The Chicago police department has instructed its officers to run and barricade themselves into a safe hiding place in the event of an active shooter. This is why I carry a gun: when seconds count, the police are hiding to protect their own ass.
Internal aviation department documents obtained by CNN instruct officers: “do not become part of the response to an attack. If evacuation is not possible, you should find a place to hide where the active shooter is less likely to find you. Block entry to your hiding place and lock the door,” but Matt Brandon, secretary-treasurer of the airport officers union, told CNN they have serious issues with the protocol.
