What would I have done?
I honestly don't know. But I can guess, based on what I have
done in the past when dealing with overly-aggressive "community leaders."
I would assume I would have questioned the police before allowing entry: "Why are you here? Who called you? What exactly are you looking for?" There's
a good chance I might have let them in if the answers had been reasonable and sufficiently vague, along the lines of "We were tipped off there might
be illegal items in your home." Of course, the truth would have come out during the search, and I would have withdrawn that invitation... and as long
as the police have not discovered anything illegal, yes, one can withdraw that invitation if it was given under false pretenses.
Once I found out what the issue is, I would have confronted the Principal, likely by phone like Ms. Sperry did.
Sperry asked the principal why the
issue couldn’t have been handled privately by phone rather than sending the police. “He said that was not their policy,” she said.
At that point, things would not have been peasant. Your silly little policy does not extend to me, and I would likely have driven to the school,
forced my way in, and told him/her that to their face, daring anyone to do anything about it. Hopefully that situation would have ended as all my
other "encounters" have... with the person I am confronting deciding the better part of valor is not ticking off the already ticked off redneck
standing in front of them farther
If so, I imagine I would have made my point and left. If not, well, I'd be posting this from the jail and someone would be reconsidering their life
choices from a hospital bed. I can do a lot of damage before the police get there, call for backup, backup arrives, and they finally put me down.
But then I read on... this would not have ended well...
According to Sperry, the
spy teacher took a screenshot of the boy’s
bedroom, which is incredibly creepy and a violation of the family’s privacy. When the mother demanded to see the screenshot taken by the
creeper-teacher, she was told she would not be allowed to view it because it wasn’t part of his official school record.
That is a direct invasion of my privacy and an attack on my child. I don't know this teacher, but I have already found out the hard way that they have
no issue with calling the cops to me without cause. They have just performed covert operations to continue this activity against me and my child, have
admitted they had no right to do so, and refused to stop. I cannot fathom any situation where there would not be bloodshed. At that point, my instinct
would likely be to literally hunt this dog down and end them once and for all, probably in a very gruesome manner. The police would not be able to
stop me; you mess with my kids and you have just declared war... that's just how it is. You can kill me, sure, but I get first strike.
I am not spouting bluster here, nor am I trying to be some "keyboard warrior." Several times in my life situations similar (but much less aggressive)
have caused altercations between myself and teachers, principals, and even police. Not once have those issues ended with anything other than a
confrontation, and not once have any of those confrontations ended with anything other than them backing away and apologizing... and that typically in
front of others to make sure the embarrassment keeps the memory fresh. I am a peaceful man, but I am also a family man... and it would be my great
honor to die protecting my children.
That's not a threat, but it is a warning... there is a line which is not crossed. Taking screenshots of my home and child for private use after trying
to have my child taken from me for some political agenda (and make no mistake, that was the intent here) is way past that line. I would have no issue
whatsoever utilizing deadly force in that situation.
Teachers have my utmost respect... but anyone can lose that respect if they attack me or mine. Some people need to understand that or things will
someday end very badly for them when they cross the wrong guy. I'm a redneck; I mean what I say and I say what I mean. Treat me with a bit of respect
and we'll get along just fine, but come after me and you better be ready for the war you just started. Cross that line too far and there will be no
more conversation. I will
finish what you started.
