Default Pa. school district arms teachers with baseball bats in wake of Fla. shooting

If anyone wants to know why our country is going downhill, look no further than the ironically-named "educators"...

Pa. school district arms teachers with baseball bats in wake of Fla. shooting

Notice how the headline omits the word "miniature"...



Quote:
In the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, a school district in a suburb of the northwest Pennsylvania city of Erie is arming its 500 teachers with baseball bats, reports CBS Erie affiliate WSEE-TV. "It is the last resort," said Millcreek Schools Superintendent William Hall, "but it is an option and something we want people to be aware of."

According to Hall, the 16-inch bats were distributed to each teacher following an in-service training day on how to respond to school shootings.

"We passed them out, with the goal being we wanted every room to have one of these," said Hall. "Unfortunately, we're in a day and age where one might need to use them to protect ourselves and our kids."

Hall says the bats are primarily "symbolic", but are now an option for teachers to use, should they need to fight back in a school shooting.

Millcreek Education Association president Jon Cacchione says he supports the decision to arm teachers with bats, which will be locked up in each classroom.

"This is a tool to have in the event we have nothing else," said Cacchione. "Part of the formula now is to fight back, and so I think the bats that were provided for the staff were symbolic of that."
God help us all...

Or,

Please, Mr. Bad Guy Psycho. Give me time to unlock my miniature bat so that I can use it against you.

I thought the box of rocks in every classroom was the dumbest idea possible. I was wrong.

This sounds like those stupid duck and cover the back of your head drills they used to have for potential nuclear attacks a long time ago.Basically its to alleviate any fears of dying from attack with the false hope that they will be able to save themselves.

Well they had to use mini-bats and not the larger scary looking ASSAULT bats.

And you can strike only 5 times per bat. Then you have to get another one.
