quote: Parent Cindy Fliedner, who has two children in third grade at Chatfield, said the incident has not changed her view that bringing in the officer was a great idea. "We're just going to have to refine our procedures," Fliedner said. "I'm thrilled that the board at Chatfield was proactive to take the steps to protect our children."
Never-mind that the parents of kids at the school approve of the armed guard, you definitely know what's better for them. Just like a good little liberal!

The cop is obviously an idiot and should pay for the mistake with his job but the chances are like one in a billion that a kid is going to come in be like "time to shoot up the school". Most people aren't psychopaths.

Most of the time police are just reacting to crime. There's very little crime prevention done. This is one of the few areas where you can have some level of prevention, although I don't think we need full fledged police officers.
