Schools Have Become the School Bullies, Are Now Arresting Children for Making Finger Guns

Westlake Legal Group woman-1006100_960_720-620x349 Schools Have Become the School Bullies, Are Now Arresting Children for Making Finger Guns teen Students School Police school Kansas Guns gun control Front Page Stories child bullying Allow Media Exception Academia Abuse of Power

In a totally reasonable response to a child doing something they shouldn’t, a 13-year-old girl was arrested after making finger guns at four other students at Westridge Middle School in Overland Park, Kansas.

According to the Kansas City Star, the girl had been bullied for months according to her mother, Vanessa McCaron. At one point, they found her in the corner of the cafeteria sobbing by herself.

The Star reported that, upon being asked by a classmate who she would kill in school if she had the chance, the girl pointed at other students with finger guns. She was promptly sent to the office where she was then arrested by the school’s on-duty police officer and charged with felonious threatening:

A school resource officer, employed, by the Overland Park Police Department, would have handled the arrest, Smith said. The department said it could not discuss the case.

But according to Johnson County District Court documents, on Sept. 18, the girl “unlawfully and feloniously communicated a threat to commit violence, with the intent to place another, in fear, or with the intent to cause the evacuation, lock down or disruption in regular, ongoing activities …” or created just the risk of causing such fear.

McCaron pleaded with the officer to not arrest her daughter, but the officer wouldn’t relent according to the Star:

“He said, ‘I will press charges against anyone who I think has broken the law,’” said McCaron, who contacted The Star following Wednesday’s initial story about the incident. “He had such a great opportunity to use his badge to change something in a child, but he chose not to,” she added. “I think this is an insane abuse of power.

The mother has reassured everyone that her child is “anti-gun” and that she would never harm anyone despite the constant bullying she endures.

So many things have gone wrong here.

For one, the girl is apparently bullied by cruel children to the point where she’s sobbing in corners, and yet no one wants to take action until she makes the shape of a gun with her fingers. An abuse of authority takes place in her arrest, all out of fear that the child’s “finger guns” are indicative of a greater oncoming threat. She’s put into handcuffs, doubtlessly further scarring the child emotionally.

Meanwhile, her bullies are going unpunished without a hitch.

What would have happened, if the adults in the room had their senses about them and had simply sent the girl to the principal’s office to talk with her? Upon speaking to her about the incident, they likely would have found that this girl would not have hurt anyone, but did have a reason for doing it.

Upon investigating this reason, a better course of action would have taken place. Perhaps they could be more on the lookout for bullying behavior from students and/or institute harsher punishments for those who do bully their fellow students. They could have helped this girl by giving her emotional support and making her very dark world appear a little brighter.

Instead, the school and local authorities joined in on the bullying.

I get that many schools are jumpy thanks to school shootings in the past, but abandoning every lick of sense and compassion because someone remotely perceives a threat is not going to make the situation better. In fact, this kind of abuse and isolation is how these killers are created.

Joe Walsh and Other Grifters Whine As Several States Cancel Their GOP Primary

As we’ve noted time an again, one of the amazing things about having Donald Trump in office is watching people take an action that would not be controversial at all and raise it to the level of a constitutional crisis. A new one has emerged as several states GOP party organizations are in the process of cancelling their primary election.

Four states are poised to cancel their 2020 GOP presidential primaries and caucuses, a move that would cut off oxygen to Donald Trump’s long-shot primary challengers.

Republican parties in South Carolina, Nevada, Arizona and Kansas are expected to finalize the cancellations in meetings this weekend, according to three GOP officials who are familiar with the plans.

The moves are the latest illustration of Trump’s takeover of the entire Republican Party apparatus. They underscore the extent to which his allies are determined to snuff out any potential nuisance en route to his renomination — or even to deny Republican critics a platform to embarrass him.

Elections are expensive. State parties must underwrite the cost of primary elections. There is no challenger for Trump (no I don’t consider either Weld or Bill Kristol’s sock puppet as challengers). But, the people running a grift off of allegedly opposing Trump’s renomination are incensed:

“Trump and his allies and the Republican National Committee are doing whatever they can do to eliminate primaries in certain states and make it very difficult for primary challengers to get on the ballot in a number of states,” said former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), who recently launched his primary campaign against the president. “It’s wrong, the RNC should be ashamed of itself, and I think it does show that Trump is afraid of a serious primary challenge because he knows his support is very soft.”

