    Default The World Has Lost Its F&*$ing Mind!

    Every time I think we can't get dumber as a species, someone proves me wrong:

    School asks cop to lose the uniform when dropping off his daughter


    Apparently they've never heard of the Officer Friendly program in Arizona. When Scott Urkov got a call from officials at Entz Elementary School in Mesa, it wasn't to summon him for a meeting with his daughter's teacher. It was to ask the officer on the Coolidge police force if he'd please wear civilian clothes when dropping her off in the morning, as some parents were alarmed their children had come home talking about a gun-packing cop. Urkov has clammed up since a steaming Facebook post, the school has issued one of those we're-sorry-he-took-the-discussion-the-wrong-way non-apologies, and some parents can't understand the fuss. "Even if my kids saw that, I think they'd feel more protected to see a man in uniform at their school," said Blaine Spencer.


    My suggestion, how about he not wear his gun when he responds to your 9-1-1 call instead? Fucking morons.

    You guys have f-ing lost it. It's a cop. A cop that kids should be taught to go to as someone who can protect them in times of trouble. Not someone to be feared.

    What's disturbing most of all is that these bonehead moves are being committed by the people that we are trusting to educate our children. Why isn't the vetting process a little more concentrated?

    The sad thing is I could see this shit happening....Only a matter of time in this "progressive society" we live in. It's just such crap.
    I mean has the anti gun lobby really gotten that stupid to include cops?
    I've said it before...I like to shoot, and have been doing it since I was 12 when I got my first .22. I'm no gun nut, meaning my life does not revolve around them, and I don't have this concept of "defending my life against a tyranical government", but I've always enjoyed it and as long as a person is mentally sound, and has a healthy respect for firearms, then I have no issue.
    That's the way it should be...So now these folks are targeting cops? The very people that kids should feel safe around? Lol. That's just laughable. Our school always had armed liaison officers throughout high school in the eighties, and no one thought twice about it. To me, it's part of the uniform, and the responsibility period.
    I know there are shit cops out there just like in any profession, but I just don't see where they get off with this.

    I would assume that it is a very well to do neighborhood.

    Some schools have cops in them all day long if they are needed.

    i just don't understand so many things in this story. What child is freaked out by seeing a police officer? (and if they are maybe we should change that kids homelife) And what parent has the balls to call the school and to ask a police offer, a f-ing cop, to not wear his uniform when dropping his child off? I'm guessing they're going to work afterwards, how can a school demand what clothes are worn by the person dropping the kid off? They're treating the cop like he's a gang banger dropping off his kid while holding a gun (like a gang banger ever brings his kids to school).

    One of my neighbours is a cop, I'm just trying to imagine any of the other parents saying "hey, can you make sure you don't wear your uniform when you come outside? it's scaring my son". Nope, can't imagine the words being spoken.

    We're pretty stupid up here at times, but every time i think we've lost our marbles i read a story like this and realize we have a long way to go.

    Maybe if more children were introduced to and taught to respect officers in uniform, maybe they'd respect them more when they are older. Just a thought.

    Well in our schools, they were in all day long. They also perfomed a bit of a counceling service dealing with troubled kids several days a week. One year, we had two gang related shootings fairly close together. (neither resulting in a fatality) One attack was in a gym class, and the other on the outside property just as kids were getting out for the day. So a cop on campus was a welcome sight because we never knew if it was going to happen again. It was a pretty tough school, but when I moved and switched schools to a far more "upscale" community, there were still uniformed, armed liaisons there.
    I have heard in recent years that they have been removing cops from some schools, but I was under the impression it was merely budgetary. Sad to think this way of thinking may have been part of those decisions too.
