    Dad poses as gunman to test school security, gets arrested

    Dad poses as gunman to test school security, gets arrested - U.S. News

    A Texas man is facing third-degree felony charges of making a terroristic threat after he allegedly told elementary school staffers he brought a gun to the building.

    Officials say Ronald Miller was unarmed Wednesday when he told a school greeter outside Celina Elementary School that he had a gun, according to NBCDFW.com. The town of Celina is just north of Dallas.

    The greeter froze in panic when Miller said he was a gunman and his target was inside, Celina Independent School District Superintendent Donny O'Dell told NBCDFW.com. Miller was then able to walk into the school and entered the office.

    "He told them that he is a shooter and 'you're dead, and you're dead,'" O'Dell told NBCDFW.com. Never showing a weapon, Miller then reportedly revealed his stunt was a test of school safety and he wanted to talk to the principal.
    That fact that someone would do this at all is astounding. But at an elementary school after Sandy Hook is incomprehensible. I also think the school should have handled it better. It goes on to say that they didn't call the police until he left the building.

    Wouldn't it be great if the 'greeter' blew him away?

    Granted, that's pants-on-head stupid, but yeah...why weren't there two or three tasers taking this jackhole down, just feet from the entrance? They still let him through to the office.

    I think he made his point.

    If anyone stupid enough to try such a stunt could get into the building where he could actually shoot someone, then the security system certainly failed the test, didn't it?

    and what real shooter would identify himself as such and say his target was in the building? Even doing that, no one stopped him. How's that for a pathetic security system? It would be like an Al Qaeda guy standing up and shouting, "Hey! Over here! I'm a nutter suicide bomber, and I'm coming to get you!"

    and the security guard standing there and saying, "Well, goll eeee! What do do now, what do do...."

    He's lucky a parent (or authorized teacher) that carries didn't walk up behind him. He, at least, woulda needed a new pair of pants, if not a new head.

    Even without a gun, if I was behind the guy, I'd have layed 'm down, with broken stuff.

    It sounds like the greeter was either a volunteer or a staff member who was greeting and not in any way acting as a security guard. For all we know it was a student's grandmother, so I can't say I'm surprised that the greeter froze. But the office with several people in it should have been able to handle a guy who wasn't holding a weapon.

    He proved the point that their security sucked, but holy snap that was a colossally stupid way to go about it.
