We're seeing what some are calling a marked increase in the media coverage of violence in our country. How refreshing would it be to see more articles and activities like this?

Quote:
Based on what I see in public schools all across America, I'm happy to report that decency, humanity and goodness are still alive and well among our young people. The perpetrators of violence may have a stranglehold on the national consciousness, but they still represent only a minority. The headlines, thank goodness, are in no way reflective of reality.

This post is neither for, nor against, arming appropriate personnel on school campuses. However, given the fact that some school districts nationwide are considering doing this, this article couldn't be more timely. There are also embedded links to other related information within this article, as well.

It behooves all of us to be more informed and, hence, educated on how best to approach this potentially controversial "solution' to a problem some are also saying is a solution in search of a problem that warrants the inherent risks that ultimately go along with it.

That's not to say, by any stretch of the imagination, that active shooter threats are non-existent. Not at all. Not even close. But, as is pointed out in the information contained in this story, threat assessment requirements of implementing such a program at any and all schools must be an integral part of the planning and implementation process of any such program beforehand -- not during, and especially not following.
