Campus Safety No-No

We're having a bomb threat drill at my campus on Friday. When the alert is sent out we are supposed to search our immediate work areas for anything suspicious. This seems like a legitimate safety exercise, but it reminded me of another safety exercise last year in North Carolina that wasn't as well thought out. At Elizabeth City State University a campus policeman pretending to be a gunman burst into a classroom and held them hostage. Apparently that wasn't realistic enough so he then lined the students up against a wall and threatened to kill the student with the lowest GPA. Brilliant! Read the full story here.
