Welcome To CrazyTown USA: Arming School Janitors | Crooks and Liars

Wasn't  Groundskeeper Willie Armed in an Episode of the Simpsons?
Speaking of the stupid burning, how about that Montpelier Ohio School Board?

They have decided to arm their janitors:
The Montpelier Exempted Village Schools Board of Education has approved the carrying of handguns by its custodial staff.

The 5-0 vote of the board Wednesday night to allow handgun training for four custodians to be able to tote weapons at the K-12 campus at the Williams County school came after last month's deadly shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

School officials say that having armed personnel - believed to be the first for any school system in Ohio - is designed to thwart incidents of violence and prevent what happened in Newtown, Conn., from occurring here.

"Sitting back and doing nothing and hoping it doesn't happen to you is just not good policy anymore. There is a need for schools to beef up their security measures," Supertendent Jamie Grime told The Blade today. "Having guns in the hands of the right people are not a hindrance. They are a means to protect."

Seriously, this is so stupid that it beggars belief.

The only people who will benefit from this decisions are the gag writers for Letterman, Leno, and the Daily Show, along, of course with the writing crew of The Simpsons.

If they don't do a show on arming Groundskeeper Willie now, they need to find a new job.
