New style active school shooter drill “…the shooter is a dark skinned male…” Of course he is. That’s become normalized expectations – and this is becoming normalized expectations too. Maybe it shouldn’t have to be. Aren’t the adults supposed to fix the problems? Who is doing school walkouts despite their schools and parents giving them punishments? It’s not the adults. “This active shooter drill at East High School in Anchorage, Alaska simulates the sound of gunshots The purpose of this training is to teach students what actual gunfire sounds like”

Trickle down doesn’t work – and any actual laws that pass that might help will mostly benefit better funded schools.

It’s still different though because more benefits will trickle into inner city schools than money trickles down the class system from tax breaks.

Compounding interest is amazing and even if it’s middle class kids and up that benefit from fixing a few things it’s something. Beats no $ at all. Compound interest of $0 is $0.

But you’re right: white privilege benefits from compounding interest in this case. (ducks for cover for saying the naughty words)

Student shooting. That’s more accurate, yes. Teachers are collateral damage.

Can’t fix every problem. But we can fix some.

“school shooting” is anytime a firearm is discharged at school and somebody is hurt.

Firearms going off at school is abnormal.

Hyperbole is everywhere. “Gangs of Mexicans are killing people everywhere”. Same thing. Normal US exaggerration.

Underwhelming solutions are also a common US thing. “We’re going to put $1.5 millions to this problem”, which pays the salaries of a dozen people, some office supplies and their cell phone bills for a year and nothing gets fixed.
