LAPD Chief Wants Patrols at All LAUSD K-8 Schools Daily

Chief Charlie Beck says Sunday that he wants every kindergarten, elementary and middle school to get a visit from an LAPD officer each day.

Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said Sunday he plans to ensure LAPD officers patrol all kindergarten, elementary and middle schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District each day.

Beck said it will require additional training and may require a combination of assignments and voluntary "adoptions," reported the KNBC4 Web site.

Beck said he hopes to have a plan in place by the time classes begin on Jan. 7 after winter break.

Beck said he would announce further details on Monday.

He also he had been talking with LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy and LAUSD police Chief Steven K. Zipperman about the logistics.

"I'm going to use all 10,000 LA police officers to make sure every K-5, every middle school in LA gets visited at least once a day by an LA police officer," Beck is quoted by KNBC as saying.

I think every kid should never leave the house unless they are a bullet proof protective bubble with wheels. Also every kid should have an armed guard 24/7. Police should be stationed at every house. It's just too risky now. In the mean time we should continue to bomb the crap out of other countries and support places like Israel that routinely kill women and children. Americans are just to precious to lose while poor people in the world don't even have the right to live. Hooray American, in god we trust.

Lynette, you are a lunatic. Please read what you wrote and ask some one you trust to explain how retarded it is. Meantime stop thinking, go back to watching soap operas and eating rice cakes.

FIRST I AGREE WITH WHAT DAISEN SAID. CRAZY PEOPLE WILL FIND A WAY TO KILL! JUST LIKE THE GUY IN THE LINK BELOW WHO USED EXPLOSIVES TO KILL 38 KIDS. AND LYNNETTES "LOCKED UP" SCHOOL WOULD HAVE PROVIED MUCH COST AND NO PROTECTION. PLUS, WHO SAYS A CRAZY PERSON WOULD NOT SIMPLY WAIT UNTIL THEY OPENED THE SCHOOL DOORS AND THEN SHOOT EVERY ONE? WHILE WE REMEMBER THE DEAD AND THE OTHER VICTIMS WHICH THIS TERRIBLE EVENT HAS CAUSED, WE SHOULD ALSO MAKE SURE WE REMEMBER IT IS NOT GUNS WHICH ARE THE PROBLEM. NOPE! IT IS CRAZY PEOPLE!   THE PROOF, ALONG WITH GREAT PICTURES AND STORY ON WHY IT IS REALLY NOT GUNS WHICH ARE THE PROBLEM, IS HERE! http://www.thisistrue.com/d-newtown

I have an idea. Why don't we just turn all the schools into police stations ? The cops could even be the teachers.

Lets arm all children and let them kill anyone they think may be a threat.
