Clinton Pledges Funds to Add Police to SchoolsWASHINGTON — Marking the first anniversary of the shooting deaths at Columbine High School, President Clinton announced $120 million in new federal grants Saturday to place more police officers in schools and help even the youngest kids cope with their problems."In our national struggle against youth violence we must not fail our children; our future depends on it," the president said in his weekly radio address.Clinton also unveiled the $60-million fifth round of funding for "COPS in School," a Justice Department program that helps pay the costs of placing police officers in schools to help make them safer for students and teachers. The money will be used to provide 452 officers in schools in more than 220 communities."Already, it has placed 2,200 officers in more than 1,000 communities across our nation, where they are heightening school safety as well as coaching sports and acting as mentors and mediators for kids in need," Clinton said.http://articles.latimes.com/2000/apr/16/news/mn-20323---It's really pathetic when a PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRAT not only calls for more armed guards in school, but also starts a hundred million dollar program to do just that....and not a lib complains. And it gets funded until....well, Obama gets into office....Which, incidentally.....OBAMA cut the funds to.....that program.But now? The libs are whining like little oinkers. Where were they went President Clinton 'took action'? crickets chirpingt.
