DHS Funds Video For Workplace Shootings


The city of Houston, Texas has spent $200,000 of a Department of Homeland Security grant on the production of a six minute video that informs individuals of what to do in the event of a workplace shooting.

The creepy video emphasizes three main actions: Run, Hide, and Fight.

The video starts out showing a regular day at work with people on the phone, sitting at their desks, and coworkers conversing with one another.  Then a voice-over actor, who is reminiscent of 1970′s movie trailers, says that sometimes life “feels more like an action movie than a reality”.

The scenes are interspersed with a man in black carrying a backpack, with statistics from workplace shootings appearing on screen as he walks.  This is where the cheese ends, and the video may actually leave an impression on people.

As the man in black enters the elevator area, he removes a shotgun from his bag and begins shooting people: a security guard, a defenseless woman, and others trying to run.  Albeit a dramatization, the scene could be rather disturbing to some people.

Following the awakening scene, tips and instructions are given on how to safely Run, Hide, and even Fight a potential gunman.

Nicole Stickel, a spokesperson for the DHS, told NBC’s ‘Today Show’ that the grant money came from a program funding “law enforcement and terrorism prevention activities, like training videos.”
