School districts in Minneapolis have cut their ties with local police departments and secured contracts with private security forces. As a response to the largely artificial outrage over the albeit wrongful death of George Floyd, Minneapolis school districts have been under growing demand from local pressure groups to disavow law enforcement.
This would mean the end of Student Resource Officers (SROs) in Minneapolis schools, and the beginning of less trained but equally or better armed private security personnel walking around children on school campuses.
As anyone who has been following current events over the last 20 years will know, private security forces can often be less accountable, less capable, less disciplined, and less able to use restraint appropriately in confrontations than police. This is due largely to the fact the private security documents are easier to delete and easier to alter without oversight.
The bigger and the more international the entity paying the private security force, the more true this is. For example, the Blackwater agency that was hired to perform the duties of capital shock troopers in Iraq has been reported to wreak horrendous atrocities on civilians in that part of the world with zero oversight to any chain of command that can be made to reckon with American justice.
The best example is the U.N. “peacekeeping” force. These military units have been known to use rape and terror as weapons of war as much or more than any other army in the world, “rogue” or not. In fact, it’s worth noting as the Democrats continue to push for lawlessness in our nation’s cities, that if the police are successfully defunded, the ensuing chaos will be used as an excuse to bring in U.N. forces.
With riots still ongoing in Minneapolis and many other American cities, a move like this would have no effect on the number of weapons such security officers would be inclined to carry. It would have no effect on the level of paranoia as compared to that of a traditional SRO. But what it would create is less accountability and less training among the armed guards of public school students in that city.
Anyone who has been watching and analyzing the behavior of Democrats over the last 15 to 20 years will know this is a recipe for tragedy – and there’s nothing more valuable to Democrats than a good, bloody tragedy.
According to a public statement made by the Minneapolis Public School administration, the group plans to pay between $65,000 and $85,000 per year for the services of 11 private security personnel.
100+ public school teachers gathered to protest the move last week. As the agenda to hire private security moves forward, regardless of the protests, there are serious questions as to whether or not the forthcoming security officers will be adequately trained.
The district released a statement saying, “Unfortunately, because we used an existing job description to allow us to meet our August 18 deadline, the job description did mention a background in law enforcement.” The message went on to clarify that law enforcement experience was an undesirable thing.
