Don’t delay; arm officers

It is unfathomable that Jenny Rose, Spokane Public Schools employees president, is putting the lives of school students in possible harm’s way because of money.

What use is an unarmed resource officer against an armed person intent on killing people? The officers are simply targets like anyone else.

Anytime a person goes on a tragic killing spree, the only way to stop it is with a gun. Why do police officers carry guns?

Rose needs a reality check. She also needs to stop putting children’s lives at risk over money.
