An armed security officer at Oxford High School in Michigan says she thought the 2021 shooting by a student was an ALICE shooter drill, which often simulate gun violence. She said she assumed a bleeding victim she walked past had "really good makeup" on.

A security officer at Oxford High School allegedly thought the deadly November 2021 shooting was an active shooter drill, telling investigators that she assumed a bleeding victim she walked past had "really good makeup" on.

Kimberly Potts, a retired law enforcement official who was employed by Oxford Community Schools as an armed security officer at the time, also allegedly opened the door of a bathroom that two students and the shooting suspect were in, closed the door, and walked away. One of the students hiding was later shot in that bathroom and died the next day.

These new allegations were revealed on Wednesday by the victims' families and their lawyer, Ven Johnson. The families are now seeking to include Potts as a defendant in their civil lawsuit over the Michigan school shooting that killed four students and injured several more.

The families did not know about Potts's involvement until Johnson reviewed surveillance video of the shooting at the prosecutor's office recently, the lawyer said at a press conference Wednesday. The video has not been shared with the public because it's under a court protective order.

3. And IF it were a drill, you would ignore bleeding people and do what?

IF these drills were to make security MORE prepared instead of pandering to stupidity....

then WHAT do you do if you see someone bleeding in real life or in a drill?


Provide ASSISTANCE, notify someone?

See if they are alive or not?


Come on.

That's my thoughts from basic first aid.

What would a Girl Scout do?

A Home Health Aide?

A lifeguard?


ANYONE who had ever had a minute of first aid training knows that bleeding people need some assistance or they could die.
