Well, was it before or after the Newton massacre caused a public outcry to do SOMETHING about protecting schools, was my angle.(Before or after the SRO plan was introduced to the board, really.)

Because if the promotion took place BEFORE the shooting... then there's no way it could be related.

If it took place more recently... I can at least see why (whoever) brought it up... although I really don't think it would take a promotion to get a city cop to back a city plan. I also don't think it's suspicious to promote one of your most experienced officers, in any event.

As far as a conflict of interest goes, Ray's one member with one vote. He doesn't get to decide this on his own.

In theory, all the board members ought to be taking input from their districts.

I was being completely serious when I suggested anyone who feels strongly about it attend the meeting. That's how public governance is supposed to work.

Hijack is dead on the money. Every person should let the school board how they feel. Go to the meeting and speak your mind. Taxpayers deserve the right to speak. I don't think the board is foolish enough to start paying Lpd salaries. If they fall for that, all of them should be voted out. Mr smith needs to be told to stay out of this crusade to make money for ether edge and his crew. Ray I'm sure got promoted to carry the flag for his cronies. County police will be much more within their rights. Private security may be best of all.

Many things are collecting for the public to know. The backup is getting weak.

You guys know these board meetings are public, right?
Maybe you should show up and deliver your superior understanding of their role as a board, and the legal jurisdiction issues, personally. Tell Ray what his "conflict of interest" is while looking him right in the mustache.
What if I said I have, as well as told Ray that I know about the coverup including his daughter and the bomb threat at Hilham. Yes, they kept that hush, hush as well.

No SRO should be allowed to be a member of the board of education.

This county is corrupt.

So if something illegal happens at LA they call the sheriff instead of the city police? Please explain this because it is news to me!
All you need to do is read the law. If I understand it right, they are to call 911 or the sheriff first. The sheriff has the most power in a county. And there are no city schools in Overton county. A city school is funded by the city. Livingston does not fund any school.

the school board member from the livingston city should not even be allowed to vote. ask him about the paperwork that was taken out on him when he was getting his divorce. the then chief of police phillips called angel in and made so many threats and lies she dropped it. that does not change the fact of what he did. i am for the county doing the sro or the private company either one.the private company is the best bet because they would be there like the should all the time. even in the city the two sros are in and out of the schools all day. they never stay at the schools all day.
come on sheriff melton put your 9 sros paid by the school board in the schools. you have juristicion

Has this guy they hired at the high shool helped any student athletes to get scholarships? I have not heard of any kids that he has helped. This was a big waste of money. The coaches help who they want to help and it doesn't matter if the kid can make the grades or not. Just take a look at who Lamb is helping and look at where most of the ones are that he has chosen to help in the past. It is a shame that the kids that make the grades and can play ball can't and don't get help.

The board says they are trying to think of how to address this problem, but they will not listen to any suggestions from the public. It seams they have their minds made up to start with. They say that they don't have any money, but they have many employees that they don't need. Matt says that they just don't want anyone to loose their jobs. Well, Matt we don't want to loose our tax money either. It sounds to me like the school expects for the county to foot any safety expenses and they still get to spend as they please. Who knows for sure how much money they have hidden away. History proves that they have done that many times in the past. I say; let the court and the public see the real set of records with no cover-ups. How much more of the tax money do they want this time?

I think your right that some have there minds made up. But I was trying to watch the live stream on the enterprise website, I could see it but it wasn't real clear. But my computer is kinda old. But I know one of the board members said something about asking the teachers what they thought. Ithought that was some people that need to be heard from. And it sounded like at least some of them agreed. Nobody wants to loose there tax money. Go to the next meeting and be heard. Some guy from the crowd spoke last night.

You are right! I guess the county will have to pay for the SRO's because the school board say they don't have any extra money now. But, you know they have money for everything else ( teacher raises and bonus, bus driver raises, paraperfishenals all raises, trips to everything and everything you can think of, keeping all the aids just to keep them a job, and many more things that I can't think of just now). If you noticed, Matt Eldredge let it slip and said that they had been putting money in the bank for the last few years. And also, he said they have been keeping all the aids to keep them from loosing their jobs. Well, what about us without jobs and having to pay higher taxes to pay for the school stuff. They need to do a bunch of cuts and stop their pork barrel spending before we have to give them more money. According to the way I understood them, they intend for the county to pay for the total bill for all the SRĂ“'s in all the schools. I think it is time that we draw the line. They are getting the majority of the tax money already.
