Why did the L.A. school police have GRENADE LAUNCHERS?
L.A. schools police will return grenade launchers
This is what “defund the police” means. LA school police — *school police* — bought grenade launchers and an armored vehicle. To oversee *teenagers*. These police are paranoid fantasists. They do not need and should not have these weapons.
This an amazing headline.
Let this be a warning to other nations: This is what happens when you let special interests write your country’s laws.
So, it seems fair to say the Los Angeles Unified School District's police force needs neither "three grenade launchers" (which are being returned) nor a "Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Armored Vehicle" (which it intends to keep).
Grenade launchers—for a school district? Our children shouldn’t be attending school among police, much less police with a battlefield mentality. Demilitarize police now.
this is what you get when you agree to compromise & reform - the school district still has *its own police department* but they'll return *SOME* of the military grade weaponry
“The Los Angeles School Police Department, which serves the nation’s second-largest school system, will return three grenade launchers but intends to keep 61 rifles and a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected armored vehicle.” The school police? What?
#LAPD unit for schools program received a mine-resistant ambush protected vehicle like the one pictured one through a federal program. #copsoutofschools #PoliceReformNow
Get a load of this headline: "L.A. schools police will return grenade launchers but keep rifles, armored vehicle."
The police who patrol schools in LA have agreed to give up three grenade launchers, but insist they need an MRAP designed to survive IEDs. The school police.
How kind and thoughtful of them!
When you train a language model on headlines and tell it to max out the USA direction in latent space
The Breakfast Club would end rather differently these days.
It will be a great day when schools have to hold bake sales to buy grenade launchers.
"The Los Angeles School Police Department, which serves the nation’s second-largest school system, will return three grenade launchers but intends to keep 61 rifles and a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected armored vehicle it received through the program"
'The Los Angeles School Police Department . . . will return three grenade launchers but intends to keep 61 rifles and a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected armored vehicle'
Oh great: L.A. schools police will return grenade launchers but keep rifles, armored vehicle
If you think defunding police is a radical idea, consider this headline - the LA SCHOOL police: L.A. schools police will return grenade launchers but keep rifles, armored vehicle
So, so many wrongs here it's hard to wrap my head around it: Civil rights groups had 2 force #LAUSD 2 relinquish grenade launchers & military weaponry from their school police & had 2 get Dept of Defense to halt this practice?! #stateviolence
L.A. schools police will return grenade launchers but keep rifles, armored vehicle
Look what you've done with all this protesting! No more grenade launchers for the LA School PD. I wanna see you try to stop first graders from calling each other "pee" and "poo" with only 61 rifles and and a lousy armoured vehicle.
*record scratch* Huh?
