Thumbs down because the students were injured, prayers and best wishes for a full recovery to them. Two thumbs up for the outstanding bravery shown by the teacher and the bus drivers in taking this sociopath down before he shot more students. I hope that these good citizens will be recognized for their swift actions in the face of danger.
One has to wonder, given the shootings that have occured in the schools in this area, why there was no SRO stationed at this school ?????????
That makes 2 school shootings within a day apart....This is getting way out of hand, I feel there needs to be something done with security measures that are currently in place at these schools. I dont care about metal detectors and all that non sense. There either needs to be a full time armed security force, or local police that are assigned to that post every day. There has to be something that can be done to were our children and teachers are not "Sheep huddled in a pen" with no way of protection. Me personally, I am for teachers with CCW. That may be a hot button with some folks, but as for myself, I have a CCW, and can barely step on school property with my weapon. As the law abiding citizen I am, I obey the law, so when I am at wrestling tournaments for my son, or after hours activities, I along with everyone else in that building, are a un-armed target. As for the "Security" They have at some of these functions, they are old,overweight,un armed,and probably under qualified people who would not be able to save anyone! At least thats at my area. Im not sure of other districts and how they operate. These shootings are an epidemic that is haunting our country. If the administrators and law makers are going to prohibit qualified licensed Citizens from exercising their privilage of CCW on school grounds, then they need to make sure they have the proper measures in place for our protection.Whatever that may be. Sorry for the soapbox rant, these things fire me up in the morning when they are the first thing I read.
