Some pretty smart cookies:
however when their union negotiates do they ask for any of this or just more money? Teachers get paid around $25 an hour,, not great not bad tho when adding their hours up they are actually part time, the get some of the best benefits thanks to their union. oh wait,, my parents are retired teachers they have received retirement for longer than they worked,, nice.
as far as up against a ar15,,, i would rather go down trying rather than hiding,, I would rather go down knowing i tried to save someone.
What bothers me is people trying to make the deputy the villain. He had everything to lose and the little twerp with the assault rifle couldn't have cared less. The deputy can now go on to help countless others. Isn't that better than being dead?
He took to job and the pay to protect the students and he didn't; I don't know how he can live with that knowledge.
They're now saying that while this deputy stood at the corner of the building, three others were "hiding" behind a sheriff's vehicle. Aren't they worse that this man who at least radioed in what was happening? Apparently county officers were waiting for city police. Maybe SWAT?
So, an armed force of trained officers stood by and waited. And the Republican reply is to train teachers and expect more from them than the support provided by police officers. You can't make this stuff up.
Here's something else you can't make up:
How an Assistant Principal With a Gun Stopped a School Shooter
Assistant Principal Joel Myrick chased Woodham down outside the school, held him at bay with a Colt .45-caliber automatic pistol he kept in his truck in the school parking lot. He forced Woodham to the ground and put his foot on the youth's neck. "I think he's a coward," Myrick said. "I had my weapon pointed at his face, and he didn't want to die."
A teacher in Utah accidentally shot herself in the leg Thursday inside an elementary school building.
Just before 9 a.m., Michelle Ferguson-Montgomery accidentally discharged her gun while using a faculty restroom at Westbrook Elementary School in Taylorsville, the principal said in a letter to students’ parents. The incident occurred before school hours, and no children nor staff were present. The teacher was in legal possession of her gun on school property.
Yep, Arm teachers. Why not.
What could have stopped this woman? Oh, yeah, an electronic door. No guns needed.
