I don't think anyone is saying that these things don't also happen to white students. The claim here, supported by research and statistics that can be found by clicking on those red links, is that students of color (as well as students of all races with disabilities) are disproportionately subjected to them. I don't necessarily think that police in school is a bad thing. I support the plan of having a resource officer or two, especially at schools in neighborhoods where crime and drugs are prevalent. I don't, however, support the idea of very heavily armed police, armed teachers, or any sort of plan that turns schools into something that more closely resembles a prison. If we're going to be throwing money at this problem in order to pay for grenade launchers and more armed personnel, maybe we could use that money instead to provide additional staff in the way of counselors, psychologists, nurses, and social workers, who could help problem students better address their problems. Perhaps we couse use that money to reduce class sizes so that teachers could focus more attention on fewer students, making stronger and deeper connections that might help identify students who are struggling or even prevent this type of violence from happening in the first place. If the pro-gun people are arguing that this is a mental health issue, then let's spend our money addressing the mental health crisis.
