This story sent me straight into full fuddy-duddy mode, shaking my head about the terrible state of things today (when compared to the golden age of my youth, naturally):
The chief of police for Indianapolis Public Schools said the district's plan to cut 20 officers will mean staff and students won't feel as safe.
[. . .]
Garner said he believes the loss will be felt across the district.
"Employees and students are not going to feel as safe. They like having that number of officers available and seeing those officers in their schools," he said. "We're going to get accustomed to it. There's no option. We're going to have to get accustomed to it having fewer officers."
Seeing cops roaming the halls, not to mention metal detectors and drug-sniffing dogs, would have probably kept me freaked out most of the time, and I'm glad I got out of school before all that started. But the "IPS chief of police" is unddoubtedly right that kids today will feel less safe with fewer officers visible.
