The Columbine High School massacre changed the way police respond to active shooter scenarios.
Prior to Columbine, the law enforcement philosophy was one of containment; but that tactic, unfortunately, gave more time for the Columbine killers to pick off their classmates. So the philosophy has been changed to one of immediate engagement.
I secured a first-hand look at how the deputy sheriffs in Los Angeles train for these types of incidents.
Now, I’ve always had a great deal of respect for law enforcement — but experiencing, up close, the split-second decisions they must make on a daily basis… wow.
Sadly, we have a burgeoning hate group in this country called “Black Lives Matter,” which slanders cops in toto as racist. Hell, to hear those blockheads chant, you’d think that our men and women in blue are sitting around their locker rooms plotting which minority they plan to gun down before supper.
The reality is that law enforcement personnel of every color methodically trains to keep the neighborhoods they patrol safe from an active shooter devoted to creating carnage.
