But the simulation wasn’t meant to train educators on how to attack or defeat a school shooter, Jefferson County Chief Deputy Randy Christian told TIME.
“They were allowed to take on the role of law enforcement so they could understand the need to relay accurate and timely information to first responders,” Christian said.
Which they likely won’t be able to do because they are still unarmed victims waiting to be slaughtered by shooters, or already dead in the attack.
All of this is CYA Kabuki designed to minimize as much as possible the financial fallout from massive lawsuits aimed at school districts. “We did everything we could possibly do.”
Yes, sad, pathetic, but true.
