  •  Why artifically limit options. (0+ / 0-)

    The Columbine officer was in the parking lot at the time the shooters entered.

    These situations are already unpredictable, enough.

    It's very doubtful any amount of talking would have stopped, much less, slowed the Virginia Tech shooter.

    Instructors and staff can be educated on the use of a full range of legal options, from negotiation to, if necessary, lethal force.

    Artificially limiting options based on a perception is the very model of security theatre.

    The whole decade needs an asterisk.

    •  Yes, we need natural limits, not artificial ones, (2+ / 0-)

      as artificial ones can give you cancer. More chaos and gunfire is always better. I'm sure that law enforcement would agree and be enthusiastic in deputizing the janitor, the principal and Bart Simpson. Great ideas.
