The pacifist DC school is looking to a hire a Special Police Officer to cover the midnight shift, which is a busy time in school schedules, with the ability to interview suspects and witnesses, and glare intimidatingly at “those darn kids.”
Sidwell Friends will hire the Special Police Officer based on his diversity, with regard to his race, religion, economics, gender, sexual orientation, and physical disability. So any poor gay Eskimos in wheelchairs are especially encouraged to apply for the futile and irrational task of protecting a school… when we all know that school security does not work and it’s irrational to suggest that it does.
It’s unknown if Chris Christie’s Delbarton school utilizes armed guards. But the people who run things generally do not send their kids to public schools, for obvious reasons. They send them to secure facilities that screen the students that they do accept. And those same people are ridiculing the idea of making public schools secure by those same methods.
