School resource officers should be unarmed because guns in school hallways send a “negative message” to students, according to an op-ed posted to the American Civil Liberties Union’s website.

Harold Jordan, a senior policy advocate for the ACLU of Pennsylvania, penned an op-ed for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Thursday, which was reposted on the ACLU’s main website Friday, that said cops stationed at Pittsburgh city schools should be forced to continue working without sidearms.

“Having officers patrol the hallways with firearms sends a negative message to students,” Jordan wrote. “It makes many students feel that they are being treated like suspects.”

“Places of learning are not security zones or criminal justice institutions, and they should not be staffed that way,” Jordan argued.

Instead, Jordan suggested that the Pittsburgh City School District look for ways to decrease the need for cops in its schools.

    Here’s a real stupid question would they(aclu) send there children to a school with un armed cops??? I think they should get a grip on reality.

  • Roy Fredrichsen says:

    The ACLU is still living in the past. The firearm a policeman carries is part of his uniform same as his “billy club” to insure he is respected and obeyed. The
    ACLU should be anywhere violence breaks out to protect the aggressors.

  • Harry J Schaubel says:

    Everyone knows it’s better to have a maniac running thru the halls shooting people, then to have an armed police officer walking the halls. Maybe the ACLU will be wiling to patrol the schools and tackle anyone who comes with evil intent.
    Actually that might be the best thing to do with this pack of Racist Idiots. Ever since they decided that Black Lives Matter is a peaceful organization and All Lives Matter was a Hate Group, I’ve had a very low opinion of this group.

  • The Redhawk says:

    Well , ACLU-NATICS, Sending a bad Message to TERRORISTS is a GOOD THING…. just like CONCEAL/CARRY has PROVEN … Why can’t you MORONS “GIT IT”????

  • Daniel W says:

    The reason why there have been no massacres in New York City schools is because most of them have armed police officers. If the ACLU wants un armed police officers in schools maybe they should send their children to those schools.Then if a massacre occurs they can say well at least the police officers didn’t have firearms.

  • edorr1atcoxdotnet says:

    Naturally the AMERICAN COMMUNIST LABOR UNION is supporting the would-be trouble-makers who would be secretly carrying pistols.

    1. The Redhawk says:

      They are Promoting ANARCHY with the SCHMUCK led (D) anarchy party Owned by Soros/O vomit

  • William R. Sullens says:

    The ACLU are a bunch of leftist losers who think only negatively. Why would anyone in their right mind want to be a school Police officer if he was not able to protect himself again some of the thugs/gangs that are in school and some of those same types that break into schools. All teachers should be able to conceal carry to protect themselves and their students in their classrooms. Who, but the Police officers are going to protect all the good students from the thugs/gangs when the students are between classes. The thugs/gangs are usually better equipped with weapons than the police officers y and the things schools use to try to screen for weapons, don’t seem to work. The ACLU should leave well enough alone since they only demonstrate their ignorance when they make statements like that.

  • Foon Der says:

    FO ACLU

  • unbridled says:

    Fvch the fascist aclu! Burn their headquarters to the ground with them in it!…

  • Walter Flatt says:

    SCREW THE ACLU.

    YOU AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    1. Harry J Schaubel says:

      uhhh….. Cause Barry is a Muslim??

  • C William Hanscom says:

    SO ACLU, I guess mass shootings in schools send a GOOD message?? These cops protect our children. When liberal fools like yourself put criminals where they belong we wont need them. Never saw a cop in any of my schools and we never had mass shootings. So FIND THE PROBLEM AND FIX THAT!! Leave armed cops until the threat against our children is gone.

  • grumpyolman says:

    The ACLU started out as a communist organization, and haven’t changed. – “I am for socialism, disarmament and ultimately for abolishing the
    state itself as an instrument of violence and compulsion. I seek the
    social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class and
    sole control by those who produce wealth. Communism is, of course, the
    goal.” ACLU founder Roger Baldwin, 1935

  • charles becker says:

    ACLU, another left-wing wacko group.They believe criminals have more rights than law-abiding citizens.

    1. Dee says:

      That’s because criminals are giving them votes .

  • Taking care of business! says:

    Well then, send the Marxist ACLU out there “unarmed” to police. They could stand a good dose of reality, like all libtards.

    1. Irked says:

      That would take a 3 day seminar to train them which end of the gun to point.

      1. Taking care of business! says:

        You said it, Irked! In the love of Christ to you and yours, Tcob!.

    2. Harry J Schaubel says:

      Actually they could use a good dose of the 6 or 15 posted above. :]

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    Delusional “Animal Farm” BS!

  • Rodney Steward says:

    Tell the ACLU to get lost, if the law is having to walk the halls of the school, it must be full of thugs, I’m sure they had rather be somewhere other than a school or else it’s enter fearing with to many drug deals!!

