But get rid of the safety officers in schools, they said Makes kids nervous to see a protection officer in school, they said. It is lucky that student will survive-Only a matter of time before something worse will happen because liberals prefer a social worker to a trained responder inside schools.

You’re a huge contributing factor in this incident. You are the ones who voted to take SROs from school and leave discipline completely up to administrators. Police are banned from school grounds unless summoned. The blood of the victim is on your hands.
