School Lockdowns

School lock downs are becoming everyday occurrences in the United States.
While some may be understandable, such as the case of school shootings in Indiana, others beg for a reasonable explanation.

A major road was closed for nearly four hours, causing delays, and schools nearby were locked down.

Police pursued a man they believed was the suspect, chasing him by car before a confrontation in which he was shot. As police arrested him, they determined he was not linked to the robbery.

Children are not allowed to leave. Parents are prevented from picking up THEIR OWN children.
I really have to believe it is an attempt to train children to blindly obey police, so as to further the Police State agenda. When these young people reach adulthood, not one shoot will need to be fired to take the last shred of the Constitution away form citizens.

In the case of this story, at least seven school were locked down after a shooting at a local bank in Connecticut. That's an awfully big area to lock down.

How in the world did we ever survive without locking down neighborhoods and schools?
How can the Constitution and this country survive if this kind of police action continues?

The genius who decided the "lockdown" was the best course of action should be drug out into the street and shot.

What's harder to hit, a running/moving target or some kid cowering in the corner of a room? Maybe if schools weren't "gun-free" zones an attacker would think twice about kicking the door of a room of people where potentially all and at least some individuals would be armed. As it is there is nothing in that "locked down" room but kids and even adult squatting under pressboard desks with their hands over their heads as if all ready to be killed.

A complete lockdown by design is merely an attempt at controlling collateral damage. It guarantees that (hopefully) the only victims will those unfortunate enough to get locked in the room or hall with the shooter. That after the shooter takes his sweet time doing whatever he pleases to the victims in that room or hallway he'll be left locked in there with a bunch of corpses left to either kill himself or be captured by police while the students/faculty locked in other areas of the building are left unharmed. This wouldn't be such a bad idea if schools weren't "gun-free" zones and somebody locked in that room could actually meet force with force rather than sit and "take one for the team" as it were.

Lockdowns are evil and my kids will be taught to ignore them at all costs. Ideally they will never see the inside of a public school or any private school that has policies like "lockdowns" or moronic "gun-free" status.

Ouch, kind of a bit harsh, don't ya think?

Maybe not shot as much as questioned/challenged.

What I think the problem is here, is that this mentality of 'control control control the public' is getting a little out of hand. I think everyone would be much better off if they realized that they don't have to 'maintain power and control' over everyone to 'protect them'.

It's just harsh enough. The founder of the "lockdown" is like the engineer behind the Taconic Parkway. That guys terrible design killed and continues to kill quite a few people. I heard he eventually committed suicide and the state of NY has to bear the cost of fixing that death trap of a road.

Lockdowns are the same thing.
