Politicians Likely Suspects in Next School Tragedy

The murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School happened nine months ago. School is about to open again, yet politicians ignored the hard work of writing laws to protect our children. Many of us wrote about the changes needed to stop mass murder in our schools. I have not seen those changes implemented across the United States, and I certainly have not seen them implemented in California where I live. Our politicians left our children at risk. Yes, the politicians planned for the next tragedy. They prepared press releases rather than preparing necessary legislation to keep our children safe.

I took this from the article at the OP's link:

" Politicians installed a few security doors and cameras in California schools. California politicians rejected the one thing we know reduces school violence; they rejected armed security on campus. Politicians can have armed security at work, but our children can't."

The author makes a great point. This is something to argue to gun control advocates and politicians.

I agree with everything the author said except this:

Quote:Glory killers commit their crimes to receive media attention after their death. By restricting the news coverage after a tragedy, we can deny the murderers the celebrity status they seek. We already restrict news coverage of rape victims and child victims of crime. Writing media laws to hide the names and faces of glory killers was too hard for our politicians.

That's a blatant infringement on the first amendment. You shouldn't give up a little bit of freedom to gain a little bit of security.

We should just hope we have ethical news makers who want to be truthful and helpful instead of just be in it for the money.
