Arizona principal asks cop not to wear uniform and gun when picking up daughter

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, reported.

    Perhaps their worries would be assuaged if the cop dressed up like an illegal alien….
    As for the Florida story, a) I would show the principle some really interesting gestures, and b) I would enroll my kid in a decent private school, far away from the politically correct nancy pants wearing administrators in Harmony, FL.? Stupid people cannot educate.

    Whatever we do as parents, lets surely teach our kids that cops are big scary guys that wear uniforms, carry guns and are really dangerous to be around.
    What kind of pinheads are parents allowing their kids to be around for most of the day? ?Public schools are bad enough as it is, regarding their dismal record of educating children in this country. ?I guess that’s not good enough though. ?Now they’re going to try and program our kids to be afraid of the local constabulary, for what possible reason I cannot fathom. ?Folks, get your kids out of your local public school. ?They can’t teach them, and they’re really trying to screw them up!

    I Knew it had to be a woman-women have been put into? positions they are not qualified to handle -just because they are? female.

      I agree completely. ?Men and women REALLY are different!

    This idiot administrator will probably get a promotion out of this and wind up implementing and directing school security for the state.
    “Are you freaking kidding me”? sums it up rather well.

    Hoping the cop told the administrator to take a long walk off a short pier.

      Actually, it would be more of a long waddle; that’s how you walk with? your head? up your hindquarters.

    So let me get this straight, we WANT our uniformed officers protecting our children from the BAD guys, but we don’t want our children to be aware that our uniformed police officers are the GOOD guys, and that when they are in trouble they are who you should seek out?

    But of course, the principle would not ask a male parent to stop wearing a dress, heels and a wig, when picking up his daughter or a woman wearing a burkha. Transvestites are good, public service officers of the law bad, according to 1984 Rules.
