While I am not surprised that the whiny Newtown parents are actually hypocrites that don’t really care about child safety, it was shocking for me to see that they are so open about it:
“Newtown voters on Tuesday rejected town and school budgets that contained an extra $770,000 to cover the cost of hiring new police officers and security guards for Newtown’s public and private schools.
Legislative Council chairman Jeff Capeci said: “At the end of the day, Newtown voters thought it was too much of an increase.”
Yeah, it’s not like there’s childrens’ lives at stake or anything.
They had no problem loudly and obnoxiously agitating for unconstitutional state laws that will cost many millions of dollars to implement (and will end up bankrupt and ineffective like Canada’s now-scrapped registration scheme), but when it is coming our of their own wallets, child safety is apparently not important enough to pay for.
I shouldn’t be so hard on them I guess. It takes a lot of money to pay for their mansions, pleasure boats, and zoning restrictions that keep minorities out of Newtown. They might not have any cash leftover to protect their own kids.
I wonder if sad-sack crybaby Neil Heslin will drag his framed paintings to the town budget meetings to protest this dangerous breach of child safety?
