Detectors in our Schools
The last place we ever though we would need to put metal detectors.
But in this day and age, it would be remiss if you didnít expect
them to be there. Kidsí bringing guns and knives to school is
something beyond the thought of rationale. Back in the 50ís there
were never any problems like this and even in the 80ís you never
heard of a school shooting until Columbine.
If we had metal detectors in the schools then we could have protected
the students from the two gunmen at Columbine. Unfortunately it
takes one incident to make something like this mandatory. Metal
detectors can save peoples lives.
Almost every school in the United States has a metal detector.
Even a small pocketknife can be picked up. Metal detectors are
made for both fun and for purposes like this one. They are only
as good as they are being used. If the people who monitor these
machines donít stop to fully explore the reason why they went
off in the first place, then they arenít going to work.
There have been times when you are standing in line at the airport
and people are complaining that the line isnít moving fast enough,
well that happens in the schools too. Teachers mostly operates
these machines as students pass through each day. Some of them
may think that oneís a good student so let them pass but the truth
is you never know what is going through someoneís mind. Checking
everyone is the only way to ensure the metal detectors are a success.
