School police cleared to carry AR-15s in Compton, California – Washington Times

As critics question the militarization of police in light of ongoing unrest in St. Louis, some California residents are expressing similar concerns over a new measure that allows Compton school officers to carry AR-15 rifles.

As Compton students head back to school Monday, parents are expressing concern about a school board policy passed in July that allows campus police to carry semi-automatic rifles in their trunks while on duty, according to KPCC, a Southern California public radio station.

You probably still think Compton is the same black ghetto famed in gangsta rap and incendiary history.

It isn’t.

The Hispanics won the ethnic cleansing battle, and Compton is not now a barrio, not a ghetto.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. The irony, it is bitter on the tongue. We took this country from dark-skinned people, because they did not have the ability to stop us.

    We will lose this country to dark-skinned people, because we do not have the will to stop them.

    What goes around, it comes around. Ah, well. It is good that I am a philosopher, and can console myself that nations get just about what they deserve. You can destroy a nation by eradicating their infrastructure, or by eradicating their sense of community.

    The latter course is better, because the victor can enjoy the spoils. Until they spoil.

    • I agree, but in this particular case, it seems that the lighter-skinned people (Hispanics) are taking territory from the darker-skinned blacks.

      And neither of them seem to be making significant inroads on Beverly Hills.

      Not saying they won’t, but it will be by government fiat if they do, and right now, the people who control Beverly Hills also control the government. (Golden Rule: Those who have the gold, rule).

      • Compton, that’s what you’re talking about.

        Look to the border.

        You don’t think inroads are being made in Beverly Hills? That political accommodations aren’t being made to Hispanics? I know that they are in Northwest Arkansas. That’s what happens when you get too good to mow your own grass, or raise your own kids, or walk your own dog, or pluck your own chickens, or till your own fields.

        Tell me, friends. Does it make sense to teach those who will be ‘caring’ for you in your declining years that you are the root cause for their debased condition?

        Really? Then I’ve been misinformed. That’s happened before.

        • You don’t think inroads are being made in Beverly Hills? That political accommodations aren’t being made to Hispanics?

          Well, no, not in the sense that illegal immigrant Hispanics or poor blacks are moving there in even infinitesimal numbers.

          Are political accomodations being made? Sure, but in the end, those accomodations are being made to get Hispanic votes. And I’m no longer convinced that votes or voters matter all that much in the way America is run any longer.

          I know, I’m bitter and cynical. And probably racist. But there you are.
