Quotes

"I personally believe in Jesus Christ as my lord saviour, but I'm also a killer. I’ve killed a lot. And if I need to, I'll kill a whole bunch more. If you don't want to get killed, don't show up in front of me, it's that simple. I have no problem with it. God did not raise me to be a coward" Mr Page said, before warning the audience that he believes the government will put kids in indoctrination camps
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar has apologized for Page's remarks, telling CNN the comments do " not represent the rank-and-file of the St Louis County Police Department."
...can also be resolved by a triangulation between the student/family, the teacher/school administration and a student council," says the advisory. "A more difficult situation then may not be so much a discipline issue but a psychological one that needs professional attention and care."
"We are pretty much relaxing our posture in as much as we can in different ways, even to include how we deploy" Belmar said, adding that he wants his officers "leaning up on a storefront talking about Cardinal baseball."
