Posted on 11/19/2013 2:00:23 PM PST by Timber Rattler
A father attempts to pick his children up from school by foot which triggers an explosive reaction from the overseeing officer who is enforcing a new car pick-up policy. Jim Howe, the father, is arrested for disorderly conduct for no clear reason and has filed a lawsuit. Im not raising my voice, Im not confrontational, I want my kids, Jim Howe said prior to the arrest. You dont need a reason as a parent to go get your children. They are our children, says Howe.

You're misinformed, sir.
Good ol’ Tampon-Perry.
Good thing he didn't bring along the family dog.
Guy needs to lose his job, he makes cops look bad.
If you like your kids, you can keep your kids, period.
I thought even the Sherriffs deputys in Podunk Bumscrew had to pass some kind of intelligence test to be a LEO.
Would very much like to see a follow-up. Bookmarked.
P.S. - I would have been arrested, too. I don’t back down when it comes to my family.
They could get better officers if they paid minimum wage.
The important thing here is that the cop’s ego went home intact.
If this doesn’t show that tyranny is entrenched, nothing will.
Apathy is a fatal disease to any republic.
I usually give a reason for picking up the kid at school (or in some instances ... coming in late) — but I’ve never been under the impression that I was required to give a reason.
“personal business” is a good polite way of saying, none of your f-——g business..
How many more examples of these Progressive control freaks do we need to see before we:
1) Home school if you have the time and ability
2) Private school if you have the money
3) Non-union charter school as a last resort.
DEFUND the public school system one child at a time.
Any other choice and this insanity will continue.
Funny these same control Nazis would have been more than happy to see you abort your child but once you made the wrong decision to have them the Progressives want total control over their lives.
“I thought even the Sherriffs deputys in Podunk Bumscrew had to pass some kind of intelligence test to be a LEO.”
In point of fact, IQ tests are administered to LEO applicants.
The high scoring ones are not hired, nor are those who score too low.
Coppy Pooh in the instant case has other issues and the parents in that area should keep a closer eye on what their Pooblik Skruewl Collective employees are doing.
Clearly, this nation has completely gone around the bend. There is NO common sense or decency left, is there?
He was just following protocol. He let the dad pass on the colonoscopy though.
I’ve been known to send a note if any of the kids are out, usually along the lines of “Little Johnny Smith was out of school yesterday with their parents. Please contact me, Daddy Smith, if you have any questions”.
Only got the robo-calls.
>>They are our children, says Howe.<<
For now, Mr Howe.
When I watched this video two and a half hours ago, it had about 1,500 views. At this moment, it has 27,676 views.
At our school, we have to call the office (or write an e-mail) to let them know our boy is staying home. They don’t want to know why - but rather that he’s not there per the parent’s permission — namely that he has not been kidnapped or somehow got lost. So, it’s purely a safety measure.
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I don't add you to the list...
I'd like to see a cage match between the father and that Ahole cop.
There’s gotta be a backstory here. The deputy is irritated by the guy as soon as he enters, and refers to prior incidents. The guy freely admits he’s been in county jail before.
Still, the deputy seems to be playing the role of a fascist brownshirt, which is all too common among LEO types nowadays. If the guy just wants to walk his daughter home, Deputy Friendly would just let him do it in a free republic. In a free republic, Deputy Friendly would not even think of interfering with a father and daughter absent extreme circumstances.
So Sheriff Podunk doesn't need to see the video and is blindly backing Deputy Dawg.
The comments below the story in the update link are awesome!

Apparently the Sheriff's office has deleted its Facebook page because it was getting way too much heat last night.
It’s over 80,000 now-—going viral. Expect Fox News to pick it up today sometime.
It’s now 214,000.
this one was more than a little disturbing. the resource officer was just trying to prove that he is the boss
A sheriff went into a store and bought two six packs of beer. The clerk told him the 12 pack was cheaper. the sheriff said he couldn’t drink a 12 pack so bought the two 6 packs.
True story. I went to school with them. The sheriff was a moron in school and is a moron today. He got the office because he ran unopposed.
“Out with parents” wouldn’t work at most schools if you want Little Johnny to make up his work. There has to be a doctor’s appt or some other specific reason or he’ll get a 0 for the day which messes with his GPA.
Works at mine, and it’s a public school to boot. However, I just say that they missed school, parents knowledge and permission, and they always make up the work.
They get X many number of “excused” absences per year.
