What is the point of hiring security personnel if they are too afraid to act when there is a need for action? The news reported that the on-campus police officer at the Parkland Shooting failed to respond to the threat:
The sheriff's deputy who was assigned to the Florida school where a gunman killed 17 people last week has left the force after evidence showed he stood outside the building where the shooting occurred rather than going in, Sheriff Scott Israel said Thursday.
"He never went in," Sheriff Israel said, describing video footage of the scene he had watched.
Asked what school resource officer Scot Peterson, who was the only armed security guard at the school, should have done, the sheriff said he should have gone into the building, "addressed the killer, killed the killer."
"What matters is that when we in law enforcement arrive at an active shooter, we go in and address the target. And that's what should have been done," the sheriff said. The video hasn't been released publicly.
I imagine most of you have some type of security at your firm or campus.
How is the security at your workplace/school and how would you expect them to react to something such as an active shooter?
Do you think that it is their duty to take the bullet for you if the situation arises?
