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.

It's always heartbreaking to hear the news of a child's passing, but perhaps even more so when the child was murdered at the hands of their own flesh and blood.

A 20-year-old food processing student at an agricultural college in Bukit Kayu Hitam was recently charged in the magistrate's court for drowning her newborn baby in the hostel's toilet bowl.

The Star reported that Nur Izzati Adi allegedly murdered her baby on March 30 at 5:20pm in the women's toilet located on the 3rd floor - to which she nodded as the charges were read last Monday.

As it is a murder case, the court ruled that Nur Izzati was charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code, which carries the mandatory death penalty upon conviction.

No plea was recorded, and on top of being denied bail, Nur Izzati was taken to the Pokok Sea prison.

Nur Izzati was represented by Tunku Intan Mahiya Tunku Mahamad, and prosecuted by the Deputy Public Prosecutor Parihah Ab Kadir.

However, in light that the post-mortem report has yet to be fully revealed, Magistrate Nurfadrina Zulkhairi has declared that the case will be re-mentioned in court on June 7.

The daily also highlighted that police were investigating a possible case of body dumping, but promptly turned into a murder case after the baby was confirmed to be alive prior death.

The 1st-year student was first arrested when she went to a government hospital to sought medical treatment.

After the reports were lodged to the police, her 19-year-old boyfriend, was also arrested in Jitra last week.
