President proposes $60 million to put COPS in schools [Darleen Click]

That would be President Bill Clinton in 2000 on the one-year Columbine anniversary

Clinton also unveiled the $60-million fifth round of funding for “COPS in School,” a Justice Department program that helps pay the costs of placing police officers in schools to help make them safer for students and teachers. The money will be used to provide 452 officers in schools in more than 220 communities.

“Already, it has placed 2,200 officers in more than 1,000 communities across our nation, where they are heightening school safety as well as coaching sports and acting as mentors and mediators for kids in need,” Clinton said.

h/t John Nolte who adds

Today, the same elite media who no doubt send their own kids to private schools that employ armed security, just can’t stop howling ridicule at the NRA’s idea to give every student in America those same protections. Because the NRA’s idea is so appealing, as I write this, the media’s going overboard, mocking it as bizarre, crazy, and out of touch.

This is how the media works to silence and vilify the opposition and to ensure that only their ideas control The Narrative. The media doesn’t care about securing our schools; they only care about coming after our guns and handing Obama another political win.

The media also doesn’t care how wildly hypocritical they look.

Well, duh.

  1. Israeli schools were targets for Palestinian terrorists. So they trained some teachers, not identified to the public, to have access to weapons and be trained to use them. Since the terrorists could not easily tell who was armed, the attacks on schools declined dramatically. They were no longer an easy target.

    And such a plan is relatively inexpensive to implement. But that would be way too pragmatic.

    Ramirez on protecting children…

  2. – I had this convo thread over at HP on their “Gun control narrative for blood” post:

    Citizen Cain (Me)
    – In keeping with the ongoing hypocricy of the Progressives: “Flashback: Clinton Requests $60 Million to Put Cops in Schools?”…..Why yes, yes he did.

    – Has the Left spent enough time yet, in lockstep with fearless leader, dipping their hands in the blood of dead Children to advance a political agenda. Why no, apparently they haven’t.


    Shouldn’t you be in a bunker somewhere snuggle with your harmless guns?

    This is a silly and mean thing to say, designed, no diubt, to make sure a productive discussion will not go on. Nice work.

    Do not delete that post, we need to see what our right thinking citizens are saying so we can shout them down.

    Citizen Cain
    – Of course, because all adults understand that the way to have a “productive discussion” is to first agree to talk about anything but the real source of a social problem, and if anyone dares to point our errors shout them down. Nice work.

    I’ll talk to anyone who is responsible. His shout was not an invitation to dialog, it was a statement.

    (I have no idea WTF thats supposed to mean so I pressed on)

    Citizen Cain
    So then you agree with Clinton….disagree…..none of the above?

    Ezekiel 2517
    I have a different question, did a republican congress agree to his idea, or did they kill it off quietly. Guard our schools, sure, we have to protect our kids from mom’s who buy assault rifles and don’t lock them up from her adult children.

    – So then, when cornered with no place to hide, they break down and tacitly admit the “narrative” is a load of politically motivated crap.

  3. Ah, the old ‘I don’t want to answer your question, so I’ll ask you a different question and then refuse to listen to the answer I don’t want to hear’ gambit.

    I don’t know how you can stand it over there, but thanks for taking one for the team, BBH.

  4. – WHAM 1650 am, right above the police calls on your dial kids…… We tape off the air so you don’t have to!

    (If you’ll excuse me, I need to shower. I always feel so grubby after a few minutes in the crystal echo chamber.)

  5. As I recall reading recently, Clinton’s plan was implemented, but the funding was axed years later.

    By Obama.

    I don’t know whether that’s true and accurate, but it should be look-up-able to anyone who values truth and accuracy over political correctness.

    Which is why your interlocutor “Ezekiel” will never find out.