“Primary elections are important, competition within parties is good, and we intend to be on the ballot in every single state no matter what the RNC and Trump allies try to do,” Walsh added. “We also intend to loudly call out this undemocratic bull on a regular basis.”

But is this a big deal to anyone who isn’t trying to scab free meals from campaign donations? Apparently, not.

The shutdowns aren’t without precedent. Some of the states forgoing Republican nomination contests have done so during the reelection bids of previous presidents. Arizona, GOP officials there recalled, did not hold a Democratic presidential primary in 2012 [note: 15 states, including New York and Florida, did not hold a Democrat primary in 2012], when Barack Obama was seeking a second term, or in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for reelection. Kansas did not have a Democratic primary in 1996, and Republican officials in the state pointed out that they have long chosen to forgo primaries during a sitting incumbent’s reelection year.

South Carolina GOP Chairman Drew McKissick noted that his state decided not to hold Republican presidential primaries in 1984, when Ronald Reagan was running for reelection, or in 2004, when George W. Bush was seeking a second term. South Carolina, he added, also skipped its 1996 and 2012 Democratic contests.

“As a general rule, when either party has an incumbent president in the White House, there’s no rationale to hold a primary,” McKissick said.

Perhaps the closest comparison to the present day is 1992, when George H.W. Bush was facing a primary challenge from conservative commentator Pat Buchanan. Several states that year [note: by my count 11] effectively ditched their Republican contests, including Iowa, which has long cast the first votes of the presidential nomination battles.

So this isn’t actually an unprecedented take over of the party apparatus by a sitting president who is actually the head of his party? It is something that happens every time a president runs for reelection? A skeptic would wonder why this is even a story.

The reason the GOP exists is not to provide fodder for 24-hour news channels and political blogs. They exist to elect candidates. State parties are under no legal, moral, or ethical obligation to give attention to self-promoters who have little to no interest in advancing party goals and are in it for self-aggrandizement.

If Walsh 2020 catches fire rather than self-immolates, these few states don’t make a difference. If he ends up, as I suspect, a Wikipedia footnote, they don’t make a difference. The only reason Politico or anyone else is even paying any attention to the is OrangeManBad.

A Teenage Girl Defends Her Home With a Gun Showing What Education and Training Can Do

Westlake Legal Group b6e26156-ced4-48fe-bcc4-defe49363ee6-620x413 A Teenage Girl Defends Her Home With a Gun Showing What Education and Training Can Do teenage Politics mass shootings Kansas Guns gun control Girl Front Page Stories Featured Story crime Burglar Allow Media Exception

In the midst of the once more reawakened gun debate after multiple mass shootings rocked the United States, a small story of a teenage girl defending her home with a firearm in Kentucky is currently going under the radar.

According to WYMT-TV, a 14-year-old in Lawrence County was in her home when two burglars attempted to break in. According to the story, the girl took action and chased the burglars off by firing a pistol in their direction as they were attempting to gain entry:

On Sunday, two men in a white sedan pulled up to a home in Blaine. One got out of the car and repeatedly tried to gain entry by trying to kick in the doors.

Inside the home were three teenage girls who responded by calling 911. They were home alone at the time with their father at work and their mother at the store.

At one point the man who was trying to break in circled around to the backyard and was prepared to bust open a window with a shovel.

When this was about to happen, the man and his driver started arguing. During that argument, the youngest of the teenage girls in the home, only 14-years-old, found and loaded a 9mm pistol.

Once she noticed the argument between the two men, she fired the gun in their general direction and they left.

This is a great story to add to all the other great stories like it. An armed innocent person overcoming evil by utilizing a handgun isn’t exactly an uncommon story, despite the fact that these local stories often go untouched by the mainstream media.

The thing to focus on is the small details in this particular story, however.

Here we have a 14-year-old girl who knew what to do when her home was threatened. Firstly, she knew where the gun was and how to access it. Secondly, she knew how to load and operate it.

