- The Washington Times - Wednesday, July 31, 2013


John Whitehead’s Commentary piece “Turning public schools into forts” (July 30) cites the dangers to personal liberty he perceives from high-tech security measures. The greater danger is from the high technology used by drug traffickers to facilitate production and distribution of their poisonous products among innocent and vulnerable schoolchildren. When children’s lives are protected from the very real threats of drugs and violence in schools, then I will become concerned about the perceived intrusion upon their freedom that Mr. Whitehead imagines.
