It is awful that the students behaved that way toward a police officer. I am surprised, however, that he couldn't handle 5-7 year old children who were disrespectful. He is a law enforcement officer who probably deals with much tougher situations with adults.
He was trained to deal with *adult* criminals. His training is not appropriate for dealing with young children. MANY SROs are finding this to be a problem in their school settings. He came to me for advice today. He needs to keep his bond with these kids. Many of them have a hatred or fear of police officers, because of their experiences at home. So he has done a great job getting to know them, and winning their trust. Please realize that it's not ALL of the kids behaving this way!! It's just a handful of little jerks who need to be set straight.
