Why is it the Sheriff that's always featured in the paper? If this article is about SRO's how about recognizing and photographing some of them? By now, we all know what the Sheriff looks like.
Another question is why Robert Arnold is in charge when, he backs money launderers and supports them receiving a relaxed sentence for no other reason than he is a family friend, he supports police officers giving 'common courtesy' to drinking and driving police officers, he also thinks people in jail only deserve two meals a day.
Now i realize that might not seem like a big deal because who cares about people in jail. But i have a friend in jail for the charge of, underage drinking. And yes that means Sheriff Arnold thinks these people should only eat twice.
The best thing he has done was fire Officer Killings.
Yeah, Mayor Burgess is making sure everytime anything is written about the sheriff's office, Arnold's picture is plastered on the page. Note that it was one of these "role modeling" SRO's who was pulled over for doing 99 mph after drinking and driving. That's not the kind of role model I want for my kids and I dont think anyone else does either.
@Postlooker22- State law only requires that inmates be fed twice a day, and only one of those meals has to be hot. Whether they're fed twice a day or thrice a day, there are still dietary and caloric guidelines that must be met. I think that if you're sentenced to serve jail time you should only eat twice a day unless you perform some job/service for the facility, then you could earn that third meal.
I love Mr. Nelson, I taught at LaVergne High back in the mid 90's and he would come to my Biology Class and discuss real life situations and issues with drugs, alcohol, etc. Students respected his discussion.
SRO officers are extremely effective in all schools. In the middle schools, they build such a good rapport with them. When the students learn of drug usage from others they go to them. SRO officers know what's up in the schools due to their positive interaction with the student body.
On a recent tour of the RCS youth detection center, it was stated that during the school year occupancy was higher due to warrants being served by them and being on the job, per say, in the schools.
This is a most wonderful program in RCS and they all have my upmost respect. Thank you SRO officiers for making our students feel safe at school with your presence and providing positive role models from our children.
I also think the world of the SRO at WBMS. You Rock!
