The controversial bill, proposed by Rep. Emanuel “Chris” Welch, D-Westchester, would offer grants to schools that use funds meant for school security and instead spend it on mental health services, including hiring social workers or implementing other practices "designed to promote school safety and healthy environments

Oh yeah...bring a therapist to a gunfight involving an active shooter and see what happens.

Are they going to place signs on all the schools saying "Protected by therapists with degrees"? Gotta be sure that potential shooters understand the campus has protection in place.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

Maybe you're supposed to use the therapist's bodies for cover.

While there are a ton of mental health needs out there that are increasing rapidly, and most mass attacks are carried out by the severely mentally ill, Illinois is one of the last places that needs to cut back on security with Chicago's 58% spike in homicides.

Sadly paranoid schizophrenics who make criminal threats against themselves and others ... and refuse to take their medication... are typically released from custody after a day or 2. They freely roam our cities and too often hurt or kill:

Machete-wielding ex-A&M player who killed White Rock jogger deemed unfit for trial
...Johnson spent three days in a court ordered psychiatric facility where there was finally a clinical diagnosis of schizophrenia. Upon release, he refused all treatment. Over the next two years of Johnson’s life, he struggled with both mental health and substance abuse. His family was at a loss for how to help him when he became delusional and resistant to treatment.

Institutionalization is the only answer for people like Johnson who refuse treatment or for whom treatment is ineffective.

Why only schools?

If this is such a great idea, then all Illinois police should also be replaced with licensed therapists. The dem leaders in that state could start by replacing their personal security details with therapists. That would undoubtedly make the entire state safer.

C'mon, let's not be harsh.

Leftists believe in magic.

They're not just idealists.

They're lost...

Try living in the jungle with an idealists idea of survival.

You' ll die quickly.

A realistic view of life is harsh, but it can be accomplished though it's very, very difficult.

Ask any of the 10 percent of soldiers who do the fighting to survive and win...by this I mean only 10% of soldiers actually do the fighting, the rest are for support, like cooks, truck drivers, etc.

Oh, I don't think most of us 10% aren't to be pitied, we' make it.

The title of this thread sounds like the opening lines of a stand-up comedian.

Or someone on heavy medication with zero appreciation of what day or time it is...

Spending money on headshrinkers to prevent kids going postal sounds a lot more useful than spending it on SRO who hide behind their cars when the manure hits the fan.

Just saying.
