In light of the latest tragedy with the CT school shooting, I am wondering if our local law enforcement or school district is going to consider putting a resource officer in every school? This is such a tragedy, and although I would like to think we live in a community where this sort of thing would not happen, I firmly believe in the motto "better safe, than sorry". Anybody else agree with me on this?

Stover school district had to cut teachers and programs due to the tax levy failing. How do you expect them to hire any safety officers?

Better yet, instead of relying on the cops and the government, rely on yourselves. You people that think junior is safe and you can shrug your parental responsibilities for the day, need to reexamine your priorities.

Take responsibility for your kids and home school...

Wow! Really? So it is wrong of us to utilize a government and educational system that we contribute to, and helped to build? That is "shrugging off parental responsibility"? I have no problem with homeschooling, and I am certainly all for mothers staying home to raise their children. I will not for one minute speak badly of people who send their child to public, private, christian schools, etc. We all, as parents, try to do the best we can for our children. Regardless of our circumstances our children deserve to be safe and protected. I couldn't agree more that it is MY primary responsibility to protect and care for my children, but I also do expect my government, law enforcement, as well as fellow community members to help to protect my children in any way they can...because my family and I would do the same for them. What happened to this world where all people can do is criticize everyone else? Why can we not see past it all and treat each other like human beings? No child deserves to be shot down while learning how to tie their shoes, or sing their ABC's. No parent should ever have to entertain the idea of that horrendous possibility. Unfortunately we live in a world where these terrible things are happening. If we can't afford to put another officer in our schools, which I don't believe is the case, then ask parents who do care if they want to take shifts patrolling the schools. I know I would absolutely donate my time to keep my children, as well as everyone else's safe. I think it is very unfair of you, Brian, to get on here and toss out these unfair judgements in a time of mourning for the entire nation. I hope you can look inside yourself and see that is not what anybody needs. We all need to work together to make this world a better place for our children, regardless of where or how they receive their educations.

It is no secret that we are living in a world where people have their priorities in a bit of a mess. Our youth IS our future. Yet so many people are neglecting them, hurting them, and worse as we saw today. There is always a way, and I think every person in the community would agree that our children's safety is a top priority. I may not have the perfect answer of how they should hire safety officers, but I can say that anything is possible when people work together like they should.

Yes we do need more safty, especially at ballgames. Did anyone else see the poor coach at the volleyball game getting harrassed by Mr. Edgar for pulling out his daughter. Poking her and yelling. Figures that pu$$ wold do that to a girl, but he would run run as fast as he could from a man,

Just what the thread needs, some overly opinionated people who can't see past their own noses. You are worried about harassment at a ball game rather than the 20+people who were senselessly killed today. Nice. Lets call people fat and worry about who is taken out of a game and who is mad about it. What is wrong with people???

Safety aside, all public and private schools are indoctrination centers inluding Christian ones, because most of what the bible teaches is no longer considered "politically correct" or "right" so you end up with a watered down politically correct enterpretation of all things Christian. The same thing has happened to the sermons on Sunday.

If you have children in school I guarantee you they are being force fed views that you personally don't agree with, both by the teachers and their peers because of political correctness. Your children are being forced to be around children that have been morally and behaviorally corrupt since before they ever entered elementary school. Bad parents raise bad and dangerous children that are prone to violence and perversion.

You wouldn't allow your children to be around the bad kids outside of school so why allow them to be around them at school?

Being unable to afford a parent staying home to homeschool is the only excuse, otherwise you are needlessly putting your children into harms way.

While I agree with you on the "name callin" I will have to disagree on the rest. A grown man should not Bully a young lady who is doing her job. I wasn't there but my friend said he indeed was out of control. This is where alot of these school violence episodes get started from BULLIEING. When it comes to school saftey nothing should be overlooked, no parents should be alowed to disrespect a teacher or administrater. I don't think Mr. Edgar is above reproach and I can imagine that PBS broadcasting system would agree.

I don't know about the volleyball incident but that wouldn't be the first parent I've seen do that. If your going to point him out on it there are many others that could be pointed out too.