  • art says:

    it depends on what type of gun, some send 6 negitive messages and some send 15

    1. Harry J Schaubel says:

      lol. 15 is a nice round number, and if they’re a Republican there’s prolly 30-45 waiting in the wings

  • Thomas Goss says:

    EVERY ASSHOLE associated with the ACLU should be murdered by some ILLEGAL SCUM SUCKING PIECE OF SHIT.

  • Jean Langford M. says:

    THIS PROVES THE ACLU ARE ASININE IDIOTS..UNDERMINING THE SAFTEY OF OUR KIDS OF SOCIAL APPEARENCE…TOTAL LOONEYTUNE IDIOTS….

  • Irked says:

    We should have zone free cop areas for critters like the ACLU. Don’t want armed cops or security ? Fine. They will not come to your business or homes or anywhere else you go. Don’t call for help. Use your own abilities to defend yourselves you myopic idiots.

    1. Dee says:

      Great Idea . These idiots have No Common Sense . Let them see what it feels like Not to have the protection of the Police .

      1. Harry J Schaubel says:

        Remember about a year or so ago when the Black Panther leader was robbed? 1st thing he did was call 911!!!!!

  • Howie Subnick says:

    ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR F—–G MIND?! WHY DON’T WE SEND OUR FIGHTING TROOPS INTO BATTLE WITHOUT WEAPONS SO THE ENEMY WON’T GET A “NEGETIVE MESSAGE”. (A) ASS HOLES (C) CRACKPOTS (L) LUNATICS (U) UNEDUCATED…THAT’S YOUR ACLU ONE LETTER AT A TIME! GOD BLESS AMERICA.

  • Irked says:

    ACLU itself sends a “Negative Message” any and every where it’s godless head sticks up. It sets my hair “on fire” every time I hear these devils defend yet another pervert or godless organization. Hell’s waiting girly boys.

  • LT714RET says:

    What you do, is if any schools want the officer not to be armed, pull the officer from the school. School can get rent a cops and there’s more cops on the street where they’re needed.

  • JC says:

    The ACLU sends a negative message to the American people—-ask yourself do we really need this type of organization that fights our Constitution at every paragraph of this document that has guided us very successfully for over 200 years? I think not.

  • Sandra Holstein says:

    The aclu is a negative message in itself!!!!!!

  • cathylovesyou says:

    It is time for the aclu to retire. Jewish people are still discriminated against and that was why you were formed. Now your into everything with your lawyers making a good buck. Knock it off, take a break, stop creating riots and leave the police alone and safe to protect you. Very nauseating..

  • Art The Fart says:

    Well, arm the school staff, and you won’t need to hire police officers.

  • FAITH47 says:

    If ACLU are not allowing the police to carry a gun at the school, so how in the hell the police can protect other students I think this a stupid idiotic idea. I also think common sense applied here. So ACLU ARE NOT CONCERNED FOR THE SAFETY OF THE STUDENTS..

    1. Harry J Schaubel says:

      ACLU is concerned about ACLU. What next can they do to improve their “Dole” and label another group as Hater’s.

  • harry says:

    how about the ACLU open a office on the south side of CHICAGO and staffed with only whites? and no armed security. wonder how long the office would stay open??????

  • KayO says:

    Wait. Being on the receiving end of a thug’s gun isn’t sending a negative message? I like the idea of sending a message back to the thugs.

  • Rick D. says:

    Maybe the ACLU should send a message to its constituents: Comply-don’t resist and you’ll increase your chances of living to tell your story. Act like a fool and we’ll probably be reading about your story of what you could’ve done to spare your life.

    1. Mort Leith says:

      Comply ? ?
      What if they want your LIFE ?!

  • used_to_be_a_liberal says:

    The ACLU needs to be stuffed, then flushed down a toilet.

    1. Ramon1710 . says:

      ACLU. Born in a sewer. Hopefully will return to it.

    2. kbfallon says:

      President Trump should BAN THEM as terror supporters.

  • Ramon1710 . says:

    School resource officers should be unarmed because guns in school hallways send a “negative message” to students

    Psychos trying to make a name for themselves by going on a killing spree need a negative message.

    “Directors will be fighting over this story,” Columbine killer Dylan Klebold
    declared, prior to the slaughter.

    Producer Rob Reiner insists that Hollywood’s contribution to crime and moral decay is minimal, “Maybe perhaps even non-existent.”

    Meathead Reiner went on to add that the real culprits are assault weapons and handguns.

    1. C William Hanscom says:

      To show how clueless Reiner is I have never seen a hand gun or assault rifle walk into any building and start shooting. Have seen PEOPLE caring weapons doing that though. Weapons do not kill PEOPLE DO.

  • Peter Pihun says:

    The ACLU is just another clueless arm of the liberal establishment and nothing else.

