Dad arrested when daughter drew a gun at school…ON PAPER!
Man shocked by arrest after daughter draws picture of gun at school

Vote with your feet northern neighbors.  Maybe not.  It’s getting insane down here too. My comments and thoughts on this are included.

KITCHENER — A Kitchener father is upset that police arrested him at his children’s’ school Wednesday, hauled him down to the station and strip-searched him, all because his four-year-old daughter drew a picture of a gun at school.

“I’m picking up my kids and then, next thing you know, I’m locked up,” Jessie Sansone, 26, said Thursday.

“I was in shock. This is completely insane. My daughter drew a gun on a piece of paper at school.”

If the State can disarm, they can rule supremely. The government in Canada has created such a fear of guns that merely drawing one in school is worthy of arresting the pre-crime perpetrator. Dad, a counselor in the community, should not have had those pre-crime thoughts of using a toy gun to create mayhem in his home and society.  The actions of the Police State of Canada are warranted here. It’s for the safety of the public, whoever “public” happens to be.

“From a public safety point of view, any child drawing a picture of guns and saying there’s guns in a home would warrant some further conversation with the parents and child,” said Alison Scott, executive director of Family and Children’s Services.

Since the State owns our children, they have a vested interest in protecting their future sheeple.

Waterloo Regional Police Insp. Kevin Thaler said there was a complaint from Forest Hills public school that “a firearm was in a residence and children had access to it. We had every concern, based on this information, that children were in danger.”

The State is the only one who knows what’s best and how to protect the safety of its children.  In its view, this pre-crime parent has no business raising his children.  His daughter drew a gun!  In my school, I see kids draw pictures of guns all the time just to pass time in boring, sleep inducing classes.  At least it keeps them interested in something.  I guess I should report these occurrences to the pre-crime Nazi unit.

Last week I had a meeting with a single mother of one of my students at school.  She showed up with her other two children in tow.  A one year old daughter and three-year old son, carrying a plastic toy gun.  It shoots foam darts.  Could it be that this mom needs to be arrested and shamed like the dad in Canada?  I lead her to my room for the meeting and gave her two toddlers some paper and crayons to keep them occupied.  Her children were very well-behaved in the meeting.  I walked her to the front door of the school and thanked her for coming.  As I turned, she called back to me to say that her son had left his gun in my classroom.  I was relieved that no Statists were in ear-shot.  I walked her back to my room so her son could retrieve his lost property.  He strolled back out of the school with gun in hand, proud and relieved.

Hope Big Brother doesn’t review the eye-in-the-sky surveillance tape and bring charges against this single mom.  Or me for not reporting a gun on campus! Thankfully, our resource officer is a friend of freedom.

Coercion and control!  Another stupid government school’s Zero Tolerance policy.  A cancer surviving senior at a Michigan high school can’t grow his hair long to donate to Locks of Love. Watch the short video here.

I’ve seen many kids sent home because their hair was cut in mow-hawk fashion.  Individual expression in hair style does NOT fit the one-size-fits-all motto of government schooling.  NO individuals allowed!

You’re free to grow your hair long…if the collective says so.  Welcome to my insane world of government schooling!

Sorry kid. Maybe next time.

This falls in the Institutionalized Insanity Department: Boy disciplined after waving gun-shaped pizza ..

You-Can’t-Make-This-Up category…

For the rest of the semester, a Rutherford County elementary student has to eat lunch at the “silent table” for allegedly waving around a slice of pizza some say resembled a gun.

Nicholas Taylor attends David Youree Elementary School in Smyrna, about 30 miles southeast of Nashville.School leaders say the 10-year-old threatened other students at his lunch table with a piece of pizza with bites out of it so it looked like a gun and when asked about it was initially not truthful.

Nicholas’ mother LeAnn calls her son’s punishment “absolutely ridiculous” saying he was just playing around and never said anything derogatory or anything about shooting anyone.

“The kid across the table from him said it looked like a gun so he picked it up and started shooting it in the air,” she told Nashville’s News 2 Investigates.

Taylor said she learned of the incident when the school sent her a note saying her son was threatening other students.

James Evans, spokesperson for the Rutherford County School District, said the boy isn’t being punished because he had a piece of pizza shaped like a gun.

He’s being punished because “some students reported he was making some threatening hand gestures, that he was shooting other kids at the table and they reported it to a teacher,” according to Evans.

He continued, “The student didn’t tell him the truth about it so he got silent lunch for six days.”

Evans called the punishment minor but said the message is clear.

“I realize some might say we are going overboard but the principal is just trying to use an abundance of caution and send the message that we don’t play about guns and it’s not something we joke around about,” he said.

To that, Taylor said her son knows he shouldn’t play with guns.

“We don’t have a gun in the house,” she said.  “He plays with light sabers. He’s a big Star Wars fan.”

In addition to lunch at the silent table, Nicholas has spent time with the school resource officer learning about gun safety.

Taylor said the school system has made it clear that if her son eats his pizza into the shape of a gun again and there is a similar occurrence, he will be suspended.

Nicholas, next time, chew your pizza (counted as a vegetable for school lunches) into the shape of a light saber and appease the gun nazis.  May the force be with you my son as the school cop explains why he is allowed to pack heat in a No-Weapons Zone, also known as, Disarmed Victim Zone.  Your education in State sponsored force and hypocrisy will be painful.  But, it’s for your own good.
Now, be quiet and eat your school lunch in silence!
