Shooter terrorizes campus during mock drill
Wednesday morning was a quiet one on the campus of West Kentucky Community and Technical College. But shortly after 10 a.m., the silence was shattered by gunshots.
Student Jackson Ervin was an eyewitness.
"The first two rounds were louder than the other ones and it scared me."
That is exactly the reaction Paducah Police Captain Brandon Barnhill was looking for. This was not an isolated incident. It was a mock drill, set up two months in advance at the request of the college. - (Source)
Fake Robbery Prompts Real Lawsuit
A New Jersey pharmacy technician who says she was traumatized when a masked gunman burst into her store demanding OxyContin is suing her employers for arranging the mock holdup.
Babette Perry says in a lawsuit that she was not told in advance of the training drill in December 2007 at the Hampton Behavioral Health Center.
She says she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder after the gunman entered the store, claiming he had taken another worker hostage. She says she tried to call for help, but the phone wasn't working.
She later found out the gun was a fake, and the gunman worked for the company. - (Source)

Homeland Traitors Run Unannounced Marshal Law Drills in Denver
The city of Denver, Colorado was recently invaded by a large number of military helicopters without any sort of warning given to the general public.
They are selling this exercise as an anti-terror drill, but in reality it has nothing to do with stopping terrorism. The terror war has been proven to be a fraud time and time again so it certainly isn’t about fighting the terrorists. As painful as it is to say, the true purpose of the federal government flying military helicopters around Denver without any sort of notification to the public is part of a plan to socially engineer people to the reality of a militarized police state. - (Source)
