Number of Quebec Team arrests troubling

I was shocked to read the Springfield Police Quebec Team made 87 arrests in City schools between the day schools opened in Sept. and Nov. 5. I wonder why there isn't more public discussion of this situation from School Committee members, Superintendent Ingram, the PTOs (or parents and teachers generally) at impacted schools, or local print and electronic media. Your article on the memo responding to School Committee member Antonette Pepe's concerns (concerns, not necessarily allegations) indicated that the Superintendent and Police Commissioner Fitchet believe all is going well with the Quebec Team. It seems to me that if the Quebec Team needed to make so many arrests in less than two months, something is seriously wrong and somebody should be addressing the situation.
