Houston Office Workers - Watch Out !


12160.info

After last week's shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., the city of
Houston has released a how-to video on surviving a shooter event.
The video was created with funds from the Homeland Security Department.

Entitled "Run, Hide, Fight," the video depicts a fictional shooting incident at an
office building.
"It may feel like just another day at the office, but occasionally life feels more
like an action movie than reality," says a narrator.
The City of Houston's websiteoffers these tips:

When I saw this, I could not help but remember this posting which I made last week.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

My main question is; Should we take this as "forewarning".

If this is taken down real quick and I worked in an office building in Houston, I would get nervious and lay out sick for a while.

I am not normally an alarmist, but sometimes there are just too many coincidences !

This is getting very strange indeed.

Just read this breaking news, maybe that should make something entitled, Maryland Office? Workers - Watch Out!

Someone is up to something, I think. :


DEVELOPING: Authorities have arrested a Maryland man they say threatened to carry out a mass shooting at his workplace, Fox News has learned.

Police arrested 28-year-old Neil Prescott of Crofton, Md., after the man allegedly called his employer and threatened to shoot people.

WJLA-TV reports that the suspect was about to get fired from his job. He was arrested in Crofton, Md., Thursday night.

A source close to the investigation told Fox News that the suspect is "emotionally disturbed."

When police took him into custody, they found an "arsenal" of weapons inside his home, the source said.

The Prince George's County Police Department is planning a news conference on the investigation at 1 p.m. local time.

Edit Addition: The way they butchered Napalitano's face makes the whole article a little questionable, though, don't you think?

That site looks pretty suspect. Where is the supposed video? I wanted to share it with my co-workers and subordinates. My next team meeting after the Colorado shooting, I instructed my team on how to best survive a similar attack in our office. There is nothing wrong with being prepared.

Can anyone find the actual Houston instructional video?

After any massively covered and sensationalized media event, there are going to be knee jerk reactions by all the people that like to fret and worry, including those that hold offices of power that allow them to enact programs, local city legislation, and other such.

After the Columbine shootings, for instance, lots of schools suddenly got metal detectors, and banned kids from wearing trench coats.

It's a coping mechanism society goes through, driven by those in power that have the means to carry out actions to mitigate their own worry, or the vocal concern of their constituents.

Houston is in Texas right?
Texas people love their guns! It's only fitting and almost predictable that a major city in Texas pops up in the news with a PSA for office workers.

It can be found on the OP's link; just click on the red arrow to play.

Although, most of the information is basic...

Must be blocked. I don't get any red arrows to push, the cyborg picture at the top just comes up as a single image, and embeded videos below are Occupy stuff, not an instructional video? Something must be getting filtered out by my firewall at work.

The DoD has had training for a couple of years now concerning, "Active Shooters", ie: disgruntled workers.

But to say it is actual training is disingenuous, it really death by PowerPoint. It really doesn't prepare anybody for a actual attack, but it does check the block.

At least somebody’s Gov’t job is safe…right?

I think that not only do office workers need to look out; but also people in churches, people in gyms, libraries, malls; etc. anywhere in this life can be a hot spot for crazy criminals.

I also think that it is good to have a plan ahead of time; because you never know in life what may happen just around any corner.

I refuse to live my life in fear and paranoia of what "might happen"
I'm simply not buying into the media generated fear mongering. I don't know the purpose of this hysteria but it's manufactured, transparent and socially manipulative.

If I did, I wouldn't drive because there is where the real danger is; not some random terrorist or crazy gun nut.

Let's party....next round is on me and can I have this next dance, jita bonita?

Carry. Carry at home, work, office, church, and everywhere else. Avoid places where you can't carry. Carry heavy, carry often. You never need a gun until you need one very badly.

Take the hundreds of millions of guns and the high psychiatric drug usage rate as a forewarning...

I had the same type of training when I used to work near the Las Vegas Strip, and this was before Sept. 2001. It is just basic common sense, and a good supervisor tries to make sure that staff know what to do in certain unexpected situations.

People in Houston do not need to watch out, as this would apply to all of us. No one needs to worry, but as you said, it is always a good idea to be prepared.

new acronym to remember

Run
Hide
Fight

and the scene in the break room, the guy with the fire extinguisher. he's using it wrong. best to spray you assailant in the face with it, then bash him.
people need to have training when using fire extinguishers.

Wait a second...does that guy have a registered license to use that fire extinguisher in that manner.

I'm contacting the ACLU.

yea, some money grubbing lawyer would try and sue if you sprayed & bashed a armed assailant in in the face and head.
got to protect those criminal's rights.

but you know, i was surprised that they said to fight. i guess that's for the future when all that is left in this country's in the sheeple. and homegrown terrorists. you know those of us that still believe in the constitution, family unit,freedom and all that the country use stand.

This was something similar that occured at Antioch College when it was in the middle of it's "troubles" (Antioch is back in business and alive and well btw and totally severed from Antioch University which has questionable ties to certain groups).

but watch this video. It is very strange especially regarding the timing when the University was trying to destroy the college. Basically it is an "emergency scenario" that used the Antioch College Library as a scene where there is a terrorist or shooter loose on campus. It was a "training" excercise.. but it seems more like a psyop to me.

I am going to opine that if the door to the building had a sign that said -

" All of our employees are encouraged to apply for and carry a concealed weapon while both at work and en route to and from the building."

Instead of " concealed weapons of any type are prohibited in this building".

Perhaps the shooter would have chosen an entirely different building.

Just a thought. That is like advertising - "Hey, no one here has the ability to fight back in any way...come on in and go crazy with it..."

I have a small business and I encourage my workers to get a concealed carry permit. I paid for my live in managers training, permit and weapon as a part of his employment. There will be no victims here.
