/DARE doesn't work

My definition is: "Provides college stoners with DARE t-shirts to wear ironically." In that sense, it's working spectacularly.

So how much money could the federal government save if it got rid of this bullshiat?
 
2011-07-28 11:45:45 PM  
I can't believe we are still funding that absurdity.

Wow. Great example for our children.

Maybe concerned citizens (along with children) should set up DUI checkpoints for our police officers.

What a shame. God is so ashamed.

Yup. I still remember waiting to cross a street one day when this kid rides up to me on his bike wearing a DARE t-shirt. First words out of his mouth: "Hey man, you wanna buy some pot?"

I'm all for D.A.R.E. for our children. It's just one of those lies you need to tell kids to keep them in line, like Santa and the Tooth Fairy.

The dare officer from my hometown was arrested on charges of possesion with intent to sell for marijuana, shrooms, and whatever else he had recently been raided.

My DARE officer in 5th and 6th grade was actually a really good cop. He gave it his all, he believed in it, he was a good man. He retired and he admitted to me a while back that he knows that it was useless. He regrets being brainwashed himself but he does not regret trying to help us kids. He has my respect. At least he is honest about it.

fact: when I was in D.A.R.E, my anti-drug essay was chosen as
the best from my whole class and I read it at our "graduation" ceremony.

As far as I know, mine was a really nice guy, too. I can't judge off-hand what he believed, but I don't remember him telling us any outright lies, either. Of course, I'm pretty sure I was in one of the pretty early forms of the program, too.

The cop that hung out at our HS, on the other hand, while not terrible, was a bit of an ass to me. Then again, I was kind of a punk. A harmless one, though.

my best friend got to sit quietly in the hallway and read while her class did DARE. she brought home the letter they send parents before it starts and they sat her down and said "look. you're probably going to try drugs and you're probably going to drink and to pretend otherwise is stupid. and to pretend like it's going to kill you even if you're responsible is even more stupid. so you don't have to sit through this crap."

/I love her parents

Actually, it's paved with frozen door-to-door and used car salesmen. On Sundays, the younger demons often go ice-skating on them.

I'd settle for a cop suffering the SAME consequences as the rest of us first.

D.A.R.E has been the biggest public service flop since "Don't Copy That Floppy". It's a waste of money and ought to be shut down.

According to Officer Newcomb, his dog distracted him and that led to the accident. Maybe this is obscure, but if I had a nickel for everytime an officer of the law harrassed someone about looking for their dog, I would be a millionaire. Maybe this story deserves an "Ironic" tag.

It has been statistically 0% effective and cost billions of dollars.

That makes it one of the most successful parts of the drug war.

At least it hasn't directly led to countless murders and cost trillions like some other parts.

Just wanted to say that I'm still pretty upset that I was sick the day in middle school they showed the sex education films. And there was no make-up showing of them.

/not really on subject, but really wanted to vent that.

When my children get to that age (and if they haven't axed the program yet) I'm going to opt them out of it. It's a waste of money, and I believe it does more harm then good.

I will be *gasp* a parent and talk to them about it myself. Hopefully I will have instilled some personal responsibility by then that will help them with these difficult subjects in life.

I have never understood why DARE had to be taught in the classroom by a police officer. It wouid; be a better use of Police resources for the officer to be on patrol out on the street.

If I was looking to save money DARE would be one of the things I cut of course there are Federal funds involved so that is probably why it is still around.

It was an ad for White Zombie t-shirts.

I (and a bunch of my junior & senior high friends) always thought D.A.R.E. stood for "Don't Allow Rotund Enforcement." We had more than a few cops in our area that were winning the "Dickie Do" award.

/as in, "Your gut sticks out further than your dickie do."

2011-07-29 08:50:43 AM  
I particularly enjoy the story about the guy who runs the entire DARE program, when confronted with facts showing that it is both statistically ineffective and also based on exaggerations and flat out lies, simply responds with something like, "I think the popularity of the program should be a better indicator of our success." We're popular so we must be working? What the...?

When are people going to learn that when authority figures lie to children and those children find out, the children stop trusting authority figures?

From TFA:

Newcomb had a dog in the truck with him. He told police the dog distracted him and that's what caused the crash.
