    Meanwhile... notice... there are guns around Israeli kids and none of the kids are being magically killed by the gun when the gun owner is not bent on evil:

    Yes but I don't want to live in Israel. Or anywhere resembling it.

    But if it works, why not have it here?

    We live in a fantasy bubble where we think just because we are America, we can do things the same way while the world changes around us and somehow, nothing will happen because we are Americans.

    The fact is that our peaceful living and lifestyle is protected day and night endlessly by those who work behind the scenes seamlessly so that our society continues on its ignorantly blissful ways.

    At some point, it becomes untenable to continue and people have to face reality that not everyone in the world, including those who are here domestically, want what's good for America. We need to face the threat face on, and that will be ugly, guaranteed, and perceptions of our society will be shattered. There's no other way.

    Ok so amidst all this adjusting to change stuff, is Israel a better place to live than the USA?

    Let's ask the parents of those kids in Newtown or any parent of any kid who was hurt or killed in a school shooting... or ask the victims... but you can't because they are all DEAD.

    I'm not saying we become Israel, not at all, but we are under constant attack, make no mistake about it. If other countries have successfully adopted methods to curtail or reduce the danger, what's wrong with us taking a look at it?

    We can still be American... but adopt other things which work around the country. We do it all the time, after all, taking innovations from the whole world to make this country the greatest on Earth.

    Heck, here's a novel idea, let's also adopt the immigration laws and policies of Mexico, since they are always lecturing us on ours. I'm all for that.

  8. With the exception of the the 2011-2012 school year, I worked at my old high school since 2002. Every high school in the city and almost every other district in the county has an SRO in the high schools. Besides me, there was the assigned SRO and 3 other city officers who rotated in on their off days at the school. I hung up my badge and bat belt this past April and don't miss the action(ok, a little maybe). Changes in administration at the school/district level degraded the work environment and it got to the point that the SRO finally had enough and bid to a detective position. The school has since gone down hill as the remaining long time officers also left.

    Couldn't tell ya, but I bet you they probably don't have the same drug and gang problems we do in our schools and they probably don't disrespect their teachers the same way some of our students do and I have never heard of an Israeli shooting up an Israeli school.
     
  10. The difference is that Israelis know the world is a violent place and believe that violence could come knocking on their door at any time. We here in America think the world is a great place with roses and "how could that happen" is always stated after violence comes knocking on the door.

    America's perception toward the real world is skewed. That is really the problem.

    That's it, in a nutshell. It amazes me just how people could be so blissfully ignorant of the real world around them, and yet it seems that they are the VAST majority of this country. It's like this country is blindly going down the path to it's demise, and most everyone has their head in the sand (or other places....) and not bothering to look up and see if their perception even closely resembles reality. Those that do look out and try to warn are told to sit down and shut up, you're paranoid.

    You didn't answer the question. I asked if Israel is a better place to live. I'm betting not. I'm betting you realize this too which is why you didn't answer.

    I have no problem looking at countries to emulate as a means of solving some of our problems. But let's maybe emulate one that isn't basically under militant control by the government and isn't under constant REAL fear of daily rocket attacks. I've never seen video of Israel and thought "gee willickers that's where I want to live..."

    That's all I'm sayin.

    I have no hesitation accepting that America has its head up its own butt. But let's work toward a better place and not toward becoming a third world country.

  15. my county has a sro at every school in the county. they teach dare classes and provide security for the school
     
  16. Would I move to Israel? Yes I would. They are one of the only countries in the world I respect. Why don't I? Because for better or worse, I love my country and will do what I can to ensure that I leave this country a better place for my children.

    acpd, my daughter is a high school administrator who has fought hard for balance between administration, teachers, support staff, students, and parents. Changes at the top usually disrupts any equilibrium that existed.

    Could you go a little deeper into what changed and the resulting degradation?

    Thanks

    I spent some time in Israel about 15 years ago. It's not what is portrayed on the nightly news. I enjoyed my time there and grew to greatly respect the Israelis, and their no nonsense approach to things.

    I think we would be a much better country if we resembled Israel in a lot of ways.

    That's not a fair question. I live in Texas. There's obviously no better place to live... ;)

    It's not like that in real life. It's really not.

    There is one small part under conflict, and more people are killed in Chicago.

    That's a bit unfair. Israel is NOT a third world country. I've also been to third world countries. It is actually a beautiful country, populated by good people.
