DARRIN PORCHER: This is a very unfortunate narrative, しかしながら, it keeps repeating itself — it’s somewhat repetitive. As modern-day law enforcement, we’re really great on the response, しかしながら, the problem that we have is fortification and omnipresence on soft targets such as this school… The school resource officers on many occasions are not equipped with firearms for these elementary schools. That needs to change. The dynamic of these 銃乱射事件 is becoming more and more prevalent in our society, しかしながら, we have our elected officials that come on television, they jump up and down, but there is no execution strategy because we have a flawed purpose in how we protect these elementary schools.
It goes back to why did we not have a police officer, meaning an armed resource officer, at the front of this school? When we look at a lot of these mass shootings that have happened in many places throughout the country, it’s the same thing. Oftentimes bad guys will go the other way when they see a good guy with a gun in front of a school. だが, at the same token we still don’t get it. I’m not saying that we need to arm these schools with Sherman tanks, だが, at the same token, we need to understand the narrative of our school system is not being protected the way it should be. 残念ながら, this is an example of how it manifests when we are unprepared.
