need to be legally required to undergo mental illness screenings focusing especially on neurosis and hoplophobia.
So says Ace; I'm thinking he's right.
A police officer who dropped off his daughter at her Phoenix elementary
school was asked by the school’s principal not to wear his uniform to
the school because other parents were concerned that he was carrying a
gun, MyFoxPhoenix.com reported.
What The Hell?
A district spokeswoman told the station that "some parents" voiced
concern about seeing a fully armed police officer on the school’s
campus. The spokeswoman apologized that Urkov perhaps took the
discussion the wrong way.
"It was not the intent of the principal to offend him," the spokeswoman said.
You just told a cop you don't want him around the school in uniform; however could he take that the 'wrong way'?
And 'offend'? What the hell else is it but an offense against intelligence, reason and plain friggin' common sense?
Meanwhile, school officials' initial reaction was to ask the officer not
to wear his gun and uniform to school, they are now saying they want to
turn this incident into "a teachable moment."
The only way this could be teachable would be to say "Hey, dumbasses: cops carry guns. They're THE PEOPLE YOU CALL FOR HELP WHEN YOU NEED SOMEONE WITH A GUN. So shut the hell up and deal with it, you self-centered hoplophobic morons."
