Zero tolerance. Follow the rules, citizen.
 
2014-03-23 07:52:28 AM
Pretty stupid.  The school should apologize to the parent and put it behind them.

skwerl: Zero tolerance. Follow the rules, citizen.


Yup.  And when a school administrator makes a minor error, there is zero tolerance against them by parents, too.

Funny how that works.

So, she didn't have a hall pass?

/SEND HER TO JAIL!

That's just it.  The school administrator was following procedure correctly.  Do the need to apologize?  No.  Should they?  Yes, because there is no way they can win the PR shiatstorm this will generate.
 
2014-03-23 07:55:54 AM
At least the cops didn't shoot the crap out of her. They're getting soft.
 
2014-03-23 07:56:17 AM
She was taken to the police station on trespassing charges but Williams said she is a known parent. In fact, she met with the principal on Wednesday about a separate issue.

Yea, that's a good reason you dumb twunt.

So, it's hard to judge since it's the typical "wah wah" crybaby story from a parent who did something stupid and then ran to whine about the consequences in the local media, but it sure sounds like this basically boils down to a simple matter of schools having increased security and this biatch feels like she's too special to have it apply to her like it would the rest of us.

Fark off you self-important jackass. I hope you get some jail time.

If some random hysterical woman went barging into my son's school I'd want her arrested. My question is why the asst. principal wasn't already on top of the situation and meeting her at the classroom with the sign in form. This sounds like a result of poor communication between the teacher and the front office.

They will try. They will throw the "follow the rules" and "everyone signed off" and even trot out a few supporters with special needs kids.

Unless it is sustained, they will fight through the shiatstorm.

There's only her side of the story, as usual. How much do you want to bet she intentionally ignored or was hostile to the front office when they tried to get her to follow the proper procedures and didn't bother to mention that part to the media?

You've never had an emergency call about your child have you?

Every time I read a story like this I am glad my kids re grown and I don't have to deal with this fear mongering bullsh*t.
 
2014-03-23 08:00:50 AM
So why didn't principal dipshiat call off the police if the person was known, or at least tell the police that there was a mistake?

If they called her and were expecting her to come in, and not said anything when the police arrested her, well, they're idiots.

Of course, an uncomfortable problem here is that the local area thinks that these policies are necessary to protect their children. Either the people on the board are overly paranoid, or this school has problems already. I'd say those two explanations are the most likely, and both have their own set of unfortunate implications...

Good, I don't want random possibly armed adults floating around the halls of my kids' school.  I don't care if they are a parent of a child there, follow the rules and identify yourself.  I especially don't care if you think your snowflake requires even more urgent attention then smart kids, back in the day darwinism would have ensured your blood line ended with you so stop biatching else we'll have to revisit that.

It sounds like a power play by somebody in the office. The mother mentioned being in the school office prior to this; she may have pissed them off then.

It couldn't surprise me in the least. I firmly believe that this Snowflake Generation doesn't actually exist, but what we really have is a bunch of parents in the Self-Important-Jackass Cohort.

Well, since most schools only have one way in during the day now, and that way has a staff member manning it, I suspect you may be right. I'm sure different school districts have different policies, but there is no way into my kid's school without going right past someone who can sign you in. If you just blow past that person, you are in for trouble.

That also is a possibility. Another one is someone in the office hates the kid and is trying to get them to leave by getting the parent arrested and having CPS take away the child or just force the family to move to get away from that school.

Hmm, really? I know the elementary school here has a few entry points, but I think all but one are locked during the day. Not sure of that, since I didn't attend elementary here. I know the junior/senior high (combined school) has... hmm, off the top of my head, assuming they haven't renovated anything else major since I last visited, three major points of entry. There are two offices: The junior high office, and the senior high office. The junior high office is generally where people sign in, since the door there is facing the parking area, and also is where the nurse's office for the entire school is. The senior high office is more for administrative purposes and mail for the teachers. I'm getting off track, so I should say that during regular hours, my junior/senior high school should have the front entrance next to the senior high office unlocked, and the door next to the junior high office in the back unlocked. You're technically supposed to come in the back door, but my guess is they have another sign in sheet in the senior high office as well. It's a laid back area, and kids can leave the school for lunch as long as they get back in time for classes, so there's that.

