“The Code Red drill is insane,” said Luz Sandoval, Rodriguez’s mother.
His mother worries about the emotional toll these drills have taken on him and his friends. They’ve taken part in five this school year already.

I am not a parent, but I understand the need for parents to shield kids from bad stuff. But one thing is covering their eyes when they are toddlers and you are driving by a multiple car accident with bodies on the ground. But to deny them preparation and training on what to do for when bad things happen because it may hurt their feelings, it is not only stupid and insane but grossly irresponsible. As a parent, you are the mental equivalent of a vaxxer.

We have now a full generation of people who not only do not know basic First Aid, but won’t even call 911 because that would mean interrupt the video they are taking to upload later on YouTube or WorldStar or once and tragically again, do not want to be involved.

And there is also the gnawing suspicious that the opposition to drills have nothing to do with keeping Junior’s psyche intact but more a political maneuver since you don’t hear the same complains about fire drills an other safety preparations.

  1. So, liberals don’t want teachers to be allowed to be armed to defend their kids, don’t want police in schools to defend their kids, and now don’t want the kids prepared when they are left defenseless. Got it.

    These people are sick and vile.

  2. One thing I will say is I remember having lock downs in high school. some were drills and some were real but we never knew until after the fact. What that meant was while I was sitting under my desk looking out the window of my ground floor classroom thinking boy it would be easy to to shoot the shit out of us from OUTSIDE I had no idea if I actually needed to be ready to fight or sit on my ass for 10 minutes and wait for the drill to be over.

    Communicating the situation is crucial

    This x 1000!

  4. How they forget the old Duck and Cover drills. This was a real thing here in Miami during the Cuban Missle Crisis.
