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!
