Russell Simmons Pitches Mediators in Schools [POLL]

As more and more New Jersey cities are putting together plans to have police patrol their schools in the aftermath of the Newtown shootings, rapper Russel Simmons, on the steps of city hall in New York is calling for unarmed mediators instead.

Simmons asked for funding for non profit organizations like Life Camp, Man Up, and I Love My Life that promote peace through unarmed police officers and offer counseling to emotionally troubled people.

 

Personally, I’m all for armed police officers at every school. I want anyone who would ever entertain the thought of repeating Sandy Hook to know that there is an armed officer with full authority of the police department at the ready. I really believe it would have made a difference. As for the cost, what could be the cost if we don’t? What do you think?

Please take our poll.
