HIALEAH, FLA. (WSVN) – It’s back to school for Miami-Dade County and officials have stepped up security, putting an emphasis on the safety of hundreds of thousands of students.
Every Miami-Dade school will be opening their doors Monday with an armed School Resource Officer or SRO.
“We are committed to provide more than 100 Miami-Dade Police Department officers,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez.
The School Board is bitching about money and how they had to scramble to get some more. And still, it seems that most of the schools will only be able to have just one School Resource Officer. If there was a cheaper way to add firepower in school, right? (end sarcasm)
And of course, the article so much as admits that before this year, there were schools without SROs. But we also knew that already, pretty much since Sandy Hook.
All in all, let’s hope that this helps future school shooters rethink and choose eating the gun rather than killing others.
