EXAMPLE OF QUESTION ALONG WITH EXPLANTION:
The middle school principal summons you to the school grounds to deal with a fight between two boys. When you arrive there is a large gathering of students. A teacher is lying on the ground appearing to be injured. As you move closer, you notice that the teacher has been stabbed and is bleeding. You immediately call for an ambulance and proceed toward the teacher. He tells you that someone stabbed him while he was trying to break up the fight. A knife is nowhere in sight. He can’t tell you who it was. Suddenly several boys step forward and tell you that it was Tom P. and John H. who are standing at the rear of the crowd. What should your next action be under these circumstances?

a. call immediately for backup assistance

b. shout out loud the names of Tom P. and John H. telling them to stop in their tracks

c. move directly through the crowd toward Tom P. and John H. so that you can speak with them about what has just happened

d. tell anyone near the two boys to detain and hold on to them until you can reach their location

The correct answer is (a) The teacher has been injured and medical support is on the way. Additional assistance is needed to address the situation. There is a large gathering of students and it appears that the perpetrators may be in the crowd. (b) creates a situation that can escalate and involve other people in the crowd. What happens if the two boys refuse to stop? The boys may still have the knife in question. (c.) would be the second best action to take under these circumstances, once additional assistance has been requested. People in the crowd can identify the two boys. Their identity is not an issue, especially if they flee. (d) involves other people in the crowd and places them in danger of being injured if they were to get involved in any physical restraint.
