This article is by kathleen moore so its more than likely facts are twisted or left out, however given whats written the school boards decision is ridiculous. A good teacher is one who can talk to kids in a way they can relate and understand. Also when are you peole going to wake up and realize kids need to be disciplined? They cant just do what they want when they want and have it be ok, thats whats wrong with our kids today. Again from the details provided here it sounds like the kid in question is fine and the school board is putting the pressure on him with the guilt of the firing. Listen to the people involved!

Gina, crack a beer and find a man, your too bored! Ms Margas, sit down with your husband one day and tell him to start being honest with you.

Ahh, Mezz you have revealed your age. I too am aware of Mr Riggi's extracurricular activities that did in fact land him in the gazette blotters. Of course that was a while ago before he was a politician and we know they, like reporters do no wrong. Especially not drink and drive after a council meeting or political fundraiser.

It amazes me how far the leaders of the gazette will allow writers to go to sell a paper. Not very long ago when a troubled young man walked into the lobby of the Daily Gazette armed with a deadly knife and in a state of mind where he obviously wanted to do harm, you same people called 911 frantically asking for help. Very soon after, these same young men from SPD who your bashing, showed up and placed themselves in harms way to protect gazette employees. Thanks to the professionalism and bravery of those officers noone was injured except the suspect. What were your feelings towards the officers that day? Or that night when you went home and hugged your kids or spouse while the officers where trying to explain to theirs why they had to shoot someone? They have a very difficult job and do it well, stop bashing them!

Marincic, your comments are spot on with the opinion of 99% of the SPD force and we thank you for your support. I dont believe however that cfield is NC, more like MC. Chaires doesnt have a fan left in that building,hes a horrible leader and lost the support of the guys long ago. The members of SPD do an excellent job in a very dangerous and unappreciated environment and like I said before under new leadership Im sure it will be better highlighted.

I want to be the first to thank and applaud the mayor and the council for restoring the police chief job. While finances have to be one of the top factors to consider given the situation the city is in, I appreciate the fact they took into consideration the advice of those being directly affected. The department will surely benefit from this decision. As for Chaires retiring "good riddance " and I'm sure you'll see an immediate improvement in operations.

I agree with Mr Spring, the issue is not the guns,its the mindset of the individuals using them. While having armed police officers in the school may not completely prevent a situation like this from happening, I as a parent would feel alot better knowing they were there and I would think those working in the school would feel the same.

Coach Bennetts decision actually shouldn't be that hard.Stevens stepped up and played like a veteran and I'm sure he ll do it again if he gets the call. Great job Colin and go Dutchmen!
