    ARMED PART 3: The Guardians

    ARMED PART 3: The Guardians

    After the mass shooting at Parkland, a new law required that every school in the state of Florida had to have someone armed on campus at all times. The cheapest way to fill that requirement? For schools to let their teachers or other staff carry a gun. We take you to two schools in neighboring districts in the first week of school in the midst of new COVID protocols — one that embraces arming staff as the only solution, and one that resists arming staff, only to find themselves boxed into a corner. This is the third episode of a three part series about arming teachers.

    ARMED PART 1: Soft Targets

    For the past two years, producer Jen Kinney has been looking into the movement to arm teachers in schools, and what it means for students, teachers, staff and parents when teachers start to carry guns in the classroom. Part 1 of this three-part series follows Cooper Caffrey, who was shot by a classmate in eighth grade. A few years later, his Ohio school decided to arm its teachers. Cooper’s school is one of many in 19 states that have armed staff. We take you inside the fight that divided the school.

Great reporting.

They know what they are doing and do it well.

Straight Trash

The trash you’d expect from the edgy “news” site that sends hipsters to dirty countries and profits from filming locals without compensation.
