Philadelphia Daily News reports that police in Collingswood, New Jersey were called to William P. Tatem Elementary School on June 16.
Could it have been because some nutjob called in a bomb threat? Was an armed gunman on the loose? Were students selling drugs out of their lockers?
None of the above. Instead a 9-year-old student did the unthinkable. He said the word “brownies” at a third grade party where baked brownies were being served to his class. Oh, the horror! Where’s the fainting couch?
Another student, probably raised by an unbearable liberal, heard the word and cried “racism.” At that point, school administration did what they had to do. They summoned Collingswood Police to the scene of the hateful crime. What other choice did they have? You know, besides roll their eyes and laugh off the silly accusation like adults.
When police arrived, they interrogated the young dessert fan. He told them “they were talking about brownies,” his mother, Stacy dos Santos, said. “Who exactly did he offend?” Answer: the PC Police. Dos Santos continued. “He was intimidated, obviously. There was a police officer with a gun in the holster talking to my son, saying, ‘Tell me what you said.’ He didn’t have anybody on his side.” The incident “traumatized” him, she said.
No surprise there. What child wouldn’t be frightened by teachers and police calling him racist?
This is political correctness run amok, and it’s becoming the norm. Superintendent Scott Oswald reported that police were called to the school district up to five times per day over the last month.
America desperately needs a return to common sense.
