    I don't see cause for arrest. The policy is another separate issue to discuss with the board and/or super.

    He should have known he is not going to change school policy right there and then..I'm sure that other people complained about the new policy as well.

    Now the cop hitting the camera is an issue (if the cop did indeed hit the camera .. hard to tell).

    I cant fathom how a parent has to sign a consent form to the government to let the parent have their own children.

    Its as if the government thinks they own the child and the parent has to ask permission of the government to borrow the child for a few hours in the evening.

    Most schools require a form to be completed. One should recognize that with divorced parents, one may not be authorized to pickup w/o permission of the other.

    It looks like they don't maintain such a completed form (detailing who can pick up the kids or if the kids can walk home on their own) for a yearly basis but wants to do it every time the kid is picked up. Well, this policy will result in new board members being elected, new super. etc.

    Isn't Cali like the worst of the worst when it comes to that mindset? I'm not really sure. I was thinking that it was.

    Cumberland County District Policies

    I'm not too sure what I think of this incident.
    The principal must have had what he believed a good reason for this "wait for pickup policy??".

    Cumberland County Board of Education on line

    Supervison of Students

    Release during School hours

    I was not able to find any policy that seemed to fit the conditions in the video. It appears to me, the school is letting out for the day, the Principal Mr. Threet wants him to follow the current policy.
    There are easier ways to change school policy than going to jail, particularly if they are not congruent with State law.

    The problem with America is stupidity.
    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

    I think this hero is in Tennessee but the Kalifornia supreme kourt ruled that parents lease their children from the state at the state's leisure. It was a homeschooling case.

Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    Most people act in a manner that they believe is based upon good reason. Oddly enough, I have had my issues with school districts (mostly 4th amendment issues) ~ and never got arrested. This guy's behavior is very mild IMO .. not worthy of arrest...just arguing and letting people know his displeasure (and in a calm manner). The cop is the villain here...

    Even if you are wrong, one can still complain ... right?

    They wanted him to shut up? Give him his kid...

    All the guberment did is piss off a parent ... and they are worried about "security"? Not a good way to insure it.
