In case of school shooter, use these rocks

A school district in Pennsylvania plans to arm students with buckets of rocks to deter possible school shooters. Kenneth Trump, who is the president of the National School and Safety Services based out of Cleveland, says the idea of having rocks in a classroom is illogical and irrational, and it could possibly cost lives.

Helsel added that his teachers, students, and staff have been given active shooter training, and they routinely hold drills for active shooter simulations. The school also has devices in its doors to help keep them secure, and trains its students on how to barricade doors to help prevent the need for the stones, Helsel said, according to the network.

Helsel said river stones are just the right size to "create or cause pain, which can distract."

"Every classroom has been equipped with a five-gallon bucket of river stone".

He stressed that doors have been re-enforced, making them hard to break through, and students have also been trained in "barricading the doors" to make breaching them even more hard.

However, Barak claims he delayed the operation so that the Israel Air Force could mount the best possible orchestrated attack. Israel determined that the alleged reactor was "totally disabled, and that the damage done was irreversible".

As schools around the nation grapple with how to best protect their students against a potential gunman, a school district in Pennsylvania has come up with one concrete solution. When Riley told us about the rocks - we thought she was kidding - because it sounds like a fucking joke, right?

And just in case teachers and students can't fend off an active shooter, the Superintendent says that an armed maintenance employee will be working at the school and trained on how to handle a shooter.

"At this point, we have to get creative, we have to protect our kids first and foremost", parent Dori Bornstein told WNEP-TV.

"It's absurd, arm the teachers", the parent said.

The plan was implemented late past year, prior to last month's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, which rekindled the debate in the U.S. about how to protect students from school shootings.
