This Is What Extreme Security In "America's Safest School" Looks Like

Welcome to Southwestern High School in suburban Indiana, where the classrooms door are bullet-resistant...

...ceilings have built-in smoke-bombs...

...cameras are everywhere, and the Sheriff’s department - only 10 miles away - can track an intruder in real-time.

Additionally, as The Daily Signal reports, the school has a top-of-the-line security system - which can be activated in the event of an emergency by teachers who wear special key fobs - that has been called “revolutionary” and is reported to have cost $400,000. It was installed after the Indiana Sheriff’s Association selected the school as a test site.

“I think that Newtown, Sandy Hook, really made people understand, made us all understand that this could happen to us,” Dr. Paula Maurer, Southwestern Consolidated Schools superintendent, told local affiliate Fox59.

“Now is the time to do something about it. We have some answers. We have the technology. We have ways to make our kids safer and we have to do it.”

The system came at no cost to Southwestern High School after Net Talon, the Virginia security company behind the design, offered to fund the installation. The school also used grant money to cover some costs. It raises the question of whether such a system could be implemented elsewhere and, perhaps more glaringly, how it would be funded.

Remember when Obummer used to tell the enemy what the US war plan was?  Liberals must love showing off their defense equipment.  I think saying the school has a $400K security system would have been more effective than demonstrating it item by item....they only wish this was Fake News.

"and the Sheriff’s department - only 10 miles away"

That would be about ten minutes. Easily empty three or four 30 rd mags of directed fire.

Tick Tock.

Wait until someone hacks the building's systems.

Nice to find out Cui bono from these events, besides the gun control crowd.

Government mind washing camps.

 

There, fixed it for you.

 

My solution to these statist indoctrination camps are simple.

 

Caterpillar D-11R x2

 

Caterpillar 994K loader, only one needed, these are the big ones.

 

Approximately 35 end dumps, AR-500 Rock beds preferred.

 

Somewhere to pile up 100 plus years of lies brought to you by the Prussian Volksschule.

 

Simple enough for even the most mindless of the tax cattle I'm sure.

 

Now you can flame away, and please throw some of your progressive , "but if we didn't have government schools".

Americans love having guns, and touching guns, and pointing guns at stuff and shooting guns at stuff.

But this is a people issue. It is obvious to anyone in a European country that Americans are just like Muslims and sometimes they get depressed about their shitty lives, watch silly internet videos and get brainwashed into acts of violence.

 

Fortunately “white Europeans” don’t have this mental defect and that’s why we only see Americans and Muslims doing this kind of shit.

No, it's more the fact that about half of Americans have become childish through decades of being infected by liberalism/progressivism/socialism. It is liberals penchant for trying to perfect people through the nanny-state that is the problem. There were per-capita as many guns in this country in the 1950s, but kids and other people didn't go around shooting people. So what's different? SSRIs (antidepressants) and liberalism...a very insidious and volitile mixture.

So what happens when the gunman (often a teenager and often a student at that school) enters a classroom and locks the door? The gunman now has hostages, the cops will still be 10 miles away and any gas dropped from the ceiling will be useless against a decent gas mask? (available online from hundreds of suppliers).

Wouldn't America's safest school have every teacher armed and ready?

No, not Israel.  Here's why:

1. Israel isn't really even Israel, it is more accurately Rothschildville.

2. All ordinary citizens in Israel are under Debt-Money Tyranny oppression by the Money Power Monopolists.  To put numbers on it, 99.999+% are oppressed in Israel by a fraudulent money system that systematically impoverishes them.

3. The very same Money Power Monopolists also provide money to every single Western Country, including the United State and Europe.

4. The Supranational Money Power are the root cause.

5. You do a disservice to everyone by incorrectly (and dishonestly after this post) assigning the blame to the 99.999+% of ordinary Jewish people that are prey to the true predator that you omit from the discussion.

6. "Omission is the most powerful form of lie." ~George Orwell.

And that's logical fallacy...  are you educated enough to know it by name?

And when logically fallacy is the sum total of all you put forward, well, one thinks it is likely you are either 1. dishonest, or 2. lack logic.

Either way, it would be an excellent move on your part to fix the root cause, whatever it is.

Exactly, these are responses to the symptoms of the disease, not treatments for the disease itself.

I personally don't think the cure would be accepted, but that's just my thoughts on the matter, but let's look at the reasons that young people feel compelled to do these terrible things now where as in my youth we never thought about doing this sort of thing.

Constitution, June 14, 1788

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.”
– Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, October 10, 1787

A friend of mine, or former friend since we haven't talked since I said this, put her kids in a new school. I was visiting and asked what she thought of the new school. The first thing she said was how excited she was to see drug dogs being used to sniff the student's lockers. There were a few other things involving the pigs that she gloated about. To which I replied "I've heard of them doing that elsewhere." She asked where and I said "prison."

We're fucked regardless of who wins between conservatives and liberals. The conservatives want a police state. The liberals want Sharia law.
