    Grand Rapids Police to Teachers: You have to stay alive for 10 minutes....

    Grand Rapids Public School teachers are being trained before the start of the new school year about surviving active shooter situations, and police are telling them that they have to stay alive and keep their students alive for 10 minutes, using any means at their disposal.

    Any means except firearms, that is.

    And of course, we know that the 10 minute figure is a baseline. Depending on where the school is located, how many officers are available to respond to the call, how long it takes them to assemble to effect an entry, where the bad guy is located in a multi-story school building, etc., that time will go up significantly.

    WOOD TV is going to air the first part of their report on the exercise tonight at 6, part 2 at 11. There should be some video to view after that.

    God forbid we should ever let teachers actually defend themselves and their students.

    The approach teachers are encouraged to use is straight from the DHS active shooter training they released last year - barricade the doors as best you can and throw improvised weapons at the shooter. My question? Why use improvised weapons when real, effective weapons are readily available?

    During those 10 minutes, are they allowed to pray?

    And this is the decision of the school system? More of the asylum, formerly known as the USA and currently run by its inmates.

    All the security enhancements at public schools other than training and arming school staff is little more than window dressing.

    It's too bad that they haven't learned from the recent Georgia situation. The principal of that school is now asking for armed guards in the building. That would be a start.

    Of course not. Everyone knows prayer is not allowed in schools. Two wrongs do not make a right.
