Re: Gun Control Legislation

CNN invited a man who used to be the head of a SWAT team. I can't remember his name, sorry. He said that on average a police officer can shoot at a paper target at about an 80% accuracy. During an active shooter incident where the target is shooting back at you, it goes down to 18%. This is for a S...

Re: Another Shooting

This is sounding more and more like a failure of training for the Broward SO. If that turns out to be the case, the Sheriff is the one ultimately responsible for that failure no matter how many people he fires.

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

I was thinking the police would pay the costs, not the school. As for space, not a classroom, more along the lines of an office. Obviously, its not a fleshed out idea. It's not a bad idea, but it's been tried here with satellite offices, and for a variety of reasons only lasted maybe 2 years at mos...

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

I have long had an idea. Every cop spends a lot of their time sitting at a desk filling out paperwork. Why not open up in schools satellite police stations. Give them a room, a few desks and computers etc... that they need to do administrative work they're currently doing at the station, and thus m...

Re: Another Shooting

I have a possibly very naive question, but why are AR-15 guns considered less dangerous than regular guns? I make this assumption because someone can buy one without any waiting period (at least in Florida, as I now know) whereas there is a wait time for 'ordinary' guns. I don't think the AR-15s sh...

Re: Another Shooting

Several articles I've seen have said the "school resource officer" is eligible to retire, which leads me to believe he's probably an older man. I've also noticed that I've never seen him referred to as an actual deputy, but simply as an employee of the SO. Here, until the school system established t...

A theatre facebook friend just re-posted a meme purporting to show that David Hogg is a "crisis actor" and I just can't deal. The kid was allegedly interviewed on the news for something last summer in California, so that apparently proves he's not really a student in Florida but a crisis actor (bec...
