Canutillo High School will be on lockdown Thursday, but law enforcement wants to assure parents it's just a drill.

The Canutillo Independent School District, along with the El Paso Sheriff's Office, El Paso Community College Police, U.S. Border Patrol, and El Paso Constables, are conducting a surprise drill in order to "gauge response by students, faculty and staff" that will mock an emergency lockdown situation on campus.

I am a significant other to one of the teachers who was subjected to this drill and would like to understand how it is appropriate for law enforcement officials to enter a school building firing blanks in weapons to simulate a school shooting. The staff was terrified, I understand that one of the police officers fired a weapon direclty at the school secretary. When did our country decide it was appropritate to terrorize unwitting school employes and students?
