Mock Shooting At UK School Scares Children

Youngsters, aged between 10 and 13, thought they were taking part in a fire drill when an alarm bell rang and they were ushered out into the playground.

But they were left in terror as a man appeared brandishing a gun and appeared to shoot dead Richard Kent, their science teacher, as he ran across a field.

Following a loud bang simulating a gunshot, other staff involved in the act rushed to the teacher’s aid and appeared to try to resuscitate him.

There was a delay of 10 minutes before weeping pupils were taken back to the assembly hall where teachers explained that the pretend shooting had been laid on as part of a science lesson.

Full Story – HERE

What sort of principles of science would that be demonstrating?

It blows my mind that more than one adult apparently thought that staging a realistic shooting, complete with a dramatic death and resuscitation, was a good idea.

Now that you mention it I’m surprised the kids reacted the way they did, considering they should have known it was a hoax because it involved a gun, which as you mentioned are banned there. :roll: hehe

Wow, what a terrible idea. Whoever came up with this idea is an idiot. To quote the character played by Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder – “He went full retard.”

Wow, I just read the article more thoroughly (after posting the other comment), and they can’t even seem to apologize about it. They said the problem is that there was too much of a time delay between the “act” and letting the kids know that it wasn’t real! And that it was “an original idea but one that went too far.” I gotta tell you, being original or different isn’t always a good thing! And the line that is perhaps the best:

“It was one of the more popular teachers who played the victim, I don’t think there would have been as much concern if it was one or two of the others.”

So it would have been fine if they’d chosen a teacher that students didn’t like as well. Good news folks, it’s not just school administrators in the U.S. that are complete morons.

This is meant only to scare the children and drill into their heads the ‘Guns are bad. Guns are always bad. Guns will only kill people you love.’ sort of mentality.

When the people become subject then they should not be surprised when their children are subjected to experimentation by the elite class.

I say FUCK THE UK. They gave up their rights and allowed themselves to become SUBJECTS of the elite. What happens to them now is THEIR fault.

If that was my child school I would be beating some ass right after that.

Interesting, I had not thought of it that way!

Fuck us? I live in the uk and am not patriotic at all, but there’s no need for that. I wasn’t talking when the bans occured. If it were up to me, then god help that man, ‘cos life isn’t so good with two in the chest and one in the head. People like you and me, who know firearms aren’t what they’re said to be, aren’t just americans. People in the UK are the same.

I had always wondered what would happen if a high school were to put on a mock shooting demonstration to show the dangers of bullying and such. This isn’t quite what I had in mind, though …
