NYPD removed one of the last armed officers from city schools, even as armed protection of students takes center stage nationwide, Breitbart reports.

The New York Post reported:

As the nation mourned the 17 victims of the school massacre at Parkland, Fla., the NYPD was removing Sgt. Raul Espinet from his post at Francis Lewis HS in Fresh Meadows, Queens — where he had worked for more than a dozen years. Parents, teachers and students are livid over the beloved cop’s departure.

“It’s ridiculous. All over the country they are telling you ‘arm the teachers, get an officer in your school.’ New York City had a designated officer and they are actually cutting the program . . . they are making us less secure.  You are talking about 5,000 people in a one-block radius, and you’re telling me you can’t designate one officer” ~ Francis Lewis PTA co-president Linda Lovett

Teachers and students spoke about Officer Sgt. Raul Espinet,  they agreed that he brought a sense of safety to students and faculty alike, that he checked to make sure doors were locked, built rapport with students–who then confided in him, and even “took troubled teens under his wing.”

Mayor de Blasio’s new strategy is community policing units, they are tasked with visiting schools while patrolling neighborhoods.  The Mayor said it is simply too expensive to place Officer’s in the 1700 schools.

“Adding an armed police officer in each school building would place an enormous fiscal burden on the City’s budget. Assuming that an armed officer were deployed in the same manner as school safety agents, in approximately 1,400 schools, the cost of this proposal is estimated to be $1.2 billion annually,” de Blasio

Once again, proof that this is not about children’s safety, they do not care about protecting the children nor providing them safe environment to learn.

“There are school shootings everywhere, and they took the one armed officer away from a school with 4,000 kids in it.  Who is there to protect us?” ~ sophomore Josephine Li

Some elected officials have called on de Blasio to place an armed and uniformed police officer in every school. Helping to lead the charge are City Councilmen Joe Borelli and Steven Matteo, who represent districts on Staten Island, and that borough’s president, James Oddo, Newsweek reports.

There is still at least one safety agent in each New York City public school. Those agents are part of the New York City Police Department but are unarmed.

It makes one wonder if these lunatics are baiting the schools for more active shooters so they can force their agenda through congress.  I do not put it past them to use the lives of our youth to carry out their anti-gun bills.

Gun free zones, no LEO at schools and attempting to ban AR-15’s do nothing but create more victims.  These are the lunatics in congress that believe they can tell you how and when your children can be safe.
