Blank Rounds Fired “To Expose Students to Sound of Gunfire”

Parents of children attending Bethel Park High School in southeastern Pennsylvania have protested the school and local police department’s firing of blank rounds during an active shooter drill, allegedly without the parents’ express consent.

KDKA CBS Pittsburgh reports:

At Bethel Park High School on Thursday, an active shooter drill is scheduled to get underway during an extended third period class.

This drill will include the sound of gunfire, but blanks will be fired, not real bullets. School Police and Bethel Park Police will conduct the exercise.

Nanette Adams has a son who just this year enrolled in the High School. She and some other parents contacted KDKA-TV News saying they were concerned about the drill; more specifically, the fact that blanks were bring used.

“Students have been prepared; although, I have not been advised about what that preparation consists of,” Adams said. “My concern is for students who may have some sort of issue with anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, special needs students.”

The high school principal sent emails out to parents saying in part that the drill will include an alleged shooter in the building.

The police will be firing blanks to expose everyone to the sound of gunfire in the building.

In the email, he said the blanks will not be fired at anyone, however the sound may be heard throughout the school.

Some mental health experts are now asserting that such drills are unnecessarily traumatizing younger school-aged children who are unable to distinguish between a “drill” and a real event.

  1. The purpose of these “active shooter drills” is not to protect children, but to make police appear indispensable, to justify throwing more and more of our tax dollars their way. Children are the big losers, since not only are these drills a huge distraction from learning –even antithetical to it, as this psychologist says–but the limited funds available to schools should be spent on books, computers, and teachers, not these frivolous and frightening “drills.”

    How frivolous they really are was pointed up in the NPR article MHB recently republished, which exposed how schools and media alike have been grossly inflating the number of school shooting events in this country. There are programs in place whereby schools automatically get huge grants of money to “heal” after such events. Schools are lying to get the dough. We need to address this fraud, STOP glorifying police and military, and GET RID of the pigs feeding at this trough known as the “security industry.”

    1. Former U.S. Marine Ken O’Keefe from LAX, 2016.
      This is an excellent statement by Alison Maynard. Such explosions are desperately needed in Congress, centered right under the soap opera’s speaker’s podium to jolt a reminder into these brainwashed pigs that they are indeed violating the laws requiring them to register as foreign agents for Israel. These explosions should go off randomly all day long in Congress with no ear protection permitted. The above video of former U.S. Marine Ken O’keefe should be running on the screens all over Congress 24/7 to knock some sense into these brainwashed non representatives of us lowly citizens who have totally sold out their souls to Israel. Shame on them. They could do the same thing at every body scanner and search area in every airport where these pigs in Homeland Security gang rape the 4th Amendment 24/7 every day. Here is the text of it: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” Quoted from “US Constitution for Everyone” by Mort Gerberg, A Perigee Book, 1987, page 40. The “Patriot Act” is another obscenity by the whores in Congress as a result of the fake report on 9/11/01. Israel, not Muslims, did 9/11/01:

  2. Excellent point Alison and Winfield. And colleges everywhere are jumping on the security gravy train of state and federal money. At the small suburban Catholic college (Northern Virginia) I attend part-time. They even have a video for you to watch how to fight off the “active-shooter” if its the last resort. Below is a copy of the email flyer I receive this morning.

    Let the mind-rape of our youth continue….

    Office of Campus Safety
    & Emergency Management
    Tuesday, September 18, 2pm – 3pm
    Active Shooter DRILL
    in Caruthers Hall

    The Office of Campus Safety and Emergency Management will conduct an Active Shooter DRILL in Caruthers Hall on Tuesday, September 18, beginning at 2pm.

    Although this is only a drill, you are expected to participate if you are in Caruthers Hall. We will practice techniques that could keep you and others safe in the event of an active shooter at MU.

    A campus-wide MU Alert will be sent to announce the start of the drill. If you are not in Caruthers Hall, no action is required from you in response to this alert. Another campus-wide MU Alert will be sent to announce the completion of the drill. All participants will then gather in the Library Reinch Auditorium for a brief review.

    Thank you for your support of this important exercise.

    In case of a real active shooter emergency, you should:

    RUN – If you can safely evacuate the building, do so quickly. Alert others as you exit.

    HIDE – If you can’t evacuate, lock yourself in a room with no windows. Barricade the door. Remain silent.

    FIGHT – Fight only as a last resort if you are confronted with the shooter.

  3. The purpose of these drills is simply to reprogram children by use of ‘trauma therapy’. Children traumatized early on will set them up with an inate fear of guns, a willingness to embrace gun confiscation and an acceptance of overt police authority as the normal state of affairs and for their own protection. All these are the necessary tools for a totalitarian society.

  4. I urge all of you to view this film. Much of the information I had seen covered elsewhere. One of the biggies in this is the CDC’s leasing of farmland next to a railroad track that contained plastic coffins big enough to each hold several people. There were too many to count, the aerial drone footage is shocking. The special three story train cars spotted every where. The Wal-Marts closing all over the country and being gutted and fitted with high security. The UN’s presence. The Map of UN Agenda 21 that shows rural life prohibited in most of the country. The FEMA re-education centers built far and wide. All the executive orders that are blatantly unconstitutional. The house to house gun confiscations during Katrina. A huge UN combat unit stationed in Hagerstown Maryland. The Hunger Games predictive programming, the Purge movie, the murder of the Gray State Film Maker and his family. What happen to Houston and Puerto Rico after their weather engineered disasters.
