As we continue to see gun violence across our nation on the rise, and the school shootings being part of our natural landscape, we all should be frightened. what are our elected officials doing to combat this on-going violence? As of today, not a lot, just the same “political grandstanding” we see after each school shooting across this Great Nation.
Once, would it not be wonderful to see a collective, corroborative effort to really tackle this plaguing disease of constant gun violence, senseless murders in our streets?
I am all-in on leading this effort. I am not talking about just a one sided “lets band all firearms” and the problem goes away. This isn't the answer. Its an emotional play to allow emotions to be tricked into thinking this is problem can be quickly remedied. We have a complex murder problem that will require complex and critical thinking and problem solving by many individuals to reduce and minimize this crisis.
The current Sheriff of Guilford County, Danny Rogers is mostly silent. I have heard no statements, or conversations generated by this Sheriff. The Sheriff is the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the County. Danny Rogers should have stepped up and taken the lead on School Safety in Guilford County. The Guilford County Schools has not responded to any parents concerns about school safety. The lack of transparency by the Guilford County School Board and Superintendent should have attracted the Sheriff’s attention.
The Sheriff should be demanding cooperation with protecting the students in the Guilford County Schools System. He should be having regular dialog and attending the School Board Meetings. He should be representing the Parents and students who elected him to serve as their Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the County.
If the Voters make the right decision November 8th, 2022, I will be the voice for the Parents, students, and staff of the Guilford County Schools for their safety and well being. We can’t do four more years with this same Sheriff and expect any better results.
