Leaders of a Los Angeles teachers union said Monday that they support a movement to eliminate the Los Angeles School Police Department, with the funds instead used to help support the mental health of students, according to a report.

The law enforcement agency has about 410 police officers that serve the L.A. Unified School District, which enrolls more than 600,000 students. It accounts for roughly $70 million of the district’s $7.9 billion budget.

“We have to dismantle white supremacy. We must ... defund the police and bring in the mental health services that our students need,” said Cecily Myart-Cruz, the incoming president of United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA), according to the Los Angeles Times.

The teachers clearly require mental health services.

This is an important matter. So it should be put to a membership vote. But of course it won’t.

The mental health of students???? WTF???

Black parents - usually just a mother - need to start PARENTING their effing offspring.

Damn I’m getting tired of the 10-13% of America - and the mental bottom of the world - dictating what the rest of us do!!! It’s like having a school classroom that learns at the speed of the special needs students, regardless of the intelligence of the rest.

All men are created equal, but your eventual position in life is determined by each persons efforts, not their damn skin tone.

Of course. Let them. Who will protect the teachers when one of their precious snowflake gang banging students goes on a rampage in the classroom? Quick. call the mental health counselor. They are the first to dive under the desk and hide.....

Pump the kids full of Ritalin, Xanax, and Prozac to "treat" their mental health issues and keep them docile. What happens when those pill-zombies come to skool with guns and start shooting people?

Sure it will. Next time you’ve got a Columbine situation just call the guidance councillor and mental health professional.
The only reason they need the mental health professional is because ov the the $hit you tried to pump into the kids’ heads.

More laws to take guns away from the handful of remaining normal people.

Remove the police only after you remove the gang banger ghetto-ite students.

Knee jerk reaction. They demanded that the schools needed armed police on campus to protect the “children” from a mass school shooter, but you couldn’t arm the teachers or staff because they aren’t properly trained and screened for psychological problems.

Now, let’s remove the armed police from our schools and leave the “children” unprotected. Maybe the school dietician can disarm the next school shooter by offering him a free pizza.

Kinda a bit of a fun time to be a LAUSD employee, I would suspect. Kick the police out just when California law forbids suspending or expelling students up to the 8th grade (12th grade in a couple years.)

This will work out just fine...

Those teacher probably feel u n c o m f o r t a b l e with law enforcement being able to be around and know them and their business and behavior.

We had no cops in the halls when I went to school. I don’t think cops and school go together.
