Teachers who say they were left physically and emotionally scarred by an active-shooter drill at an Indiana elementary school last year are suing the sheriff's department responsible. The Meadowlawn Elementary School teachers say four White House County Sheriff's deputies subjected them to "verbal threats, expletives, and screaming," and shot them "execution-style" at point-blank range with plastic pellets after ordering them to face a wall and kneel, the Indianapolis Star reports. One first-grade teacher was later diagnosed with PTSD. The lawsuit says the teachers were shot with pellets during multiple exercises, causing injuries that took days or weeks to heal and left at least one teacher with permanent scars.

[wait for it...]

The sheriff's department says it no longer fires airsoft guns at teachers during shooter drills.

Item one from the complaint:
1. On January 4, 2019, teachers arrived at Meadowlawn Elementary School anticipating a professional development day. Most brought pens and paper, expecting to take notes. Instead, they were repeatedly attacked by law enforcement officers without explanation or warning. As part of what was ostensibly an active-shooter training, the teachers were struck by high-velocity plastic bullets and subjected to verbal threats, expletives, and screaming. The teachers displayed obvious signs of anguish and physical pain, but were humiliated to find the law enforcement officers joking and laughing at them. The terrifying and inexplicable experience left the teachers with lasting physical and emotional injuries.
If this is the case/true; the teachers had NO notice of what was going to take place, in effect being attacked, then many will prevail.
