KITCHENER A Kitchener father is upset that police arrested him at his childrens school Wednesday, hauled him down to the station and strip-searched him, all because his four-year-old daughter drew a picture of a gun at school.
Im picking up my kids and then, next thing you know, Im locked up, Jessie Sansone, 26, said Thursday.
I was in shock. This is completely insane. My daughter drew a gun on a piece of paper at school.
The school principal, police and child welfare officials, however, all stand by their actions. They said they had to investigate to determine whether there was a gun in Sansones house that children had access to.
From a public safety point of view, any child drawing a picture of guns and saying theres guns in a home would warrant some further conversation with the parents and child, said Alison Scott, executive director of Family and Childrens Services.

I shudder at my fate today.
sounds like a nice lawsuit for the dad.
A complete and total over reach by liberal scum. All involved should be terminated from their positions.
Here’s a later excerpt - it’s a long story:
He was forced to remove his clothes for a full strip search.
Several hours later, a detective apologized and said he was being released with no charges, Sansone said.
The detective told him that his four-year-old daughter had drawn a picture of a man holding a gun. When a teacher asked her who the man was, the girl replied, Thats my daddys. He uses it to shoot bad guys and monsters.
To be honest with you, I broke down, Sansone said. My character got put down so much. I was actually really hurt, like it could happen that easy.
How do you recognize a criminal from a father?
He said he thought he had good relations with the principal who offered him a job last year counselling students at the school.
Were educated, he said. Im a certified PSW (personal support worker) and a life issues counsellor. I go into schools to try to make a difference.
As a Canadian, I’m ashamed.
These people are absolute idiots, morons and imbeciles! And they are in charge of our children!.........and that includes THE DUMB ASS POLICE!................
There is an app that you can design guns with.
Did the police search his property for dead monsters?
This really does deserve a lawsuit. I don't know whether it would fly under Canadian law, but I think it would take a really crooked judge to throw it out in the U.S.
Not that we don't have plenty of crooked judges these days.
Hamilton, Ontariario, Canuckistan.
I hate living in a fascist police state. This Kenyan “hope and change” crap is for the birds. Barry can take his daddy’s “dreams” and shove them up his ...
“As a Canadian, Im ashamed”
Obviously Canada ..wherever “Kitchener” is ...Ontario???
Wow, my hometown.
About an hour west of Toronto.
I can remember my teachers being fascinated when I talked guns and told about my dad’s collection. Even brought a couple old WW2 rifles and a Luger to school as props for a history report and they were passed around the class so all could handle them. And guess what, no one was offended or even mildly panicked.
Wow would I be in trouble these days!
Simultaneously dive bombers with swastikas on the side were staffing the bus.
My Mother saved the drawing and showed it to me a few years ago.
I can only imagine the uproar that would cause today.
Definitely not going to be having any kids in this psycho fascist country.
If you voted for these PC socialists and the socialists in your government then you are on the receiving end of your voting decisions. Your ill-conceived votes have consequences.
Canada went this way quite a while back. Here, we are pretty close to this level of socialist thugs intruding into our lives and the lives of our children. We once fought a revolution to rid ourselves of tyranny far less onerous than what we have today. King or would-be dictator, what is the difference?
I am sick of the political blather and trivialities from the so-called conservative candidates. I want to know one thing; which one of you will restore the actual Constitution and outlaw/sweep away all of the crap the socialists have wrapped around our necks? The almost certain alternative is going to be less than pleasant for both the socialists and the GOP elite.
Piss on the GOP elite, piss on bipartisanship, piss on all democrats. The future of our constitutional republic is at stake.
There's more freedom there.
When I was in high school, I always had a rifle in my car. I lived in the country and didn’t want to pass up a shot at a coyote on the way to school and back.
“Several hours later, a detective apologized and said he was being released with no charges”, Sansone said.
That’s about the time new charges of assault on a LEO would be warranted, if it were me!
No matter how you arrive at big government, the results are the same, evil.
Where is Kitchener?
“Where is Kitchener?”
Relieving Gordon at Khartoum, old boy!
Yep. An sharks .... lots of sharks. I guess our dads should have been drawn and quartered.
Looks like it’s time to get rid of all your kids!
I remember lining up .22lr ammo in the form of a ‘22’ number on my desktop in third grade ‘show and tell’. No problems either but I’d get the chair for that today I guess!!!
Relieving Gordon at Khartoum, old boy!
Actually at last sighting he was treading water in the North Sea.
People get the government they deserve.
Criminals are the ones without badges.
Any and all excuses to wage war on America and fathers
Too late. Gordon's head is on a spike.
I hated school here starting in the 5th grade I drew pictures of guns, the school burning down, blowing up, I HATE, HATE, hated it here!
Even the teacher noticed my hate for schools here.
I also shudder to think what would happen today if I did it.
Strange. I didn’t hate schools in the West when I went there, only in the Ozarks.
We never owned any guns at that time.
Her father owning a gun is scandalous ...but if the child wanted an abortion and asked the school for assistance. That would be A-OK.
f$%^. That’s so messed up.
In 1995, high school kids in my area were still bringing guns to school in their trucks. Now they are not allowed.
We’re moving towards Liberal Fascism at break-neck speed. Every 10 years you see noticeable changes for your Liberty and freedom.
Don’t live in Canada...
“Piss on the GOP elite, piss on bipartisanship, piss on all democrats. The future of our constitutional republic is at stake.”
A great comment sir. Thank you.
“Forget it, Jake. It’s Chinatown.”
It’s CANADA. No RKBA.
They will probably have him in a mandatory reeducation camp....
Kitchener is a two hour drive west of Toronto.
