No Joker ! Officer probed for saying America 'no more'
WorldNetDaily ^ | SEPTEMBER 03, 2009 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 09/03/2009 8:06:17 PM PDT by RobinMasters

A school security officer in Virginia who told a protester opposing President Obama's health-care plan that America is "no more" remains employed, but is now under investigation because of his statements, according to his school district.

"I have to say, I've seen the video. We do not condone what the officer did say," Paul Regnier, the coordinator of communications and community relations for Fairfax County Public Schools told WND today.

WND reported earlier when the YouTube video showing school Security Officer Wesley Cheeks Jr. objecting to a protest sign carried at a town-hall meeting held by Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va. The sign read "Organizing for National Socialist Health Care – The Final Solution" and it also depicted Obama in the Joker's makeup.

"This used to be America," argued a protester outside a health-care town hall meeting in Reston, Va., after Cheeks threatened him with arrest for holding up a sign with a picture critical of Barack Obama. The officer's response?

"It ain't no more, OK?"

Paul Regnier better watch it.

His staff represent him, and if he doesn't take action against the officer who was abusing his authority, then I suggest we direct our anger toward Regnier's supervisor.

school security officer

Is this the same as a city police officer?

Does this guy actually have arrest powers outside of the schoolyard?

Wesley Cheeks: “It has a picture on it.”

The other guy should be canned too.

Your Officer Wesley Cheeks says this is no longer America. I would
appreciate it if you would tell me what “this” is?

Cheeks is a thug and a disgrace to your department and my country.

What he says is damning, but he also violated the demonstrator’s civil rights when he said the sign must go down because it has a photo on it. That’s why he should be fired.

You know the man holding the sign is Bob Park, the black conservative commentator.

I wonder how many e-mails they’ve received like yours.

Cheeks is guilty on a few counts:

1) When the protestor read Cheeks name as “Officer Wesley Cheeks”, Cheeks agreed and said “yes” that implied that he was an officer, and

2) When Cheeks threatened to arrest him if he didn’t comply with the “officer’s” orders.

3) Using that assumed position of authority to violate the protester’s civil rights.

4) He’s already guilty of being a dumbass.

Yes I do. But (according to the libs and media) since he's a conservative, he's an 'Oreo" and his opinion doesn't count.

Didn't you get the 'talking points'? (sarc/)

I would be willing to believe the school system has a no pictures policy on school property. Don’ty be too quick to fault the officer for enforcing it.

Clintstone used to carry a Bible for show; Obama chose a different book.

And don’t try to tell me that the Bamtard has anything approaching the candlepower required to actually read and understand a book.

So their text books don’t have pictures? So they don’t take school photos? So they don’t paint pictures in art class? So they don’t have the picture of the President in the main hallway?

I would love to see the policy code that can partition one image from another, into two categories, such as between acceptable photos of school officials, students, the President, etc. and having “objectionable” images.
That would be a fun lawsuit.

T-Shirts and jackets, even pants have been venues for kids trying to make a statement with pictures on campus. That has prompted many school districts to restrict pictures on placards and clothing, bookbags, anything that could be construed as trying to send a statement.

From the emphatic response I would guess quite a few.

I did respond to them with an apology for my error. I sent the same email to the School's Department of Communication and Community Outreach and have received no response.

He has the same "arrest powers" outside the schoolyard as he has within it, which are, oddly enough the same "arrest powers" you, me, or any *other* private citizen has by law...

It’s already established that other people had posters with signs. Cheeks acknowledged that he was singling out Parks because he (Cheeks) didn’t like the picture.

If there were, in fact, a “no pictures policy” on school grounds—which is ridiculous on its face—the Fairfax School System would have said that it its response. It didn’t.

Kind of shows how this picture cuts to the truth of the matter -

it wouldn’t bother leftists so much if it wasn’t revealing a truth.

They DO work for the “father of lies”, after all.

On another thread, somebody had found out that “school security officers” are police officers with arrest powers, but working for the school district.
