Oregon Teachers Traumatized by Unannounced Shooter Drill

Panic erupted on Friday at Pine Eagle Charter school in rural Oregon when two masked men carrying handguns burst into a teachers’ lounge and opened fire.

After the initial chaos, the terrified teachers realized the guns were firing blanks and that they were the subject of an unannounced shooter drill.

The little school in Halfway, Oregon was having an in-service day, so the children were at home at the time of the drill. The terrifying action has drawn criticism from many but Principal Cammie DeCastro has defended it, saying, “For us not to know how we were going to respond is leaving us open”.

Principal Cammie DeCastro said it became clear very quickly just how many of the school’s 15 teachers would have survived. The answer: “Not many,” she said.

Elementary teacher Morgan Gover, 31, said only two teachers would have lived to tell the tale. She admitted being scared, and also acknowledged she would have been among the casualties, having taken several fake direct hits from the shooters.

“I’ll tell you, the whole situation was horrible,” she said. “I got a couple in the front and a couple in the back.”

The surprised staff had received training from the Union County Sheriff’s Office on active shooter scenarios. They had been told they had some options, such as not rushing out of their classrooms when gunfire erupted, and locking and barricading their doors.

They weren’t expecting a drill like this, and they were caught by surprise when the two men entered and began firing.

“There was some commotion,” DeCastro said.

The goal of the drill was to learn how people would react, so better emergency plans could be made, she said. (source)

In light of the fear-mongering by the mainstream media after the Sandy Hook school shooting last December, some people feel that this “drill” increases fearfulness.

The school administration plans to take what they’ve learned from the drill to better prepare.

The district’s Safety Committee and the School Board now will critically evaluate policies and procedures and decide what to do next, said DeCastro.

Armed teachers is one possible outcome, she said. Or the district may get armed and trained volunteers from the community to watch over the school in shifts, she said. Tougher doors and better locks are other options.

Had one of the teachers in that lounge already taken the time to prepare, the unannounced drill could have had tragic results.

    Jason you are very accurate, expect more Staged terror plots by the FBI and DHS like in Boston. They are getting better at them

  • sorin markov

    I’m thinking of so many “what if’s”… heart attack, teacher with concealed, dumb ass cop with live ammo. yeah, would take my kids out of this school.

  • RickE.

    Law enforcement’s acting like goldfish on a feeding frenzy! (I am assuming that this WAS law enforcement).

    This crap is out of control, and during the next several weeks we’re going to see more “drills” in various parts of the country.
    There are so many ways this could have gone wrong with bad results.
    One of these days the advancing police state is going to meet the grim reaper!

  • RickE.

    Let’s see, thousands of big coffins, billions of rounds of ammo, 7,000 assault rifles,(for them personal protection rifles), DHS and law enforcement ordering targets of pregnant women, little kids, old ladies and men, tanks in the street, helicopters assault-style doing ops in cities, our cities being turned into a battlefield by government entities on drills, and God knows what else!
    Oh yeah, drones coming our way!
    Is THIS America??????

    Think of it as a ‘Beta’ test. ‘They’ are testing how soft and easily taken the ‘average teacher’ is in the Former United States, and ‘they’ have gotten their answer. By the lack of live-fire responses from the ‘practice victims’, it is easy to deduce that two armed men could have easily gone on to murder most of the school population.
    it was like the Boston Bombing scenario, kiddies. Every sheople simply aquieced, letting the military police state do what they wanted to.
    as for Oregon, there are too many dope-smoking hippie communists, and it is RIPE for the picking. It also helps that the NEA is basically in charge of deciding WHO can be ‘honored’ to be in charge of your children.
    The ‘POLICE’ continue, as always, to ‘protect and serve’. You never asked yourself WHO they do this for. IT AIN’T YOU!

    • Jean

      While you’re spot-on with the “Beta test” bit, slight disagree on the “normal” outcome.
      “Normal shootings” don’t occur when you KNOW the teachers are all in the lounge for an in-service day, nor do they seem to occur with that specific cluster of targets (IE, all adults in a cingle location.) Single adults in a clustered location (Teacher’s lounges not often large) is shooting fish in a barrel. Someone goes to a school to shoot people, they’ll enter through normal means, so far, and then shoot up a classrom, then move on. So the directions of Lock the door, get the kids up against a stone wall, turn off the lights (Make classroom look empty), and lock-and-load the handgun you carry [funny how that one’s never mentioned] works well. I’d add that, as responder to force, you need a clear line of sight to the target, with the shooter’s likely targets around the corner: Say, teacher hides under desk, school children quiet and along wall near door. IF door opens, Teacher presents force response; if door remains closed, everyone should be safe. But teacher needs clear line of sight to target, with minimal chance of becoming a target. [horrifying, perhaps, but better to have the students be the target – BAIT – and get a dead “bad guy”. Shouldn’t change the survival rate of the students either way. And even if teacher shoots and misses, “bad guy” likely to run away instead of engage. ]
      As to murdering the rest of the school population, in this scenario, erroneous conclusion as normal operations keep teachers separated much of the day, in class teaching. This would be a drill for infiltration, shooting a target (and witnesses) and exfiltration, at best. As a result – it’s basically a terrorist attack.

      This will have bad results. We MUST deal with the problem before we devolve back to the Dark Ages sort of serfs and nobles. That means take up arms and terminate with extreme prejudice the ones who wish to control us (usually couched in terms of “protecting” us or “increasing budget”.)

