I caught this before my morning coffee.
I did a double take at the graphic.
We doing Jet Li acrobatics now?
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — On their day off, dozens of Metro Nashville Public School teachers trained to take down an active shooter if one ever darkened the doors of their schools.
This placebo training, a tactical sugar pill and nothing serious to be used when it comes to actually stop a deranged killer. How do we know? Police do not respond to shooting incidents with empty handed martial arts but with superior firepower.
It was hands-on training as one demonstration, Defend Systems, showed teachers how to stop someone from bleeding out if they were shot.
This I have no beef against. In fact that is something we have been supporting for ages here and pretty much everybody in the Gun Culture community.
Defend Systems is the same group that did active shooter training at The Covenant School a year before their shooting. Police believe it saved lives. Tracey Mendenhall, the director of training and operations, is passionate about teaching educators how to fight back.