This girl had firearms training, and this training potentially saved their lives.

One of the problems with our society is that when something bad happens, too many within the populace and the politicians who fear their approval points dropping will knee-jerk into crafting laws and banning things. A ban wouldn’t have saved this girl’s life. Training and education did, though.

We should put more of a focus on teaching respect and proper use of guns instead of working to keep them out of the hands of Americans. The United States is so saturated in firearms that restrictions and bans would just make it harder for good people to have access to things the bad guys already do. Training and education will solve many problems, however.

Even law enforcement seems to agree with this.

“Considering that she is 14-years-old, she did a good job. I encourage everyone that can legally carry a firearm, to carry a firearm to protect themselves and their families just in case the need arises,” Lawrence County Constable Daniel Castle.

Consider this.

If we had more training and education, and more people were comfortable around guns even to the point of carrying them on their person, how many of these mass shootings would have actually been as deadly?

Let’s talk about that almost certainly fake but possibly real “millennial couple can’t make ends meet” budget that’s going around

Westlake Legal Group m Let’s talk about that almost certainly fake but possibly real “millennial couple can’t make ends meet” budget that’s going around The Blog Slavikfill Reddit money MarketWatch langlois Kansas Budget

To cleanse the palate, this started at reddit, migrated over to MarketWatch, and ended up fluttering around on Twitter today, where it distracted me more than once with its inanity.

It can’t be real.

I mean, this description certainly isn’t real: “My wife and I are in our early thirties. We live in Kansas. I’m a CTO of well known startup, and she’s a model. As you can see, each year we have a large deficit. Currently, we add that to our mortgage each year. We’ve been doing this for 2 years. I’d appreciate any advice on how to reign [sic] our situation in.”

A CTO of a well-known start-up who lives in … Kansas? Please.

There are no computers in Kansas.

But assuming for the sake of argument that there are, no one would have a personal household budget like this:

Westlake Legal Group lk Let’s talk about that almost certainly fake but possibly real “millennial couple can’t make ends meet” budget that’s going around The Blog Slavikfill Reddit money MarketWatch langlois Kansas Budget

There may be computers in Kansas but there are surely no homes that require a $10,000 monthly mortgage payment.

Unless this guy and his wife are morbidly obese and/or dining out for every meal, they’re not spending $3,000 a month on food. I think I could feed, like, eight people reasonably well on three large.

Even married to a model, he’s not spending $2,000 on clothes. And he certainly isn’t spending $3,000 on flights — per month — unless this guy’s start-up is in San Francisco and he’s commuting from Kansas.

And … what the hell is “Vanguard contribution” doing there as an expense? Finance is complicated, I know, but let me try to explain: When you park money in investments, you’re not really spending that money. Assuming you can cash out at any time, which is par for the course at Vanguard, you’re saving money by making that contribution rather than consuming it. If you subtract the Vanguard contribution and the $1,000 monthly contribution to his unborn child’s college fund (which feels kind of spare for someone earning $500,000), this person’s actually coming out ahead each month. He can simply scale back the monthly Vanguard buy and all bills are covered.

I think the smoking gun that this is a goof is “party supplies.” The Bitcoin line is silly. The $40 monthly phone bill is very silly. (Two people, one of them a techie by trade, and neither one has a mobile bill?) But $400 a month for “party supplies” that could be going to savings or to junior’s college fund instead?

I mean, the “party supplies” are obviously cocaine, right?

That’s the joke here — I think. The “party supplies” line is supposed to make you stop, laugh, and go, “Oh, I get it. They’re cokeheads!” But I don’t know. It’s subtle. And plenty of redditors seem to have taken this at face value, as the comments suggest. Also, if it’s all a set-up for a laugh about cocaine, why even use a euphemism? Why not just have a “cocaine” line in the budget?

Or is the joke here that there are so many obvious places for this guy to tighten his belt that no sane person would seek advice for it? All he’d have to do is downsize from a 10-bedroom mansion or whatever the hell he’s supposedly living in to a five-bedroom and he’d be golden. Then he and his wife could stop being so stingy on their food spending and really splurge. Caviar at every meal, baby.

Exit question: Totally fake, right?

