Instructors are civilians from Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire, and misc. retail stores, and some are retired cops...
That aside, was he the teacher that previously organized some sort of event that got on the national news? (positive news that is).
All I can remember from that news broadcast was them throwing grenades that were just packets of powder that exploded (powder went everywhere) when they landed. And lots of kids being involved because it was a school event/class event.
