Just a few days ago a man was arrested at a school board meeting for… indecent exposure? Having a violent outburst? Threatening to kill someone? Nope. He got hauled off to jail for asking a question that involved the word “penis.”
But it’s not what you think:
Dean Paterakis was charged with disrupting a school function and resisting an officer without violence Tuesday after he was ejected from a school board meeting dealing with LGBT issues. Paterakis was asked by School Board chairman Andy Ziegler to step away from the speakers’ podium after making what Ziegler said were inappropriate remarks.
What were those inappropriate remarks, you ask? Here’s what the “offender” said…
The reason why I am here now is that we are not putting children’s safety first. When you say that we need to use language that is appropriate, and what we’d do in our schools should be what we have here… Would it be OK now if I showed you a picture of my penis? Because that’s what happened. We have a teacher who put his phone on the big screen and showed, what the students say, was his erect penis.
We’ll never know the rest of the story, because Dean was being dragged away from the mic before he could even finish. You can watch the whole train wreck here.
Here’s why this story is news to us. This guy is arrested for saying “penis” after having a mic handed to him. Or more accurately, for offending someone. The offending part being the man wanted to discuss the alleged inappropriate behavior of a male teacher in a school. The inappropriate behavior being that teacher showing his students his junk. Also, the reason for the public meeting? To talk about LGBT issues at school. This speaker took issue with a teacher showing his students his erect penis. He wants to talk about it being innappropriate. Police arrest him and take him out BY FORCE.
Meanwhile the turd lords who hijacked Milo’s event and physically got in his face? Security did diddly squat for them.
I’ll go ahead and point out the obvious here: this is a horrendous misuse of law enforcement. It may even be that T-word the left never wants us to talk about (TYRANNY, ahem). Remember how we were supposed to have that freedom of speech thing? Where is it? Because I can’t see any reason to haul this guy out in cuffs. But maybe that makes me a racist homophobe?
Can we let the police focus on important stuff? Like arresting bad guys. You know, the people Obama’s admin keeps trying to make us be nice to? (Obama’s DOJ Demands We Stop Calling Convicts ‘Criminals.’ Because Feelings?!) There’s no reason why 5 or 6 officers were needed to carry this guy to jail. Well, besides the fact he dare suggest a grown man showing a penis to school children is offensive and a little icky. That’s a pretty good reason if your an SJW poopmonger pushing an agenda that gay is okay, and more important than the freedom of speech of everyone else, or the genuine privacy issues of people who would just rather not see a man’s ding-aling.
Reminder to the people at this public meeting and anyone else with delicate feelings: freedom of speech trumps your pathetic feelings.
