Banks are a bit more likely to be involved in a crimal act then a school. ;)

Depending on the location of a school, cameras might or might not be needed. In my small village on the small primairy school I went to we didn't had cameras, they still don't. Why? Because the school is basically only has 12-14 classrooms or so. The only type of alarm they had was a buglar alarm (motion sensors near the entrances). That system worked just fine.

I can imagen that in a bigger school it may be harder to keep track of peoples whereabouts and ensuring security/safety isn't as easy, so you may need camera's. Personally I do prefer no cameras at all, it violates peoples privacy. If cameras absolutely have to be placed, they should be kept to a minimum. Such as on my old highschool where they only monitored the acces to the "playsquare" infront of the building/extrance, te bicycle sheds, parking lot and the entrances themselves. Having cameras in the hallways and rooms should only be a last option when you are in a highly criminal and unsafe area. But then I wouldnt want to live there, I would move to a more safer school/area. :uhm:

Besides, all these cameras would need to be monitored all the time if you would want to intervere the moment a criminal act seems to be going on. Add a lot of cameras and you will need a lot more people to watch the cameras. Having somebody walk around the school, the school janitor/concierge(s), is usually more effective anyway. They can better judge what is going on when something is going on right infront of their eyes (or hearing distance). No, I much prefer a trusty person walking around a bit, who also knows "everybody" (smallschools ftw!) and thus will have a keen eye for incidents.

That being said, it sucks for the poor kid. I don't know to which extend to blame the school though. Did they just hire somebody without really paying attention if this person seemed trustworthy? Have they had their reasons not to let out more detail then they thought was needed? I do not know, I do hope that that the school atleast tried their best, they may have made error(s) though. If the school clearly showed lack of care or irresponsibility that would be bad ofcourse and action should be taken. But we can pass no verdict from rumors and newspaper messages, we were not there...

Schools and other public buildings shouldn't be build into fortresses, they should remain as open and accesable as possible. Again, depending on the enviroment/location you may need more or less security measures. Overdoing security, turnin a building into a prison while there is no need to is bad. Underdoing security is bad also. Leave it up to the experts (those who run these buildings or are involved with them and know what goes on around them) to take approperiate security measurements. In the end however, nothing can be made 100% save...

SpaZy;4215171let me clear a few things up. The United Arab Emirates is not run by "Muslim law" well it is, but its more westernized (not like Saudi) so basically whoever it was that said they would stone a girl to death, you are completely wrong, go research Dubai. Im also getting the idea from some gay posts that people are think Arabs did it, Wrong. Indians/Pakistanis did it. (but never go to the desert with an arab. thats another story) as for what happened at school i believe the janitors claimed to have "tried to help" the kid at taking a piss. i will try get a copy of the letter they sent out

well molesting them isn't going to help them void.

You've obviously never been to Britain then. :lol:

Well, except when it's the janitor doing this sort of thing.

well molesting them isn't going to help them void.

It probably would actually, but it's still completely and utterly wrong.
