YOUR TURN: In favor of a school police force

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Tyler Shinstock. Shinstock wrote in to comment on the plan by Memphis City School Superintendent Kriner Cash to establish a special police force for the school district. Shinstock is all for it.

In his words:

I watched the story on whether or not Memphis schools should have police enforcement in them. I say, YES! How are you supposed to teach students if they're worried whether or not they're going to make it home in one piece? Just my personal opinion -- I felt safe when I was in high school, because I had just one police officer there at the school all eight hours of the school day. I am only 19, and I'm probably speaking for a large percentage of the student body. Please, put security in these schools!

That's Tyler Shinstock's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
