Published on Jan 31, 2013
Following brazen military drills in Miami and Houston, police in Illinois plan an active shooter scenario in a suburban Chicago school today.
Students will be in classrooms at the Cary-Grove High School when police fire blanks in the school hallway “in an effort to provide our teachers and students some familiarity with the sound of gunfire,” according to principal Jay Sargeant, CBS Chicago reported on Tuesday.
“From the school’s request, they want to let the students know what the sound of gunshot might be, should that occur in their school,” Cary Police Chief Steven Casstevens added.
According to the school, parents were informed of the drill via email. Parent Kassy Pinter told CBS Chicago she did not receive the email.
Many parents believe the “code red” drill is inappropriate and will frighten children. “If you need to run a drill, you run a drill,” parent Sharon Miller told a local radio station. “They run fire drills all the time, but they don’t run up and down the hallway with a flamethrower,” she said in response to the plan by police to fire blanks in the school hallway. http://www.infowars.com/gunfire-in-the-hallway-illinois-school-plans-code-red…
