Bulletproof Therapists

  • SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Some Illinois lawmakers want to give extra money to schools that replace armed security officers with unarmed social workers and behavior therapists, an approach to safety that's far different than a national push to add police or arm teachers following a mass shooting at a Florida high school.

    Rep. Emanuel "Chris" Welch, a Hillside Democrat, said he proposed the plan after hearing from advocates who argue that investing in mental health resources is the best way of treating the epidemic of violence.

    His plan, which is backed by 16 other Democrats in the House, would allow schools to apply to an optional grant if they promise to reallocate funding for school-based law enforcement to mental health services, including social workers or other practices "designed to promote school safety and healthy environments."
We can hardly wait. No doubt it will cut the workload on Second Watch by 25% plus the School Officers will be back pushing a beat car, alleviating watch shortages.

Maybe these idiots can hire a rainbow colored unicorn therapist with the money they save getting rid of people that will save the little boogers lives. And then, after many dead little tykes, the morons will hire the cops back. Of course, it will be the guns fault, not the fault of faulty reasoning progressive marxist thinking. These people are as dumb as a bag of shit.

Sounds good to me. I'm interested to see how well they do with an armed offender bent on killing. Besides, have you seen a CPS school lately. The place is a prison.
Surveillance cameras placed in and outside the facility.
Guards placed at the entrance.
Guards walking the facility amongst the prisoners, I mean students.
Metal detectors placed at the entrances.
Metal doors that are only opened electronically after being buzzed by some unseen guard watching you via camera.

So let me get this straight........

Mental health resources are the best way of treatinbthe epidemic of violence?
Well then why did politicians CLOSE ALL OF THE MENTAL HEALTH FACILITIES?

Illinois, and the Chicagoland area are in dire need of a better mental health care program, and paying school babysitters is not the answer.

A good idea. These school and other mass shooters are all mentally disturbed. We need to put mental health experts into our schools to confront and calm them, not police or armed teachers to kill the poor disturbed folks.

"Chris" Welch ought to be in prison for what he and his cohorts did to the Proviso high school district. People still move rather than send their kids to Proviso East. But this is Illinois so he gets elected state rep and runs unopposed every term and has become some type of education expert. This state sucks

Is Rep Welch related our gold star Welch? Went from a merit do nothing sgt to commander in 6 months, then now a chief. If the media had any balls they would look at his career and.look for anything that he accomplished during any rank to deserve a single promotion. The short answer is, be has done a single thing. He is the shining example of how deeply flawed the Merit process is.

Let the commie teachers wrestle with their charges during the daily bullshit.

They can throw river rocks at shooters.

Having anything to do with “schools” is a losing proposition for the poleeces.

Here’s a deal: The police pull out of the “schools”, ya’ll stop fucking with my Second Amendment.

Good luck👮🏻👍🏼

Any one keeping track of these school shooting. As I was discussing high schools with another police officer we both agreed that Northside College Prep was extremely liberal and the teachers feel it’s their duty to brain wash their students into this leftist way of thinking. This is why I’m paying several thousands of dollars to keep my kids away from CPS.
So that leads me to my question. How many of these school shootings occurred in public schools versus private school?

Ha-ha-ha-ha! You MORON. They mean spending money (spending is NOT 'investing') on Mental Health Clinics, Mental Asylums, and Psychiatrists and others to staff them. So the Crazies can be taken off the streets and put in a rubber room so society is safe from them. And not to put another unarmed target in a school, and targets these shrinks would be as they'd undoubtedly piss off someone with mental issues and would be first ones that 'Crazy Joe' would want to 'get even' with -- 'Call me abnormal will ya, okay Doc, well you'll get yours'.

Jesus H! Leave it to a Democrat to take an idea and totally twist it beyond recognition of its original intent.

Take note folks. Never underestimate the stupidity of a Democrat, especially an Illinois Democrats. It's a Special Kind of Stupid.

Not a bad idea but the approach is wrong. Keep the security and add the social workers. It's bad enough already what is there to lose, a little more tax dollars? Figure the cost difference between incarceration and this program. Make it a successful program. In Illinois though, this too will most likely be a failure.

The police are going to be called anyway when some client freaks out and gets violent in the counselor's office. This won't save any money, nor will it make our prisons/collective schools any safer.

Good, but please work into the law that those violence mitigation specialists are to be used instead of 911. No more of the BATIP during the day and the school dismissal special attention at....certain schools...sucking up 2nd aaaaaand 3rd watch resources. I’m all for pulling all CPD out of public schools. It will never happen but the lesson would be satisfying.

The basic concept of trying to get help for the mentally ill is a good one. The problem is that history suggests that it will need to be backed up with places to lockup those who can't be helped but are a threat to the rest of us.

The history of such places is pretty grim and no one who knows how those places actually operated wants to go back to such an abomination.

Simple concise to the point!Why also does rahm have a detail of coat holders as large as the first lady of the United States? We know he has the hidden wedding dress,and the ballerina back ground could it be repressed feelings is this why he has so many? Also has at least 6 new the biggest Suv's available that get 7-8mpg, but yet he says "I am an environmentalist!" Strange how the rahm controlled sun-times is shutting down soon, wonder what happened? Why does the city treasurer you know the girl rahm handed that easy do nothing cake job, a security contingent complete with police vehicles fully equipped?Not to leave out the treasurer (wow we have a treasurer where does Casper hide at?)

Now all that money thrown away,these details cost at least 6 million a year or more, plus they get that pension dip with a commanders or a sergeants pension all the while never taken a test, only qualification is running red lights quickly,and not dropping the jacket! On that note just got the pension report not promising, and to think these people get a big portion for what?

Rahm how about you take the social workers with you and live among the people of the CTA Where the acronyms are

Come on tough guy rahm dance on the trains, but your to scared and so is your so called detail valets!

WTH is a "non-serious offense?" Battery, assault, robbery? And the other students and staff are just supposed to suck it up so that the little darling doesn't get a record? No consequences for bad/criminal behavior if you're a minority, because you can't possibly be expected to follow the rules of decent society?

WBEZ was running a story this morning about how CPS can't get teachers to work in some of the crap neighborhoods. I'm sure taking armed security away is going to help with that problem.

"Illinois, and the Chicagoland area are in dire need of a better mental health care program, and paying school babysitters is not the answer"

Sounds like a state controlled machine to feed high priced shrinks to "treat" mentally damaged children. Most likely due to parental neglect and abuse.

Somewhere along the line here, the problem needs to be yanked out at the root.

Here is the WBEZ story referred to by the 05:02 PM poster above.

It contains a telling quote as to why so many Chicago schools are failing: Playing surrogate parent to kids whose parents actually need "parenting classes".

“I really enjoyed listening to her speak about being rooted in a community — understanding that the school is not contained within the school, but it is much more,” Turner said. “The food pantry, the parenting classes, those are things that line up with what I believe makes a difference in a child's life.”

Exactly, it's all about the money. None of these soulless ghouls care one wit about the students, except that they exist to provide a plausible excuse for all the fiscal fuckery committed upon the taxpayer.

It's always about more taxpayer money being transferred to liberal sinecures, staffers and organizations. These 'people' are human lampreys.
