Lucas County Sheriff self serving on schools

Postby bignflnut » Mon Sep 10, 2018 8:57 am

After news surfaced that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is contemplating whether to allow states to use federal money to purchase guns for educators, local officials cautioned against such measures, emphasizing the importance of entrusting trained law enforcement officers.

"I don't like the idea of arming educators and putting that responsibility on them,” Lucas County Sheriff John Tharp said. “I think we ought to be arming our law enforcement officers and putting law enforcement in schools. I would say create more monies to have more school resource officers in the schools.

“If we had additional officers, not only are they providing safety and security, but they could be educating our children on things like drug and opioid addiction.”

You want to tap into the school budgets to grow your forces? No kidding? You think that's the best way to address the problem, and you want the drug war to be in the schools? Ya want MOAR DARE? Do you have any snake oil to sell me?

OF COURSE you don't like the idea of arming non-LEOs. OF COURSE you don't want people to be responsible for themselves. This justifies your bloated budget and keeps you in demand.

This is the sheriff who's deputies released the wrong prisoner from the jail a couple months ago. Yeah, he runs a real tight ship.

It's Toledo. What do you expect?
