Lots of principals I know spend a year in the classroom and go straight into administration. They're not usually extremely bright or have a lot of common sense. And they're usually ASU education majors who were too dumb for the MBA program.

I'll take some of that popcorn, btw.

Seems like the principle goes through life trying to please everyone. Glad she's leading children. The officer shouldn't use fadbook at all and just go about his business. Her request was unreasonable and a good leader would tell the parents their request is unreasonable. A deputy showed up to one of my kid's games once in the patrol car and everything and just watched. I felt on the clock it was an abuse of his job to an extent, but cut the guy a break when I realized the guy just wanted to see his kid play for a few minutes. He gave the boy a hug and said good job and was gone.

But don't we want armed policemen in the schools to protect the children from mad rampaging gunmen?

If he can be trusted with a gun in public.  Let him have it at the school during the brief amount of time each day he is dropping off and picking up his daughter.

Dammit.

To be fair, isn't that Sheriff Joe territory?  I don't know if I'd want any of his goons there either.....

/idiot principal & whoever else in the administration thought that this was a good idea
//It would be interesting to know if the parent demanding this was also one of the idiots demanding an armed policeman in every school/classroom 9 months ago when they were just SURE that their little snowflake was going to be blown away at school sometime in the next week or two
///I wonder if the school has a 'School Resource Officer' prowling the halls every day - a uniformed policeman in other words

Well how bright does even the most qualified principal have to be?
 
2013-10-04 09:53:43 PM
Really, they shouldn't allow anyone with a uniform into the school.  If someone shows up to "work on the HVAC system", the administration should just take their word for it.  It'll make the kids feel more comfortable, and that's what's important.

There is likely more to this story.

Almost everything that seems so absolutely absurd on its face has more to the story.

Really good school principals are absolutely amazing. For lack of a better phrasing, they go all momma bear on each of their kids and all of their staff. They are wonderful people you want to have on your side.

The Examiner provides little additional information.

If the articles are providing the whole story, well, it's friggin' absurd. If he's on the job, or he's just off the job and going home, what in the hell is this guy supposed to do?

That uniform, including that gun, is part of his friggin' job. That's like telling me I can't wear a pocket protector or bring my laptop when I pick up my kid because some parents are afraid of a nerd on school grounds.

Most schools around here have a uniformed officer on duty and in the school.

How the hell are you too stupid for an MBA program? I thought the qualification for that was 'do you embarass the banana slug at tennis'?

Pft. They'd just hold you down and give you a wedgie.

"They invited the officer to a special assembly to talk about what police officers do for the community. "

what police officers do for the community

LOL, that could be interesting if they are creative and realistic about it.

Not necessarily. If you're talking about a principal and zero tolerance rules, it could be exactly like the story says.

So they don't have a problem with a policeman as long as it's a  secret policeman.

He probably had his radio on him, and I'm pretty sure cops don't need to continually drive around at all times. Hell, I had some EMT paramedics come by my place once and buy a small desk (taken apart so it was flat) then take it away in their ambulance while still on duty. If they had gotten a call, they would have left immediately. Part of the job is just waiting...may as well do something productive while you do. Watching a game is better than giving out speeding tickets in my book.

Principal: "Please don't wear your uniform or sidearm when dropping off or picking up your child".

Officer: "How about NO. Does 'no' work for you?"

Odd you should say that, since approx. 99% of the "OMG, he's owns a gun, we're all going to die" people are Democrats.

My son's principal asked me not to wear my uniform when I drop off my boy at school. Such a ridiculous request. There's absolutely nothing wrong with my uniform.

This probably falls within the school's anti-gang policy.
 
2013-10-04 10:45:48 PM
I really don't understand the irrational fear some people have of firearms.

You don't get eye cancer for looking at them, you don't transform into a murderer because you've encountered one. Not once has a gun ever forced a person to pull it out and start shooting.

What is the actual danger imagined in this situation?
 
2013-10-04 10:46:14 PM
Thank goodness we have Fox News to shine the light on society's fear of guns, and CNN News to shine the light on society's fear of gays.

The term "teachable moment" is the most stupid phrase/rationalization I've ever heard. I work at a large University and have heard it more times than I can remember. And it's almost ALWAYS used by clueless administrators (an oxymoron, I know).

we're supposed to hate the people who piss their pants at the sight of anything vaguely gun-shaped.

What do they do if he does show up in his uniform?  Call the police?

As my wife says, she can handle being a teacher.  They deal with misbehaving children.  She won't ever take a job as administration. They deal with misbehaving adults.

The first thing I looked at: I really don't understand the irrational fear some people have of firearms.

You don't get eye cancer for looking at them, you don't transform into a murderer because you've encountered one. Not once has a gun ever forced a person to pull it out and start shooting.

Children see the gun, then begin playing with fake guns using their fingers.  Mass suspensions ensue.

Moronic suggestion:
To honor the schools request, the police should announce and institute a policy that no uniformed or armed officer shall ever be at that school.

No matter what.

Good point but, well, it's not the "good cops" you read about in the news.  My brother is with the sheriff's dept. and would be the first to tell you there are a few bad eggs but on the whole they are few and far between.

According to the comments, he was a tactical SWAT officer in uniform.

To be fair to the officer in question, I have never once seen a tactical SWAT uniform that didn't have "POLICE" visible from just about every angle in letters about 2-3 inches high (except for the sleeves, where they're only one inch high). There is no reason parents should have been scared unless popo was shooting puppies across the street while serving a warrant on a drug house during recess. But this poor guy was just dropping his kid off at school. People need to get a farking grip and stop wetting their farking pants at the merest hint of projectiles.

No it's like telling a citizen to be unarmed on schools grounds. Besides, if he is working then why is he running personal errands utilizing government resources?

What he afraid of?
