Imagine my surprise that this was local. Wyoming, MI is maybe a mile from my house. The title is melodramatic, but the events are still disturbing. (Summary: with no warning to students or parents, there was an “evacuation” drill which involved police in full riot gear announcing a “threat” to the school, and running around the school with weapons and ordering kids around, searching their pockets and the like — which I don’t think is even legal.) The police say they didn’t know that the kids had not been told about it.
Maybe it’s just me but I have a hard time imagining any scenario that’s statistically likely to happen that this would be useful preparation for.
Unless there’s something to that “new law that makes it easy for Bush to declare martial law” story that’s going around.
