Waste of money. Cops have to use the bathroom. They get called out on backup. You know there's a cop there? Just plow into a few cars right out front, slump over the wheel, when he comes out to investigate ... no more cop, school's open. Waste of money, just a feel-good non-remedy. There was a sheriff's deputy at Columbine, remember.

From the looks of the police blotter recently he/she should take his/her shiny tin badge and head out to Youngsville.

Not a POLICE officer, mind you. They are talking about a rent-a-cop who can't qualify to be a real police officer. That's exactly what we DON'T need in our schools "protecting" the kids. The only way I would support guns in schools is the installation of mini police stations in each school staffed by trained, professional, sworn law officers. But that will cost money no one wants to pay. An amateur with a tin badge and a gun in a school is gas on a fire.

I grew up in Warren. I now live in a small community about the size of Warren, maybe a little smaller. Our highschool has a school resource officer, who is a police officer and is armed. It is actually a very good thing and acts as a deterrent for many of the problems that can happen in high school. From fights to bomb threats etc. Unfortunately, at this day in age we need to have that protection in our schools. I'd rather see a trained officer in the school than arming our teachers with guns.

Unfortunately this is the reality of the crazy world we live in; and therefore, I support this decision for EVERY school in the district. The safety of our children and educators needs to be of utmost priority, regardless of cost.

It would be cheaper and more of a deterrent if they would permit teachers to carry. Then no one would would know who or if anyone was armed.
