This.

Would be surprised if there weren't some cronyism, kickbacks, laundering, etc of some funds. That whole county's system is suspect after seeing some of the articles about the place.

How horrible!

Obviously those teachers will now be tempted to mercilessly beat their students to death now that they're armed with bludgeoning weapons.

Ya know.. because weapons force their owners to kill other people. Everyone knows it.

Oh, the humanity!

:P

Pound a few big spikes through it and you would not want to be the guy with the gun if 4 or 5 teachers are rushing you...

From the man who said this:




the union representing more than half his own deputies is now holding a "no-confidence vote" on his leadership abilities:

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel to face no-confidence vote from his own deputies


Quote:
"The move follows many instances of suspected malfeasance ... and the lack of leadership that has crushed morale throughout the agency," the announcement from the deputies association says.

Bell says the historic move is due to the dysfunction of the office, which has been piling up for years. But it was Israel's behavior after the school shooting that left 17 people dead that pushed the rank and file over the edge, he says. Especially when Israel swiftly blamed school resource officer Scot Peterson for not entering the building and stopping the shooter.

UMC announces memorial for Parkland Middle School boy struck and killed

Posted: Apr 21, 2018 03:05 PM MDT

Updated: Apr 21, 2018 03:05 PM MDT

EL PASO, Texas - University Medical Center has announced a memorial for the Parkland Middle School student struck and killed Friday.

Police say 11-year-old Jonathan Benko was taking part in Parkland Middle School's organized walkout when he and a group of students left the designated walkout area. Police say around 10:30 Friday morning, the group crossed Loop 375 then attempted to cross it again. Benko was the last in the group to cross and was struck by a Ford F150.

Benko sustained serious injuries and was taken to UMC where he died.


Officials say Benko's mother works as a Registered Nurse in UMC's Emergency Department and his uncle, Michael Benko, is also an employee at UMC, where he works as a Respiratory Therapist.

“All of us at UMC are heartbroken by the loss of a child belonging to one of our Associates, especially a child as young as Jonathan,” said Jacob Cintron, UMC President & CEO. “As a father, I can only imagine how hard this must be for Ashley and her family. She is also one of our family at UMC. Our support, thoughts and prayers are with her and her family throughout this difficult time.”

The UMC Foundation has set up a memorial fund in Benko's honor. Contributions to the family can be made by check here:

UMC Foundation
C/O Jonathan Benko Fund
1400 Hardaway, Ste. 220
El Paso, TX, 79903

Contributions paid online can be made HERE.

Mt. Carmel Funeral Home has agreed to donate funeral services to the family.


Some questions that come to mind:
--- Did the student's parent's give prior permission (via permission slips) to allowing their child to participate in this "organized" event?
--- How did these students manage to leave the designated walkout area? Was there a lack of adequate supervision?


My condolences to the parents and family of the student.
