The U.S. Secret Service and the U.S. Marshals Service has been expanding into America’s school system at an alarming rate.
As the Secret Service report “Protecting America’s Schools” mentions, there is no profile that school administrators and teachers can use to identify a student attacker.
“Attackers varied in age, gender, race, grade level, academic performance, and social characteristics. Similarly, there was no identified profile of the type of school impacted by targeted violence.”
“The marshals would be deployed at each school by the Sarasota County schools Director of Safety, Security and Emergency Management for Sarasota County Schools. They would each carry a firearm.”
According to Houston Public Media, school marshals identity’s are kept secret.
“A traditional school district or charter school can opt into the program and appoint a school marshal. That staff member, who could be a principal, coach, teacher or other individual, must complete 80 hours of training, including how to respond to an active shooter. The identity of the marshal is kept secret, unless there is an emergency on campus.”
“There is hereby created in the department of public safety the Ohio school marshal program, which shall be administered by a chief school marshal. The program shall provide services to public and nonpublic schools and institutions of higher education regarding school and campus safety and security.”
“The department (School Marshals) shall administer, maintain, and operate the Ohio criminal justice network. The Ohio criminal justice network shall be a computer network that supports state and local criminal justice activities. The network shall be an electronic repository for various data, which may include arrest warrants, notices of persons wanted by law enforcement agencies, criminal records, prison inmate records, stolen vehicle records, vehicle operator’s licenses, and vehicle registrations and titles.”
Putting school marshals in charge of criminal justice networks will only expand the never-ending War on Terror and will put more people on the terrorist watchlist. Marshals could also use the network to take guns away from innocent people using Red Flag laws.
If you are still having doubts about Homeland Security’s role in putting school marshals in America’s schools I leave you with this tidbit of information.
“The department shall coordinate all homeland security activities of all state agencies and shall be a liaison between state agencies and local entities for those activities and related purposes.”
Like a death by a thousand cuts, American’s have watched their freedoms slowly being taken away from them. Putting secret service agents and school marshals in every school across America will only help destroy what little rights students have left.
