  • Maybe Huberman's only best move is hiring the ex-cop to deal with the theft in schools. I believe it is CPS's responsibility to make sure ALL school building alarms, Video systems, motion and other detectors are working throughout the system. Was Duncan and the clown running security to blame for the lack of getting the job done in schools to secure them?
