School resource officers are responding to President Trump's remarks that they are merely armed guards and that they don't love children the way that teachers do. Trump's comments were directed at Broward County Deputy Scot Peterson, who resigned from his post as a school resource officer in Parkland, Florida, after he did not intervene to stop the school shooter there.

Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with Don Bridges, president of the National Association of School Resource Officers.
