1. Part of his "1,000,000 more cops" included officers in school, I think through D.A.R.E.

D.A.R.E. was the rubric under which my high school had police officers in it in the 90s, at any rate.

2. I'm afraid I can't help debunk it...

...because it's true. Here's a link to a LA Times/AP article from April of 2000:

http://articles.latimes.com/2000/apr/16/news/mn-20323


Relevant excerpt:

Clinton also unveiled the $60-million fifth round of funding for "COPS in School," a Justice Department program that helps pay the costs of placing police officers in schools to help make them safer for students and teachers. The money will be used to provide 452 officers in schools in more than 220 communities.

"Already, it has placed 2,200 officers in more than 1,000 communities across our nation, where they are heightening school safety as well as coaching sports and acting as mentors and mediators for kids in need," Clinton said.


Not sure what to make of this. Bill Clinton remains one of my political heroes...but he was not immune to poor judgement. Er...obviously.

9. This appears to be an intervention strategy for

communities already deemed highrisk for school violence. I don't see how adding a policy that prohibits the general public's access to the most lethal weapons and munitions is inconsistent with Clinton's previous policy.

4. Clinton also wanted to go after

bin Laden. Luckily the republicans stopped him on that one.

6. So what?

What if Clinton did say it? Does it mean that all Democrats are now forbidden to ask for a different policy? Unlike Republicans, we can change our minds if other facts come to light or circumstances change.

8. So what?

Clinton can say dumb things, and Democrats are not required to agree.
That is, if this is even true.

Edit: hadn't noticed Sanity Claws. Well, great minds think alike, apparently.
