People in the Dark Shadows
We’re getting complaints from people that you’ve never heard of. People that are in the dark shadows. Thugs, wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms, with gear and this and that. They come and they knock on our door and they intimidate our kids. They tell them, “Don’t wear your uniform. Don’t wear your insignia.” The teacher came to the house of one of my soldiers and he was a combat vet. He was crying. They were taking him away and they took him to the military police and they’re detaining him. He’s a combat vet. His name is Michael T. Walker, and he was in Baghdad. He was a combat vet. He’s a strong man and he’s a gentle man, and they took him away and they drove him away and he’s like crying.
These are kids. Some of them are just down the street. A lot of our kids have just gotten a complaint, and they’re scared.
They tell the kids they’re not allowed to wear their armbands anymore. They’re not allowed to put pictures of our leader on their bags. They’re not allowed to pray. They’re not allowed to sing the national anthem. They’re not allowed to greet a guest in a language other than English. They’re not allowed to hold a sign that does not say “Please (meet/visit/invite) us.” They’re not allowed to even talk to a member of the opposite sex in a way that’s not part of their faith. And if they do, they are expelled from the school.
Well, sure. They’re not supposed to bully kids, either. But to do that, they needed to set up an iron-fisted hierarchy. But they didn’t get that through their precious belief system. They got it through a stupid constitution and a bunch of asshats with religious notions that should never be protected by the First Amendment.
You never know if you’re going to get arrested when you’re walking your kid to school. You never know if you’re going to get injured.
There are no reports of injuries.
Youth Outreach Leader Candida Sock says, “We just want to give kids the opportunity to come out, learn a little more about the law, be respectful, and know they are in a safe environment.”
Sock says you’ll hear a lot about what we should and should not do.
“We are not babysitters. We are here to make sure they make the right choices. It’s not going to be easy for them to make the right choices. We will be there to help them out, but they need to do it on their own.”
After they receive their certificate, participants will do a minute of high-fiving with the law enforcement officials and then gather around a table with a counselor to have a short discussion about how they did, what they did well, and what they need to work on.
Donations will be accepted at the event to purchase prizes for the participants. Prizes will be awarded to the top three children with the most action photos and the child with the most correct answers.
Veterans of the Big Brother program report that it gives them a new sense of self and control over their lives.
Students tell us that they can see how playing the game in a strategic manner can bring them closer to their fellow students, and that the game encourages them to think critically and confront their fears and insecurities about life. We hear from a participant who commented, “I’m taking my friends and me as a group and one day we’ll have this house and live there.”
Sock says they haven’t seen any more reports of crime in recent weeks. They’re putting extra officers in and out of these schools to speak with the students, the parents, the teachers, and the students’ friends and mentors to make them aware of the heightened security.
Students who aren’t in regular classes at the time will not be arrested and will have to be released back to their parents, KRCR reported.
