Perhaps you heard the news: In New Mexico, five adults each face 11 charges of child abuse related to the neglect and abuse of the children discovered in squalid conditions in the desert.

A fresh news report from states that “All five of the defendants in the New Mexico child abuse case were under investigation based upon “the training of children with weapons in furtherance of a conspiracy to commit school shootings,’ according to criminal complaints filed in district court on Wednesday.”

They were training kids/students to shoot up a school. Not adults – students. Not crazed strangers – kids who looked like they had a perfect right to be on the campus.

No fence, clear backpack, or badge would have stopped these kids. OBTW, there’s a workaround for campus metal detectors, too.

Just another reminder of the massive lapse in judgment of the well-paid bureaucrats in the N-MUSD and of why we need new trustees starting this year.
