If you’ve been following my articles for any length of time, you’ll know that I’m a firm supporter for removing children from public schools.
I realize that this isn’t something that everyone can do at the drop of a hat, but in the end, I don’t see any advantage in making a purposeful decision to continue sending children to public school if the parents or guardians have the means to do otherwise.
There are various reasons why I believe this is the case, which includes America’s dumbing down and the liberal agenda being pushed on children, but the most important one is safety.
It is not a safe environment to be in these days, what with school shootings and some kids being raised in a bad environment and raised to be cruel and increasingly violent against their peers.
People always say that stuff like that wouldn’t or couldn’t ever happen in their area, and that’s what everyone says until it finally does. Well, I want to give a little more reasoning as to why this sort of attitude is illogical.
I have a buddy who says the same thing. He sends his kids to school claiming that nothing like that would ever happen there, and to be sure, it hasn’t yet. Praise God for that.
However, I live in an area where people say the same thing. Both about the big towns and the small towns because the schools are so good in the big towns that nothing like that would happen, and in the small towns everyone knows one another and nothing like that could ever happen in those small towns.
Well, something did just happen in one of these small towns in Alabama, not very far from where I actually live.
A man in Gadsden, AL was shot and killed by police who was trying to enter an elementary school. The man wasn’t even from the area, he was from North Carolina.
The man wasn’t stopped by gun laws or signs that said “Gun Free Zone”. He was stopped by a bullet.
Fox News reported,
The gunfire erupted outside Walnut Park Elementary in Gadsden around 9:30 a.m. after the individual showed up and attempted to gain entry into vehicles and buildings, Etowah County Sheriff Jonathan Horton told WIAT.
“I got a call from the principal, who’s really distraught, and I really couldn’t make out what was happening,” Tony Reddick, superintendent of Gadsden City Schools, told the station. “But I knew it was something pretty bad.”
A school resource officer who belongs to the Rainbow City Police Department reportedly responded to the scene and called for backup. The individual – who has not been identified — was shot after a physical altercation ensued, according to WIAT, citing police.
The man repeatedly tried opening doors while children were inside for a summer camp.
Don’t ever believe the hype that it could never happen in your town. If it could happen in Gadsden, AL, trust me, it can happen in your town, too.
