School crime is becoming rampant with violence becoming a daily way of life for too many children in American schools. It’s a complete travesty of justice, and, if your kids attend public schools, you should be concerned. You should demand that the school administration do something about it so that your children can be safer.
And, maybe the thing to do to make your kids safer is to get the police out of the schools because, as you’ll see, sometimes it’s the very people who are there to “protect” our children who are inflicting the pain.
Take the case of Kaylb Wiley Primm who was seven years old at the time of the following incident. Matt Agorist writes,
“After he’d been bullied, Kaylb started crying just as the officer was walking by the classroom. Instead of allowing the teacher to simply calm Kaylb down, this hero public servant yanked the child out into the hallway. He then handcuffed him and dragged him to the principal’s office where he’d sit for 15 minutes in handcuffs waiting on his mother.
“According to the police officer’s account, which sounds like any number of justifications for police violence, the child had been ‘out of control in his classroom and refused to follow my directions.’
“Apparently unable to calm down a 3′ 10″ 45 lb child, this officer violated Kaylb’s right to be free from unreasonable seizures and excessive force, according to the [recently filed American Civil Liberties Union] lawsuit.”
Do you think that is the an isolated case? Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that way. Matt Agorist also mentions a thirteen year old Wisconsin girl who was “accidentally” shot because the child was “combative.” He writes,
“According to police, they were called to the school to investigate allegations of a crime. As they were talking to the young girl, she allegedly became ‘uncooperative and then combative,’ according to the release.
While officers struggled to control the elementary student, one of their firearms somehow discharged while still in the holster and also somehow hit the girl, according to the release.”
Agorist also notes that “pulling the trigger [on one of these police pistols] while in the holster is all but impossible.”
Frankly, the whole situation is getting out of control. Now, don’t get me wrong. I know a number of law enforcement officers who I hold in the highest respect and consider friends. However, if you have to handcuff a seven year old or if you “accidentally” shoot a thirteen year old because you can’t get the situation under control, you are either seriously lacking in training or you aren’t doing your job because you think being a police officer is about enjoying power.
Either way, our children do not need to be the test subjects for these kinds of officers to practice on. If you haven’t already, you may want to consider homeschooling your children. Homeschooling will have the added benefit of making bugging out with the family more practical in a disaster situation.
What do you think about these police incidents in our schools: Are the police really there to protect our children or to lord power over them? Sound off below.
