I think the school is Lincoln in Brooklyn. The students held a rally yesterday to protest the amount of police they encounter in their school. One kid was caught with a knife going through the metal detector on the way to the rally. This is a known trouble spot. I would welcome the police if I went there. The parents would be the first to complain if a riot happened.

Exactly...these kids dont realize that the only reason there ARE cops there is because kids are bringing weapons in and assaulting each other and teachers.
The city would probably love to deploy those cops in other places - its not like they're purposely messing with these kids' lives.