  • dumbvet says:

    ACLU bites!

  • Mort Leith says:

    Tell me exactly what message it sends to the kids who you are not willing to protect from sick liberal mass murderers???

  • Stephen Howe says:

    “Unarmed teens”…over 6ft tall & 300lbs…cops should be allowed to carry guns AND USE THEM the instant they feel threatened. Instead the ACLU & NAACP seem to expect cops to strip down to their speedos and “rassle” these “urban yoofs” into compliance. RIDICULOUS!

    1. Taking care of business! says:

      Well said, Stephen. God bless you and yours. In the love of Christ, Tcob!.

    2. Harry J Schaubel says:

      lol Like the afterstory from the father of one of the 3 youths who broke into a home and were met by the Son with an AR-15. 3 Dead Youths.
      Now the Father of one is saying that the AR-15 gave him an “Unfair Advantage”!!!!! But 3 people breaking into your home in the middle of the night, 1 armed with a knife, the other with Brass Knuckles, are not there with peaceful intent. Maybe Daddy should tell his other kids
      Don’t break into someone’s house unless you wish to die”.
      Like the Police are saying with their patrol of our schools. “Don’t come in here with Evil Intent unless you wish to die”!!!

    3. Daniel W says:

      I have never seen any urban youths, over 6 feet tall and 300 pounds. Those youths should be homeschooled and not forced into any public school. Just my opinion, this way if they get rowdy there Mothers could deal with them.

      1. Stephen Howe says:

        Homeschooled? NFW! Not unless their “alternative school” is a hut in Haiti!

        1. Daniel W says:

          AHH OK

        2. Daniel W says:

          No comment???

  • Pat Cross says:

    and yet, should a student pull a switchblade, these assholes expect an officer to do nothing?

  • Bruce Walters says:

    “Kids” carry guns, If police are disarmed, do you really think the “kids” would leave their guns at home? The ones who oppose the school police officers carrying weapons are the very people who make armed police necessary.

    1. kbfallon says:

      Todays armed students are tomorrows prison population.

  • Buckeye conservative says:

    Has not the ACLU heard of “protect and serve” that forms the motto of so many police departments in the country. The reason the officers are in schools is to protect the students. Their presence has only occurred since the arrival of school mass murders Has the ACLU forgot already about Columbine, etc? Yes, they are security zones. The only thing the ACLU sees are Nazi-like cops for some reason. If the schools don’t believe the officers are present to protect and serve then they should not be there in the first place.

    1. FAITH47 says:

      RIGHT ON!!! ACLU DON’T HAVE COMMON SENSE. .WHAT THEY ALWAYS THINK IS ABOUT EVILNESS AND GREED.

      1. Harry J Schaubel says:

        “Perceived Evilness”. Like the All Lives Matter group that the ACLU labeled a Hate Group!

    2. Rodney Steward says:

      The ACLU starts as much trouble as the thugs they continue to help, it’s no better than the NAACP, black panthers or the BLM’s group!

      1. Dee says:

        Totally Agree ! The left is trying to unarm America step by step . If they don’t want Our Officers armed then wish them good riddins and leave . Their stupidity should not be able to put Our Officers in harms way !

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          Absolutely, as bad as our school systems have gotten, they’re basically turning out anti-American idiots with these socialist teachers!

      2. Harry J Schaubel says:

        Funny. I thought they WERE NAACP, BLM, & Black Panthers. It seems the only groups they are condemning are white!

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          You’re right friend, just another hate group!!

      3. Jo Ann Kowalski says:

        Mr. Steward like I said my friend they stand for atheists communist loony university.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          I totally agree Jo Ann, the schools should be at the top list for cleaning out and getting rid of a lot of teachers!

  • deepthink says:

    Perhaps the Parents should teach their children that police are GOOD PEOPLE and are there to help PROTECT them instead of teaching them that “cops are bad!!”

    1. Dee says:

      Exactly ! What has happened here is the Lack of Respect for Our Police and treating these students like little babies is so wrong. They Need to Grow Up and be retaught to Respect and Fear .Good Fear is healthy !

  • kbfallon says:

    The ones who are worried about the Police officers are the ones who have something to hide…..the law abiding ones see it as such.

    1. Ed Stahl says:

      Why bother to have police there anyway??? Sure don’t want to “traumatize the bad kids”— or “outsiders breaking in”! And I am sure that no-one wants an officer with a gun in area when he is being beaten senseless, or being stabbed repeated;ly (possibly with more than two in action doing this)! …Or a “gang shootout” in halls! Time for officers to go home then – right?

      1. kbfallon says:

        The police are at these schools for a reason……crime! Our kids deserve an education free of the ones who cause problems and make it hard for them to get a good educational experience. I live in an area where this is not a need……the situation dictates the requirements.
