CCSD employees are held to a higher standard than the rest of the public because of their unique position of authority and responsibility. Legislation has ensured that NV comes down hard on anyone using their position as a sword instead of a shield. It would go a long way toward making connections with citizens if LVMPD shows that they are willing to police their own and establish an air of accountability. We will be monitoring the story.

One bullet per pedophile works.

Wait... how is this even possible? I thought "background checks" were the holy grail of ensuring safety... you mean to tell me that they don't work? That even people who pass background checks can commit crimes?

Background checks might not be perfect, but they help. As a law abiding citizen I don't mind.
