No Guns in Schools

Not just for students any more - none at all in Baltimore, even the police:
  • No guns for officers inside Baltimore City Schools.

    The proposed legislation caused a deep divide between supporters and opponents of the legislation.

    A delegation of city leaders unanimously decided to table the legislation in the State House of Delegates on Friday.

    This means that city school police will remain the only officers in the state forbidden to have guns in schools while classes are in session.
As we understand it, this department is like the Chicago Department of Aviation Police - they go through training, they are state certified, then they can't carry guns in the one place that they just might need them - the airport. It's not like there's ever been a terrorist incident at an airport. And schools? Schools are the safest place in the world for hundreds of unarmed children and their teachers.

Now instead of allowing the officers to carry their sidearms to protect our most valuable assets (according to the giant thinkers of the age), Baltimore is considering disbanding the whole department.

This is the conversation you get with liberals. Don't address why they need armed police in the school, just keep the guns away from the angels so they can learn. Oh, you say they're not learning? Well now, let's devote more resources to the children, hell $15,000 per year to babysit kids that don't want to learn is a bargain.

If these shits don't want to behave, kick them the hell out of regular school and send them to a special school for assholes and then when they're 17, kick them out and don't give them public aid. Hunger will cause them to learn some marketable job skills. Oh, you say they'll turn to crime? Fool, they already have.

Of course, when it becomes a knock-down drag out fist fight and you stomp the sweet babe's toes and slap the little misunderstood darling in the eye and tear the hair out of his/her armpit to bring the festivities to a quick conclusion, teacher becomes a witness against The Police...

Actually, we've said for years that Policemen have no damn business in schools... Policemen are trained to knock people (and folks) the fuck down and arrest them if they do the fool...

Take The Police out of public schools and chain the doors so nobody can escape except for bonafide emergencies.

This is a symptom of growing fear of people wielding police power.

My (rare) personal experience with local police has been uniformly positive, but we're all bathed in endless examples of excessive violence (e.g., SWAT raids over misdemeanors, shooting dogs for no reason) that seem to suggest that cops are now trained to react to even the slightest verbal opposition or body-language "disrespect" as a provocation in need of instant and overwhelming elimination.

Now we have youtube tutorials on how to act when stopped in a car to avoid getting shot by a jumpy (or over-aggressive) cop, right next to tutorials on how to avoid getting mauled by a bear or bitten by an aggressive dog.

No one wants to absorb a mag-dump from a jumpy cop for wielding a cell phone.

Even Caucasian, white-collar, well-educated people are increasingly nervous around cops. How did we get here and how do we get out of this dilemma?

Baltimore's solution, of course, is to let civilians who are willing to be vetted and trained carry their own personal guns CCW. Cops wade into conflict, while for an armed civilian, conflict is truly a last resort because even a hint of ambiguity will land the civilian in jail.

Of course, this is the last thing the leftists governing Baltimore will consider.

If there is a shooting in the school(s) and there are students trapped; then reading the law to the letter, you would be unable to carry. I know emergencies trump some bullshit gun law, but its fun to throw their nonsense back in their faces. Like, sorry I can't go in to get the bad guy(s), the law demands l can't carry weapons while students are present. More bullshit by pussy politicians.

You've got to wonder what Area 4 Youth Officer IRMA RUIZ would think of the unarmed school situation in Baltimore. This heroine's star hangs on the wall at 3510 S. Michigan Ave.

As you may recall, Irma and her partner Greg Jaglowski were assigned to Montefiore School (for "troubled" youth), 1310 S. Ashland Ave. on the morning of September 22, 1988.

After just murdering three others in a rampage, Clemmie Henderson, entered the school where he encountered and fired on the two CPD officers defending the children. Irma was murdered and Jaglowski was seriously wounded. However, in an exchange of gunfire, Officer Jaglowski shot and killed the deranged madman Henderson.

Rest in Peace, Irma.

The Baltimore school officers already carry firearms but only outside school grounds, they have to be locked away once they enter the school. But if you're a regular police officer going inside the school you can carry. It doesn't make any sense.

You ask how we got here and how do we get out of this dilemma.

We got here thanks to politicians and media who demonize and over-dramatize any and every police-involved incident.
Politicians use the police to draw votes, whether it's complaining about the big, mean police or villianizing their pensions.

