FBI runs mass killer response training program for policeThe drill is part of a training program the FBI is helping run for local law enforcement agencies nationwide. Acting on a White House directive after last December's Connecticut school massacre, and partnering with a Texas-based training center, the FBI this year has been teaching best practices for responding to mass shootings."You don't need negotiators, you don't have time for SWAT teams, you need to get in there as fast as possible and stop the killing," said Chris Combs, who runs the FBI's Strategic Information and Operations Center, the headquarters command post for major emergencies, and is involved in running the program.The goal is to promote a standardized strategy as local police departments — invariably the first officers to arrive — respond to such shootings. Besides the tactical drills, conferences run by FBI field offices are intended to prepare local agencies for the challenges of an active shooter emergency and to let them know that federal help, including extra manpower to interview witnesses, collect evidence and manage a sprawling crime scene, is available to them.

Of course these protocols were in place after Columbine with some modifications. Cops nationwide have been training for this for over a decade. But somehow it's news to the FBI and federal government like they just invented this and are sharing this revolutionary thinking with the dumb cops.Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.

I remember planning and training for this stuff over a decade ago. Feds are way behind like normal. I shot a qual course with the local FBI guys a couple of weeks ago. They are woefully unprepared for a gun battle up here. Pretty sad when little ole me out shot their hot shots (and I suck).'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Did they have an intensive course in Bull Shit Press conferences? When I used to go to FBI trainings, they mostly told us how great they were.
