Newspaper Publishes Interactive Map Showing All Public Schools With No Security Officers (Iowa)
The Blaze ^ | Mar. 27, 2013 6:26pm | Mike Opelka

Posted on 03/27/2013 4:31:08 PM PDT by callthemlikeyouseethem

On Wednesday afternoon, the Des Moines Register published a map that shows which public schools in Iowa have no security.

(See Link for Map)

The graphic is also interactive. When you click on a specific dot, you are given very detailed information about the location of the school and if it has a security office on campus.

The regime is paving the way for another school massacre to FORWARD their agenda. Sometimes killing a country requires a little nudging.

Now that’s brilliant. My guess is the newspaper is in favor of schools having officers and those don’t have them now have no choice but to get some now that their security flaw has been exposed.

The Register’s five-member editorial board brought that same purpose and thoughtfulness to the table as it decided which candidate, President Barack Obama or Gov. Mitt Romney, should earn the newspaper’s endorsement.

By now, of course, you know that Romney won our endorsement.

The Des Moines Register is hard-core Stalinist-Leninist. Probably just an invitation for someone to shoot up a schol so they can trumpet gun control. Dead people are a small price to pay for a socialist workers’ paradise!

Iowa elected and re-elected Comrade Tom Harkin to Congress for decades. If they didn’t care about their country why should they worry about someone else’s children?

Another reason to have sanity tests for Democrats and liberals, and plenty of padded cells for them when they fail on the grounds that they present a “clear and present danger” to decent, sane people.

The news media want another shooter to murder people because it will further the socialist/statist agenda.

All the news media egg on potential mass shooters, promising them immortal world wide fame and glory if they would only murder innocents

the news media are pure evil democrats/socialists one and all of them or practically all of them

The media controls what people talk about and what they think about etc. the media is the main problem then the government

Easy Solution. And one that worked, 1921-1926, that's a lot less expensive, and a lot more professional, than hiring a couple of off-duty cops.

Then let's hope that a newspaper bullpen or TV station newsroom gets shot up instead. I suspect many in this country would cheer.

These people will have blood on their hands, and then blame us. The reaction to the school shooting was exactly the opposite of what it should have been.

So basically, the leftist media is hoping that another wacko will go in and murder a bunch MORE children....which will further and aid their leftist agenda to disarm Americans.

I think it’s past time for us to get that rope, tar and feathers. I can envision taking care of this increasing problem with our BARE HANDS.

If you read the article it talks about having an alternative to having an active duty police officer be your security detail at the school.

I can see the issue from both sides of the equation - I was an accounting director for a school district before I became a teacher.

From the accountant side, I can tell you that a police officer will cost you the officers salary plus uniform allowances, pension contribution, car allowance - or in other word upward of $75 to 80k per year. A security guard, who is an employee of the disrict would only cost $40 to 45K fully loaded rate per year. The security officers have the ability to arrest and detail students and intruders, as well as carry guns. It is more financially responsible.

From the teacher side (in an inner city high school) I saw situations where security and police presence were paid more than teachers - how pathetic was that. I was nice to have security there at all times, but felt too much like a prison.

Thank God for the Cathoic high school who hired me out of the mess. We have no security or police presence AND we don’t need one. Now that is teaching is supposed to be like.

But, an armed security person, an employee of G4, formerly Wackenhut, would be much cheaper and cost no benefits.

If this results in unguarded schools finally getting their acts together, great. If the worst happens, it’ll mean so many lawsuits the ‘news’paper folds.

Every time their principles are used to further a movement, millions wind up dead. China, Russia, Cambodia, East Germany, Laos, Cuba, VietNam, Bulgaria, North Korea, Romania, Ethiopia, Hungary, Zimbabwe... a handful of children is nothing compared to a quarter billion souls in the past 90 years.

No, it doesn’t have to cost an arm and leg. I know of several schools in our area who gave the Sheriff a room near the front door of the school. The Sheriff stations his day shift on-duty deputy in that school “office”. The deputy has to be at his desk anyway, so he is there doing his work and keeping an armed presence for the school. No added expense, except maybe an extra phone line.

(Editor Rick) Green told Fox News Channel that the map was only on the paper's website for 20 minutes, after which it was taken down amid an avalanche of angry phone calls. "My team alerted me to it, and we took it down," Green said.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/03/28/newspaper-under-fire-for-publishing-interactive-map-iowa-school-lacking/#ixzz2OsMmmAVX

Yeah... Editor, who OK'd your newspaper's publishing that map? I think the citizens should know WHO in your newspaper decided to put their children's lives at risk for an extra couple readers? And did you review the story and uploading the map? Who in your "team" was alerted to the map and realized it was a stupid-ass thing to do and notified you of the disaster you either didn't know about, or had originally approved?

Editor Green?
