Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014 — Gunshots and screams resonated throughout the halls of Lassen High School in order to train local law enforcers and first responders in case the inconceivable were to happen.

On Monday, Aug. 4, the Susanville Police Department spearheaded an in-depth active shooter training, and invited all local agencies to participate in, train and experience what would happen if an armed assailant were to attack students at a local school.

“We wanted to train them as realistically as possible … to better prepare all of us,” said Chief of Police Tom Downing. “We’ve never had this type of training of this magnitude.”

Judge Dread & David Parks, you two are great examples of the small minded, local village idiots in this area. According to your logic, probably 90% of NBA players (black & white) are gang members! Maybe the NBA Refs should start packing weapons too! Or maybe, the SPD can get militarized drones that will target individuals with tats on their necks or face! Or maybe they could target small minded bigots!

I agree with Judge Dread about the gang activity. It is true that Susanville has changed ever since we lost our last lumber mill. That was way back in 2003. Each year has gotten worse. Maybe it is time to sell and move .. I miss the old Susanville..

Why does a worn out lumber town need such firepower?
Because we are now a PRISON TOWN, full of violent offenders. Don't believe me? Go into Wal-Mart and count the gang-related neck and face tatoos, I stopped at 12.

This training should be a regular event that Law Enforcement should do every year. With the way schools through America have become. You never know if you will see your children alive again, when they go off to school. It is a sad way to look at why this type of training has to be taught to Law Enforcement. But it is true.

Why don't they use real guns, like my H&K MR762A1, now that's a rifle... Not like the pea shooters they're holding!
