Stillwater students stage a walkout…
…and I can hear you tuning out already, thinking this is just another bit of canned outrage, with “woke” teachers and administrators using students as their pawns, but hear me out…
…in favor of “Back the Blue“.
A group of Stillwater Area High school students walked out of class Thursday morning to show support for police officers.
Students were encouraged to wear blue and bring thin blue line flags.
Look – I’m not a police fanboy. I think bad cops get the same treatment as bad criminals; being a bad cop is a betrayal of the trust (and power) the public gives them. I’m conservative enough to know why we need poice – and libertarian enough to want just enough policing.
And we don’t have just enough of it in the Metro. Not even close .
But let’s focus on the kids. The fact that some of them are being heard against the woke mob is encouraging. With a little luck, and good parenting, perhaps they’ll start engaging the commies in the classroom, too
This is to be supported.
