Protecting The Kids

Jim Howard works as a school resource officer. Among other responsibilities, it's his job to stand at the front door while kids pour in and out of Fike High School in Wilson, N.C. Jim never expected to be in this job long. But in his first year, a student died tragically, and Jim found himself with an unexpectedly important role to play. Seventeen years later, Jim is still there. This story originally aired on February 24, 2009.
