    Default WHITE HOUSE CONSIDERS FUNDING FOR COPS IN SCHOOLS

    In what seems like a surprise move, the White House working group on gun control is considering expanding federal funding for cops in schools.

    It was the NRA's Wayne LaPierre who, a week after the shooting in Newtown, recommended placing armed police officers in every school in America. The idea was ridiculed by the left but has been embraced by the school superintendent in Newtown at the behest of many parents. There are currently two officers present at each of the six schools in the Newtown district.

    The White House has found that even many Democrats support the idea of cops in schools. Senator Barbara Boxer told the Post, "If a school district wants to have a community policing presence, I think it’s very important they have it." Ninety percent of large, urban high schools already have SROs on duty; however, the majority of schools, especially at the elementary level, have no security at all.

    President Bill Clinton initiated a program which offered federal funding to offset the costs of hiring school resource officers, but the money was cut over the last five years. Even if the White House does embrace the new plan, it will not be as extensive as the NRA recommendation. Effectively, the administration would be restoring funding to a program that had fallen out of favor.

    The White House has been signaling for weeks that it planned to make a major push on gun control in the wake of the Newtown shooting last month. Most analysts have expected the effort, headed by Vice President Joe Biden, to focused on banning so-called assault rifles and large-capacity magazines, priorities favored by gun control advocates.

    The move to consider cops in schools may be the closest thing to a compromise the White House will offer. At the very least, it should put an end to the snickers coming from the President's progressive allies who ridiculed the NRA recommendation. It seems the White House now believes—like the parents of Newtown, CT—that armed cops are part of the solution to gun violence.

    Schools in 10 years:

    -Cops all over the place
    -School Uniforms
    -The kids will have chips to make sure that they aren't up to no good
    -And of course the really bad food
    -School all year around

    All this will surely help the graduation rate and decrease the number of dropouts.

    I feel bad for the kids going to school in the future.

    This country is just getting more and more fascist.

    The idea is to keep kids from being slaughtered in their own classrooms.

    I guess I'm having trouble seeing why this is a bad thing and if it is, what is the preferred option?

    We used to have a cop in the school. I mentioned this another thread. I think they are great to have. They're not just security, they also help with tornado/fire drill safety, discussions with kids who may be having issues at home, etc. It's unfortunate that almost all of them were cut because of funding. I'd rather the state stop giving us bullshit tests that mean nothing to our education, and instead support teachers and provide the schools with SROs.

    We had a school cop before I moved out of Chicago. Nicest guy ever, too. We loved his presence and always said hi to him. When we were younger he would goof around with us. Just delightful.

    When I switched schools the cop was a dick, but he went into politics shortly after I graduated. Shocking move

    Regardless, I always felt safer having the cop there. I'm also failing to see why this is a bad thing.

    We've had armed security or police in the country's schools for some time now. The NRA proposed a program to expand this and of course the left has to call it stupid. Meanwhile, states that have been doing this are scratching their heads. NYC has had them since forever so it was confusing to watch liberal politicians from there be so against it. In Florida, Palm Beach and Broward County school Districts have had their own police depts for some time now.

    What a fucking ignorant thing to say. Are there some bad apples in law enforcement? sure, what profession DOESN'T have some.

    There are thousands police officers out there giving their lives to protect and save the lives of ungrateful people like you EVERY DAY and the thanks they get are dickheads saying "Cops are fuck ups" NICE. I'd never want to do their job and I am thankful every time I see a police officer (maybe not so much when the lights are flashing behind me, but if that happens I only have myself to blame)

    Good thing you are THE BEST IN ALL OF THE WORLD at whatever you do for a living and that gives you the confidence to knock everyone else down practically EVERY time you post. I suppose you have a better plan since the cops are fuck ups and you know everything, let's hear it.




    Getting back to the subject, people want safety in schools, they don't want their guns taken away, this sounds like the only reasonable middle ground right now that can be put in place quickly, I don't see a problem.

    Personally, I'd rather have a trained professional with a gun rather than a teacher being armed in the school.

    This is worthy of my tax money.....way more worthy than a ton of the other bullshit they spend it on.

    I do think the bulk of the funds should be found on a local level, as I don't trust the Feds to administer ANYTHING without fucking up the works with red tape and robbing the till for other pet projects, but if some districts require some federal supplement to make it a viable idea, so be it.

    It's done nothing for our district. Schools only need the basic dress codes so you don't have thugs walking around with ten foot long shirts and pants that hang at their knees.
