'Clearly stupid': Florida school shooting survivors forced to carry clear backpacks

04 Апреля 2018

Students are now required to carry clear backpacks following the horrific February 14 mass shooting which left 17 people dead.

Students at the school will also be mandated to wear identification badges while in school, according to a letter sent to families last month by Superintendent Robert Runcie.

Junior Kai Koerber told CNN: 'It's hard, we all now have to learn how to deal with not only the loss of our friends, but now our right to privacy. "It feels like jail, being checked every time we go to school". She says that's what would make her and her peers feel safer, something she knows adults are trying to do. "I understand why they are doing it, but if a person wants to bring a gun on campus, they just aren't going to put it in their backpack".

However, the new clear backpacks got most of the heat on social media.

"We come to school to learn, so I don't think that we should need to subject ourselves to these measures".

A new policy specifically for the site of the tragedy mandates, among other measures, that all students be provided with a transparent school bag, the only backpacks now allowed on the campus.

Junior Cameron Kasky tweeted a photo of his clear backpack full of tampons Tuesday as a comment on the measure.

Following the deaths of 17 people after 19-year-old gunman Nikolas Cruz entered the school and opened fire, hundreds of thousands have been protesting for tighter gun controls. "Bigger things to worry about", Twitter user Shae wrote.

Safety expert and former police officer Michael Dorn said clear backpacks were not an effective method in preventing school shootings.

"I don't think that it does anything", Jack said. We only saw a couple of regular backpacks this morning.

"They [students] very typically just hide the weapon inside something in the bookbag". It's a repeatedly used method. Sports bags and musical instrument cases are being searched. We see a lot of schools or districts do it for a while, but then the clear plastic ones tear apart.

A Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student said the increased security measures her school is taking in the wake of February's mass shooting will make going back to school following spring break even more hard.

He has since thanked those students who were seen to be embracing the clear backpacks rule.
