Posted on 10/18/2013 4:25:38 PM PDT by lowbridge
Sixth-grade students at Eastern Wayne Middle School in North Carolina unknowingly took part in a horrifying enrichment lesson involving a fake masked gunman last Friday.
As students sat in class, someone in a mask reportedly rushed into the room and pretended to rob them with a fake pistol. The students were not aware of the exercise ahead of time.
When angry parents predictably complained, the school sent a letter explaining why the exercise was conducted:
As part of an enrichment lesson on exhibiting good citizenship and observing your surroundings, another staff member entered the sixth grade classrooms and pretends to steal an item while dressed in a ski-mask and holding a toy pistol. Even though the play-acting caused some initial concerns, once the skit was completed, the teachers quickly explained who the person was and that the theft was not real.
Given all the concerns about school shootings, there likely was a much better way of teaching students to be aware of their surroundings.

Might of actually made sense if the ‘gunman’ had been wearing an Obama mask.
“...another staff member holding a toy pistol...”
Zero tolerance; fire his ass.
Reason #10,009,187 why not to send your children to a public school.
Some prison time should be in order for the masked douche.
Who cares what the parents want? The state owns their children. Better not speak up, citizen - the camps are waiting.
Even though the play-acting caused some initial concerns, once the skit was completed, the teachers quickly explained
that the thief was from the IRS and was only there to help
And if someone had plugged him, it would have been real enrichment.
SUE SUE SUE!!!!
Beginning with the principal, a whole bunch’a people would’a got an ass woopin’ ... you did WHAT to my kid ? !!??!!
one of the students pulled out a handgun and emptied it into the robber.
That would be my favorite ending.
It’s no mystery why test scores are atrocious. What an appalling waste of time.
who got expelled for the fake gun? hold libtards accountable to their own idiot zero tolerance rules. they have no mercy for anyone else.
Idiot principal needs to be fired
I would be pulling my kid out of that hellhole
If they wanted to make it realistic they should have had someone wearing an Obama mask take all the personal belongings from the white kids at gunpoint and redistribute it all to the illegals and black kids.
AT least he didn’t have a partially eaten pop tart!!!
So stupid. When I was in college one of my profs (can’t remember which class) included as a lesson from the book a documentary on this. We watched it on a screen in class. Why couldn’t they just have done something like that?
Don’t you just love how these bureacrats use such nonsense gobloldee-goop language. The hypocritical clowns will suspend an innocent child for pointing his finger like a gun but will terrify unsuspecting children with a adult pointing a gun at them. I wonder how many children had nightmares that night.
“Beginning with the principal, ...”
Principal and teachers deny any knowledge of the dudes plan to use mask and gun.
It’s good this didn’t happen in my son’s class. The “gunman” probably would have been tackled hard.
