That is, she drew a picture of a gun with a crayon. Unfortunately, the little dear did it at school, and we know what that means, right? Idiot school administrators with a rule book and zero common sense spring into action (from Sun News in Canada). Look at the video, which provides more evidence of idiocy by the police, who came to the school and arrested the father (without charge), then took him to the station and strip-searched him. They also took the family’s other children into child-protective services. Incredible.
Police arrested a Kitchener, Ont., father outside his daughter’s school because the four-year-old drew a picture of him holding a gun.
Jessie Sansone told the Record newspaper that he was in shock when he was arrested Wednesday and taken to a police station for questioning over the drawing. He was also strip-searched. “This is completely insane. My daughter drew a gun on a piece of paper at school,” he said.
Officials told the newspaper the move was necessary to ensure there were no guns accessible by children in the family’s home. They also said comments by Sansone’s daughter, Neaveh, that the man holding the gun in the picture was her dad and “he uses it to shoot bad guys and monsters,” was concerning. Police also searched Sansone’s home while he was in custody. His wife and three children were taken to the police station, and the children were interviewed by Family and Children’s Services.
Sansone’s wife, Stephanie Squires, told the newspaper no one told them why her husband had been arrested. “He had absolutely no idea what this was even about. I just kept telling them, ‘You’re making a mistake.'”
Several hours later, Sansone was released without charges.
You just can’t make this stuff up.