The media no longer reports actual, factual news, but instead hypes and twists and misleads, all in the name of ever-higher ratings. It's all about the ratings and not about the truth, or fairness, and the police are easy targets, in their uniforms and inability to defend themselves using large media outlets.
Everybody from CNN and their biased, make it up as you go along, knee-jerk, Ferguson reportage, making up fuzzy nicknames for criminals (gentle giant), to Hollywood movies, to 'infotainment' shows like ET and Extra.
An episode of Scandal last week is a perfect example. Shonda Rimes did her version of Ferguson. A perfect black teen, a perfect black father of that teen, a hard-nosed white police boss defending his clench-jawed white cop after the white cop shoots the black teen. And, after the perfect, finishing school graduate black heroine investigates, oh, shocker, it turns out the white cop shot an unarmed teen and then conspired to plant a weapon on him. And then, the perfect black woman walked that dad into the President of the United States' office and dad got a heartfelt hug from POTUS.
See, see, see! said my liberal friends. THAT's what happened; they FRAMED that gentle giant in Ferguson!) I thought it was probably pointless to remind them their tv show potus had murdered a supreme court justice, their perfect heroine was doing the president with the first lady's permission and her father runs an illegal clandestine unit that kills more Americans than all the cops in the country do in a decade.
Because THAT doesn't matter; what matters is the POLICE ARE EVIL. Just ask the talking heads, the entertainers turned talk show hosts, the news readers, the HBO producers, the politicians and the people who rock back in their recliners all evening with the remote in their hands.

And how do we 'fix' this? Unless honor and integrity and honesty make a huge comeback in this nation, I don't think we can.

Baltimore and Maryland are corrupt from top to bottom. It's very similar to Chicago and Illinois. An old style machine survived and thrived by embracing the racial and sexual politics of the far left. All the while, the connected elites got richer.

Your next president might even be former Mayor and Governor Martin O'Malley, once Obama gets done destroying Hillary. Valery Jarret is encouraging O'Malley to run.

O'Malley latched onto CompStat early on and then implemented something called "CityStat" to quantify how well he was running the entire city.

It's all bullshit.

He's a con-man thru and thru, extremely liberal and reigned in Baltimore at a time when all sorts of silly shit was implemented by the PD to appease the ghetto.

Imagine if Obama and Richie Daley provided DNA to create a mutant that featured all of the worst qualities of both.

O'Malley is that mutant.

Did you know that Bill Gates has joined forces with Michael Bloomberg to back anti gun candidates running for various political positions around the country. They are starting to spend more money then the NRA. These two men go everywhere with armed security, yet they want to strip law abiding citizens of their right to bear arms.

Educate yourself on these poor innocents that are being slaughtered by the overly nervous, over aggressive or down right crazy police officers, please.

Find me one that was walking down the street minding their own business when some copper decided "Hwy, I'm bored. I think I'll go kick that guys ass". More officers show restraint than not by an astronomical multiplier.

While we are not perfect, you better look at the alternative. It's tough to run into trouble. It's easy to not see it and keep on going. You don't get sued and you don't get hurt.

Keep hating us. It's really getting easier to do nothing. It's starting to look crazy to do anything.

Less and less people are drawn to serve and put up with it. The quality of officers will decline drastically.

“Ensuring our students have a safe and clean learning environment is a top priority at CPS and it is unacceptable when any school is not meeting that standard,” Byrd-Bennett said.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Thursday responded to the survey with the same tough talk that went nowhere just a few months ago.

“I’ve told the company, they’d better fix this. And I’ve been in communication directly with the board that everybody has to be held accountable and, if it’s not, it’s gonna be a very short contract,” the mayor said after participating in a business roundtable.

Reminded that’s what he said the last time without results, Emanuel ignored the comment and walked away.

SWAT doing warrants on a misdemeanor is ok. A judge signed the warrant. SWAT doesn't have controll over the judges actions. A viloent offender isn't less like to be violent based on the crime commited.
This is true in all jusidictions.

As for shooting dogs. We don't have to wait to be attacked in order to defend ourselves. Did you ever think the subject of the warrant might be lying? Of course not.
Then again, every time I've found dope on a search warrant every resident has denied knowledge or ownership of said dope. You do the math.

Yes its true there are some retired CPD officers out there, but for the most part, the civillians at DOA hate them and do everything they can to screw with them.
Also, they told me the part time program is ending for retired PO's. It seems the union they were forced to join (SEIU) sold them out.
