You're certainly right that it never should have happened in the first place, because calling in the police to assault parents over a dress code violation is really stupid and shouldn't happen.

Were you there ? This was not simply some parent "objecting" to a school rule, and his daughter complying, it was an out of control pair who defied the order to leave the premises, so they got what they deserved.

This is 2019, not a time for any kind of bad scene at any school......you have read about the multiple school shootings, haven't you ? All they had to do was act like civilized, non confrontational human beings, and they could have walked out of there, not in handcuffs.

Looking at the picture of the dad, I am not surprised his daughter was acting the same way, he does not look like a member of the PTA. If people want to act like fools, there are consequences.


When my own sons were in school, there were times when my wife and I would go to the office to discuss something we felt needed corrected, but we met with them like adults, had a sane discussion, and never ended up leaving in the back seat of a patrol car. THAT is how reasonable people handle these things.

Yes. In fact the article states that it's not clear how she, the student, violated the dress code. Reading further into this thread there are theories from posters. She dressed slu**y, girls distract boys. Wow.

Oh, yeah, looking at the guy's mug shot, he is not Father of the Year. Looks a little drugged out to me.

MANY pubic schools have found uniforms a big HELP.

Dress codes are stupid.

I was That Parent when my kids were in school - but of course nobody called the cops on me because I'm a middle aged white lady.
" I'm a middle aged white lady" What a RACIST comment!

Honestly, Im happy to see when students and parents stand up and refuse to comply with DUMB rules, we are not all 'compliant subjects'.
I believe back up was called because the pair refused to leave. They refused to leave and were violent. Resource officers have gotten into a lot of trouble for using force trying to escort students and parents so why wouldnt they call for back up just to cover their butts if nothing else. I would given the attitudes, not unlike your own, that seems to think it is ok to defy school policy and ok for students to assault others including officers, teachers and administrators. I'd say you would be talking differently if the resource officer had kicked the girl or her father and refused to leave after being told to do so.

As another poster said parents can meet with teachers and administrators and attend school board meetings when they disagree with school rules or policy. Back when my youngest was in HS, the HS initiated a dress code and that is exactly what the parents did. There was no assault, kicking or making a scene.

Schools have policies in place and there are guidelines about when they're supposed to involve the police. Nobody with half of a brain would risk their job by ignoring policy.

If you don't want to comply, don't send your child to a school that mandates the wearing of a uniform. It's that simple. Sending them and then backing their attempt to thumb their nose at authority and disregard the rules is one of the reasons we have idiots who cannot keep jobs.

The public middle school and high school I went to, had dress codes, which were ignored by many students, I dont remember police ever being called in relation to a dress code violation, the school didnt even make that big a deal of it when students violated it.

Police weren't called because of a dress code violation. How many times must that be repeated before posters read the article and learn the reason they were called?

Beyond that, however, just because some schools lacked control and didn't enforce policy when you were a student, doesn't mean most schools are going to be, or should be, like that.
