Maybe they could ban backpacks, but I think New York does a great job with protection. We’ve been there before; we know what to do.
What they do right now is phenomenal. They do a lot to protect us.
I think we need more security and find out more about people going to school in our country. It’s scary.
I think there should be more security.
I don’t think there is much anyone can do. These people can look like anyone.
I think that’s very difficult to do these days. I have a friend in the police department; I know it’s difficult to ensure safety. We might need police in plain clothes and FBI too. We need different levels of security. I don’t think the city can be 100 percent secure.
I think what they’re implementing this week in the city, the clear plastic bags, is a good idea. I think everything should be in a clear plastic bag so you can see exactly what everyone’s carrying.
I think we need more police and bag checks.
