Isaiah Elliott, a student at Grand Mountain, a K-8 public school located south of Colorado Springs, Colorado, was suspended for having a toy gun during a virtual class.
On August 27, the seventh grade student was participating in an online art class when a teacher caught him flashing a toy gun across his computer screen.
The teacher was caught off guard and ended up informing the school principal about this incident. Elliott received a five-day suspension from the principal. The principal also instructed the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office to carry out a welfare check on the child without even informing his parents beforehand.
According to a report by KDVR, the “toy in question is a neon green and black handgun with an orange tip with the words ‘Zombie Hunter’ printed on the side.”
“It was really frightening and upsetting for me as a parent, especially as the parent of an African-American young man, especially given what’s going on in our country right now,” remarked Isaiah’s father, Curtis Elliott, during an exclusive interview with FOX31.
Curtis’ wife Dani Elliott also expressed her anger towards the school’s decision to give her a heads up, only after law enforcement made their way to the family’s home.
“For them to go as extreme as suspending him for five days, sending the police out, having the police threaten to press charges against him because they want to compare the virtual environment to the actual in-school environment is insane,” commented Dani Elliott.
The Problem Solvers were able to obtain the sheriff’s report and it confirmed the teacher “said she assumed it was a toy gun but was not certain.”
“If her main concern was his safety, a two-minute phone call to me or my husband could easily have alleviated this whole situation to where I told them it was fake,” remarked Dani Elliott.
Both parents were aware that the school was recording their child’s virtual class. However, they claimed that the district refused to hand over the video to them when they asked to receive a copy of it.
“I definitely feel they crossed the line,” declared Dani Elliott. “They were extreme with their punishment, especially sending the police out and traumatizing my son and my family.”
The district has received considerable flak on Facebook for its heavy-handed response to this matter.
The district defended itself on its Facebook page: “The platforms we use for distance learning have the feature to record classes for educational purposes. During our first week of school, we were still becoming familiar with the platform. It is not our current practice to record classes at this time. Parents will be notified if that changes. We will continue to support all families in our school to make sure they feel safe, respected, and educated.”
The parents of Isaiah Elliott said that they plan on transferring him to a charter or private school despite their son being able to return to Grand Mountain School on September 4.
Isaiah Elliott’s parents are behaving the way Americans traditionally have on matters concerning education. Instead of turning to public schooling, which is filled with loads of indoctrination, this family is playing it safe by looking at other educational alternatives.
In an overly politicized America, there is simply no justification for sending children to veritable indoctrination centers. If the Right is serious about defeating the Left, they would be defunding public schools and putting their kinds in private alternatives that uphold traditional values.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
