Okay, this article tells about the training they did. But one statement stood out to me.
Police take to Lloyd Cinemas for training - Koinlocal6.com

At theaters, in malls and in schools, law enforcement can be the last stand against a shooter. In Portland Tuesday the Portland Police Bureau trained to meet the threat.

"These are not like any other shooting calls," said Portland Police Spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson. "You have a shooter with unrestricted access to victims."
DUH! So, why don't you associate that with getting rid of "gun free zones?" Sheesh!

"The man who helped New York City police wrestle to the ground a knife-wielding man accused of stabbing three people to death in February, announced he will sue the city and police, claiming that officers initially left him to fend for himself with the suspect.

New evidence shows two police officers who were aboard the subway car where the attack occurred locked themselves into the safe confines of the conductor's cabin because they thought the suspect, Maxsim Gelman, was reaching for a gun as he approached Joseph Lozito, Edmond Chakmakian, Lozito's attorney, said.

Shortly after the Feb. 12 attack, a grand jury member told Lozito that jurors were appalled when they heard a police officer's version of the story, Chakmakian said.

"The juror said cops locked themselves inside because they thought Gelman was going to pull out a gun," Chakmakian said. "What were the police officers waiting for, an engraved invitation?"

How many active shooter situations have police resolved (as in taking out the threat before he's done shooting innocents)?

At theaters, in malls and in schools, law enforcement can be the last stand against a shooter. In Portland Tuesday the Portland Police Bureau trained to meet the threat.

"These are not like any other shooting calls," said Portland Police Spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson. "You have a shooter with unrestricted access to victims."
Well this "training excercise" sounds like an anticipated "shooter" with an unrestricted supply of law enforcement folks standing ready.
Bravo. I hope the cops were equipped with chalk since thats all they have time for unless there is actually an active shooter while they are there...and they are carrying live ammo...

City says cops had no duty to protect subway hero Joseph Lozito who subdued killer Maksim Gelman and was stabbed seven times in process - NYPOST.com


"City says cops had no duty to protect subway hero who subdued killer

He says he put his life on the line to stop a killer — and claims cops sat back and watched.

But city lawyers are arguing that the police had no legal duty to protect Joseph Lozito, the Long Island dad stabbed seven times trying to subdue madman Maksim Gelman — a courtroom maneuver the subway hero calls "disgraceful."

A judge is currently deciding whether Lozito, who sued the city last year for failing to prevent the attack, will get his day in court. "


"The city routinely settles such litigation but is playing hardball with Lozito, insisting his demand for unspecified money damages be tossed because the police had no "special duty" to protect him or any individual on the train that day.

"Under well-established law, the police are not liable for such incidents," said city lawyer David Santoro. "That doesn't detract from the Police Department's public safety mission -- or the fact that New York is the safest big city in America."

Experts say it's a long-standing legal precedent requiring police to put the public safety of all ahead of any one individual's rights."
