Schools Have Banned Police from the Premises to Appease BLM. This Has Resulted in Violence.

Chasten Buttplug snarked that the GOP's only proposal for limiting gun violence was "locking the doors."


It's the guns.
OK, we'll ban the drag queens.
No, it's the guns.
OK, we'll make sure to lock the doors. https://t.co/euSy5RC5Jb

How about having police on the school grounds?

Oh no, you can't do that -- that upsets the key Democrat constituency of criminals who want to commit crimes without being hassled by police about their lifestyle choices.

Townhall's Mia Cathell has a long and detailed report on what happened to school districts which removed police from the premises, to appease the riot, arson, and looting supporters of BLM.

Two years after a high school in Denver, Colorado, removed all law enforcement officers from school grounds based on the belief that arresting "Black and Brown students for minor school infractions" perpetuates the "school-to-prison pipeline," a black gunman, who was an expelled student, shot two school administrators Wednesday. Sadly, it's a disturbing yet predictable trend we're seeing in schools across America that have rid themselves of on-campus police to appease Black Lives Matter activists.

Note that this article is from last week.

Denver Public Schools--Colorado

As Julio covered, during the height of the violent BLM-Antifa riots, the Denver Public Schools Board of Education passed a resolution in June 2020 that eliminated the presence of all school resource officers (SRO), a unanimous 7 - 0 vote that ended its contract with the Denver Police Department and nixed all SRO positions within a year, over concerns that the "outsourcing of school discipline to police disproportionately impacts Black and Brown students." According to the SRO Transition Project's report, the resolution was driven by the district's "commitment to dismantle racism and become an anti-racist organization."

The board's vice president Auon'tai M. Anderson, who introduced the resolution, celebrated its passage. "WE DID IT!" Anderson tweeted. "#BlackLivesMatter." In a recent Medium article, titled "Removing SROs from Schools: A Step Towards Justice and Safety for Students of Color," Anderson asserted on Feb. 16: "While there have been concerns about the safety and well-being of students, it's important to acknowledge the negative impacts that SROs can have on students, particularly students of color."

Now, two armed officers will be stationed at Denver East High School for the remainder of the academic year in the wake of Wednesday's double shooting that injured two deans. DPS Superintendent Alex Marrero sent a letter addressed to the school board, informing its members that at least one armed cop will also be posted at each of the district's comprehensive high schools.

The city's Democrat mayor agreed and "strongly" backed Marrero's move. In a statement posted to social media, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock admitted the decision to do away with SROs was "a mistake" and that "we must move swiftly to correct it."


Shortly after, the board issued a response, saying it supports the police's return for the rest of this school year.

17-year-old Austin Lyle was identified as the shooter who wounded the pair of faculty members, leaving one in "serious condition" following surgery. Lyle was under "a safety plan" that was specifically designed for him to be patted down each day before entering the school, but during the daily search Wednesday, the student pulled out a weapon, shot the two deans, and fled. As Matt pointed out, the now-deceased black suspect's race is actively being omitted from the mainstream media's coverage.

...

This week marked the second shooting at Denver East High School, which is reportedly shaken by frequent lockdowns and violence, in the span of weeks. Last month, a 16-year-old classmate was shot dead in his car outside of the school on Feb. 13. Two teens--both DPS students--have been arrested, per KDVR. The slain student's brother is speaking out on Wednesday's shooting, asserting that the removal of police begets gun violence. "It could have been avoided if there was a cop there to prevent anything like this from happening or at least just scare the people that are committing crimes like these," the victim's sibling said.

Cathell next looks at the Woke removal of police from the Alexandria City Public Schools in Virginia.

In the summer of 2021, the Alexandria City Council voted to end the decades-old SRO program at Alexandria City Public Schools and reallocate police funding towards "mental health resources." By the fall of that year, the city council reversed course, approving the temporary reinstatement of police in school hallways. "Our students are sending us warning shots, literal warning shots," Alexandria City High School's principal Peter Balas said at the council meeting. "My staff, the students--we're not okay."

