    DARE is a great program.One of my children was in that program when it began in Middlesex with Officer Scott Young.

    Any one of us can make a mistake including police officers. Those that think only the other guy can make inept decisions after having a few beers should remember this news story.

    Several studies over the years conclude that DARE is an ineffective program that does NOT achieve what its implementers desire but continue to use it.

    Perhaps due to laziness to create and implement a program that actually does reach the desired goal?

    Maybe the typical entrenched bureaucracies following a well-worn path that does not reach the wanted "destination?"

    Well, being a DARE officer is a well-paid position and ultimately leads to a secure pension paid for by taxpayers with regular COLA (cost of living) increases, typically excellent health benefits and when compared to what the vast majority of citizens in the private sector obtain is FAR FAR better than what the "commoners" can ever attain.

    And, look for the data that will pro

    You act like you have to be born privledged to become a police officer. Give me a break. If you want the same benefits they have then go get the trainiing and make the same commitment that they do. Otherwise remain lazy sit on your butt and whine about being a commoner. The choice is yours. I really tire of the pathetic whining of people that are unwilling to better themselves.

    You need to take a pill. Most police officers do a fantastic job. They have a passion for their work. The only problem is they have to be recruited from the human race. That's where you come in. As a human being you can choose to be a good person or a bad person. That's up to you. From your post you sound like you are mad all cops. What happened? Did get your toes stepped on? As for this particular police officer, I think it safe to say they should have used past tense in writing the article. He was a police officer, and he was a school resource officer - but no more.

    the police are hypocrits, cops have a high rate of alcoholism and domestic assault. In other words they commit the same crimes and have the same problems they arrest people for. There are some good cops, but many are no better than the scum they arrest.
