Attack

http://www.gopusa.com/news/2015/04/02/terrorists-target-christians-kill-more-than-70-at-kenyan-university/?subscriber=1

Police in Kenya were guarding a school when at least five armed gunman arrived and started shooting at the students.  At least 70 students were killed and at least 75 were wounded in the attack.  The terrorists had attacked other sites in the country in recent years and claimed they were going to conduct more attacks.

Five armed suspects with guns is not very many.  A team of that size could be put together right here in America.  It would not cost very much to arm and train a group of that size.  They would only need basic firearms proficiency that they could get anywhere.

Most agencies have a school someplace in their jurisdiction.  Is your agency ready for an incident of this kind?  Are you ready for an incident of this type?  If there are five armed men, can you take them on alone?  Can you coordinate this kind of incident if you are the primary officer?  This kind of attack could happen tomorrow; that's what the SGT Says.
