When were we ranting about this? Was it uhhh.... YESTERDAY! Yes it was, and today APS faced a situation where a former student showed up drunk and supposedly armed at La Cueva High School (ABQ Tribune). APS police were called in and authorized by Superintendent Beth Everitt to take their weapons into the school while students and teachers were locked down.
Right now thanks to the geniuses on the school board, the APS policy states that even the Chief of APS police doesn't have the authority to authorize officers to remove their weapons from their trunks. It's STOOOPID to have unarmed officers in the first place but to make things even STUPIDER, the person who makes the decision to arm officers is an administrator. Leaves us wondering who the heck is running this circus?
APS dodged a bullet today and so did the students, parents, and administrators that were present at La Cueva, the perpetrator was unarmed... this time. Just for your information, the school board members who voted against protecting our kids are Paula Maes, Dolores Griego, Berna Facio, and Robert Lucero. You might want to remember their names if it's one of your kids that ends up dead.