I have to agree with Pichu.

The local elementary has been basically terrorizing my youngest for six months. We had no proof. They sent her home on 2/19 with red fingermarks in her armpits, petechia, and a bruise on her back. CPS did NOTHING. The police did NOTHING. She's 8. She weighs 59lbs. Multiple issues. The worst she usually does is cry that the cafeteria ran out of pancakes, or not stop talking about MLP.

What did the school do? They called an IEP meeting to change our kid's placement and tried to blame it on her rubbing her back against a chair or some nonsense. (No, no clue how that would affect her armpits).  Their response to our kid getting hurt was to retaliate.

/we pulled her out after she came home with the injuries. Homeschooling for now, and trying to sell our house and move. There isn't another choice. An attorney for a due process case here is $$$$$$. We tried to work within the system and thought they were just clueless in the beginning. No. It's designed.

While in general you might be right, I believe that in this school district it's generally well known that none of the families have the resources to move, so it's unlikely that this is a desired outcome, even if it is a "revenge arrest".
 
2014-03-23 08:36:34 AM
I won't say this is always the case, but I will say 'most of the time'....these things aren't as unreasonable as they seem.  It reminds me of the 'Man arrested for talking too long at a public meeting' headlines that were floating around....but when you actually see the full story - regardless of what side you agree with - have to admit that there was a lot more to the story.

I'd bet money that this lady is a frequent pain-in-the-ass to the staff.  Her special needs snowflake was emotional.  Not dying, not bleeding, not in need of medical attention....her kid was having a panic attack.  And, I'm willing to bet money that it isn't first time.  She even says she 'is a known parent'.  I'd imagine she has a long history of expecting special treatment.  She was there just two days before speaking to the principal about an 'unrelated issue'.

I'd also suspect that she'd be the first to raise hell if she found out someone else was allowed past the school's 'security procedures' designed to protect her special needs child.

THIS. if she had assaulted a teacher or student, the school officials would have been raked over the coals for letting her in without signing in.

FTFAs comment section, another parent from that school posts:

"First of all that is an out right lie. This mother son is ED Emotional Disturbed and is not Autistic. The teacher did not call frantically. This mother has been an issue every since her children have attended Walnut Grove. She has threaten to stab a mother and has had conflicts with another family which led to the police and the family having a meeting Wednesday. I feel the news needs to investigate before putting anything on the air. Next time check the background of the parent before believing anything they say. She knows school and district policy. All she had to do was stop by the office and sign in. Also her son went outside and played while the police escorted her out of the building. Also the students are on special permission to attend there."

So maybe there's a bit more to the story than simply "Gestapo school agents thwart freedom by arresting fledgling eagle's patriot-hero parent. - Maybe that's why the cops took the extraordinary step of arresting her. That teacher she "met" in the hall apparently called the cops after the mother blew past her and refused to sign in.

abhorrent1: These people are teaching your children. You should be concerned about that.


I think you might be shocked at how many people are OK with the thought of their kids being raised to be good little automatons.

As long as THEY don't have to raise them.

I routinely confronted my son's teachers and school administrators when he was still in school.  I was always respectful and they never gave in.  My son did learn one thing though.  Always question the rules and think for yourself.  You may have to comply in the short-term, but never accept it without question.

Or it still could be, with a CPS taking the child away (and out of the school) for a parent being arrested in a school. Remove the possibility of forcing the family to move away, and what's left is, well, worse...

How about NOT buzzing the person in and giving them access to the building and everyone inside unless you know who the fark they are??

How the fark does signing a book keep kids safe? If they buzzed her in I hope to fark they knew who she was or the fault is on them.

They called her. They buzzed her in. And, they still had the stones to have her arrested?? Seriously?
