Nine million views is rare air for a Twitter clip, especially a news segment. But this is the feelgood video of the year.
The key line is “The school has just been happy — and you can feel it.” There are other ways to reduce violence in schools that don’t require parents to patrol the grounds during their down time but the vibe from having a cop in the cafeteria is verrrry different from the one kids get from a bunch of dads cracking jokes at them.
