Vivian Lew UCLA Teacher ordered students to ignore lockdown and take exams

Vivian Lew a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles asked her students to leave cover during a lockdown Wednesday and expose themselves to an active shooter situation in order to complete a final exam.

“This is what I will do, you can take the exam anywhere today, not in Boelter,” Professor Vivian Lew wrote to her students in an email obtained by Campus Reform. “Unfortunately, you need to take it between 11-11:50 Section 1A and 1 pm-1:50pm Section 1B.”

Meanwhile, thousands of terrified UCLA students were forced to take shelter in buildings while local authorities searched the campus for an active shooter, putting the school on lockdown for over two hours and prompting a massive police response.

Professor Lew even informed her students that she could not make it to the exam herself because her building was on lockdown.

“I am locked in my office now and cannot leave[;] my building is under lockdown,” she wrote.

Nonetheless, Lew encouraged her students to leave safety so that they could find a computer to complete their exams remotely.

“So leave this area if you are in [it] and find a computer. If you cannot take it at 11 am, I can reschedule you for 1 pm,” she ordered.
Lew later admitted she regrets her first email and says she had not been aware of the full situation when she sent it. She had heard there was little more than a rumor of ‘police activity’.

She also claimed she ‘wasn’t aware at the time that some buildings had been locked down’, although she does refer to being ‘locked down’ in her office in the first communication.

‘I am thinking it was a “teachable moment” for me,’ she told Campus Reform. ‘I’ve never encountered a situation like this before, I don’t recall receiving any training about a shooter or a lockdown when we are not inside a classroom and I didn’t have good information about the severity of the situation.

The unnamed teen will never be the same after what went on just feet from where other people were, which also speaks to a deeply disgusting issue at that school and in the community. Out of all the boys involved, so far, only a couple are facing disciplinary action, thanks to them thinking it was funny to show the entire school what took place behind a private bathroom stall, which nobody bothered to stop.

How it got to this point for the girl had to begin at home, since she was desperate enough for attention that she prostituted herself out for free to much of the high school football team and any others who wanted in on her. The teen is seen on school surveillance entering the bathroom alone, before at least 25 boys came in behind her, one-by-one, for free sex with the girl.
