Fontana, Calif., schools get high-powered rifles

Hell, let's do away with metal detectors at the schoolhouse door...

...we need 50-caliber machine gun nests.

And, grenades!!!

I mean...

...didn't some of these school shooters have grenades/bombs???

Talk about bunker mentality!

A tank...

I want a tank!

Painted school bus yellow...


Okay, tanks are expensive...

...would even wipe out Cairo's $3 million slush fund (before the FOP leaves and the salivating BOE can get its hands on it and fritter it away.)

It's time to take a closer look at school consolidation. Cairo, Century, Egyptian, and Meridian together would make one decent (albeit still small) high school. All four need to be combined into a new Alexander-Pulaski County High School.

It needs to happen...NOW!

Since new school construction is costly and takes too much time, I have an idea... that is a perfect match for the increased emphasis on school safety.

Since Governor Pat Quinn succeeded in shutting down the Tamms Supermax Prison, let's put that sucker to use! (The empty prison, not Pat Quinn!)

Any needed remodeling could be completed in time for the opening of the 2013-2014 School Year.

Since the prison was designed to keep people in, it should cut down on students leaving campus (aka "going over the hill" at Cairo Jr/Sr High School).

Since it was also designed to keep people out, it should fulfill our prime objective...protect students and staff from any wannabe school shooters.

Worry about negative student/parent reaction?

Hey, kids call school "prison" already!

And this way...

...we could keep the guns on the outside of the "school" where they belong!

Ooh, ooh, ooh... a former "alternative school teacher", as a former keeper of after-school detention.


Now that's what I'm talkin' about!!!
