Change of Topic: Police Officer Told Not to Wear Uniform When Picking Up Child at Arizona School... Because of Fears that the Uniform Suggests He's Carrying a Gun

No, you're not hysterical at all, and would not simply be deemed neurotic and then heavily medicated in any other age.

A police officer who dropped off his daughter at her Phoenix elementary school was asked by the school’s principal not to wear his uniform to the school because other parents were concerned that he was carrying a gun, MyFoxPhoenix.com reported.

Scott Urkov is a police officer for the Coolidge Police Department. The department told him not to comment to media inquiries, but immediately after he received the no-uniform request, he posted on Facebook.

"Nothing like your kids school calling and asking if I could not come to pick up my daughter in uniform cause parents were concerned when their kids came home telling them there was a man at school with a gun, “ he posted. “Are you freaking kidding me?"

...

A district spokeswoman told the station that "some parents" voiced concern about seeing a fully armed police officer on the school’s campus. The spokeswoman apologized that Urkov perhaps took the discussion the wrong way.

"It was not the intent of the principal to offend him," the spokeswoman said.

Yes yes yes yes yes. He took it the wrong way. It's on him. He didn't understand your intent. He's got the problem; not you.

Of course you don't have a problem. Hysteria is not only natural, it's preferable.

Shall we ban Cowboy Hats next? I mean: Cowboys. They carry six-shooters.
