Some of you parents are either really stupid or you have no clue as to what really finds its way into our schools. Wake up before your kids never will again.

I think if you ask kids in ANY school, they'll tell you that school feels like prison, anyhow (smile).

Officials argue they aren't all that effective.
Doing nothing is not very effective. And to the parents who say metal detectors would make school feel like prison, well that is better than a school suddenly feeling like a morgue.

This is beyond ridiculous.
At the risk of sounding like an old fogey (I'm not really that old), when I was a kid you could go to school in the suburbs (and even in the inner city) without having to pass through a metal detector and get the stink-eye from cops or security guards.
Also, I cringe every time I hear about a school being "locked down" because a kid has a water pistol or something. A "lockdown" is what happens in a maximum security prison. They are training our kids to think and act like prisoners, wards of the state.
