Me being from Boston is entirely irrelevant. It changes nothing about any of the articles I linked (more than just Salon). Some are for his posse
patrolling near schools, sure, some are not. I posted articles which state that some parents and schools are concerned and don't want the posse near
schools, you posted an article that state some parents and schools are happy about it.
My points are these and nothing I have said is bunk, lies or partisan:
From his own mouth, he doesn't care if schools want his posse nearby or not, he's going to continue having patrols near the (I think) 60 schools in
Some of the volunteers have criminal backgrounds including drug offenses, assaults, domestic violence and one person convicted of sex crimes involving
Is it okay in your mind to have one child sex offender 'deputized' and put on patrol that includes schools simply because it's only one out 3,400 or
Or does perhaps this man who is so concerned with child safety need to have better background checks in place for his volunteer posse?
Lies, lies, lies, yeah . . .
You being on the other side of the country and not able to verify anything you have said . . . makes a pretty big difference if we are talking about
truth and ignorance.
You also only posted three links . . . one of which was contained in the first (KPHO report). Please find me in those three links where any school
administrator is complaining about this program or said they did not want their help.
I have provided you with a link that states exactly the opposite from a local source (State paper's website), a source that actively butts heads with
Joe on many issues. Included are quotes from several school admin and parents (one article!!)
You have provided three articles that provide one quote from a parent that says
"They have guns? No, I don't like that and I can't believe
something like this would be implemented without speaking to parents first," Susanne Ross told 3TV.
And one quote from a school principal that stated he was unsure if the marked car had posse or actual deputies in it . . . said he was confused, but
didn't say he was against it.
So . . . please LOL some more and tell me how you've shown this outrage to be the case and how everyone is against it? Where are the parents
protesting? Where are the heated school board meetings? You do realize that this news is over a month and a half old, right? And it seems the only
reason it's brought up this week is due to Stephen Seagal helping to train his officers (Seagal owns a MA studio west of PHX).
If this wasn't connected to the media/govs push against guns, would it even be an news story . . . nah. If Joe wasn't such a polorizing figure would
anyone outside of AZ heard about it . . . nah.
If we want to match shock for shock sake . . . would you rather want Arpaio or the Boston PD looking after you kid? Based on articles I can google .
. . I wouldn't want my kid anywhere near Boston PD.
So . . . once again . . . in all your bias based on your perception of this person (Joe), which is based on articles that want people to think he is a
monster . . . where you have stated you know nothing about other than a Salon and ABC article . . . what do you have beside poorly sourced articles
filled with lies to back up any of your "shock" or your assertion that "criminals and pedophiles are given guns and sent amongst our children"? Why
does it matter if Joe says he doesn't care if the schools want it or not . . . They are in his jurisdiction, his responsiblity, and no parents or
schools complained or asked them to leave . . . beyond the lone "I don't like it" from your article.
I'll take your anwser off air . . . I'm not concerned with your personal opinion to be honest. However, there are those that live around this
situation and know it is nothing like what it is reported in print . . . In fact, I haven't seen one protest, emergency meeting, board decision from
any school district or PTA that has come out against this program. No one is making a deal about this except the media and as a result Joe.
Silly rabbits . . . keeping repeating the lies.
