School's new armed security guard forgets gun in school bathroom

In the wake of the Sandy Hook murders, one Michigan K-through-8 school decided they needed better security. So how's that been working out?

Just days after calling its newly hired armed security guard "a tremendous asset to the safety of our students," a Michigan school released a statement saying the retired firearms instructor had caused a "breach in security protocol" by leaving his handgun unattended in the school's bathroom. […]


The school, which serves grades K through 8, insists that no students were in danger, and vowed to "continue to work on improving school security."


That's just great. Just great.

What did he forget his pants in the bathroom too? The gun should never come off his belt.

This is the answer to the question:

What could possibly go wrong hiring armed, experienced and trained security guards to patrol the school corridors???

As the article goes on to note:


No charges are pending against Arnold, and Chatfield School Director Matt Young would not say what punishment, if any, the security officer might receive.


"It's almost like no harm no foul," said Lapeer County Prosecutor Byron Konschuh.


You just could not write comedy like this. It's gold Jerry, pure gold!!!!

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

Everyone calm down. This happened in America, the kids k-8 can disassemble and reassemble most firearms blindfolded. It's not like he left a joint in the bathroom because if that happened, all hell would break loose.

Actual cops lose their guns quite frequently, a recent example being an RCMP officer in Mississauga.

Oh hey, trained professionals who are armed for a living lose their guns all the time. Let's have more guns people can treat irresponsibly. What a brilliant position!

To prevent cops from losing guns, cops should be unarmed. Guns are evil, not people.

But, but........what would a discussion (aka argument) be without strawman arguments?


:P ;)

The security 'guard' (and I use the term most loosely) in this story is a joke.

See post above the one you quoted, you'll notice a caricature that's just as much a joke. I was just following along with the theme.

Cops lose guns, so do security guards. That was a relevant point to which you went off on your tangent.

Of course, the outrage is because it's an armed guard in a school. Big deal, nothing happened. It could be a cop losing it in a public restroom where children frequent. It's careless all the same, but it's news here for obvious reasons.

Not because it's a weapon left carelessly around children. Right.

What a joke.

And relevant point was that cops leave their guns too, which certainly children are susceptible to finding.. to which you went off on typical tangent. :lol:
