How have schools with police been going? Well you will not be surprised, as I sure wasn’t when it started. I knew it was a gangs way to increase income. Now all you sheep learn what is happening now!
Now for the police in school’s for all of those with kids as this old man will tell it exactly as it is after checking other states with cops in the schools. I have discovered as many parents have that this policing is not exactly doing as it was suppose to. The gang of blue mjust discovered another means of revenue for paying up keep on their gang headquarters or club houses. There called police and sheriff stations by these gang members. I would not be so down if it wasn’t for so many of these kids minds are being destroyed by the bad members of these gangs. Oh I found some schools that were fair and they had really good officers there. But, it’s more for the money than anything with these kids lives being destroyed later in life if they don’t pay to have their records closed. But, I am just the bearer of news that you won’t hear on the news, take it as you wish! All my are grown!

Finally, the connection is made between our prisons and schools. Our local high school functions more like a correctional facility, even without a police presence. Minor issues are treated severely with relentless suspensions and detentions. There is no attempt at problem solving minor issues and helping kids work through their problems. Many kids, especially boys, repeatedly punished and rejected by their “learning institutions” are initiated onto the path from school to prison.

schools where officers are already stationed: a surge in criminal charges against children for misbehavior that many believe is better handled in the principal’s office.
Since the early 1990s, thousands of districts, often with federal subsidies, have paid local police agencies to provide armed “school resource officers” for high schools, middle schools and sometimes even elementary schools.

Yet the most striking impact of school police officers so far, critics say, has been a surge in arrests or misdemeanor charges for essentially nonviolent behavior — including scuffles, truancy and cursing at teachers — that sends children into the criminal courts.
There is no evidence that placing officers in the schools improves safety,
Nationwide, hundreds of thousands of students are arrested or given criminal citations at schools each year. A large share are sent to court for relatively minor offenses, with black and Hispanic students and those with disabilities disproportionately affected, according to recent reports from civil rights groups, including the Advancement Project, in Washington, and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, in New York.
“You have to differentiate the security issue and the discipline issue,” he said. “Once the kids get involved in the court system, it’s a slippery slope downhill.”
The good officers recognize the difference between a scuffle and a true assault,
Many judges say school police officers are too quick to make arrests or write tickets.
