Iowa Parent Blasts Des Moines Register for Map: ‘Who in Their Right Mind Would Say Whether a School Is Armed or Not?!’
Two days ago, The Des Moines Register published an interactive map identifying the school districts within the state that don’t have security. Today, one Iowa father joined America Live to voice his outrage. Dave, who chose not to give his last name so that he wouldn’t put his children in jeopardy, blasted the paper’s move, saying, “What person in their right mind would ever tell anyone whether a school has armed security or not? It’s appalling to say the least.”
Dave said that while it’s important to discuss school security in the wake of the Newtown shooting, parents should be having that conversation directly with their school districts, not with newspapers.
