We’re Saved! Wake School Board Considers Putting Unarmed Guards In Schools

Will the job include training in yelling “oh, shit” and “run away!”, along with how to dial 911?

(WRAL) The Wake County Board of Education is expected to vote Tuesday on a proposal to put one unarmed security guard at each of the district’s 105 elementary schools.

If approved, the measure would cost $835,000 for three months or nearly $2.4 million for a year for a contract with AlliedBarton Security Services. The company already provides security for some of the schools in the district.

Look, I’m not disparaging the folks who work for AlliedBarton, it just seems silly to pony up $2.4 million for security that won’t be able to stop an armed maniac.

“We’re trying to take some proactive steps to keep our schools safe,” he said. “There aren’t any threats being posed, but we have some issues around access with some of our elementary schools. They are not covered in the same way as our middle and high schools.”

Sounds more like the Democrat majority on the Board are trying to show that they are “Doing Something.” The vote is at 330pm today.

What’s another victim to these people?

This is just another sheep the fox can devour.

But they can say “hey, we spent $2.4 million in taxpayer money. We did our part!”

OK. Wait. So, they are spending $2650 per “cop” per month? That AT LEAST $16 per hour to walk around and squeal real loud when something bad happens.

And that is cheaper than putting an actual cop there?

Average salary of a cop in North Carolina is $40,000 where this is $32,700 or so.

So yeah, it is less expensive, but what you are getting or not getting is not worth it.

They could put religion, morals, ethics and daily prayers back into schools at a tiny fraction of that cost.

We were not having any of those shootings in schools before prayers and religion were renoved from the schools to appease immoral people.

Stupid is as stupid does. Those liberal acadenics are imbeciles with absolutely no common sense at all.

I’m curious.

At the bottom of this thread, you say that it has received more than 50 comments.

But only a few of those comments are shown. Where are all of the others?

I’ve seen this discrepancy on other threads, too.

Yup, spam. The WordPress scripts used to show the comment count no longer exclude spam. I’m hoping a future update to WP will rectify this. I’ve tried all sorts of different scripts, no dice.

Teach what do you think WOULD stop an armed maniac? Geezers with guns? Teach 10% of all the police that were shot and killed last year were killed with their own guns, that is by an unarmed maniac who when he became armed then was able to kill the formerly armed officer. How about mine fields and armored vehicles ? Or just reconstruct all of our schools like prisons, with a sally port where everyone is searched. Armed guards on all school buses ? Why not just militarize the whole country you know to insure that t all of the current gun laws are enforced?

So your idea is to say fuck it and leave people open to criminals and psychos? Good plan!
