Last May the city council of Alexandria decided to cave to the pressure from those making the most racket. The usual suspects hounded the board to “reimagine” the cops…starting with the school resource officers. The whiners claimed that the cops scared the kids and threatened the peace and serenity of the schools.

Once again, with no input from the schools, the board did just that. They eliminated the SEO program. The city saved 800K and pledged to use the $$$ to hire mental health professionals. Jeeze, I just feel warm and fuzzy all over.

Well, school started and the bullies and blowhards took command. No cops, let’s just raise hell. Nothing will happen. They’re right, nothing happened to the wipes causing the trouble. The cops always handled this!! We’re educators, not cops.

Last week the Superintendent of schools appeared before the city council and pleaded for the re-instatement of the SRO program. After some serious butt scratching and numerous, faulty explanation’s the board took it under advisement. In the meantime the “meanies” are wrecking havoc in the schools.

Get a grip folks. Get this program going. Not tomorrow or next week, NOW!

Peace
