Show the Madison school board you support police in schools.
Show the disrupters that they cannot
silence parents and taxpayers.
I am asking you do something hard. I am asking that you attend a school board committee meeting TODAY from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 25 in the auditorium of the Madison Metro School District administration building, 545 W. Dayton St.
It is no exaggeration to say that the safety of our children and the future of our city is at stake.
This committee is considering kicking police out of our troubled high schools.
This committee, already very liberal, is being pressured by a group of 40 to 50 radical, anti-cop social justice warriors who subscribe to the bogus “school-to-prison pipeline” theory. They actually claim that police “are trained to kill black kids.”
These are the same Derail the Jail crew who shut down the Dane County Board when it was considering improving the jail. The same people who have been hounding Police Chief Koval.
At the school board committee’s meeting last week, these disrupters resorted to what Police Chief Mike Koval calls “a choreographed and orchestrated show of force. It is daunting, it is meant to intimidate.” I know, I was “swarmed”! A mother’s smart phone was slapped to the floor and her son followed to his ultimate frisbee game.
We will NOT stoop to their level. We will be peaceful. We will be respectful.
WHAT: School Board committee on cops in the schools
WHEN: 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. TODAY Wednesday, July 25
WHERE: Doyle administration building, 545 W. Dayton St.
Come early, come late. Stay a little while or long. No need to testify. Just bear witness with your presence to demonstrate that the disrupters represent no one but their own selfishness. Oh, maybe raise your smart phone on high to record their acting out.
Please attend regardless of your residency, just as the disrupters do.
