Law enforcement rummaged through the home of a student after public school teachers saw a BB gun in the 11-year-old boy’s room during a session of virtual school.
Courtney Lancaster, a Navy veteran who served her country with four years of active duty, is a law-abiding gun enthusiast, and her son is a boy scout in the fifth grade.
“He’s just a very intellectual child, but he’s all boy as well. He loves to be outside and play and ride his bikes and that sort of thing,” Lancaster said to Project Baltimore.
Her son was given a BB gun so he could learn how to shoot as he works to become an eagle scout. She never imagined this would be a problem until police arrived at their house on June 1.
“I had no idea what to think. I’ve never been in any legal trouble whatsoever. I’ve never had any negative encounter with law enforcement,” said Lancaster. “I had no idea. I really didn’t know what to think.”
Lancaster was at home with her son during the time when they arrived.
“So, I answered the door. The police officer was, he was very nice. He explained to me that he was coming to address an issue with my son’s school,” Lancaster told Project Baltimore.
“And then explained to me that he was here to search for weapons, in my home. And I consented to let him in. And then I, unfortunately, stood there and watched police officers enter my 11-year-old son’s bedroom,” she added.
Lancaster was shocked to hear that this search was being conducted because someone in the public school system ratted on her son because the BB gun was displayed during a virtual school session.
“I thought, this is outrageous. This is despicable,” she said. “I had no idea what in the world could this be over? BB guns never even once entered my mind. How many 11-year-old boys have BB guns?”
Lancaster soon discovered that it was a school safety officer at Seneca Elementary who called the police. She feels her rights were violated with these measures of Orwellian overreach.
“I felt violated as a parent, for my child, who’s standing there with police officers in his room, just to see the fear on his face,” she said.
The principal of the school actually had the audacity to compare Lancaster’s son having a BB gun in his room to bringing a gun to a physical classroom.
“It’s absolutely scary to think about,” Courtney said. “Who are on these calls? Who do we have viewing your children and subsequently taking these screenshots that can be sent anywhere or used for any purpose?”
Baltimore County Schools issued a statement to the media: “Our longstanding policy is to not debate individual circumstances through the media. There are multiple ways for families to share concerns with us. In general terms, the safety of students and staff is our chief concern, whether we are meeting in classrooms or via continuity of learning,”
This is another example of why sane people should remove their children from the public school system post haste.
Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds
Weren’t they peaceful protestors?
Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.
Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”
Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”
“We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover,” demanded Governor Walz. “We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.”
The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.
In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
