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.
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.
