Think about the mentality of the kids first, maybe? Reply Andrew Ling says: February 28, 2019 at 9:02 am It’s more like jail then school Reply Secunda says: February 28, 2019 at 10:48 am So a shooter with an atomatic rifle is trying to open the door and get into your classroom, and you're trying to hold on for dear life along with 20 others. You have an abundant amount of metal desks, 1 entry way into the room, and an abundant amount of text book. What do you do? Don't block the door with desks obviously and instead make a pathetic barrier of desk that's low on the ground and hold textbooks that would supposedly protect/negate damage to your face. Cmon, I'm no expert but if I do end up inside the room with the doors being accidentally unlocked, the next thing I gonna do is spray n pray on all of your bodies.

You know there are some people in high school with way too much time on their hands. Simply hack the network and prevent any of the "safety measures" from working. Or even worse, use cause them to go off in the middle of the day.

Students at that school are very lucky. Reply Natelie Leclercq says: April 29, 2019 at 4:08 am i go to this school , it’s a lot safer than you think , so honestly you can’t judge if you don’t know and if you don’t go to the school . and it’s really not a waste of money either . Everything is bullet resistant and you won’t get hurt no matter what trust me I know . I GO TO THE SCHOOL !

Reply Beonkia M says: May 7, 2019 at 9:36 pm Shouldn’t all schools be safe?🤔 Reply Theherosamich • says: May 8, 2019 at 1:37 pm This is the most painfully stupid thing i have ever seen for so many reasons, holding a book in front of your face in the corner is somehow even more rediculous than duck and cover in the 50s Reply Sandra says: May 9, 2019 at 10:01 pm lol This never happens at private school we don’t even have cameras. Reply Tnn Dll says: May 13, 2019 at 2:24 am This is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. The Sheriff's Department is "only 10 miles away"? If it's so safe, then let's have the NFL implement that kind of security and see how long the players last. Reply Asian _TKD says: May 16, 2019 at 2:25 am lucky…… teachers tell us go hide under a desk, lock the door, and turn off the lights Reply 1945joshuaruiz says: May 23, 2019 at 2:15 pm Not really “safe “ . More like paranoid . People die everyday. You’re more likely to die from a shark attack than be in a school shooting just saying . Reply Joi Cook says: June 5, 2019 at 5:11 pm Okay, all of this isn’t too necessary. Cuz I’ll be the first one to throw hands at the intruder. Kick em in the nose. NOW WHAT Reply TheLongestUsername93 says: July 2, 2019 at 10:35 pm Why don't we just like, NOT treat children like they're worse than pond scum. Actually like, you know LISTEN to their worries and not dismiss them because they're young. Actually uh, I don't know, EDUCATE them about the world to feed their curiosity instead of assuming that they don't know diddly from squat. Maybe then they wouldn't have urges to shoot up schools.

IF ther were an active shooter with children still in the hall they would be affect by the smoke and the noise, and considering that they're children and not have military/police training will likely be even more paniced then they were before… Reply MrPrincessdlow says: October 9, 2019 at 7:34 am In Detroit schools they don't have the luxury of books to shield their lives in the event a deranged WB aka active shooter shows up. . . .
