High School Teacher Suspended for Saying He Supports Teachers Being Armed

Guest post by John S. Roberts at Right Observer:

History teacher Timothy Lock said he supported teachers being armed.

For that, he was suspended.

From Daily Caller:

A New Jersey high school teacher has been suspended from his job for expressing support for arming teachers after the Parkland school shooting.

Cherry Hill High School history teacher Timothy Lock, 59, said he was placed on administrative leave last week because he spoke out in one of his classes about arming teachers and ramping up school security to try and prevent a school shooting.

Most of the students reportedly didn’t have a problem with Lock’s comments, but one decided to report him to the administration. His bag was searched and he was required to undergo a physical and psychological exam.

More from Philly:

“All I have ever done for that school is for my students and for their parents,” Locke said.

Locke said he has mentioned in the past that Cherry Hill East has been compared to Columbine, based on demographics, something the New York Times pointed out in 2000. He also voiced concerns about the lack of armed police officers in the school.

Cherry Hill Police Chief William Monaghan said the two officers stationed at the school work for the school district, not his department. Locke and several students said the two officers, listed as “campus police” on the school’s website, are not armed.

What is happening in this nation?

Wasn’t all this liberal nonsense supposed to end on November 8, 2016?
