Geraldo Rivera (Sort of) Admits: Guns Needed in Schools

SandyHookBookIt was, likely, unintentional, but mere hours following the Newtown, CT slaughter of a classroom full of children and half-a-dozen school personnel, TV journalist Geraldo Rivera conceded that guns ought to be in America’s public schools. Near the wrap-up of a tearful discussion about the mass-murder, the colorful Fox News fixture avowed to host Bill O’Reilly that, hereafter,  “every school” ought to have a full-time police officer present to foreclose any repeat of Friday’s bloody travesty.

An hour later on Sean Hannity’s program, former New York City detective Bo Dietl essentially echoed Geraldo’s prescription (tossing in the retired/off-duty policeman/hired security officer option, as well). 

The full version of this column is now only available in Doug Giles’ book, “Sandy Hook Massacre: When Seconds Count, The Police Are Minutes Away”.
