PC Police Called For Child’s Dessert Brownies
By Shari Dovale
How far is the Politically Correct Liberal left going to go? Children have been traumatized over a dessert at an end of the year 3rd grade party. All because someone named a dessert “Brownie.”
Philly.com reports that a third grader had made a comment about the brownies being served to the class. After another student exclaimed that the remark was “racist,” the school called the Collingswood Police Department, according to the mother of the boy who made the comment.
These are adults that cannot handle children, and cannot think for themselves, yet are being paid to do just that!
The incident, which has sparked outrage among some parents, was one of several in the last month when Collingswood police have been called to look into school incidents that parents think hardly merit criminal investigation.
Not only was the child subjected to an armed officer interrogating him, but these same cops turned around and reported the family to the New Jersey Division of Child Protection. So the family must now deal with that overreaching department, as well.
All over a dessert named “Brownie.”
Superintendent Scott Oswald estimated that on some occasions over the last month, officers may have been called to as many as five incidents per day in the district of 1,875 students.
This has created concern among parents in the 14,000-resident borough, who have phoned their elected officials, met with Mayor James Maley, blasted social-media message boards, and even launched a petition calling on the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office to “stop mandated criminal investigation of elementary school students.”
The increased police involvement follows a May 25 meeting among the Collingswood Police Department, school officials, and representatives from the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, where school officials and police both said they were instructed by the prosecutor’s office to report to police any incidents that could be considered criminal, including what Police Chief Kevin Carey called anything “as minor as a simple name-calling incident that the school would typically handle internally.“
“During that meeting, it was made abundantly clear by an assistant prosecutor that if we did not follow the directive, they would come after us with criminal charges, they’d come after our educational certifications,” Collingswood School Superintendent Scott Oswald said.
Who is so afraid of children that they have ordered a complete waste of time, money and resources to harass students over dessert? Someone needs to be held accountable.
The taxpayers need to do more than complain. They need to act and recall this worthless bureaucrat.
Or just remove the children from these PC government schools, and let them grow up in the normal environment of homeschool.
