Michigan’s Fruitport High School is undergoing a $48 million redesign to reduce the threat of active shooters. Hallways are curved to limit a gunman’s range, and classrooms have a “shadow zone” where students can cower out of sight of the doorway. “If I go to FPH and I want to be an active shooter,” said schools Superintendent Bob Szymoniak, “I’m going in knowing I have reduced sight lines.”
San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors has approved new “person first” language guidelines to refer to convicted felons. The guidelines call for former inmates to be called “justice-involved” persons or “returning residents.” Parolees will be known as “people under supervision.” “We don’t want people to be forever labeled for the worst things that they have done,” said Supervisor Matt Haney.
