I think there is some really bad spin being put on this story by the media, and the union.

The union representing the rank and file BP agents has been fighting an on again, off again war with DHS and with the president in the media for a number of years now. Going back to the Bush Administration. A quick web search will give you articles going back to 2005 and beyond.

It's unfortunate, but it's more of the on going war of words between the union and the bosses.

Sigh.... Bad media, I took that same FEMA class. Its for civilian personnel in case of a active shooting incident, it just describes how to report the gunman to law enforcement dispatch. Lock doors, stay away from walls and windows or barricade yourself.

It says in their manual not to leave a room, until law enforcement deems the area clear and safe. What the media is trying to do is sensationalize absolute FUD, it doesn't pertain to law enforcement, or DHS LE. It's just flat out lies and bs.

In spite of the fact that I see staggering stupidity from the .gov on a regular basis, healthy skepticism is always in order, especially from the MSM.

That is just one of these on-line training things that are designed for everyone not just LE, I remember reading it and thinking....wtf is this?!?

Lol, I took that training a few months ago. Theres a block asking you to type what you would do etc in a certain situation.....mind read "2 to the chest, 1 in the head" but I'm a firearms instructor, failure drills just come naturally I guess.
