It is sooooooo sad that the LBUSD has decided that savings over safety is an effective way to help the budget. Schools such as Hamilton, Franklin,Jefferson and Lindbergh need their campus security officers. As Mr. Lilly stated the security on these campuses are integral part of the daily operations of the school. They don't just patrol the school. Not only do they provide safety for the students and staff it also extends to the community!All of the schools listed have problems with drugs, alcohol, fighting and gangs. Who are the one's working to curtail these problems daily Campus Security officers.campus security Officers work as counselors, mentors, surrogate parents, and therapist on campus. if you are familiar with Franklin Middle school then you are familiar with Ms.Hall. Both staff and students felt safe with Ms. Hall on campus.

Smart move. Don't cut the hoardes of absolutely USELESS administrative staff but do cut SECURITY for our kids.

Only a sick twisted left wing lunatic asylum like Long Beach would fall for this Union extortion crap.

Until high paid agenda driven Government judges departed from the Constitution to issue their infamous "Brown" dictate, there was no need to expend hard earned taxpayer money to pay for the stationing of cops in theretofore peaceful taxpayer funded Government schools.

It might amaze you to know that not so long ago, security officers weren't a requirement for middle-schools. It became a requirement when Long Beach became a sanctuary city, and the blacks and hispanics began picking fights with one another, and hispanic gang culture exploded upon our public school system.

There's a reason we have immigration laws. The reasons are now being played out all over southern california. Turns out allowing the lowest common denominator from any country results in social disruption, increased crime, and the costs of mitigating this imported crime wave. Also turns out, our taxes aren't near enough to deal with the social administration of illegal immigrants and their anchor babies. It's been noted that illegals now cost the state over $5 billion dollars a year for unpaid social services. It's also been noted that illegals cost the federal government over $5 billion a year in stolen revenue from the IRS. They claim dependents in Mexico they don't have, and collect the benefits. Obama has instructed the IRS to not pursue these tax cheats, so the taxpayers foot the bill. Yet you, and people like you, stood by and said nothing.

So... tough sh*t, lady. You made your bed by remaining silent the last 20 years, while the illegal alien hordes converged across southern california, their poverty-stricken vaginas spewing 3.5 anchor babies apiece. Now you and your kids can lie in it.

You had your chance. You had your "dream act."

The dream is over.

I sure as hell wouldn't teach at one of those schools without proper security, unless I was allowed to be armed.
Franklin is a madhouse.
