Parkland Students Are Showing Their Disdain for Their New Clear Backpacks


As a result of the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School which claimed the lives of 17 people, increased security measures have been put in place to help protect the children sent there to learn. Some of the measures are less practical than others, however. For instance, the high school recently instituted a rule which requires all students to store their things in a clear, plastic backpack, which was provided by the school. Students weren't at all thrilled about the new rule and questioned its logic on Twitter.

In fact, students at MSDH are pretty tired of most of the added security measures.

In many of their opinions, the money spent on backpacks would have been much better elsewhere.

The clear backpacks certainly seem like they might work better in theory than in practice.

Case in point:

Plus, everyone gets to see all your possessions! Fun!

It will certainly make certain standard school moments a bit more awkward...

At the end of the day, however, the issue foremost in the mind of Parkland students is still gun control.

They believe gun reform is the only real solution to gun violence.

So were the backpacks a good idea?

TW: There are a lot of horrible crimes disclosed here. Violent.

Prison is a horrifying place. It is brimming with society's worse. And the people who work and patrol those prisons are living in fear on the daily. Now not everyone is pure evil but plenty are, and those who keep us safe from these people lay their loves down, probably with not enough pay. Imagine spending day in and day out with murderers and lunatics? No thanks.

Hold my beer!

We all know Murphy's Law is real. And never, NEVER say... "So what next?" That is just calling on the spirits of evil to mess with you. Life is a struggle and sadly some moments are met with sorrow then met with hardship and then misery. It's a wonder we all get out alive..... Oh. Wait.

Warning: This is adult subject matter. Escorting is an arduous job. And it is a job. Maybe not one we'd all love to do but it's work none the less, especially when you have to mess with someone you may not find the most "aesthetically appealing." The workers in the trade have an endless well of stories to tell us. And you know we're dying to hear. Our questions on this topic are bottomless.
