I'm a Cub Scout of Pack 678 and I'm currently working towards my Citizenship pin. One of my duties is to write to a newspaper (that's you) about an issue that I'm concerned about. Well, I'm concerned about school safety after the incident in Connecticut. I personally think that in every school there should be a security guard or policeman walking in the building to make sure no strangers come in to the building or any children bring any weapons in. I also think that every school should do a lock-down weekly so everybody is familiar with what to do if a stranger should come in the school.

Police in Georgia say they are investigating whether the suspect in a deadly shooting at an Atlanta-area megachurch is the same man convicted of chasing down a man and shooting him outside a Northwest Baltimore mosque in 2001. Floyd Lester Palmer, 51, is listed with the same name and birth date in court records from both incidents, which bear striking parallels. Palmer pleaded guilty to second-degree assault in the Maryland shooting - at a mosque where he was a security guard - and was later found not criminally responsible.

City and state legislators say they will push for greater regulation of longstanding but little-known laws that allow security guards to be granted law enforcement powers to arrest and search citizens. "If special police make sense, if they're necessary, and if they really do provide enhanced public safety, then at a minimum there needs to be oversight, accountability, training, and qualifications that are set by the state," Sen. Brian Frosh, who chairs the Judicial Proceedings Committee, said Monday.

The two men wore body armor with "POLICE" written across the chest and spilled out of their unmarked car, weapons drawn, ordering Christopher Dukes and his passenger out of their vehicle at a South Baltimore gas station parking lot. When Dukes pulled off, they embarked on a high-speed chase down Interstate 295 until catching up and placing the pair under arrest, charging documents show. Then it was time for the real police to take over. The men in the body armor were not Baltimore police officers or federal agents, but instead a little-known classification of security guards known as "special police," who are commissioned by the city or state to arrest and detain citizens - but only on specific properties.
