drills are a fine thing when you know they're drills...a mayor's office called in a suspected hostage siutation is a city building (one where a children's abllet clas was going on.) Police, not told it was a drill, responded with swat (and guns drawn) and everything. No signs and barricades set up, people stopped and questioned not told it was a drill. The parents, outside the building were freaking out! Let alone the childred...with the fear and anxiety they've had since 9/11, someone though this was a good idea? I am FURIOUS. grrrrrrr drills. stupidity more like it.
