This is wonderful.

If enough residents donate to specifically improve school saftey it's possible to provide a safe environment for the kids.

Having only one officer to cover the whole grounds even with the " buzz-in" doors will not be enough to make the school safe until a full fence with a guard gate is put in place guarding the campus and all students and staff having to enter through one door only with a metal detector. There are too many fire doors around all schools that can't be locked by fire code laws where an idiot with a gun could enter while the officer was in another part of the building. These doors can be taped and jimmied for later entrance. Band instrument cases would have to searched for weapons hidden in metal instruments. It is great that the mother is doing this but it just makes everyone FEEL secure when they really may not be.

You're idea is to lock up innocent children young adults and anyone wanting to continue an education to protect them from people that will potentially cause harm, & move around freely? This answer is because you can't think of anything that makes sense. It's harmful to even think about it !

The point is that we can't make the schools any safer by having one armed officer that can't be everywhere at once. The students will know him and his whereabouts and he can't guard all the doors at once. Having ANY guns in the schools whether they be with teachers or a single guard will be a danger if bullets start flying and then ricochet off walls. Putting the decision to shoot at a armed student with other students around him and risking killing other kids will be a tough call when the perpetrator is taking aim.

As much as [anyone Has the right to protect themselves from harm, including murder, the legal system itself is only intersted in being the center of attention. The best way to prove that in a court of law now is to prove a guilty person to be innocent. Don't think too hard, about where the money for safe schools will come from. It's still locked in the bank. Goverment owned institutions [Banks:] made life easy, for people to get loans, because of government greed, that pays for the homes that people don't have because of greed, that's supposed to used for school safety...paid for with tax dollars that people don't have anymore.

The major problem with the schools is what the so called "parents" are sending to the teachers every day and expecting them to straighten out their mess. The kids today are spoiled brats that defy authority and think they are there to be entertained rather than listen to the teachers and actually learn something along the way.The parents have caved into their demands and given them everything they want,not just need to the point where they expect to have their way at school too. 99& 99/100% of the problems in schools are how the children were raised at home.

You had trouble understanding this comment or even acknowledging what the problems mean dispite the fact that it is common english, and these problems did not exsist at one time. Istead, you blame american parents american children, young adults and american consumers. You are an anti american communist sympathizer. And an idiot!

The topic here is students and school safety. Your echoing some Rush Limbaugh type tripe isn't on that point.

You want to find an anwer to having one person guard a school, that has nothing to do with safety. The only way it would work according to you, is lock people in a prison enviroment? The stand your ground rule, is about letting people shoot each other if they can justify their actions, in a court of law. After your idea of locking innocent people in a school/prison, you don't mind if they're out there with guns, because over all children are no good because of their parents, there isn't one part of you're comment that has anything to do with safety.

Go back to post #7. Give us your plan to guard all entrances,gyms,lunchrooms,band rooms,and the whole campus and parking lot using a single guard. Many schools around the country already have placed and off duty officer in the lobby with a patrol unit out front. Do you really think a kid hell bent on an attack would be deterred by a single show of force?

The topic is a armed guard for making schools safer. Now whats your plan to cover the campus? If you don't have one, then you agree that there is no way to make them any safer than what they are.

Asking somebody what their plan is and telling them they don't have one. If you could stop being angry about how stupid you are eventually somebody will have a good laugh at your expense.
