FONSECA SHOW 08/09/17

ON THE SHOW TODAY WE TALK ABOUT SCHOOL TASERS, TIGER WOODS AND AN EMAIL.

The number of school resource officers carrying tasers may double from last year’s numbers. Supporters say the tasers are a great deterrent and protect students and teachers from potentially dangerous situations. Critics say children are an easy target for overzealous school resource officers.

Local Survey: With school about to start, ask your audience, “Do you think school resource officers should be allowed to carry and use tasers? Why or why not?”

Dear Fonseca:

My heart sunk while watching The Bachelorette on Monday night because I felt like Rachel. I have been dating my boyfriend for two years and am ready to commit to marriage. He is like Peter on the show and not ready to put a ring on my finger. I’m at a crossroads. I love him, but don’t know if I should wait until he is ready. He has no time frame whatsoever. I am sure I am not the only listener who has gone through this. What would you do if you were me… stay or go?
