I'll assume you were going to say "need", and no, we do not "need" police in schools. Not in anderson county anyways.

Obviously you probably have no children in the School system "dumbass"! If you did you would not make a statement like that. Those other schools did not expect those things to happen either. What do you care? You are probably a drain on tax payers anyway! You probably don't pay taxes because you are to lazy to work! You are afraid if we spend tax money on this they might have to cut some government program you are benefiting from! We are not talking about building a new jail idiot we are talking about protecting children! By the way don't correct people's spelling and grammar errors to show us how smart you are! I am convinced you probably have an IQ of a turd after reading your post.

How does this establish a safe learning environment? Should this continue and we live in a world where everyone openly wears guns and fears the person next to them. Schools should invest in counseling, not fight fire with more fire.

First off, I said that because I was called a dumbass, by someone who forgot a word, not committed a grammatical error. Second, no...I don't have children. If I did, I still wouldn't want police in public schools. You people forget ALL THE TIME, that...shit happens. Sad shit. Sick shit. Its regrettable, it really is. What it ISNT, however is easily avoidable. You think two or three armed cops are going to stop someone from doing something like that? The answer is no. It might do damage control...maybe. There may only be one dead cop or one dead cop and a handful of dead children, but more than likely its not gonna matter. Again, these are isolated incidences and you can't just throw more bodies at it to stop them. Its comparable to 9/11. George Bush comes out and tells Americans to be frightened, and BLAM!! Hello threat-levels. Hello asshole airport security. One tragedy happens and half the population rises up and gets irrational. You wanna show u care and keep your kids safe in Clinton Tn? Take them out of the piss-poor city schools and get them a private tutor. If you want police in your schools, maybe the PTA should come together and fund it. Perfect example: I graduated in 2002 from CHS. Clinton High has had its share of violent history....what, 70 years ago? When someone bombed the mother******? Can anyone think of the next occurence of a horrendous act? Probably not, because it was an isolated incident. Anyways, after Columbine, Clinton had roughly a $20,000 grant issued to it (which Clinton doesn't get often), and guess what they did with it? Replaced tattered or highly oudated learning materials? Nope. I could go on and on about more beneficial that money coulda been spent on, but no, they spent every penny on cameras for the school and blamed it on an isolated incident. Hell the school already had a razor-wire perimeter...How many schools have had shootings since Columbine? Less than 10, right? Something like that? Out of how many schools with how many repressed, blindfolded, confused children in the nation? It happens. Its always happened, and will continue to happen. Find the root cause of the problem, don't put a band-aid a slit wrist. The overall point is this: Clinton is a near-dead city with a growing population. Funds get misapropriated here enough as it is with our corrupt city officials, and if you ask me, the only benefit gained from putting police in schools is to the police themselves, because its just another part of the dead little community that they can take charge of and micro-manage.

We didn't need police in schools 100 years ago...or 50 years ago, or 20 years ago. We don't need them now. You're letting fear, and a misguiding hand cloud your judgement, and personally, I don't want my tax dollars to be used in such a manner because of clouded judgement. Another, more impersonal, assholish way to say it is this: since I don't have children that attend shitty public schools in a messed up society, I don't really care enough about yours to give you my tax dollars to protect them. I AM a tax-payer, and maybe I feel that city tax dollars should be funneled into places where the community benefits, instead of the minority of people who have children in said schools. I also pay my outlandish cable bill, and they sensor what I watch because heaven forbid little billy down the street sees some breasts on tv because mom and dad won't do their job and control what their kid watches or at least activate the v-chip function on little billys tv. Damn blind-ass, liberal sheeple...

Ok CDV, when someone tries to break into your house or, God forbid, our schools be attacked we will first try to "counsel" them. How f#cking stupid can you be?! If someone comes into my home and tries to harm me, the only counseling they will get is with a 12 gauge shotgun. I am an American and have a right to protect myself and my family. If you don't like our constitution then get the hell out of the USA because gun ownership is a RIGHT not a privilege! The same people that fought and died for your right to speak your ignorant ideas are the same people that died for our right to keep and bear arms.

Way to go clintononia,
Tell the parents of the victims that their one child's life possibly spared (damage control as you put it) is not worth it. If armed guards could have saved even one child then it would have been worth it.