Kris Kobach Announces Bid for Kansas Senate Seat

Westlake Legal Group 08kobach-facebookJumbo Kris Kobach Announces Bid for Kansas Senate Seat Republican Party Kobach, Kris W Kansas Elections, Senate

Kris W. Kobach, a Republican who rose to national prominence among conservatives through his hard-line positions on immigration and voting rights, announced on Monday that he would seek the Kansas Senate seat held by Pat Roberts, who is retiring.

Standing in front of a campaign banner that read, “Build the Wall,” Mr. Kobach — who most recently has championed an effort to build a border wall with private funding — said he would work in the Senate to lead the charge for President Trump.

“This is a time I believe we all have to heed what J.F.K. said and ask what we can do for our country because our country needs us. And that’s what brings me here today,” he said.

Speaking before a group of about 50 supporters and reporters, Mr. Kobach vowed that, if elected, he would work to ensure that the United States does not provide any health benefits to immigrants in the country unlawfully.

“Once a section is gone, it is very hard for future generations to restore constitutional rights and constitutional liberties to what they once were,” he said.

Mr. Kobach, a former Kansas secretary of state, was the Republican nominee for governor there last year; he lost to Laura Kelly, the Democratic candidate, by 5 percentage points in a state that has long been reliably Republican. Since that stinging loss, members of the party had expressed concern that Kansas voters were seeking a more moderate platform than the one championed by Mr. Kobach.

Mr. Kobach, 53, a lawyer with degrees from Harvard, Yale and Oxford, was the latest in a large field of candidates lining up to replace Mr. Roberts, 83, who is in his fourth term.

Republicans who have already announced candidacies include Dave Lindstrom, a former lineman for the Kansas City Chiefs, and Jake LaTurner, the state treasurer.

Mr. Kobach’s candidacy could rekindle efforts by Republicans to recruit Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a former representative from Kansas, as a candidate for the Senate seat. Mr. Pompeo said in February that he had ruled out a run despite encouragement from party leaders.

Others believed to be considering the race include Roger Marshall, an obstetrician who serves in the House of Representatives; former Gov. Jeff Colyer; and Alan Cobb, president of the state Chamber of Commerce.

Mr. Cobb, a former adviser to President Trump’s 2016 campaign, confirmed on Monday that he is mulling a run. “I think I’d bring a lot of things to the table that the others don’t,” he said.

Democrats who have already entered the race include Barry Grissom, a former United States attorney, and Representative Nancy Boyda.

Mr. Trump had endorsed Mr. Kobach in the governor’s race last year, but some Kansas Republicans said they believed such an endorsement was unlikely in 2020, noting that Mr. Kobach had failed to capitalize on fund-raising and Mr. Trump’s endorsement.

Responding to Mr. Kobach’s announcement, the Senate Leadership Fund, a Super Pac aligned with allies of the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, posted a statement on its website.

“Kansas Republicans deserve a nominee who can win,” the statement said, adding that, “After last year’s gubernatorial result, it is imperative Republicans put our best foot forward in Kansas.”

Before Mr. Kobach’s announcement, a statement of candidacy was filed in his name with the Federal Election Commission, although it initially misspelled his first name as “Chris.”

Kansas Democrats are moving to ranked choice voting

Westlake Legal Group CalVoting Kansas Democrats are moving to ranked choice voting The Blog ranked choice voting Kansas democrats 2020 Democrat primaries

If you’re a Kansas Democrat looking forward to the big primary battle next year you’ll probably notice a couple of minor changes. Okay… I lied. They’re not minor at all. First of all, if the plan recently submitted to the DNC is approved and implemented, you’re not going to have a caucus next year at all as you’ve been doing for decades. You’ll be switching over to a normal primary election.

Okay… I lied again. It’s not a “normal” primary in the sense of how most of the rest of the country runs a primary. You’ll be asked to fill out a ranked choice ballot. In addition to voting for your favorite candidate, you’ll be asked (though not forced) to fill out a second choice, third choice, fourth choice, etc. (Kansas.com)

Last week, the state party submitted its plan to the Democratic National Committee to ditch Kansas’ traditional caucus system in favor of a primary election with ranked-choice voting.

