ARMED GUARDS IN U.S. SCHOOLS? YES OR NO?


We have to admit that we are on the fence when it comes to this question. We're thinking, Yes, our children need to be protected by any means necessary (channeling Malcolm X) however, good sense tell us No, we will be creating a 'Police State!...

"School safety is absolutely our highest priority," said Advancement Project Co-Director Judith Browne Dianis. "It's important to note that police in schools do not necessarily increase safety; nor do they catch early indicators of mental-health needs, identify root and underlying causes of violence or use the resources of law enforcement in an effective way," Browne Dianis added. "Instead of addressing infrequent, serious threats to safety, police in schools often respond to minor student misbehavior by handcuffing, arresting and criminalizing the young people they were intended to protect."  READ THE REST
