In The Aftermath of Sandy Hook, A Deputy Will Be In Orange County Schools

They already have a sheriffs deputy in each of the middle and high school buildings. For the elementary it has been one officer to four schools. From now till the end of the school year there will be a sheriff's deputy in each separate school. It will cost upwards of $3 million to do this but the plan was passed unanimously. They say it will not take money from other programs it will just leave less in reserves. 

Think it's a good idea?

i don't see how this would work. We had an officer when i was in middle and high school as well. But were talking schools, not one room. Anyone can just walk in and start blasting away, the officer can't be everywhere at once. I think they are doing it more to give people a sense of security.. but really it's not. It can still happen. And as long as there are evil, crazy, and selfish people in the world, it will happen. The way it's going these days, by the time my son is old enough for school the world will be in complete ciaos.... :-(

It depends on the school. If there is only one way to get in and out of the school, then yes, having an officer will be a deterent.  The officer would have to be armed with an assault rifle though, that part is ridiculous, but true. 

It says no where of having to be armed with assault rifles. Deputies carry very nice handguns that can do just as much damage. So um..... not true. Where my kids went to school down in South Florida they always had armed oficers on campus and they didn't stroll around with assault weapons. They had police issued handguns.

As for the buildings the one thing that surprised me when we moved up here was that there were/are open campuses.In South Florida they are all closed campuses they started building them that way in the 90s the school there are a few left that aren't the but the majority have been renovated to be closed campus. so you just can't stroll onto campus.

A handgun is no match for an assault rifle, therein lies the problem with these mass shootings. I don't care where it "says" anything. And don't um me please.   I never said it was law, unlike you, I was using logic.

I can use umm.. all I want considering the remarks you have said to me or others on other threads. Anyhoo from other comments you have made I guess you don't know much about guns. However, I could be way off base there. But that being said, my semi automatic 12g holds 8 bullets most handguns hold 8-9 and are semi auto as well. So therefore both guns have to have the trigger pulled 8times to shoot without pumping or cocking or reloading. Most cops are better shots that your average pyscho. (not all of course) Cops are generally trained to take someone out in one to two shots. However, if someone as a machine gun or something of the sort then yes that cop better have a darn good shot. Personally, I would rather the teachers and staff have access to firearms if they are comfortable with them and are trained in using them. There is no 100% way to prevent this from happening because a criminal or a pyscho are going to get guns regardless of if they are legal or not.

While I understand the point being made that one officer is not enough, it is better than none. One officer on campus can radio in for help and get to the lunatic a lot faster than there not being anyone there. No matter what is done we'll never feel that it's "enough" to protect our children. I saw an awesome picture on Facebook yesterday that said:

STOP SCHOOL SHOOTINGS

Place three to four armed Veterans in every school. There are thousands of well trained, unemployed veterans who would love the job of protecting children.

I was completely like RIGHT ON!!! I'm a paycheck to paycheck kind of mom, but I wouldn't mind my taxes being raised a percentage point or two to fund this idea.

Can I have a like button please :)

To my understanding the school just had the buzzer security and that he shot through the doors. If a door is glass like some front doors at schools are then a buzzer is not going to stop someone from getting in. Some types of glass can be easily broken with a simple kick. Metal doors are harder to shoot through than glass. I, too, heard that he knew exactly what he was doing by destroying computers, taking the time to load that many rounds into multiple clips. While he may have had aspergers and other issues that is no escuse and he did not snap like was originally thought. I have an idea that we will soon learn that all this was carefully planned out but as to why mostlikely will never know since he was to much of a coward to face the music.

As to why this is happening well, I saw something on FB that was saying that all these shooting have one thing in common and that is anti-despressant type drugs. Granted this was FB and I have yet to investigate further but it would make sense. I have heard/read that some of these drugs bring on suicidal thoughts and actions so why wouldn't they make you turn pyscho... Just a thought of the posiblity as to way things are happening.

Our country is in trouble. My heart is still breaking for these families and now I am deciding if I want to send my children back to school. There is no need to argue with one another on these forums. Everyone is upset right now and arguing just makes it worse. Everyone has a right to his/her opinions, but please be respectful of one another.  As for officers in schools I just don't know. The school had a security system in place and yet this psycho was able to break in. I am glad Orange County put a plan in place for their school system as I am hearing there have been threats in high schools and middle schools. Why are people so angry?  The FBI is saying the loser in Sandy Hook  knew everything he was doing and had it all planned out. He knew enough to try and destroy all of the hard drives on the computers in his home. I just think that adding one officer in every school is not going to stop someone from breaking in and doing harm. My husband said our children should go to school as if something is going to happen we cannot stop it. I understand this, but I do not want my children in school. Right now everything is so confusing and I am upset and frustrated and struggling with what to do just like many of us. This world is scary.

i can't tell you how many commercials i have seen over various medications, and not just depression ones, these are ones for arthritis, allergies, male enhancements etc and if you listen to the very end where they got over the side effects, i'm blown away by them. A lot of them out there say "may have suicidal thoughts" or other insane side effects, it's like wow.. i think i might be better off with the problem, if i take this stuff i will reallllly be having issues.. it's nuts!
