State of Alabama changed the law in 2010 added native Americans to law. You can not move a burial site.

signed into law in 2010, makes it a crime to willingly desecrate, deface, destroy or remove a tomb or remove or damage human remains. The Alabama Historical Commission can, however, issue a permit that would allow a company or organization to remove and relocate human remains.
I don't see this yapping because there are other sites where the school can be belt

The BOE favored the Weatherly site at the meeting. There are other sites but power lines and flooding issues put those on the back burner. I was surprised that they are only planning for an additional 300 student capacity over present capacity while that area of town continues to push south with new subdivisions.

And what were you saying on posts 42 &43 ? It can be done if the BOE wants it there.

I suppose no officer would have noticed this happening? I have never seen any officer in any of the schools I went to or any I have been to that just stand in the middle of a crowed hall or room and let their guard down. You seem to regard them like useless idiots. I find them very useful as a law abider and if a problem should arise, I believe they would be very helpful in a resolution to the situation.

Alabama state law allows school administration to be trained and armed. Adding law enforcement provides an on-site determent to foreign or domestic terrorist, deranged citizen, drug disbursement, or emotionally disturbed student. Adding use of non-lethal weapons to fingerprint access locked containers for teachers to support defending students, would be a backup support for Security Officer(s). Mace or pepper spray can disable or stop intruders. Rubber bullets added where practical would also strengthen deferments. Other states should move legislation to authorize Education boards to defend schools and stop unlawful means for citizen to defend themselves.

And all it would take is for a student not involved to get injured or killed by a teacher. Grieving families and gallons of crocodile tears in the courtroom and the juries would award MILLIONS. Liability coverage for the schools systems to allow teachers to pack heat will be EXPENSIVE!!!!.

Wow, going to an armed camp for school. What a relaxing enviroment! Maybe a school uniform program with bullet proof vests would be appropriate just in case of crossfire.

Yes ,it would be the only way to be absolutely sure no one could enter the campus. However people really don't want that armed camp enviroment for the kids. Having a single armed policeman without perimeter control will make the parents feel better,not really make the kids safer. I would not want to be in the policeman's shoes if the situation ever came up where he had to make the decision to return fire in a hall crowded with students while a perpetrator was taking aim at him. Concrete floors,concrete walls, and ricocheting bullets will only escalate the danger.

If armed guards give you a warm and fuzzy feeling inside, them maybe someday you will see armed McDonalds guards,Walmart guards,First Baptist guards,Grumpy's guards, L' Rancho guards,Sonic guards,Roller Knights guards,and one everywhere you go to. If it makes you FEEL safer, then go for it.

Thom, armed guards are going to be at every Arab city school. They are already there. Marshall county will add 25.00 per car tag and the extra money will go to add extra armed guards to county schools. Thing of the times.

That was a suggestion to add the $25.00. Before it's passed the general public needs proof that there is a concrete plan to make the schools safer from a possible situation ,otherwise,they would be throwing good money after bad.

Their thinking is only to make the public "feel" safer,not really make them any safer.