Kansas Democratic Chairwoman Vicki Hyatt said she thinks the new system will make it easier to vote and increase Democratic turnout. “I’m hoping it will generate a lot of energy,” she said.

It won’t be an official state-run election, but it will have more of the trappings of one than the previous caucus process — which has been used since 1992 to divvy up delegates between Democratic candidates.

It appears, in the opinion of yours truly, that the Kansas state Democratic Party is opting to remove one problem and insert another one instead. As regular readers likely already know, I’m not a fan of either of the systems involved in this switch.

Ditching the caucus system is, as I see it, a good thing. I know some of you, particularly in the smaller states, love your caucuses and defend the tradition. But let’s face it… they’re not terribly democratic. It strictly limits the times when people can participate and it forces them to stand up in front of their fellow community members and declare their choice. And that’s true even if one of the other people is your boss who supports a different candidate. So switching to a primary with secret ballots and generous voting hours is a plus.

But this ranked choice ballot detracts from the change because it’s such a sketchy way to handle the counting of the votes. Just look at the history of the recent change to ranked choice voting in Maine and how many courts went back and forth on whether it was even legal.

And even if you accept that ranked choice is constitutional, that doesn’t make it good. The system supposedly ensures a majority instead of a plurality for the winner, but so what? Who says you have to have a majority? And this new system doesn’t really give someone a majority anyway. Each candidate gets however many first choice votes they received but then they get the second choice votes of people whose first selection was the least popular candidate. It’s just a mess.

Then again, as a Defense Secretary once famously said, sometimes Democracy is messy. Kansas can go ahead and make this change and see how the people like it. Just don’t try to force it on the rest of us, please.

A teacher in the Shawnee Mission School District has been fired and may face criminal charges after she was caught on camera kicking a 5-year-old girl.

According to the Kansas City Star, on Feb 21, the little girl from Bluejacket-Flint Elementary School seemed traumatized and “terrified of going back to that school.” District spokesman David Smith told the Star that the girl’s parents contacted the school that day, and officials checked footage from a surveillance recording and confirmed that the teacher, Crystal Smith, had kicked the little girl.

Smith was terminated from her job as of March 25.

According to the family’s attorney, Dan Zmijewski, school officials are also being held in question as the little girl had reportedly gone to other teachers for help but received none. School officials did not even notify the parents of the incident.

In the video, a little girl is seen hiding in a bookshelf as other students leave the room. Smith can be seen yanking the little girl out of the shelf and leaves for a moment. When she came back, she waited until another teacher’s back was turned before kicking the little girl while she was on the floor.

According to the Star, Zmijewski is now filing a civil suit on behalf of the family. Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said his office is reviewing the criminal case.

University of Kansas to Offer Super Woke “Angry White Male Course”

The University of Kansas wants to study angry white men with a new and totally not racist course students can take coming this fall.

According to Fox News, the course will take a look at the increasing anger of white men beginning all the way back into the 1950s in both the United States and Great Britain.

“Employing interdisciplinary perspectives this course examines how both dominant and subordinate masculinities are represented and experienced in cultures undergoing periods of rapid change connected to modernity as well as to rights-based movements of women, people of color, homosexuals and trans individuals,” reads the course description.

In translation, they’re going to study why minorities and women achieving more rights has made white men mad.

This, of course, carries with it the accusation that white men are against the women’s rights and the advancement of minorities, which is demonstrably false. Especially given that white men helped fight – both politically and literally – to give women rights, free slaves, and give minorities voting rights.

In order to take this course, however, you must first attend and pass “Introduction to Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies,” according to Fox News.

This is social justice conditioning at its height, beginning with feminist ideology being injected into the mind, as well as LGBT concepts and theories. While this typically creates an “us vs. them” mentality among student in the form of sex and gender, it would appear they would complete the circle by also crafting a narrative around race, namely naming white males as an angry villain opposed to change and the advancement of people not like them.

In truth, this very course is both racist and sexist, and would only encourage the students in those classes to become sexist and racist themselves, as it puts a horrid shade over people simply due to their skin color and sex.

It wasn’t lost on Republican Rep. Ron Estes that this class is more about division than not, and he took to Twitter to voice his concerns.
