.   So let's ignore that, and fight the battle for freedom on our hands and knees in our schools instead.   The policy is too important!  On your knees, plebs!

How often does the GOV run lightning strike drills?  Your chances are greater at being struck by one then any sort of terror attack.

I have a feeling that being a cop is going to get a lot more dangerous given people have limits.

This right here. The police have been militarized beyond reason. The grip is tightening slowly but steadily on the throat of the people...you are monitored and cataloged online, you are watched from the skies, you are taught to accept the police presence without question. Be a good consumer, don't try and make waves: follow these simple rules and you will live a happy life in the US of A.

Edit to add -- how to everything to go s*** so fast?! I remember the conspiracy theories years ago, some gained momentum, most didn't bear fruit. But my God America has fallen...it used to be the poster child for "freedom" - now it's a sad shadow of it's former self. I used to admire the patriotism so much but watching the way it was used to garner support for anti-American ideals has been heartbreaking...I hope there is a special place in Hell for the people that brought this house of cards down on us all.

As mad as it is, and as much of a WTF as it is, I can understand the thinking that went through the Principal's head.
Here in Oz, we have a schedule of drill practices. First term, everyone is told when the fire and lockdown drills will be - to the rough hour. In fact, we often give a couple of days warning so the younger kids aren't frightened and can practice the drill without the fear.
Second term, teachers are told when and kids are told in the morning it'll happen "today sometime".
Third term, only the teachers are told (and it's a "today sometime") and we're not to tell the kids unless we really have to (ie the kid doesn't cope well with routine changes).
Fourth term, only the Principal knows.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

But do your drills include armed officers pretending they are hunting terrorists  with your kids in the mix?  Probably not.  This is clearly for conditioning purposes.

I remember having drills as well, in a pre-9/11 world. It is very important that in the event of an intruder, everyone knows the drill - literally. But armed cops roaming the halls? C'mon...have crime rates dropped so dramatically that officers have nothing better to do than spend their day at a school?

Asides for the asinine "conditioning" accusations, what is the actual complaint here?  That real cops took part?  Instead of what, teachers running around with water guns, pretending they knew what they were doing and acting like cops don't act?

we so have coppers who walk around the school during drills, if they're free, in order to make sire it's secure.
