School Cop Convicted Of Faking His Own Shooting

Jeff Stenroos, an LAUSD police officer who shot himself last year and then blamed it on an imaginary gunman, prompting officials to lockdown nine schools, was convicted by Van Nuys Superior Court Judge Richard N. Kirschner of five of the six counts against him. The judge also ordered him to undergo a psychological exam at a state prison, according to the Los Angeles Times.

There are, however, larger questions that remain unresolved, such as whether or not LAUSD will continue to lock students in classrooms for hours at a time, without access to food, water or restrooms, for every little disturbance, including hoaxes or whether LAUSD continue to hire bumbling fools with guns to “protect” their students?

Ultimately, though, I think we can all breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Stenroos had enough sense to shoot himself in the bulletproof vest, rather than shooting wildly into the air and accidentally hitting a student.
