Los Angeles School Police Chief Todd Chamberlain resigned following a decision by the school board to cut millions in funding and remove officers from campuses.

Chamberlain, who stepped into the job just last year, turned in his resignation on Wednesday, according to district spokeswoman Shannon Haber, the Los Angeles Times reported. With over 35 years in law enforcement, Chamberlain made the decision one day after the school board gave in to what he called a “potentially life-threatening” choice to cut the school police budget by $25 million.

“After humbly serving my communities, department and personnel over 35 years in Law-Enforcement, I have been placed in a position that makes my ability to effectively, professionally and safely impact those groups unachievable,” the former police chief said in a statement.

We need a complete American city collapse for people to change voting patterns in these cities. It may just happen. Most no longer need to enter these s holes.

Rather than give a powerful resignation statement, he should have just said something like....

Good Luck. Don’t say I didn’t tell you, because I told you. Buh-bye.

Half the students in Los Angeles Unified are illegal. Here illegally yet educated by legal taxpayers. This is unsustainable to use a favorite catch word of the left. NEA must be happy as their member teachers get threatened, slapped around and abused.

I’m sure the social workers will handle things just fine.

Under the new mandate, school police cannot be armed, cannot use pepper spray, cannot patrol off-campus, and cannot wear a uniform on campus.

I hope the teachers enjoy get the crap beat out of them when they try to teach student spelling and math.

Snatch a win out of defeat: homeschool or charter school. Ask Samaritan’s Purse to plop a school right in the middle of LA and teach the Gospel.

“The Blackboard Jungle.”

Exactly. I wonder what the teachers think about this?

It will be a total collapse of that school system. The ferals in that school system will start acting out and find no consequences for their actions. The other kids will see what's happening and copycat to feel "bad". No one will be able to hold a class, no learning will occur, and there will be no point in having a school building except to serve breakfast and lunch to the illegals. That's what happened in NYC and that's what will happen there.

The first teacher to be assaulted (and it won’t take long once in-person classes resume) should clean up (assuming they live through the assault, of course).

We don’t need police in schools. This is not a police state.

Likely less a resignation than a gold-plated retirement.

He’ll laugh all the way to the bank.
