True Chaos

A gunman opened fire in a dormitory and a classroom at a college in Virginia on Monday, killing at least 30 people in the deadliest campus shooting in U.S. history. The gunman also was killed, and at least 22 other people were injured.


My heart goes out to the loved ones affected by this senseless tragedy. Working for a higher institution just makes this hit even closer to home. :(

This recently arrived in our inbox precipitated by today's horrendous action.

"UNWANTED INTRUDER

Definition: Unwanted Intruder – A person threatening person or property. This may be verbally or physically and/or with a weapon.

In the event that an unwanted intruder is present take the following actions:

STEPS OF ACTION:

2. If classes are in session lock all classroom doors, keeping students inside.
3. Evacuate hallways and bathrooms.
4. STAY CALM and do not alarm students"

It's horrible what happened. I just wonder why!? What provoked someone to do something like that?


Unfortunately at Chaos College the only person there that would take these things seriously would be your Dean of Students. Always keep him in the loop.

I wouldn't think of not mentioning anything of note to him. Guess I should put him on speed dial though...
