Man Arrested for Picking Up His Children at School

“Jim Howe, father of two children enrolled in South Cumberland Elementary in  Crossville, Tennessee, arrived at the school on foot at dismissal time: 2:00 PM.  But a new school policy states that students may only leave at 2:00 PM if their  parents are picking them up in cars. Walkers must wait until 2:35 PM. Howe maintained that the policy was meant to apply to students walking home by  themselves, not students walking home with their parents.”

“Avery Aytes, a sheriff deputy and school resource officer, was on hand to  prevent Howes from leaving with his kids.” (emphasis mine) “I’m going to call some help down here and we’re going to take you up to the jail  right now,” said Aytes to Howes. “I’m not putting up with this today. You’re  being childish and it’s uncalled for.”

“The school did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The  sheriff’s office told an ABC local news channel that it  believed Aytes acted responsibly. “The resource officers are there to enforce the law,” said Cumberland County  Sheriff Butch Burgess in a statement. Burgess did agree with Howes, however, that the new pickup policy was causing  chaos. The line of cars picking up kids is so long that it spills out along the  highway, creating safety concerns.”

  1. This “officer” is a real idiot. He tells the lady inside “you can record all you want” and then later assaults her outside and tells her she can’t do what she is doing “on school grounds”.

    The man isn’t even disorderly. The “officer” says the law didn’t say when school is out (I guess in his pea brain that means the school system can change that on the fly if they want to kidnap your children indefinitely because “you’re not the superintendent”). What an idiot.

    Why in the world would you let these people “educate” your children for “free”?

    They may just decide you can’t have them back one day because “school is out when we say it’s out”.

    I guess this is the best education Bill Gates’ money can buy…