      As you note, TPTB are best served by corrupt officers: Police, Sheriff, etc. Acquiescence like in Boston isn’t uncommon, I think: given the circumstances, MOST people would act the same way. It’s similar to the old Alarm in Britain: Criminals got no quarter, no shelter. In this day and age, we recognize that police are corrupt and militarized, even violent: the Alarm doesn’t work, we’ll shelter people against the cops. THAT is where the problem starts. If we cannot trust or respect the police, they WILL escalate to brute force.
      We should follow their lead, but do it better and faster. Imagine 50 dead cops across the nation in a day. Not too many – but all ASASSINATED, not killed in the line of duty. Not run over during a traffic stop, killed in a gunfight, etc, but actually sniped from 50 yards+. Headshots. And a YouTube or “leaked” video claiming responsibility for the operation, stating the WHY and that it will continue as long as necessary: until dirty cops are removed by their fellow officers, and until the law is once again applied to ALL, EQUALLY. Until Jury nullification is legal again. (Nullification has resulted in prosecutions.)
      We can sacrifice a few, and maybe stop the problem, or at least stave off this war; OR, we can wait, hope for the best, hide our heads, and then either knuckle under or go out fighting anyway.
      It’s NOT rocket science, these people are obvious. They have become so powerful and numerous simply because WE haven’t held them accountable. Because past generations decided it wasn’t so bad, did the (honorable) “Wait and see” approach, we have this mess. If we also kick the can down the road, how bad will it get? How bad will it be for the future generations, when the most they can obtain is a hammer or a plastic picnic knife?

      BAsed on what I’ve seen in my lifetime, I know what the “stupid majority” will do: Nothing.

  • Heyoka

    Ha, Ha, Ha hilarious… I can tell you exactly what would have happened if I had been there. Someone whould have hit the ground hard and they would have suffered some traumatice physical injuries as well, fling a chair and rush, low is best as you move in and sweep. Classic move. Used to do it to a Ranger buddy of mine when he would start acting up… Worst thing was it was his favorite move. God help them if I were armed…

  • godhelpusall

    What dumb ass Demonickrat from Portland come up with that one?, Putting our house in Grants pass up for sale, and moving to Arizona. Jan brewer for president.

  • dadwasright

    I wonder what the shooters would be thinking if they were answered with a hail of hot lead ? Who were the morons with the death wish ? Wonder how useful it might be if someone rolled a grenade into the stall where the principle was seeking relief ? analyze that meat head.

    • Jean

      Heh… At the urinal, look over at the Principle, “My gun’s bigger than yours…”
      Then blow his dick off to prove it! LULZ for everyone! 😉
      (And if it’s a her… Hmmm…. M-80 over the stall wall? Or a CS Gas grenade, and lock her in? HAHAHAHAHA!!! How do you like me now?! )

  • Anonymous

    Can these false flags
    be taken to court?

    The amount of trauma upon innocent children, women, men and our own elderly is inhumane.

    Nearing a Human rights violation
    and it’s becoming very abusive. We need to
    draw a line.

  • Anonymous

    The correct response would be for the assaulting ppl. to be shot dead.

    gn ppl. to be shot dead.

  • Jesse

    I know the kids weren’t there but this seems so stupid to me, What if one of teachers would of had a gun on them? What if one of the teachers got so freaked out they had a heart attack?

    Hell what if one of the teachers ran up and hit one of the shooters with a fucking coffee pot? Let alone have a knife on them.

  • james stanton

    That was a reckless way of prepping a scenario. This does nothing to teach civilians how to react. However, if someone was armed at that time and had reacted to the event, the case for gun control would have been strengthened by the accidental deaths or injuries. I am insulted that people were allowedd to do this, yet I can’t even find a job as I am more than qualified to train people in scenarios such as these and conduct proper threat assessments. Leave the training to competent individuals. You will only help the gun control freaks.

    • Jean

      #1: There would be no ACCIDENTAL deaths or injuries. (So teacher becomes felon, as the teachers should KNOW it’s “Just a drill” if they respond. Propaganda by terrorism.)
      #2, it’s to inculcate fear and “order” (Negative discipline?) and keep the proles in line.

  • trouble06

    Was this school a Gun Free Zone?

  • shows you the difference between soft targets and hard targets* you can bet none of these “surprise drills” will be happening in schools with armed resource officers or teachers…shows you how well the DHS use your stapler as aweapon tactic works…someone needs to lose thier job over this crap*

    • Jean

      F*ck the job – take their head.

    • SKIP

      Bet for sure these things won’t be happenin in ShitCONGO pubIC skooz systems or in BLACKlanta skooz.

  • Jason H

    There’s a clear double standard here. If someone calls 911 for a prank they can go to jail or pay a fine. But the Gov can do a false flag drill and scare people half to death and not be held accountable.

  • Andy

    Good thing the teachers weren’t armed or the deputies would be dead.Good idea to have armed personnel in the schools,Works here in Mississippi.

  • Andy

    More thought on the matter,Gun free zones do not work,they just make the zone a target for crazies,criminals,and human predators.Go back and compare crime statistics between before gun free zones and after it was passed during The Clinton Administration,a famous anti-gunner.I bet more killings after the zone law.I could go into the gun rights issue but let me condense it down I am pro-gun rights,period no discussion,no debate,it is my Right that I will defend with my life!Keep your powder dry.

  • Carole Dyke

    I’m always armed (concealed). If I had been there, there is a good chance I would have shot back.

  • zac

    those fake shooters wouldve been dead if it had been me, i wouldnt of had blanks, this kind of shit makes me

    question shit like sandy hook, i just dont know about this country anymore, are they fucking stupid? they mustve known the school was a gun free zone…and a gun free zone is anything but a safe place. you are a free target in a gun free zone plane and simple, and they want us all to be unarmed victims
