    ...our high school has an officer that patrols...I find it a very good idea...the really dedicated officers are the ones who get the duty...not the so-called "cowboys"...

    Our high school had an officer on duty back in the early 90s. The idea was noble, but we totally had the wrong guy. He was a Vietnam War veteran (he had been in heavy combat... and was not reluctant to share gruesome tales of slaughtering entire squadrons of Viet Cong to students while in the Assistant Principal's waiting room). We had always half assumed he was dead serious, and other times, half assumed he was full of BS... but we erred on the side of caution with this loose cannon. Anyhow, the guy was totally warped... a fight on the schoolyard would automatically turn into the Fall of Saigon... a fire drill would become of the bombing of Cambodia... the kids smoking in the bathroom were the Viet Cong. The guy, in truth, was more a liability than anything... he almost reminds me of a SK character.

I found the folks from there to be very friendly. I think I would be wary now though. I have never seen a handgun and I do not wish to see one. YIKES!

    This is a key statement and applies to every country. The bad guys are always going to find weapons.

    A police officer on site at any time is a good deterrence.
