In Rochester Hills, Michigan: A High School With Stupidity So Stupid It Burns, Stupidly.

School Security theater is one thing.

Stupid School Security Theater is another.

Stupid School Security Theater run by complete flippin' morons is even worse.

Fox News: School Security Guard to Army Officer: You Can't Come In While Wearing Your Uniform

Yes,you read that correctly. A US Army Lieutenant Colonel was denied entry to Rochester Hills Adams High School with his wife and daughter who is a student there because

"he could not enter wearing the uniform because it could offend people"

Let the stupidity of that sink in for a minute.

Now, this was eventually sorted out, but only after he and his wife called the superintendent's office, who as a former Marine probably yelled "WTF!" once he heard about it.

The superintendent is now trying to repair the damage by stating that there is no policy barring uniformed military from the school and the district

will be working with administration and the firm that handles our security to make sure district policies are understood and communicated accurately."

It'll be fun to see who gets the blame for this first-class mess-up.

So glad we don't live in the Rochester Hills school district.

Military personnel in uniform (and with peaceful intent) are always welcome in my Home School.
