Teacher calls cops on student after virtual class for having a BB gun in his home

August 24, 2020

  boot_stampingIn the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic we are still dealing with remote learning in many States. Once upon a time the left frowned on homeschooling because the parents had more control over their children’s education, but this new idea of schooling from home instead of homeschooling allows the teachers to gain a small amount of access into what is going on in a child’s home. In other words they can spy on Americans in their homes. 

  Does that sound far-fetched to you? In Baltimore, according to this story, a teacher was holding a Zoom call with students and their parents and after the meeting was over the teacher called the police because the student had a BB gun in his room. Here is more:

A Baltimore County, Md., fifth-grader got a visit from the police after his teacher called to report that she had seen a BB gun on the wall behind the student during a class video call.

The boy’s mother, Courtney Lancaster Sperry, a Navy veteran, is warning other parents about a lack of privacy during virtual classes after her son was targeted by a teacher who saw what she thought was a scary-looking gun hanging on the wall of the boy’s bedroom.

“While my son was on a Zoom call, a ‘concerned parent’ and subsequently two teachers saw his properly stowed and mounted Red Ryder BB gun and one other BB gun in the background,” Sperry wrote on Facebook. “He was not holding them and never intentionally showed them on video. In fact, he was oblivious that they could even be seen in the background.”

After the teacher reported the gun, the principal, Jason Feiler, decided to call the police to report the guns and ask that the home be searched.

  And I thought it was bad when enough when Wisconsin ordered State employees to wear masks at home while on Zoom calls, but that does not compare to having people spying on you at home and calling the police on law abiding citizens who have done nothing wrong.

  But how did the principal justify this? The principle basically said if you are learning from home it is an extension of the classroom and guns are not allowed at school, therefor apparently they felt the family was breaking the law.

The principal and the teacher cited a rule stating that students may not bring guns to school and claimed it extended to virtual classes as well

  This increased access into the homes of Americans is sure to be seen as a welcome side effect of the pandemic for the authoritarians on the left, and we are seeing with all the regulations and orders they have been handing down that it is going to be extremely hard for them to give back any of the power they have usurped. If you think this is going to end after the election in November you are sadly mistaken, this is about more than just one election…

      That is a scary thought but I can see that coming down the road, and probably not as far away as we think!

      Didn’t the state of Tennessee try and sneak in a “wellness check” of K-12 graders? I think the parents got wind of it and threw a fit and they called it off. If I remember what the article said, it would be talking with the children without the parents in the room. Sounds like what Children and Family Services do for checks into domestic cases….but, the point is, they tried to see the reaction they would get. They will just come at it from a different angle next time…you know, get your foot in the door, first.

      A friend in NJ recently shared that the school sent home a letter asking the parents what political party they are affiliated with. Glad they didn’t respond because it is NONE OF THEIR DAMN BUSINESSS.

        What made them think this was okay!? I am glad the parents didn’t respond, I probably would have made it clear in my response exactly what I thought!

        I think that’s exactly what they did. The over reach is beyond belief. And the more they are allowed to take, the more they will…

    Had there been Porn seen on a TV or computer screen in the background no cause for alarm. After all between schools dispensing Morgan wrappers to 12 year olds in class and the SCOTUS ruling porn being piped into every home is free speech…..no problemo! A boy displaying boy stuff in a boy’s bedroom well it’s cause to call out the secret brain police.

      That’s probably right Peter! It is only that it was something of which they did not approve of that led to the police visit.

    About 30 years ago, my daughter went to a private school for a year. During that time, one of the assignments was to draw the inside of our house and document what we had inside. Needless to say, she did not stay at that school. This sounds like it is along the same lines as that was, but with video viewing. My grandsons started back to school yesterday, am hoping they continue and nothing happens where they tell them they have to do remote teaching.

      Wow! Nothing new under the sun I guess except the technology. Let’s hope your nephew will be able to stay in school.

        Grandsons, 7 and 10. Arkansas has never totally shut down and we have not been any worse for the wear, as they say.

        It seems like the states that didn’t overreact got through this already, there is something to be said for the herd immunity.

    This is certainly the year of insanity. Just when you don’t think it could get any worse…events go beyond the imagination. The power hungry are out of control and out of touch…so much so that I agree, it will not be over with the election whether Trump wins or not.

    Perhaps us pro-Patriots can learn a lot from Antifa and BLM as it appears we need to have our own revolution against the power mongers taking away our rights while upholding lawlessness and destroying America and its values. I don’t think the silence of the “silent” majority is helping the situation…as an inch has turned into a space journey. The policed thought and speech were already over the top…then to see the guns confiscated in the Missouri home and now this? I am ready to NOT pay school taxes as they are producing anarchists. We must demand our schools uphold our rights of privacy, free speech and free thought, and return to teaching civics and 360 degree American history. We must become very, very vocal as in boycotting companies who fund BLM and demand they pay for the rebuilding of the burned out cities. Silence is acceptance. We can be silent no more.

      Say what you want about Antifa and BLM but at least they are out there backing up their words with actions. The same cannot be said of the 3%ers who said they would not let our rights be trampled yet did nothing when they were all taken away from us over COVID.

      You have that right! Years ago I worked with a guy whose favorite saying was “cheer up, it will get worse.” I didn’t realize how right he was, these people take it as a challenge when you ask that question!

    How she would ‘scream and howl’ if anyone looked in her closet!
    Back in the day, MN-ians kids use to bring their rifles to school and what ever game they’d shot that morning when out hunting before school! That teacher (who really isn’t a teacher but a DS Indoctrination Worker) would have ‘seen it in a whole different light back then.

      You have that right, and some places even had gun safety classes in school! Everybody has skeletons in their closets and I am sure she would not like people snooping around her house uninvited.

        But, think of how many people will comply…just like with the masks. They do not push against the demand to wear them, they just go with the flow. Seems this might be the same case. You know the “it is what it is” and they must comply. I am tired of being nudged a bit at a time to do something. I know what the outcome will be and I do not like it. I guess I am a resister of sorts.
