For those that don't know, my wife attends Life University in Marietta. They have been sending out e-mails for a while now saying that on Tuesday 11/16 they will be doing emergency response and emergency preparedness drills at the school. The drills were joint between Life Univ Police, Marietta Police, Marietta Fire Dept, and Cobb County Police. While I have no problems with this and understand the need for them, they did get a little carried away at one point. They had costumed "masked gunmen" with blank firing guns rush into the student cafe yelling and firing. The cafe there is a 28,000sf student cafeteria/lounge/study area/hang out. The "victims" who were shot knew about it, but in none of the notices that they sent said that there would be people portraying masked gunmen. It seems that some students were rather upset by this "incident" happening and went to the Univ Presidents office in tears after. What would have happened if there was a Marietta PD officer there who did know about the drill and saw "masked gunmen" entering the cafe and returned fire? What would have happened if a student or someone else was armed (even though it's not legal on campus) and saw the "masked gunmen" shooting, didn;t know that it was part of a drill, and drilled the guys with a few rounds in the chests?
