Use deadly force in schools

Grandfatherly Dan Flynn wants to kill students

Texas state Rep. Dan Flynn introduced a bill to allow deadly force in case of fear of bodily harm or harm to school property. Teachers are already allowed to have firearms in school and this would make it a whole lot easier to use them. To make matter worse, civil immunity would be granted to those who use deadly force, meaning they would not be liable for the injury or death of student.

Time for a mental evaluation of all teachers, administrators, bus drivers and especially Dan Flynn.

Such a bill could have disastrous consequences for students of color. A coalition of civil rights organizations found that black and Latino students face much higher rates of disciplinary action in schools, which exacerbates the so-called school-to-prison pipeline. By extension, if students of color are already disproportionately targeted by school authorities for their behavior, they could also become the targets of deadly force used by educators.


Surrounded by the crazies in US Government, mostly the GOP, I just had to create my own space to cut and paste and rant a little