Before the reversal, the 2021 academic year was marred by a wave of violent incidents, including the triggering of an ACHS lockdown when a student was found in possession of a handgun, an all-out brawl inside the ACHS cafeteria, which was captured on cellphone camera, just two days after school started, and a fight inside George Washington Middle School. The recording of the GWMS melee was posted by a since-deleted Instagram account, "gwmsfights2022," dedicated to posting student fights.

She continues examining the shootings at Woke School Districts after they removed the police and trusted the Gods of BLM to protect them.

I'm sure Chasten Buttplug will be leading the movement to re-install school resource officers back in schools. After all, he cares so much about the children that he wants to do anything to protect them.

By the way: the left has essentially stopped the police from charging its protected classes with crimes, claiming this leads to the "school to prison pipeline."

But not charging criminals with crimes has another result: Those criminals are legally allowed to purchase guns.

The left has installed a Crime to Gun Ownership pipeline.

But they don't want to talk about that. They don't want to talk about charging criminals appropriately so that their felony records prevent them from buying guns legally.

No, they just want to take guns away from lawful, responsible gun owners.

Because those are Republicans.

So let the Democrats -- the criminals -- buy all the guns they want.

Just take them away from the law-abiding Republicans.

Will Democrats ever admit that their plan to "fight crime" by just making crime legal is a failure?

One Democrat, who previously campaigned for effectively legalizing theft, is now trying to cover up for having done so.

Nevada attorney general Aaron Ford says the state's rising retail theft rates must be curbed. He should know--in 2019, the Democrat testified in support of a law that made it harder for prosecutors to jail retail thieves.

Ford on March 2 presented a bill that would allow his office to "investigate and prosecute organized retail theft crimes." The measure, Ford said, is "necessary" given the rise in retail theft crimes seen in Nevada--last year, for example, the state saw a 15 percent increase in property crimes and a staggering 39 percent increase in drug-store thefts on the Las Vegas Strip. While Ford used the bill as proof he's mounting a proactive push to reverse that trend, critics say he's to blame for the problem in the first place.

That's because Ford in 2019 emerged as a vocal supporter of Assembly Bill 236, a Democrat-led measure that overhauled Nevada's criminal justice system. Included in the bill--which Ford said his office was "intimately involved in"--was a provision that raised the threshold for felony theft from $650 worth of stolen goods to $1,200. As a result, a criminal who steals $1,000 worth of goods, for example, can no longer be charged with a category D felony, which carries a standard sentence of at least a year in jail. Instead, that criminal is now charged with misdemeanor larceny, a charge prosecutors often agree to dismiss if the thief pays a fine and attends an online training program.

Better Nevada PAC, a political group associated with the state's Republican governor, Joe Lombardo, accused Ford of "desperately trying to cover up his pro-criminal agenda."

"He's spent his entire political career decriminalizing serious crimes and trying the hands of law enforcement," spokesman John Burke said. "He simply can't hide from the truth."

Ford, whose office did not return a request for comment, is no stranger to controversy when it comes to theft laws. During his time as a state senator, Ford said he "can't speak to what larceny even means, frankly." Ford was also arrested for theft in 1994, though the case was eventually dismissed after the Democrat paid restitution to a tire shop owner he stiffed. The Republican Attorneys General Association highlighted both those instances in a 2018 ad campaign.

Ford became Nevada's attorney general in 2019, a year that also saw Democrats take full control of the state legislature for the first time in decades. The party prioritized criminal justice reform, proposing sweeping changes through Assembly Bill 236, which passed the Nevada Assembly's judiciary committee via a party-line vote in May 2019. The bill's sponsor, liberal state legislator Steve Yeager (D.), defended the legislation's felony theft changes, calling the threshold at the time "very low."

"Your average iPhone is going to be $1,200. So if you take an iPhone, you are looking at having a felony," Yeager said at the time. "So we looked at adjusting those levels."

Free Obamaphones for everyone. Just take them if you don't feel like paying.
