It really is a mental disease. How else can you describe this? The principal at Entz Elementary School in Mesa, Ariz. contacted a Coolidge police officer and asked him not to wear his uniform or bring his gun to campus ever again when dropping off or picking up his daughter.
From My Fox Phoenix.
“There were some parents who were concerned about that fact that there was a fully armed officer on campus and they spoke to the principal about it,” said Helen Hollands, spokesperson for Mesa Unified School District.
She says the principal spoke with Officer Urkov and asked him not to wear his uniform and gun to school anymore.

What the heck is wrong with these wingnuts? Kids – and adults – see cops all over the place. At the mall, walking a beat, at McDonald’s, pizza joints, directing traffic, providing security… They keep order and come to incidents to help people, yet this principal and the parents that complained stated his presence “shocked and upset a lot of people?” What do these people do when they run into a cop at Dunkin Donuts? What do they do when they see a cop walking up the street? Panic?
What the hell is going on in this country? How does the attitude of this principal and the parents in any way support the mental health of these kids? Through their actions, they are telling kids cops are bad and to be afraid when they see them!
I’m “concerned” not only about liberal teachers on campus, but I have a problem with their influence that has been creating an onslaught of dependency for decades. Certainly that’s more dangerous than a cop on campus. Can I ask the principal to ban them?
Supposedly the principal is now saying she’s sorry the cop misinterpreted her intentions. Oh no lady, we hear you loud and clear.
And the stupidity continues
From a Fox News story out of Florida.
An 8-year-old Florida boy was suspended from school after using his finger as a pretend gun while playing cops and robbers with his friends.
Jordan Bennett was suspended for a day after administrators at Harmony Community School in Harmony, Fla., said the gesture was an act of violence, WFTV.com reported.
