COMPTON, Calif. (KABC) — High-powered rifles in the hands of Compton School Police: Do they protect students, or are they a danger to them? Compton officials defend their new policy.
As Compton students return to school, campus police will have new weapons in their arsenal: AR-15 semiautomatic rifles. Compton school officials are justifying that decision. They approved the rifles during the summer break.
Trained Compton School Police officers will have the AR-15 rifle, the civilian version of the M-16, for the first time.
“How are they securing them?” said Compton parent Danny Luna.
