Armed vigilantes in schools? What could possibly go wrong?

Armed vigilantes to protect schools? What could possibly go wrong?
Sheriff Joe "Birther" Arpaio has a plan to protect the 50 schools in his jurisdiction. Cops? You don't know Joe. Crazy Joe wants to put members of a "volunteer posse" in every school. You read that right. Crazy Joe thinks the way to keep our kids safe is to put armed vigilantes in every school.
Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio said he plans to send members of his department’s volunteer “posse” to patrol schools as a response to the Dec. 14 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
Arpaio said his plan, which he hopes to put into effect next week, would have volunteers providing security at 50 schools that fall under his jurisdiction. According to the station, the group of about 3,000 members includes 300 to 400 allowed to carry weapons 
 What could possibly go wrong? Flashback to another vigilante in Joe's jurisdiction...

Border vigilante and convicted murderer Shawna Forde on patrol

Shawna Forde, a border vigilante, was convicted today of two counts of murder for orchestrating a home invasion that left a 9-year-old Arizona girl and her father dead. 
Prosecutors said Forde planned the home invasion to rob Raul "Junior" Flores, who she (wrongly) thought was a drug dealer, to fund her border watch group. There were rumors that Flores, 29, had a stash of $4,000 in cash in the house. 
Flores and his daughter Bresenia were both killed in the May 2009 attack at their Arivaca, Ariz., home. His wife, Gina Gonzalez, was shot three times, but survived by playing dead.
 Yeah, great idea, Crazy Joe. Tell ya what, why don't you go back to your paranoid wingnut loon Birther conspiracy. Sure, it's crazy and stupid, like you, but it won't get anyone killed.
