Dad Arrested, Strip-Searched After Daughter Draws a Picture of a Gun in School
Toronto Sun ^ | 2/25/2012 | Kris Sims

Posted on 02/26/2012 7:42:40 AM PST by Ernie Kaputnik

Jessie Sansone and his family are reeling after he was arrested and strip searched by police after his four-year-old daughter drew a picture of a man with a gun in her Kitchener, Ont., kindergarten class.

The 26-year-old father of four said Saturday the sketch was supposed to be him, getting the bad guys and monsters.

The school must have thought differently, as after Nevaeh drew it Wednesday, the school contacted Family and Children's Services and they called police.

Waterloo Police met Sansone at the school when he tried to pick up his kids he was told he was charged with possession of a firearm. He was then handcuffed and put him in one of the several squad cars waiting outside, he said.

This was a message to the rest of society...it is intended to terrorize, and to make the children understand that parents are potentially dangerous people and should be reported, a la Nazi Germany.

Is it working, people?

It's called "conditioning" and the kids and parents alike are just eating it up.

FYI...According to the article, he was arrested, strip searched and held in jail for 4 hours and his pregnant wife was also brought in for questioning while police searched their home for firearms. A thorough search found a toy gun that shoots foam darts.

Meh. How Orwellian.

We (my classmates and I) used to draw pictures of battle scenes when I was in 2nd grade, which included fighter planes, dive bombers, tanks, soldiers, explosions, and dead bodies. Nobody ever raised an eye-brow over it then, but I suspect that if a kid does something like that today, he’ll be put in foster care and undgo years of psychological counseling, the parents arrested for child abuse, and the authorities will tear their house down while they search for tanks, airplanes and bombs hidden in the backyard.

Complete idiocy.

Does Canada have two laws, one for Muslims and one for the rest of us like England does? The EDL have been the most vocal about it, but British people in general have been expressing their feelings that the government of the UK seems to be applying two very different standards in law, both in terms of verdict, excuses for a not-guilty and sentencing on conviction. Most Brits are careful of how they express it of course because at this stage any show of belief in Britishness in Britain is often viewed as racism somehow. But is Canada different or different only in degree and stage? Recently a four year old Kitchener, Ontario girl drew a picture of a gun in her public kindergarten school class. Police were called as were Family and Social Services. A warrantless search of her father’s property and premises was done and he was arrested for possession of a firearm although none had been found before that and frankly, none has been found since. Now I am no lawyer but this seems like a peculiar reading of Habious Corpus. (sp) At the end of Ezra Levant’s rather excellent and direct TV remarks on this issue he ended with the question of whether or not the same thing would have happened had the fathers name been Mohamed or something similar. Well as it turns out we don’t need to wait for an answer. Below, is a drawing done at a Muslim school by a young student that not only was a gun, but was incitement to genocide, to the destruction of an entire nation for Islam and not only were the police not called, but despite the national attention this received when a reporter saw it, no search of the family home was done, no arrest or strip search of the parents. Ottawa Muslim school drawing of gun So there you have it. Canada also has two sets of laws. One for the docile, law abiding Canadian people where if your single digit aged daughter draws a gun-toon with crayons, you lose all your rights before the law, and I mean real rights, not fake ones like ‘not being offended’ but ones that protect you from a fascist state that can arrest you, search you and your property and humiliate you in any way they see fit without warrant at any time. Remember, this drawing of the machine gun as a cover for an essay on how Muslims must destroy Jews and Israel and take over the world was international news for some time as you can see from this link from England’s the Telegraph. Here are a few points about the Muslim school essay: The essay was an 8 page, fictional story accompanied by a cover illustration written by a Muslim boy as part of a creative writing essay competition at the school. 1. (former) Principal Aisha Sherazi expressed “shock” despite the fact that the essay was displayed in a glass case at the school. 2. From what I can tell, there were no reports of police being called by any school staff member(s) in response to the content of the essay even though it clearly glorified violence/martyrdom/Jew hatred. 3. An investigation was launched by Ministry of Education officials.The two teachers that praised the boy’s work were suspended by the school. I don’t believe they were ever reprimanded by ministry officials. 4. The boys father was not apprehended at the school by police officers, nor was his home searched. He was not detained, nor was he strip searched. 5. The boy’s name, age or grade were not disclosed to the public citing “privacy” concerns. 6. The boy’s cover illustration for his fictional story entitled ” The Long Road” clearly showed the drawing of a machine gun ( accompanied by other vulgar, hate-filled images). 7. The story made international headlines in March of 2005. ** Abraar Islamic school was est. in 2000. Students from kindie- age 13 attend. It does not receive state funding. All classes are subject to the Ontario curriculum except Arabic classes (in which the story was written). As of 2005, the school has not been inspected by government officials. (that may have changed to date, but I don’t know for sure). Lastly, here is a webpage advertising this years ‘Israeli apartheid week‘ poster contest. Think anyone will be arrested, strip searched or raided at home based on the drawings we will see here? Eeyore for Vlad with lots of help from Grace. http://vladtepesblog.com/?p=44885

Charged with possession of a firearm?

