Emergency Responders Conduct Active-Shooter Drill In Lower Manhattan Subway Station.

The NYPD conducted an active-shooter terror drill inside a closed subway in lower Manhattan Sunday in the wake of the Paris and Mali terrorist attacks. “They didn’t have a good day,” Chief James Waters of the NYPD counterterrorism unit told reporters regarding the actors playing the shooters in both scenarios.NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Hundreds of emergency responders converged on a lower Manhattan subway station Sunday morning — but it was only part of a test.

But he reiterated what Bratton and other city officials have said since the Paris attacks – no specific threats vowing similar carnage against NY City exist and people should go on with their lives. Several actors covered in fake blood were dragged out of the station onto the street in yellow sleds by the FDNY. “We did very well, I think, this morning,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said after the drill. “There were casualties but the idea is to get in and minimize to the greatest degree possible the casualties.” During the simulated shooting, officers used new equipment, including GoPro-like cameras attached to their uniforms and sound monitors. The drill has been planned for a few time but got a last-minute update after the deadly Paris attacks: Officials added an attacker wearing a suicide vest.

The feeds were sent to other first responders to help them organize their response. “This was an impressive display of the capacity of this city to respond to an incident,” de Blasio said. “This is why this city is so fundamentally prepared for any situation.” Johnson said that while homeland security doesn’t know of any “specific credible threat of a Paris-like attack against the U.S. Outside the station, cops with black helmets and heavy-duty vests could be seen with K-9 units, and there were police and fire vehicles lining the streets, WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reported. But so far, since September 11, 2001, nothing quite as bad as the massacre in Paris on Nov. 13, 2015 or the threatening situation that is happening today in Brussels—which is locked down with a top (four) security alert that has smothered commerce, tourism, transportation and cause fear and loathing in those who live there or are visiting. Eturbonews posted a piece today, Nov. 22, that really drives home the ominous atmosphere now plaguing the planet writing that, “The world is on edge. Even Bratton took a ride, sending a message to the public about the city’s security. “I actually don’t have second thoughts,” said Sara Al Mouswai, of Boston. “I’m continuing living my life.

There are airline emergency landings, suspicious packages, bomb threats, stabbings and major world cities like Brussels and Paris shut down.,” and citing some serious situations recorded in the last 8 hours: In the United States–Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis issues alert for ‘dangerous situation’ near Eskenazi Hospital. Terrorism happens all around the world, and you just have to be cautious and on the lookout.” The city will be especially cautious during this week’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, where millions will line the streets of Manhattan.

In Jordan–King Abdullah of Jordan will discuss on Tuesday fight against Islamic State Militants in Syria and political process in Syria with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In Israel—An Israeli woman stabbed in West Bank dies of wounds and security forces stop stabbing attack on an Israeli near Ariel in the West Bank; attacker shot USA/Canada/Turkey–a Turkish Airlines aircraft TK2 from New York to Istanbul made an emergency landing in Halifax, Canada due to a bomb scare.

It won’t be easy for some, especially those who have lost love ones in any of the recent shootings, massacres, and crime sprees infecting the world.
