At this point, it was the only viable option. There's Zero public trust left. They'll have to start fresh.

The correct number of cops in schools is zero. Zero cops.
 
2022-10-07 5:37:03 PM  
hell yeah now do all the other police departments.
 
2022-10-07 5:37:48 PM  
Zodiac's brilliant strategy is to add more cops to prevent this from happening again.
 
2022-10-07 5:38:01 PM  
Good.


/also in before the TX legislature holds an emergency session to pass a law requiring Uvalde in particular to put more cops in schools

Is it a paid suspension? Because that's not a punishment, gang.
 
2022-10-07 5:39:43 PM  
They had a police force?

Damn they're more wimp than me. And I farted myself awake on more than one occasion.

nolanvoid1: Is it a paid suspension? Because that's not a punishment, gang.


True.  But they were already being paid to not do their job.  This just makes it official.
 
2022-10-07 5:42:30 PM  
During the suspension, current officers with the department "will fill other roles in the district. "...

Make them give the cafeteria and sanitary workers foot rubs after work, daily.
 
2022-10-07 5:43:05 PM  
As an officer with a police department dedicated to a school ,you have to protect that school at the bare minimum.
They didn't and couldn't.
No cops need to be near schools. The only things they ever do is body slam middle school girls and create arrest records for elementary children.
 
2022-10-07 5:43:10 PM  
That's some farking lag they got going there.
 
2022-10-07 5:43:45 PM  
Suspend them?  Hell, they should have catapulted the Uvalde School District Police into the the Sun, as a lesson in physics and accountability.

Seriously.
There's a substantial difference between being paid and having to go to your job and work vs being paid and doing whatever the fark you want.

austerity101: The correct number of cops in schools is zero. Zero cops.


Well no duh, but the correct number of people with guns in schools is zero. Zero people with guns.

But this is America, so someone's always upsetting the balance.
 
2022-10-07 5:44:25 PM  
The entire police force? Suspended? As in not working?

How could anyone tell?

austerity101: The correct number of cops in schools is zero. Zero cops.


Why?  I disagree that they should be there to be 'Officer Friendly' and giving DARE classes, but I wouldn't object to a special constable or something showing up and handling more serious playground offenses sort of like a children's show version of COPS.

School is for teaching kids.  Well, when Billy and his friends jump Joey, maybe having a cop 'arrest' them and throw them in the school jail for a day might help them get the idea that crap isn't acceptable.  It could still fall under in loco parentis rather than actual policing if the offense wasn't serious enough.  Hell, you could even have a model court system with lawyers and juries and the whole bit.  Be a hell of a law class in high school, wouldn't it?

School Police: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)
Youtube KgwqQGvYt0g


"School police are not the answer to school shootings. The answer to that is gun control. When we throw more cops into schools as an easy way out of that difficult and necessary conversation, we not only fail to keep our kids safe from gun violence, we condemn them to a system that criminalizes the very essence of childhood.

Kids deserve to be annoying without being arrested, to be sad and angry without being body slammed. They deserve to have tantrums, throw carrots, do science experiments, talk shiat and carve their names into stuff without risking ending up in the back of a police car. They deserve to be curious, to make mistakes, to go a little too far, to be a little too loud - to basically be a farking kid.

And they definitely deserve better than the fundamental lie that the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy who can arrest a five-year-old."

Administrative leave? Jesus. Mueller chose to resign...finally had some common sense there. They both should have been fired.

"Recent developments have uncovered additional concerns with department operations," the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District said in a statement Friday. "

So the cops behavior and everything they failed to do up to this point wasn't a good enough enough reason to fire them already? Need to do a little more studying, huh?
 
2022-10-07 5:46:55 PM  
Great plan.  Now there aren't any police to protect the children.
You didn't think about that point, did you?
 
2022-10-07 5:47:52 PM  
if you want to punish them make them work as teachers for a year.  give the teachers actual training in weapon use and then pay them cop salaries to do a full time job just walking around getting just guarding the school while the former cops teach history to the room full of 8y/o's with ADD for half the money.
 
2022-10-07 5:48:12 PM

Some of them maybe put Memphis style BBQ sauce on their brisket.

I find the having an entire department dedicated to a district kinda weird. I dunno about TX but if they have mandatory attendance like they do here in MI, it sounds remotely familiar, like minimum security prisons with work release, but for kids.

Private_Citizen:

Sepuku might not be illegal.  I don't know the particulars in that area, but even if it were illegal, it's still technically an option.

You have to keep an open mind.

There was probably a shooter executing hostages in the file room where they keep the suspension forms.
 
2022-10-07 5:53:14 PM  
"It was not clear how long the suspension would be for."

What the fark is that shiat? The entire force should have been disbanded quite awhile ago. Use the money for something actually helpful to students, because that police force sure as hell wasn't.

Credit the citizens of Uvalde of making this (the suspensions) happen.

He's probably hoping that by resigning he won't be investigated. I don't think that'll work out too well for him.
 
2022-10-07 5:54:20 PM  
The cops were complicit. They sat around in the hallway farking around on their phones and actively prevented parents from attempting to rescue their own children. Every last one of those so-called cops belong on The Registry. They deservefar worse.

The land of the free already has the highest per capita incarceration rate, so why not train kids for this early!
 
2022-10-07 5:55:34 PM  
But the shooter had a gun! The police aren't trained to deal with a situation like that! They're only trained to badger unarmed people of color and to upgrade minor traffic violations into misdemeanors!

I know I feel much better for now.
Until the next time a teenager wants to take a military weapon and go kill a bunch of schoolkids, and there's nothing stopping him.
Oh well.

This is what happens when the police work for themselves and not the public.

An officer "being afraid" should not be a justification for anything, ever. This 'brave for the parade but fear for my life on the job' is bullshiat.

They wanted this job, we don't conscript policemen. AND they turned the goddamn profession into an army surplus toting steroid paintball brigade.

Uvalde was a horror, but also illuminating on just how badly the police forces in this country do not farking work for us.
