Police, not prayer: What’s wrong with the picture in Concord?
We suppose that is wise, although the proper weapons and safety training of willing and able on-site school personnel is more likely to help more in such situations.
What is really wrong with this picture, however, is that while police in riot gear are accepted and acceptable at Concord High School, a solitary, unarmed woman praying on the school’s steps is strictly prohibited.
“She’s not teaching prayer; she’s not out there asking kids to come with (her),” Connolly had told the Concord Monitor in May. “She does not promote religion.”
We think the school would be safer if it had both the praying woman AND the police practice.
