School teachers in Indiana are on the defensive after an active shooter drill proved that they are neither equipped nor prepared to deal with such attacks.

The incident that brought the truth to light occurred at   Meadowlawn Elementary School where the White County Sheriff’s Office conducted the shooter simulation.

As part of the drill, educators that where unable to successfully barricade their classrooms or find adequate cover for themselves and students were shot with airsoft pellets.

Now the teachers are complaining that the “simulated fire” was too painful, despite it being far less fatal than a bullet.

“They told us, ‘This is what happens if you just cower and do nothing,'” one teacher said. “They shot all of us across our backs. I was hit four times. It hurt so bad.”

However White County Sheriff Bill Brooks stated that the teachers were aware they could be ‘shot’ during the exercises and that they were not in danger.

“They all knew they could be,” Brooks said. “It’s a shooting exercise.” He also shared that the faux ammunition was “a soft, round projectile,” adding. “the key here is ‘soft.'”

Now the Indiana State Teachers Association is now attempting to alter House Bill 1004, specifically looking to require the bill to stipulate that teachers cannot be shot with anything during drills. 

If they had actually learned from the event they would realize that they need a way to prevent a threat from roaming through the school. Something that could have been stopped if any of the teachers had armed themselves or security personnel had been put in place.
