Officer shoots boy holding fake gun at rec center

Officer shoots boy holding fake gun at rec center | Upsetment | Scoop.it
CLEVELAND (AP) — Police say a 12-year-old boy brandishing what turned out to be a fake gun at a Cleveland recreation center was shot and wounded by a responding officer.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

What a tragic story. Note the last line. If you have a kid who likes toy guns, make sure those orange tips are in place. I feel for the family, but I also feel for the police officer who must have had one awful moment making that decision.

Feds equip school police agencies with military gear

Feds equip school police agencies with military gear | Upsetment | Scoop.it
Law enforcement agencies affiliated with school districts have received military surplus equipment, in some cases rifles and other weapons, through the Department of Defense 1033 program.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

If the 9/11 hijackers wanted to attack America's basic freedom, they could have no better ally than our Departments of Defense and Homeland Security. Sure we have some disturbed youngsters with guns and we need to have appropriate law enforcement to deal with them. Sure we have some drug gangs and we need to have appropriate law enforcement to deal with them, too. But, sadly the process has gone way past appropriate. I would try to dissuade my daughter or son from attending any school that saw itself in need of this kind of equipment. I certainly wouldn't want to live in such a school district or near such a college.

If it can save even one life, let's get the word out.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

If you have a teenager in your home, make sure they see this. If you text and drive, please watch this. Most importantly remember, "If you're texting, you're not driving #justdrive"

Selling a Poison by the Barrel: Liquid Nicotine for E-Cigarettes

Selling a Poison by the Barrel: Liquid Nicotine for E-Cigarettes | Upsetment | Scoop.it
“E-liquids” used to refill e-cigarettes are potent, unregulated neurotoxins. Evidence of the potential dangers is already emerging.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

While this is a valid concern -- nicotine is a dangerous substance -- I have to wonder how much of sudden concern is the result of the cigarette industry's concern for their profits versus real public health worries. Yes, we need to make sure that users (and vendors) of e-cigarettes understand the issue and that manufacturers know that their workers must be protected, but let's not start attacking what may be a good technology. And why compare this to coffee when we could us alcohol, a common substance that is widely used, abused, and dangerous to children, as the simile. Perhaps that tells us something about the motivation for the attack.
(No, I am not a smoker or e-cigarette user.)
