Texas School Board With Their Own Police Force Uses Them To Silence Parents
The Round Rock Independent School District (RRISD) in Texas has their own private police department and is turning them into the gestapo to deal with parents speaking out against the school board.
The RRISD police force has a three-layer chain of command, patrol units, school resource officers, a detective, and a K-9 unit.”
Two fathers, Jeremy Story and Dustin Clark, had recently spoken out against the school board’s “alleged corruption and school officials’ hostility toward parents.” In August Story, a minister, was forcefully removed from a public meeting as he “produced evidence that the board had covered up an alleged assault by the superintendent, Hafedh Azaiez, against a mistress.”
During the next meeting Clark, a retired Army captain and other parents were locked out of a public school board meeting about masks. As parents demanded to be allowed back in “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!’”
A few days after Clark was removed from the meeting both men were arrested by the school districts police department, charged with “disorderly conduct with intent to disrupt a meeting,” and placed in jail. Both men were released the following morning.
Parents believe that the school board is trying to send a message to parents that “if you speak out against us, we will turn you into criminals.”
These tactics are not unique to RRISD, Loudoun County, Virginia tried to pull the same stunt but they didn’t have their own police force:
In Loudoun County, Virginia, for example, where parents have protested against critical race theory and a sexual assault cover-up, the superintendent asked the county sheriff to deploy a SWAT team, riot control unit, and undercover agents to monitor parents at school board meetings.
However, the sheriff refused saying that the school board did not give “any justification for such a manpower-intensive request.”
