This PSA was recently released by the LA County Sheriff’s Department.  It is a very graphic representation of how to survive an active shooter situation.  It is obviously not acceptable for use with kids, but it does show a classroom security lock used by a teacher, as well as a locked exit blocking the escape of a victim.  Be forewarned, the video shows actors being shot…it’s not like we haven’t seen that on TV and in movies dozens (hundreds? thousands?) of times, but I’m not sure how I feel about it in video meant to educate adults.  It seems extreme but I’m interested in your opinion.

There is an ABC News story about the video here.

The following video contains graphic content of a violent nature. Viewer discretion is advised. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has created this video to help people answer the question “What would you do?” in the event of a sudden attack by a gunman while at work, at school, or in public.

What do you think?  Is this beneficial in educating the public about active shooter situations?
