Courtroom suicide should be a wake-up call that security is needed at rural courthouse, says sheriff

What are they going to do, oral cavity searches for everyone because of a couple of suicides? This does not make sense.

Overkill [no pun intended]

I agree re: medications. Guns and other weapons are usually used to kill someone else. I see zero reason for public building security to concern itself with suicide via means unlikely to injure others. What are they thinking? Is the medications part of the proposal just a typical red herring, which will easily be deleted while what really counts is adopted?
