Unless I’ve missed something, there doesn’t seem to have been a call to give pistols to school bus drivers.
Charles Poland Jr., the bus driver shot to death by Jimmy Lee Dykes in Midland City, Ala., didn’t have a gun. Instead, he blocked the door when Dykes stepped onto the bus Jan. 29 and demanded to be given a couple of children.
Dykes shot and killed the unarmed Poland, and then snatched a 5-year-old boy and ran to an underground bunker. On Monday the cops stormed in, killed Dykes and rescued the boy.
Thank God for a good outcome.
