Desensitization Training: Police Practice Fighting “Angry Parents”
From time to time, I have been highly annoyed with the school that my daughter attends. I have set up meetings with teachers, principals, and administrators. I have brought in paperwork and pleaded my case on a variety of topics. I have made scathing remarks. Once, I even had the utter audacity to argue a point with the principal with my daughter right there in the room, which is apparently a no-no because it “undermined the authority of the principal”.
However, I haven’t yet gone on a rampage against which the police would need to come in and defend the school against me.
They must do things differently in Puyallup, Washington.
Did you catch that?
“The idea was to test the response of police and firefighters to a situation that was right out of the news headlines.”
What news headlines?
I read a lot of news every day and these “angry parents” taking over a school at gunpoint, requiring SWAT intervention, somehow completely escaped my notice!
Well, it must be true, because the police officer in charge said, “We’ve been dealing with this across the country for years.”
It’s very obvious what this actually is. It is desensitization training.
to make emotionally insensitive or callous; specifically: to extinguish an emotional response (as of fear, anxiety, or guilt) to stimuli that formerly induced it.
So, by this definition, they want to make it easier for normally moral people to perpetuate an attack on a group of people that would ordinarily not be their targets. They don’t want these officers to have hesitation caused by anxiety or guilt before unloading on an “angry” mom or dad at a school.
This is very similar to the recent scandal of the targets of gun owners that were supplied to the DHS in order to make it easier for them to fire upon everyday people. The targets included an elderly woman, an elderly man, a little boy, and a pregnant woman in a nursery.
Once upon a time, police were there to protect people like parents, children, the elderly, and pregnant ladies. But the lines are being drawn and great effort is being undertaken to create a new breed of villains for the “authorities” to fight – and those villains are us.
