crossing guard

Original post made by leigh on Sep 21, 2013

Article about a crossing guard in Los Altos arrested for stealing lap tops - this guy was arrested before. We are trusting criminals to safely have our kids across busy streets. Who hires these people?

Ha, just because he steals laptops doesn't mean he doesn't care about children! In fact, since he has the bravery to steal laptops, he is probably a good crossing guard because he is brave enough to step into the street to stop the cars. There are some crossing guards who are too wimpy and they make the kids wait too long because they are scared of the cars.

November 2007 PA Online story -- Web Link -- "A brother, Nate Burpee, is a senior and varsity football player at Gunn High School."

Irrelevant trivia, but there was a certain familiarity about the surname reported in other media this weekend.
