Quote of the Day: No Exceptions Edition

“You always find yourself with this need to help, when there is a need and to not have your weapon in times of crisis. Knowing that there is someone that is in danger; It’s difficult.” – Curtis Graves, Mobile County Public Schools security resource officer.

    I guess they do it differently in Mobile. When I was in high school, our SRO was a deputy sheriff… badge, gun, uniform, the works. Deputy Rowe came to my school when I was in eighth grade, and he was still there when I graduated in ’94. Of course, that was a long time ago, maybe they don’t do that there anymore either.

      At my local high school we have a deputy sherriff’s officer as a security officer.

        When I was in high school (not so long ago – Class of ’93), the very idea of putting an armed policeman in every school would have caused a revolt.*

        * There was no American Idol or Dancing With the Stars to keep the populace pacified in those days.

    Back in my day, we had guns in the shop classes, the cars, the rifle range, the history classes; and nobody cared.
