This is America: 9 out of 10 public schools now hold mass shooting drills for students

How "active shooter" drills became normal for a generation of American schoolchildren.
"Are you kids good at running and screaming?" a police officer asks a class of elementary school kids in Akron, Ohio.
His friendly tone then turns serious.
“What I don’t want you to do is hide in the corner if a bad guy comes in the room,” he says. "You gotta get moving."
This training session — shared online by the ALICE Training Institute, a civilian safety training company — reflects the new normal at American public schools. As armed shooters continue their deadly rampages, and while Washington remains stuck on gun control, a new generation of American students have learned to lock and barricade their classroom doors the same way they learn to drop and roll in case of a fire.

Demak, Central Java. A migrant worker returning to Indonesia is among five drug smugglers nabbed in a crystal methamphetamine raid in the Demak district of Central Java, police said on Saturday (15/10).

The migrant worker, identified by the initials YT, had previously worked in Malaysia before being nabbed by the National Anti-Narcotics Agency (BNN) earlier this month after attempting to smuggle around 56 kilograms of crystal meth from Tegal, Central Java, to Tangerang, Banten.

Based on tip-offs from the suspect, BNN raided another home in Kalisari, a village in the Demak Baru subdistrict, on Saturday where a further 11 kilograms of the drug were seized after being discovered in a water pump engine.

BNN law enforcement deputy Insp. Gen. Arman Depari said the drugs were identified as top quality crystal methamphetamine and believed to be delivered from Malaysia.

“We have not found out whether the drugs were produced in Malaysia or other country as the investigation is still on going,” Depari said in Demak, as reported by state run Antara news agency.

BNN also arrested four other suspects, identified as WJ of Pati, Central Java, WD from Rembang in Central Java, TT from Karawang in West Java and YS from Jakarta.
