Find one of your children.
Wait for when it’s super cold out – like, below zero.
Soak them with a super-soaker. Then force them outside, and don’t let them back in the house, or any cars, or into the neighbors’ houses.
When (hopefully) someone calls the cops, you’ll be thrown into jail for child endangerment. And you should be.
Because “idiot” wouldn’t describe it – but “evil” pretty much would.
Most of you have no doubt seen this story; a Saint Paul middle school forced a junior high kid to wait outside, in a swimsuit and towel, in -2 weather and -25 wind chill. There’d been a fire drill while she was in the pool, and the teachers didn’t let her go to her locker, grab a coat, or anything but a towel (emphasis added):
[The girl] asked to wait inside an employee’s car, or at the elementary school across the street. But administrators believed that this would violate official policy, and could get the school in trouble, so they opted to simply let the girl freeze.
Let’s try to go through the “minds” of these hamsters: Given a choice to “violate policy” and “endanger a child’s health and safety”, the kid got chucked under a bus.
What does it say that a bunch of junior high kids are smarter, and have more moral clarity, than their administrators?
Her fellow classmates, at least, huddled around her to try to keep her warm. And one teacher did eventually lend her a coat.
There should be arrests. Idiot school administrators should be frog-walked out of their building in handcuffs. Their mug shots should be splashed all over the TV, so parents can keep their children away. Licenses should be slowly torn into long, thin strips.
But that’ll never happen.
