(RightIsRight.co) – On Tuesday evening, in the wake of the horrific massacre at Robb Elementary School in Texas earlier in the day, Golden State Warriors Basketball Coach Steve Kerr used his pregame press conference to criticize Republican U.S. Senators, who he blames for not passing what he believes are needed gun control laws.
Over the last several years, Kerr has become a celebrity with leftists for his repeated rants and attacks aimed at conservatives, most notably Donald Trump.
Yet, as more than one observer has noted, Kerr has a record of demanding that armed police be removed from public schools — especially schools with high percentages of people of color.
As was noted almost exactly two years ago (June 23, 2020) by nbcbayarea.com in a piece headlined “Warriors’ Kerr Backs Effort to Remove Police From Oakland Schools“:
“Kerr on Tuesday joined students and parents in Oakland who are calling for the school district to eliminate its police force…
“This is a real reckoning for much of America, especially white America,” said Kerr as he spoke to the crowd.
“He joined dozens of Oakland Unified School district parents and students who are calling for the district to dismantle its internal police force...
“The district – which is facing a multi-million dollar budget shortfall – currently employs 10 officers. On Wednesday, the district will take up a measure to dissolve the department and replace the force with non-uniformed “peacekeeping ambassadors.”
“You really have to listen to the community in terms of what’s happening and what’s best for the community,” said Kerr.” [emphasis added]
There’s no word from Kerr today as to whether, in light of the slaughter of 19 schoolchildren and two teachers this wee, he has changed his mind about removing police officers from school.
