OPED by Ed Vincent on School Violence
If children are to be allowed to have a free public education they should also be allowed to be safe where they get their education. A step in the right direction helping to guarantee that safety in schools would be to have an armed police officer as part of the staff in every school in the country.
To do this in Oak Park would require approximately an additional tax burden of $10 per person each year.
These acts of violence are performed by crazies, and driven by motivations of irrational actions. There are too many of these occurring in the world today and the only reasonable way to increase safety is to have police in the buildings with the children and it should be thought of as like seat belts in cars, a necessity.
