phrawgh: It didn't work out so well in Beslan.


I noticed all the kids are wearing nice looking jackets. I was told a uniform dress code would make people behave. Why the need for ex-marines if you have the power of mandatory fashion?!

They need my old drill sergeant, he was a very good motivator.  My senior drill sergeant was a great motivator, too.  On the first day of basic, he told us we would be the honor company of the training cycle or he would kill us.  We soon learned he meant it, and we were the honor company.  Maybe today's snowflakes need a little more discipline, instead of constant hand holding, both in school and at home.

/Strict discipline didn't hurt me a bit, even though at 63, I still have that twitch I picked up in high school.

It's not a bad idea. Assuming these 'commandos' aren't themselves crazy, they're largely an unknown quantity to the kids. Kids know what limits the teachers have, they don't know what limits these military guys (and gals) have.

It's almost like people have forgotten that a critical component of raising a kid that isn't a mannerless, self-absorbed shiatstain is intimidation.

The laws have taken that out of the tookit of the school administration, but looks like these military guys can still bring it to the table.
