1. There is a difference between the uniformed armed security in inner-city schools and what actually needs to be done. A BIG one.
The armed security that needs to be implemented has to meet these requirements if we actually care about our kids.
1. Full psychiatric exams at regular intervals, and people around them actually CARING how they feel about their health (physical and mental) and
personal life. These things can severely affect someones preparedness. Special treatment MUST be given here, I don't care what the stupid over worked
American mind-set has to say about it.
2. Bare minimum 100 rounds 3 times a week at the range. They are around our children. I do not care about the cost. These are more important than air
3. A DECENT, but NOT overpayed, salary. Starting at a BARE MINIMUM of 50,000 (my opinion so what, I know the funds could be made available if the
truly wealthy wished it to be so) a year and that is seriously low balling it. We do not want them in it for the money, but we do not want a lack of
money to cause them to have personal problems that affect their judgment. Remember, they are both armed security and faculty for reasons in point 5.
Not necessarily teachers, but faculty that performs some VERY easy task.
4. We must make sure they have a CARING attitude. This is important, because we want people who are very protective of children. These are the people
we want that will not shoot without a extremely clear shot around kids and also will kill the shooter or die trying.
5. No one, even the regular teachers, can know who they are. They must blend in, and have a job that everyone recognizes as being legit. A job that
takes no large amount of focus. Hall monitors maybe IDK about what the best job would be. Not teacher though. Most importantly, they must be in PLAIN
CLOTHES and not a single student especially can know they are armed. They can know people are armed in the school fine but not which ones.
6. Their weapons must remain on their HIP at ALL times throughout the day, with a safe holster.
Bed time, maybe more later. Just thought this might clear it up.
The key thing is - you are talking about a TON of money for each school to get 5 of these guys and meet these requirements.
Something else to think about - it would stimulate the economy. Seriously. It is a win win. You would have a ton of job creation, not just the guards
either. The psychiatric exams would generate a ton of jobs. These jobs would be putting back into the economy. Plus a group to regulate them... you
get the point. There would be TONS of jobs generated. In the end it is win win. Short term there's a financial sacrifice.
Thoughts on how to accomplish this?
