You can’t make this stuff up.
The Record reports:
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.”
The school principal, police and child welfare officials, however, all stand by their actions. They said they had to investigate to determine whether there was a gun in Sansone’s house that children had access to.
“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.
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.”
One more reason to homeschool your kids.
Just as in Nazi Germany, children are used as informants against their own parents. If you have young children today in our school systems, my sympathies to you. Your child is a dangerous entity that could hand you over to the State without warning, even if the child has no intentions of getting you into trouble. The State is constantly on the lookout for ways to bloat its crony private prison population with healthy slaves. Young fathers make for excellent slave labor. Locking up dads has the ancillary benefit of creating future criminals out of the kids.
The story notes:
After he was released, Sansone was asked to sign a paper authorizing a search of his home. He signed, even though he didn’t have to, he said.
What if he had a small personal stash of pot? That kid would be gone, he would be behind bars, and the hammer of the State justice system would crush him into dust.
The picture the kid drew was an excuse to get into his house. The police and prosecutors know that there is a good chance that if they can get into a house, they will find something naughty in there that they can prosecute. It might be drugs, guns, code violations, or any other number of things the State has deemed to be illegal. This was a witch hunt, with the goal of putting yet another harmless person into a slave labor camp.
