(CNN)When students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas return to class after spring break next week, they’ll be required to carry clear backpacks.
The move is meant to ramp up security measures after last month’s deadly shooting in Parkland, Florida, and a series of breaches since.
“Clear backpacks are the only backpacks that will be permitted on campus,” said Broward County School Superintendent Robert Runcie said in a letter sent to parents.
The district will provide the bags for free, he said.
In addition to the new backpack policy, students and school staff will be required to wear IDs at all times while on campus.
The school district is weighing whether to use metal-detecting wands at Stoneman Douglas entrances, and could move to install permanent metal detectors in the future.
But the students are unhappy because that is not what the handlers programmed in their little heads full of mush. I screen capped the quote because it is one for the ages:
Some students have said they’re not happy with the changes.
Tyra Hemans, 19, a senior, told CNN she supports parts of the new policy, such as the ID requirement. But she believes other security measures, such as forcing students to carry clear backpacks, don’t adequately address the real problem with school safety, which she says is lax gun laws.
“I’m not happy with it. Why are you punishing me for one person’s actions?” she said.
Maybe we should send Ms. Hemans a free NRA membership so she can join the club as we are all veterans of being blamed for stuff we did not do.
