St. Louis Police Chief Wants To Arm School Personnel...

ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) - St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch says it is time to talk about arming civilian school personnel following Friday’s massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, comparing it to arming airline pilots after September 11, 2001.

“I see it no differently,” he said. “Pilots have been armed now for many many years, we’ve not had another hijacking and the issue is, for the bad guy, he doesn’t know which airplane he’s getting on, if the pilot is armed or not.”

Fitch said the killing will not be stopped by legislation or laws. “If there’s somebody that’s really hellbent on doing something like this, they’re not going to care what the law is.”

The chief is adamant about his plans but realizes his calls for arming school workers will be met with resistance.



Concerning the possibility of gun control, Fitch said “it’s just not going to happen,” and called for an increased focus on mental health instead.

“One of the first thing governments tend to cut back on in tight times are mental health services,” he said. “We know this individual has a mental health history in Connecticut, we’ve seen that in all the school shootings, and additional resources would be helpful.

But, last resort, somebody’s got to take action and they got to do it quickly.”

That is a very smart man right there. And a cop too! Who knew?!

IMO, this is the kind of stuff that needs to get more airplay. If these progs want to argue with the professional law enforcement community they rely upon to protect them, have at it.

I'm already seeing FB posts where the progs are sneering at such suggestions, but can't seem to offer any intelligent counterpoint. I have a feeling that a chief like this who would make these kinds of statements would probably tell them how full of shit they are.

That's my opinion, for what it's worth.

Ahhhh yes. So glad some people actually have a head on their shoulders.

1. Protect the schools with at least SOME body on the premises armed and trained.

2. Figure out what to do with serious mental illness.



Excellent. Now to get everyone else on the boat.

Well, the local CBS affiliate was the one interviewing him.

I've already had 3 people grab it and share it off my FB.

I emailed Chief Fitch to thank him for his comments. He needs to know he has plenty of company in his sentiments. You know there are morons out there who are genuinely stupid enough to arrogantly tweet threats against him. Let's see how that works out for them.

This is exactly what i've been suggesting as well. The Israelis did this in the 70s when they were having problems with Pali's attacking Jew schools. They gave all the teachers UZI's....problem solved.

I wish we were seeing more of this than the alternative. NOBODY can (more specifically, wants to) answer the question as to why these mass shootings do not take place in police stations instead of schools or universities.
