Poor job liberal media

I’ve discovered Gary Frank’s opinion items to be informative and succinctly said. His newest, describing the liberal media’s poor job in overlaying actual problems with consequence for Individuals was refreshing. Watching CNN or Fox Information, at the least you knew the supply of the information story would lean left or proper. Now, ABC, NBC and CBS are a part of the liberal media bias. The Related Press isn’t any higher. Individuals have to get honest and balanced information.

Double normal?

Let’s see how this performs out (“Protesters enter State Home,” 2/10/22). In studying this story I didn’t see the phrase “rebel” talked about as soon as, but this seems to be precisely just like the Jan. 6 “rebel.”

Granted that clearly was bigger and resulted in accidents and loss of life however these individuals who stormed the State Home pushed employees, disobeyed police and trespassed within the state capitol, sounds similar to me.

Now let’s have a look at why this story might be gone tomorrow, no person mentioned the phrases Donald Trump so this sort of “rebel” is OK with the authorities and the media.

PS: Any individual ought to inform Charlie Baker that the remainder of the nation had to return to work already, it should be good to not should abide.

Police in colleges

Kudos to of us like Rev. Eugene Rivers and to Isabella Harris who’s main Black Moms Peace Initiative, who wish to know why college students are being left with out police safety in opposition to violence inside many Boston public colleges (“Black mother group desires police in colleges,” Boston Herald, Feb. 10).

The Indignant Mother motion has made it into the town of Boston. Moms throughout the nation at the moment are talking out on faculty insurance policies nationwide from curriculum to security. Persons are refusing to be victims of unhealthy insurance policies and are able to problem those that are accountable for coverage not doing their jobs and never listening to oldsters.

Within the case of the Boston Public Colleges, as Rev. Rivers identified, those that run our colleges have to respect the voices of the neighborhood’s moms. Dad and mom want to lift their sturdy voices collectively. In 2020, due to the push for police reform, the requirement for every faculty having a college useful resource officer ended. Boston Public Colleges may have skilled its faculty police to grow to be particular law enforcement officials however selected not to take action.

Consequently, these faculty “police” mainly grew to become mall cops with no police powers. The one time the police might be known as into a college constructing is through a 9-1-1 name. I assume the one motive that Metropolis Corridor didn’t go together with further coaching to make the college police a particular police pressure greater than probably was as a consequence of elevated prices. Did they assume it was actually potential to have colleges protected on a budget?

I consider it’s incumbent on Mayor Wu and the Boston Metropolis Council to get on the identical web page because the rising variety of offended mother and father who need their children protected at school. Simply one other instance of how the Defund the Police mentality continues to be alive within the metropolis of Boston.
