LAUSD Lights Up School in Broad Daylight on a Sunday

This photo was taken about 4:30 p.m. today, a Sunday, in front of the gate to Roy Romer Middle School in North Hollywood.  It's a Sunday.  It's still daylight out.  The LAUSD says it has no money and is asking for more money.  We're supposed to be green and save electricity.  Why then is the LAUSD wasting money and harming the environment lighting up a school with powerful flood lights, during the day and when no one at all is on campus?

Because somewhere in the world there is darkness and it is the job of LAUSD to lead them into the light.

That school is in Galatzan's district. The favorite of the DWP.

Ok, so we have supervision, accountability and attitude going on here. Can you expect anyone at LAUSD to give a shit about anything other than the benefits and pension? Perhaps if they acted like they were responsible and on the hook for their decisions it might make a difference. I am sorry this is LAUSD run by the same idiot at City Hall, da mayor.

How much water is being wasted at the schools when every faucet that is used for drinking and or food consumption must be run for at least 30 seconds every morning, because of lead. There are over 700

Generally, I'd be upset at hearing this but then realized that in the winter months, 4:30 is close enough to sunset that the lights are probably set to a timer to coincide with sunset this time of year.

As for why they're on during the weekend, did you ever realize that those schools are sitting ducks for thieves on the weekends and weeknights? I should know because I've prosecuted all sorts of people for breaking into our school campuses late at night. Having well-lit campuses, even on the weekends, is a deterrent to such activity. Don't you like having street lights on, even when no one is walking down the street, for the same reason?
