One of the things we learn from these casual examinations is that America was getting pretty wifty well before any COVID virus came along. What? An unsupervised child shooting hoops? You really have to wonder–was any official involved in this quite sane? I mean, this is really crazy schiff.
I am so glad my childhood was spent in the 50s and 60s rather than today.
There’s an awful lot of stupid stuff we have to stop doing as a nation. Before it does us in.
But Police Chief Frank Donchez stands by his action. “I’ll take heat all day long for arresting a 13-year-old,” he said. “I’m not willing to take the heat for not preventing a school tragedy.” Hard to blame him for that.
It seems some other kid asked the girl to point out “five people you would kill,” so she made a “finger gun” and pointed to five other kids. Once upon a time that would be just idle, ordinary kid talk. But times have changed.
According to the police chief, those children went home and told their parents about the incident, the parents called the police, and the chief talked to them. They were “genuinely fearful of this girl,” the chief said.
My usual reaction to stories like this one is, “Well, here’s another overstaffed and over-budgeted police force with an awful lot of time on its hands.” But not this time.
However–! Our public schools today have become morally toxic: no God, no prayer, “celebrate gender fluidity,” Climate Change “we’re all gonna die in just 12 years unless we get a global government,” assignments to the kiddies to write suicide notes–who is this good for? What kind of spiritual environment is this?
You can station a police officer on every corner of the town; but if the people are lawless at heart, it won’t do any good.
After first responders pronounced the doll dead, police roped off the area as a crime scene and began looking for clues. They stopped when the M.E. told them it was a doll, not a baby.
In fairness, it was quite a realistic-looking doll and police have procedures that they must follow to secure a crime scene for the collection of evidence, some of which can be literally microscopic. So what we have here now is a prank that wasted police and first responder time.
We also have a rather horrible irony. Here all these guys are, pouring time and labor into what they think is a dead baby left in a public park… in New York state, where the governor recently turned on all the lights to celebrate a new abortion law that allows them to kill a baby as he or she is being born.
Why is the one apparent killing a police matter, and the other… just “women’s health”?
So, a snack was served at Collingwood Elementary School, a little boy said something about brownies–because that’s what they were serving–and next thing you know, “school officials”–there goes that doofus alarm again–police, the county prosecutor, and the New Jersey Division of Child Protection get involved.,. because somehow the mere mention of brownies, when brownies are actually present, constitutes “a racial incident” (https://leeduigon.com/2016/06/30/stupid-authorities-crash-down-on-9-year-old-for-calling-brownies-brownies/). Government goofs converge on the incident like sharks around a sinking ship.
Most of you have never had occasion to pass through Camden County, New Jersey. If you’ve ever seen it with your own eyes, you’ll marvel that any of these “authorities” find time to devote to imaginary “racial incidents”–I mean, just look at it!
But wherever Democrats rule–the correct term is “to serve in public office,” but these creeps “rule”–this is what you find: the whole place going to hell in a handbasket while the “authorities” dream up new ways to keep people stirred up about “racism.”
This week’s phony “hate crime” was reported by the mayor of Lamar, South Carolina, back on Feb. 7. It’s getting so that real “hate crimes” are more of a subject for cryptozoologists than criminologists.
In this case, the mayor got all cranked up over some “sticky, yellow substance” found on her and her husband’s cars one morning. The fact that no threatening message accompanied it, the mayor found even scarier than it’d be with a threat. But, she declared, “My husband and I refuse to be intimidated by those who perpetrated this act of vandalism which I classify as an act of hatred.”
That would be… trees.
Although police realized the scary stuff was pollen from the nearby trees the moment they saw it, they still had to “investigate” because a “hate crime” is such a serious event.
The mayor so far refuses to believe it was pollen. Of course, she could have easily wiped some of it off her car and taken it to the nearest high school to put it under a microscope in the biology lab. Then she could see for herself. Pollen grains are those round things with the spiky bits.
But that wouldn’t be anywhere near as dramatic as a “hate crime.” You should see the amount of pollen that falls on our cars. No international news for us.
Shouldn’t it be at least a misdemeanor, to waste police time and resources? You should at least have to prove you didn’t do it on purpose.
Before you know it, collidge will be back in session, with millions of people flocking to the halls of higher education. And the Educators want to be sure the students are prepared to deal with the potholes on the road of life. Like, if somebody says something that upsets you…
Anyway, some high school kid was doing his math assignment, in which square roots were involved, and some other kid looked over his shoulder and observed that the square root symbol “looked like a gun.” Then some other student “said something” that spooked the school officials, who called police, who searched the student’s home, and at the end of the day it was all a lot of nothing.
OK, it was just a couple of days after a major calamity and people–especially school administrators and police–were jumpy. I can’t blame them for that. Only there are hundreds, if not thousands, of examples of police descending on schools because they were called by wacko school officials reacting to trivia or nonsense. Here in New Jersey a couple years ago, we had the State Police swooping down on a school because some little kid called a brownie “a brownie.” Racial incident, you know. Call the cops. School officials are idiots for over-reacting and the cops are fools for not arresting said idiots and charging them with wasting police time.
Meanwhile, liberals keep on trying to stampede America into some easy solution–like, for instance, disarming all law-abiding people–to the massive cultural disaster they have inflicted on our nation. “School shootings,” now a commonplace noun, were unheard-of before the Left really sank its teeth into America during the Sixties.
Kill the culture, and the culture will kill you back.
And chasing down supposed pictures of guns–uh, Officer, have you ever seen a modern video game, or gone to the movies lately?–only makes you look like ninnies.
