Cops in schools are a bad, bad idea [View all]

In my early adolescence, I attended a reasonably tough junior high school in New York City. There was an armed cop or a guard, I forget which, at the school.

One day, a kid with issues somehow snagged the gun and much fun ensued. Fortunately the boy was talked out of shooting his science teacher.

Cops or guards with guns in schools will be mighty bored. Bad things will happen.

This is why I call guns "shit multipliers". Add a gun to any bad shit - bad kids, angry or suicidal people, whatever - and you just multiply the shit. Let's keep shit multipliers out of schools.
