Emma Jaworski : Meanwhile my school has all the classroom walls and doors made of glass so we can "have more natural light"

Lorenozone : I’m just annoyed that their security cameras are misplaced/randomly placed...

F Huber : And they never report crimes to the police. Because if they reported the crimes they would lose their "safest school" rating.

Kevin Borge : This is what the U.S. has become...lovely.

Spook Y : Y not bullet resistant text books?

CJ : Well this is over the top. a) Many shooters are students themselves, so it's not like the cameras would give early detection b) Hallways are empty in this reporting video, but they're jam-packed during a normal school day. Plenty of targets still. c) Because shooters can blend in, now an entire class is stuck with a shooter in a room police can't access because the door is fortified and bulletproof. d) That seems like normal smoke, with the goal being to obscure the kids. But the problem is that shooters are there to shoot indiscriminately. Just because they can't see the kids doesn't mean they're safe. e) Windows are a thing f) This is $400,000 per school lol. We can't even afford to give them markers.

chgarciaro : Ooor you control a bit better who is allowed to have a gun.

DromasGamerHD : Man I wish my school was like that having bullet proof doors, hot zones, and everything.

hy : Great tell them every single one of your precautions

Justin Hensley : Now watch this school be the next to get shot up because they make a video calling it the "safest". Way to challenge the criminals.

Esbern : "Scary new world*" *applies only inside the borders of the united states of america

Lyric : Shoot if their was an apocalypse going on they are prepared lol

caitlin asuncion : ya girl is moving to Indiana bye

Ben Fitz : what happens when school is out and the kids leave the school...what prevents somebody from running them down in an suv

Sabine Engle : Anybody aware that there's money in selling the security equipment? Whoever sells this has a REAL interest in keeping guns being sold.

MagnificentXXBastard : HAHAHAHA Americans. This is so unreal to the rest of the world.

Ava Warkentin : Better than arming the teachers with guns

Matthew W. : Actually amazing how just a few days ago a school had a gunman on campus in Indiana

mason : My school: *School shooter comes* Pretty much everyone: *Arms themselves with sharpened pencils and staplers*

Movie lover 123 : The schools "secret" weapon Tells it on *national* tv.....not so secret anymore

Cameron Ryan : Bullet resistant does not mean bullet proof

AmandaIsNotAPanda : That's not a school anymore. The security in this place looks prison. It makes sense to put security measures in place, but should we not be preventing shootings instead of arming ourselves for when they attack?

Thanos Fake Default : *Says safest school in the world with a "high tech security system"* *Doesn't even have 1 security guard* -_-

Joe T : 400k that could go towards teacher pay! Unfortunately we have to do this.......

That1Guy : To all the people who think this is a good idea and want it implemented more, don't ever complain when they increase your taxes to pay for this!

victoria : In America, our schools have now become actual insane asylums!

Wade Knox : This is ridiculous. Easiest thing to do would be to just get rid of the guns. I'm a gun owner and would gladly give my guns. The whole point to the 2nd Amendment was so State militias and the people of those states could protect themselves from a tyrannical Federal government. That purpose has faded. Do you think your guns stand a chance against the government? It would be like shooting bb's at an oncoming train.

Gehrog : Imagine trying to juul ...

Mike Borisov : I’ve calculated 90,000 public schools times 400,000 that is 36 billions dollars yes a lot but while we are at it we can give schools supplies and technology just a little from the defense budget and boom millions of people are safe or I don’t know STOP GIVING PEOPLE BUMP STOCKS Edit: OMG this is the most attention I’ve ever had on my comments on YouTube. Anyways bump stocks a big no no ,but if people are tested monthly or gradually like they do in countries like Spain I’m honestly firm with Semi Automatic Rifles ,BUT not the fact that a person can’t drink or smoke at the age of 18 ,but they can buy a gun that is completely absurd. Plus there isn’t one problems it is multiple problems like having better program for having police or security guards neutralize a target or targets with minimal to no deaths or injuries of others.

Shanz : "Schools secret weapon" that they just revealed to the whole world lmao... Good job, you guys just revealed all of your security measures to everyone, now people will figure out ways to get past them. And may I just point out that spending 400,000 on security that may not even work, that money should go towards creating strong anti-bullying and mental health programmes at schools. Rather than preventing the problem WHEN it happens, prevent it from its core.

Juan Obando : That's what I'm talking about. Extreme measures like this one need to be taken in order to prevent another tragedy from happening.

geo745don : Still waiting for camera videos of supposedly school shooting

Jayla Funk : This is what we should be doing to protect our schools. Not adding more guns to the situation by "Giving Teachers Guns"

stanly ramos : Last time someone told me "well be safe here" those were the last words he ever said to me

Fleur Hufflepuff : Instead of spending all of this money, they could just ban guns...

Lolzes : Real life school prison

Marc1142 8 : Or, give a kid a hug. Just as affective. You folks are gone.

Andrew : wtf they hold books in front of their faces... as if that's going to help someone who has a gun??

Awesomeness Productions : Couldn't they see the flipped over desks and the fact that there is a classroom with backpacks and such with no kids, wouldn't it then be obvious they are in the corner?

Delta747Fan Boeing : Why aren’t all schools like this? Oh wait because they are poor.

Kevin Howard : What happens to a crazed lunatic that blows through the locked door? do you think that red line will save them? Most school books that are in Philadelphia Schools say that Reagan is president, yet this school can afford a multi-million dollar high tech security set up? Why don't you send some of that money to schools that really need it.

Elijah Zola : TF is a "hot zone" gonna do??! It blinds everyone not just the shooter

flu dog : Beside not teaching your kids anything here another reason for HOME SCHOOLING Why would you want to send your kids to this school?

Varekai Ascendant : It used to be that a school was a place to go to learn your ABC's and 123 but now they are turned into Prisons for kids and they are taught that we live in war zones.. We have succeeded into teaching our children that the 'outside' is a dangerous place rather something to explore in wander. If you go back in time you will clearly see that that danger began with the changes in gun legislation that allowed the sale of rapid fire weapons. Yes there were the occasional shootings but not like the ones we saw in Las Vegas and in Florida and beyond. Why would anyone NEED a rifle like this for home use? If you truly love your children you will act to see that these weapons are severely restricted.

Panda Bear : They need to do this in every school!

MISAO : And Trump couldn't think of a more creative method to safeguard schools, other than arming teachers with guns.

Totam Cat : Lmao our teachers have guns if someone attempted a school shooting they would die before getting to the main hallway

I got the tea! U thirsty? : It's honestly sad how needed this is..

Charlie Westbrook : 0:21 LOL the video says "safe" but that computer's running windows xp

Autumn : My school doesn't even do lock down drills anymore 🙃🙃
