A school in California showed how parts of the country fell in love with the power granted to them by COVID, when they decided to call the police on a 4-year-old student who dared to violate their mandatory mask policy.
The 4-year-old has sensory issues according to the boy’s father who is known only by the name Shawn, making it near impossible for him to wear masks, but the school decided to ignore the child’s disabilities and enforce their gestapo-like tactics instead.
The school had been refusing to allow the child to enter the school for a number of days, when finally Shawn became fed up with the school’s abuse and filmed his encounter with the school’s principle.
The principle threatened to have the child “removed from campus” and then called the police to handle the 4-year-old.
The incident generated a large scale backlash against the school and administrators. After the incident went viral the Mountain View Whisman school district dropped the mask mandate.
Though, it remains unclear why the district even required masking in the first place given the fact that every study proves masks don’t stop the spread of COVID, and on top of that, children face a very low risk when it comes to COVID.
Shawn later noted that the incident was something he never expected from educators and that he once saw them as advocates for students.
“They’re acting as medical enforcement without a medical licensure. I’m completely outraged because I’m a paramedic by trade… I’m livid about this.” he said.
