I mentioned in an earlier post about me responding to what the author of Smart City Memphis blog wrote Wednesday about Memphis City Schools and securit. Here is the response I recieved:
"Kelvin Oliver: We agree with you. Our reasoning against MPD providing this and other security services is the existing tendency to criminalize so much juvenile behavior these days. Most of us who grew up a generation ago would have been alumni of Juvenile Court today. We think that on balance, Memphis City Schools is best at calibrating actions to be taken against students rather than police."As I enjoy my weekend, I hope you enjoy yours. TGIF!!
