(Campus Reform)   If you were a professor at a major university during a shooting, what would you do? Lock the doors? Turn off the lights? The correct answer is: carry on as normal, ignore your students' concerns, and joke about having them tackle the shooter   ( divider line

Why didn't the coips do anything to stop the shooterl?

AngryDragon: "In a video posted to YouTube Tuesday evening, lecturer Rebecca Trax is reportedly heard joking about the shooting "

It's a chick?  Oh please God.  Let her have tenure already. no chick. Not even sure it's a man either. It's like one of nature's prototypes, never meant for mass production.

Depends if they have tenure, if they do then nothing can phase them since they've been through the second most grueling employment process. The first is naturally becoming a Physician.

If they don't have tenure then they have nothing to live for so same result, different reasons.

Now, if this shooting happened during office hours that's another matter completely. In that case they'd have to turn the lights on and unlock the door to make the shooter believe that there's nobody in the office.

WelldeadLink: ransack.: Ferguson had emptied two 15-round magazines during the shooting. While reloading his third magazine, somebody yelled, "Grab him!"[14]

But really when the hell else are you going to do it? Only an idiot would rush a guy while he's shootlingl

That's why you shout for someone else to "Grab him!".

I know, right? After I posted that I thought the same thing and had a vision of a guy hunkered down behind a foam seat four feet away hearing the gun clicking and yelling that and sprinting away without ever looking back

ikanreed: Continuing in the face of danger was considered noble in WWII.  When did useless cowering that protects no one become the favored tactic?

In my day we had to walk 10 miles in the snow just to get shot at by an engineering student.

ZeroCorpse: Reading that site just makes me realize how much universities suck these days.

Not just the article in question, but the others all over the page.

There's no way that site is totally biased against higher ed.  Nope.
