Armed Agents in Texas School District Arrest Concerned Parents in Their Own Homes
[Breitbart] The Round Rock Independent School District (RRISD) in Texas is using its own armed agents to arrest parents who speak out against the school board’s policies, according to Christopher Rufo in the City Journal.

Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, said:

The battle lines are clear: on one side, the Biden administration, public school bureaucrats, and their armed agents; on the other, parents and families who oppose school closures, mask mandates, critical race theory and corruption. Public school officials have demonstrated a willingness to use police power to silence and intimidate their opponents.

Two fathers, Jeremy Story and Dustin Clark, had spoken out against the school board’s “alleged corruption and school officials’ hostility toward parents.” In August, while “produc[ing] evidence that the board had covered up an alleged assault by the superintendent, Hafedh Azaiez, against a mistress,” Story, a minister, was cut off midsentence as Azaiez ordered armed officers to remove him from the premises, according to Chronicles Magazine.

At issue in the next meeting was the district’s mask mandate. For this, Clark, a retired Army captain, and other parents sought to speak, but instead, the school board “locked the majority of parents out of the room, preventing them from speaking.” According to Rufo, while the parents were asking the school board to open the room for public comment on a major policy item, “school board president Amy Weir directed officers to remove Clark from school property.”

“As he was dragged out by two officers, Clark shouted to the audience: ‘It’s an open meeting! Shame on you. Communist! Communist! Let the public in!'” Rufo explained.

RRISD has it’s own police force, Rufo said, explaining: “with a three-layer chain of command, patrol units, school resource officers, a detective, and a K-9 unit.” And only a few days after Clark’s removal from school board premises, the school district “sent police officers to the homes of both men [Story and Clark], arrested them, and put them in jail on charges of ‘disorderly conduct with intent to disrupt a meeting.'” They were released the next morning.

According to Rufo, many parents believe the school board is trying to send a message: “if you speak out against us, we will turn you into criminals.”

#1  Lawsuits. Lots of lawsuits.
(This is Round Rock, TX, sort of a northern appendage of the Peoples Republic of Travis County [Austin].)
This is what happens when you let school districts (and other entities) have their own little police forces.

#2  These "agents" should be met with gunfire at the door.

Then use the school district members to decorate the lamp posts downtown.

2022 is a make or break year in too many liberal controlled areas.

What do the Socialcrats have planned to disrupt the election?

Will it be a extra ballot printing job, like Fulton Co. GA. or a E-creation of the votes they need, like seen in a dozen plus Liberal controlled Metro areas?

#9  Understand, all armed and badged 'security' agents in Texas must be licensed as peace officers by the state. There's plenty of private security guards, but they're generally forbidden to carry a weapon (insurance issues) and have no arrest powers.
What it sounds like is somebody at the school district went down to the local JP (justice of the peace, bottom level county court) and filed a complaint, then decided that rather than pay for a deputy or constable to serve it, they sent some of their badged flunkies down for that personal touch.
Like I said, there's gonna be lawsuits. And restraining orders.

Ilhan Omar calls for action over Republican Boebert’s ‘Jihad Squad’ comment
[IsraelTimes] Right-wing lawmaker Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert implies Muslim Congresswoman could be a suicide bomber; Democrat demands ‘appropriate action’ from House leadership.
Getting feisty on the House floor.

#1  Fuck'em.
Posted by: Skidmark || 11/28/2021 0:05 Comments || Top||

#2  I asked a Muslim student of mine what "jihad" meant. He claimed it just meant "struggle". So, when Mrs Boebert talked about the Jihad Squad, maybe she just meant that they were a struggle squad.

#3  If it wasn't a good shot, Omar wouldn't be complaining, eh?

#4  And I call for throwing your -ss out of the country for marrying your brother (in-sect), immigration fraud and just being the sh-thead that you are Ill Head.

#5  ... after Boebert offered an apology which I knew these jihadists would not accept from any infidel. Omar married an infidel white guy, because she wasn't about to live married to a Sharia practicing Muslim male which would make her a piece of property instead of a human being. But that was after being elected by Muslims so now she has to find a way back into their good graces for re-election.

#9  All of this is ridiculous. Both involved are dumbasses and lowering the bar. They both waste our time and money, produce nothing worthwhile, and would be fired for lack of production at any other job. They both behave like 8yr olds on the playground and distract constituents with this crap instead of doing something worthwhile. Both should be voted out.

You are one of those bitter old farts who has no answers to anything, but are quick to spew spittle in the direction of everyone. The people finally have Republicans in Congress who are standing up to Pelosi and the other extreme leftists destroying our constitution rights.

Apparently you miss RINOs such as McCain, Boehner, Paul Ryan who were constantly kissing Pelosi and Obama's (currently serving as our third term President) arse!
