Let soldiers protect schools
I am writing this because of my concerns about the violence that is going on in the cities and towns all over the United States. The president says something has to be done. They may not be feasible, but I would like to offer my solutions.
First, I would start by bringing home most, if not all, of our troops. The use of soldiers for my suggestions would keep them off the unemployment roles and they could accomplish things that would be financially impossible if you had to hire from the private sector.
Every school in the U.S. would have two or three soldiers on duty. Just their presence should keep away any assassins and make parents feel at ease.
I would establish a hot line like 9-1-1 for families or students to call for help or advice if they have any suspicions.
You hear every day about the violence on our streets. The army has the military police. They could be trained for special law enforcement to work with the local police departments. The army vehicles and equipment could be used for patrolling the city streets at night in areas of high crime rates.
Something has to be done.
