A Teachable Moment

Teacher (to his high school class): What are your thoughts on the Virginia Tech shootings? How should we as a concerned public understand this tragic event?

Student 1: The problem is safety.

Teacher: OK. (Writes that on the board.) Anyone else?

Student 2: More police!

Teacher: (Writes that on the board) OK. Next?

Student 3: More security!

Teacher: (writes that on the board) OK. Anyone else?

Student 4: More Cameras!

After writing “More Cameras" on the board, the teacher puts a big equal sign next to everything and says, "Add that up and you get"
= Culture of Fear

When I see or read or hear,
Folks all a quaking like frightened deer.
Government spin,
Has sucked you in.
Right where they want you, a climate of fear.
