‘High-Five Fridays’ for Police and Students Are Killed by the Left | It’s Important To Keep Kids Afraid of Cops

‘High-Five Fridays’ for Police and Students Are Killed by the Left | LifeZette

“A Massachusetts police department has ended a program called “High-Five Fridays” that brought local law enforcement into schools to greet elementary students. Why? Because residents raised concerns that the sight of uniformed police in the halls might scare minority children, undocumented children, or children who have had negative experiences with police.

There’s one problem with this thinking: Ninety percent of Northampton is white, according to the most recent U.S. Census data. Another problem: Kids are getting exactly the wrong message about law enforcement when positive and “hands on” interactions with local police are now being eliminated.”
