    A father of two children at Gower Elementary School in Nashville, TN. decided to stand guard outside the front entrance to the school. He is an former staff sergeant who got his fatigues out of the attic, put them on and is standing outside the school as long as the school is open. He is not paid and has the school's permission. He apparently is not armed. I think he plans to do this until the school lets out for the holidays. His children are 6 and 7 years old.

    548 is just a forum troll who mouths off to spark a reaction. He claims to be in law enforcement. I have a strong suspicion he has feminine tendencies and was likely bullied in school. Now that he has a badge he uses it to try get back at society for allowing his bullied childhood. In other words he's a wuss. I highly doubt he would have the balls to call this Marine a show off to his face. That is just the way his type acts.


    What I see in this Marine is love for his two children and will do what it takes to make sure they are safe.

    Liberal mentality:

    Ex-Marine stands guard at his children's school= Showoff

    Black Panthers "standing guard" at a polling place during two separate elections= perfectly fine

    This is a good thought. What we really need is someone to guard the mentally dangerous individuals. God bless this marine. I'm sure the children feel safe and love him for his gesture.

    I was in Nashville yesterday. Wish I had known of this--I would have gone by the school and thanked that marine for not only protecting the lives of those children, but my life and the lives of my kids too.

    A man wearing his utes, went around pulling on all the doors at a school here in Wisconsin, he said he was testing the security of the school, he was promptly arrested for causing a disturbance and scaring the people inside the school.
    Not all good intentions are smart decisions.

    If he's not carrying a gun, he is useless against someone that is. Good gesture on his part, but they should let him carry.

    But the nutcases won't KNOW if he's carrying or not. For that matter, probably no one does. And that's the way it should be.
