I agree! We do not need

I agree! We do not need police officers at the elementary schools because of one horrible incident. The police officers will be sitting in an office most of the day wasting tax payer dollars. I think the schools are making a hasty decision and need to think this through.

Why waste taxpayers money?

Why should they do that? All the deputy ever does at our school is sit in the corner and play on the school computer or her phone. The principal says that orders from the sheriff are to "NOT" give the SRO any duties on campus. She gets paid time and a half to work ballgames, but I don't even get any comp time for the hours I spend in concession stands at guard stations. SRO's are a joke. They get paid to hang out and do nothing! Ours would probably not recognize a danger if she saw one.

Hey smart guy, you say they

Hey smart guy,
you say they are wasting time sitting there,did you ever stop to think they are just on call anyway weather it be at school or in a patrol car whats the difference? I for one would much rather they wait for a call at the school than ride around in a car waiting for a call.

I agree with you 100

I agree with you 100 percent. They are worthless.

Really? Tell us how you really feel.