Thank You NRA member! I totally agree with both comments. I don't have a problem with my tax dollars or Clintonia's tax dOllars going to pay for any type of protection for our kids. Hell, after those comments I hope they put in bullet proof windows now. Just so he can get even more mad about it. "Thanks for the tax contribution Clintonia"! Your wopping $50.00 a year you pay in taxes are going to protect our kids! Don't act like you pay thousands of dollars in taxes every year. There's no way because anyone that would make a stupid comment like that can NOT be that intelligent anyway. Therefore you can't have a good job you idiot!

Who has been shooting people? Sandy Hook was a hoax. The so called "victims" were seen in photos not but 2 weeks later and the guns were found in the trunk of a car. Do the research. It was all a hoax. All of these shootings are either hoaxes or planned out. And people say its to help lobby against guns to get them banned but that's not even close.

The real agend isn't to get guns taken away, its to get more guns in public places. Cops in every school, more security in offices, more important rights willingly given up. The gun issue is a decoy and the easiest way to get the sheep up in debate and ignoring the real issues of people begging for a police state. Why do guns not matter in control? Because the government is already in control. They are going to send in an army or secret police to kill us or take us off to death camps. They're going to have us beg for more security. Any trained operative can take down your average gun nut easily. But begging to be safer in our daily life is asking for another patriot act. Wake up, sheeple

You guys can call me an imbecile if you'd like, you're still wrong. What you are saying is verging on a socialistic idea. I don't have kids...and no, I don't care about yours. I empathise with those parents who lost children. I do, its horrid. However, and let's use a current national issue for example: IF getting rid of aaaaaaaall firearms in the nation, and henceforth guaranteeing you the safety of your children from shootings was put to a vote, would you vote for it? I'm pretty sure you wouldn't, "NRA", because you want YOUR protection, and YOUR constitutionally protected RTBA and I do not believe that you would give ur firearms up to save a classroom of children in ur own town let alone halfway across the country.. And to "You're An Idiot": I don't get assistance from the government. I don't do food stamps and I don't do low income housing. I don't use banks to keep my money for me, and I don't acquire loans from them. You know why? Because all of it would come at your expense. If I go live in Gate Manor, you and the rest of the taxpayers pay half my bills. Same thing goes for banks. If I go and borrow a loan, it doesn't come from the government...it doesn't come even from the private sector. It comes from everyone else who has money in banks. I make my own. I worry about my own. You should too. What I don't do is play ball. That's not to say I don't have a sense of community either. Kinda like....ohhhh, I dunno, tax dollars being spent on jail additions, when we didn't need it? Coulda been spent on our library...or our community center....or fixing some roads...adding to or renovating our dilapodating downtown district. Hell, start a fundraiser and if I AGREED w putting police in schools id be down to throw you a hundred bucks. At least then I have a choice. What YOURE talking about, is essentially taxation without representation. This is YOUR agenda, not mine. Its not even a MUNICIPAL agenda. Its a personal one. People: The world you live in is shitty. People are shitty and messed up. That's a fact. There will always be atrocities, there will always be tragedies. If you guys wanna remain "eyes wide shut" to that fact and start grasping for "safety straws" everytime a tragedy happens, then I pity you. The Ron Paul guy has a point, but I don't think I woulda gone as far down the rabbit hole as he did. Clinton is already a policed city. We all know this. You can't drive from one end of the city to the next without counting ten cops. We don't have a curfew here, for adults, but you can't walk the streets as an adult without getting questioned and run through the system. What good do they do? Prevent crime? No. You know what the majority of inmates are in jail for here in AC? Driving on suspended licenses. I know this because I've asked several of them personally. More than 70% of "criminals" in jail at any given time here get caught on suspended licenses lol. That's where the majority of ur hard earned dollars are goin, to put people who can't afford car insurance in jail. And we just allowed them to use our money to house even more of them. Good for us lol! But hey, they keep us "safe", right? Little bit of piece of mind?

Duhhhhhhhh, "Dod porbid tey tart tardeting paygrounds or tool buses, what ten one ton ebeby bus" ? Listen to your dumbass self! Isn't there a wrestling match it town you can go attend? we are talking about protecting innocent children an like NRA said before if anything they do saves one child's life then it is all worth it. I am sure if someone came into the place you worked and starting shooting up the place you would point fingers at your boss or CEO and ask "Why don't you have better protection for your employees?" then he says "It just isn't in the budget" I am sure you would take the same stance as you are now and say, " I totally understand this probably want happen again because there are millions of companies like is everyday and you just don't here this happening all the time." Probsbly want ever happen again!" Don't waist the companies money. Yah right! You probably complain because your boss or CEO doesn't provide you donuts everyday with the free coffee! You would be up on arms for better protection at your place of employment!
