Um... maybe the public and the government should be outraged, and maybe the public should be informed of the unabashed truth. What happened was 100% the fault of the instructors. They're the ones in charge. Of all people, Armory was the least culpable.

Which is why you don't start training them in situations that even remotely deal with life/death. You begin training them alone, with no one else around, testing their abilities and powers, then slowly build up.

Egads... at least no one even died at Xavier's from such stupidity.

I call bullshit on that. If I'm in target practice and I go bonkers and shoot some poor sap in the head, its not the fault of whatever I saw that inadvertantly freaked me out or the instructors for giving me a gun because that was the whole point of the excerise. No one in the room was expecting Armory to freak out to the extent that she did.