Remember...Canada is still the dominion of the thugs called the English Royal family, and they brook no opposition to their gangster state.

Happily my ancestors took them on and kicked them out of their states.

Their sympathizers - "Torys" - ran to Canada, where they have remained in servitude ever since.

Yes, those things are now praiseworthy. Yet many conservatives send their children to public school. They won't remove their children from that kind of atmosphere, not for the children's sake nor for the nation's. They consider themselves patriots, who won't even do that little for their country, though they crow "Molon Labe" every chance they get. Meanwhile the enemy comes and gets their children every weekday morning.

Thank goodness she didn’t draw a picture of her dad with a Lightsaber - they would have detained him for being a Sith.

Or, if she drew him as a Transformer (into a car) they would have arrested him for not paying his personal autobot excise tax....

“Yea. When I was in high school kids had rifles in their pickups and cars.”

Believe it or not, I can top that.

A kid in our neighborhood went to a ‘military academy’ located just north of downtown. He of course rode the public bus to and from school in uniform everyday. One day of the month they took their drill rifles home with them - on the bus, walking down the street with it slung over their shoulder properly. And then back the next day.

Of course these were old ‘03 Springfield's with the breech drilled, but you couldn't tell that from a distance. No one took the slightest bit of notice. If anybody did say anything it was something like, “oh yea, they're tough on those kids, they make them keep their rifle with them 24 hours a day for one day of the month.” He walked down our street with the rifle at least 20 or 30 times. Man we lived in a different world then.

I realize this is Canada and the standards may be somewhat different there, but ON WHAT GROUNDS????? The scrawled sketch of an elementary school child? Are you kidding? I don't know what liability laws are like in Toronto, but that city had better be prepared to settle a six-figure lawsuit.

Several years ago my wife and I attended a Grandparents' Day at a grandson's kindergarten. The kids were given Legos to make things. My grandson knows I flew in the Navy, so to honor me he made a 5-year-old's idea of a Navy airplane. He then explained the various features, and when he got to "and this is the gun," the kid next to him jumped up, screamed, "Guns are not allowed!" and then ran to tell a teacher. This was in Massachusetts, of course. Nothing more happened but my wife and I were startled by the vicious anti-freedom and anti-military atmosphere shown in this school. That MA issues LTCs is still a minor miracle, and proof that citizen involvement can make a difference. In 1978, Liberals forced a measure on the ballot to ban all handguns in the state. It failed, and organizations like GOAL help to preserve our rights here.

Man we lived in a different world then.

Indeed we did. My high school had a rifle club. We brought our rifles to school on match nights, once a month. The Principal was club adviser. I was club president my senior year. I once had a nice collection of NRA medals, but they were thrown out when my parents moved to a smaller house.

Wow, do you know anything about Canadian government?

There will be plenty of people to blame for this fiasco, starting with the school administration and the police, and going all the way to the current Provincial government, formed by the Liberals and led by Dalton McGinty.

But the idea that the Royal Family is out to suppress all opposition to Liberal political policies is beyond absurd, and way out in tin foil hat territory.

(By the way, the Tories, aka The Conservative Party of Canada, are pro-gun.)

Agreed. But that same jack-booted thuggery is already here in the USA: No knock warrants and police raids. Do you recall that poor US Marine in Arizona that was murdered by the police on a “no knock warrant”? Those thugs busted down his door in full tactical gear, and because he was holding a legally registered firearm trying to protect himself and his family, they shot him down like a common criminal. After the smoke cleared, it was discovered that the cops busted down the wrong door and killed an innocent man. No trials for the cops involved. No investigation. Not even one single reprimand. No apology. No financial compensation for the victim’s family. Nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

Big Brother is here.

Just shut the “F” up, go to work, pay your taxes and do as you are told.

We had a rifle team when I was in High School in the late sixties. We fired .22 bolt action military training rifles at the Tucson Rod and Gun Club every Friday afternoon. Several of us would go Quail hunting after class and had our shotguns in our cars at school. No one gave it a second thought.
