Two Mothers Arrested at GA School Board Meeting, One Allegedly Slammed Against a Wall

Two Mothers Arrested at GA School Board Meeting, One Allegedly Slammed Against a Wall

“Someone came from behind me and jerked my arm up.”

This is crazy, and it underscores how seriously people are taking this ideological battle.

The Tennessee Star reports:

Two Gwinnett County Parents Arrested, One Allegedly Bruised, Slammed Against Wall at School Board Meeting

Law enforcement officers at Thursday’s Gwinnett County Public School (GCPS) Board meeting arrested two mothers, one on a charge of criminal trespass and another on a charge of obstruction as part of the school’s new security measures.

Both mothers told The Georgia News on Friday they did nothing wrong and that School Resource Officers (SROs) overreacted — to put it mildly.

Karen Pirkle said she displeased GCPS Board members last month by speaking out against COVID-19 mask requirements. She returned for this month’s meeting. GCPS officials told Pirkle she was trespassing.

“Someone came from behind me and jerked my arm up. Mind you, I am a retired deputy sheriff. I know the routine. They were trying to handcuff me, but their handcuffs were in my palm, so they weren’t getting it onto my wrist. And they kept saying I was resisting, which I was not. Then I asked the officers if I could at least give all my stuff to my husband. They said yes,” Pirkle said.

“Brenda, the other lady arrested, came running up and asked ‘Can I take your phone and paperwork to your husband?’ I said ‘I really appreciate it.’ We have never met. This was our first night meeting. She took it and somehow when she was going through the metal detector they found a pair of kindergarten scissors in her bag because she would crochet during the meeting.”

The other woman, Brenda Stewart, said she witnessed law enforcement officers “being rough” and hurting Pirkle.

“I go up to the two metal detectors. There is a security desk there. I set my purse down and said I will get her phone. Then I went through the metal detector, and then I came back. I wasn’t going to stay [at the meeting]. My plan had not been to stay there very long anyway,” Stewart said.

There’s no way around it; if the above story is true, the United States of America is in trouble; there’s no other way to say this.

    Yes, well. Soi-disant conservatives have been “backing the blue” for decades despite the fact that the police are not your friends and never will be.

    Parents have been abdicating their basic responsibility to raise their children to the public school boards for decades despite the fact that this Marxist indoctrination has been going on since I was in elementary school.

    If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

A correction in the title needs to be made. Gwinnett County is in Georgia so I would guess that it was two Georgia moms. The Tennessee Star is an independent news source in Tennessee.

Shades of Patricia Konie.
(And then the MSM tried to justify the State’s assault on this granny as a “public health” matter, i.e., “the flood waters were polluted, so she was brutalized for her own good.”)

America will not be free again until Merrick Garland has his arm jerked up behind him. Even better, his neck.

    The problem is a lot more than just Merrick garland. As noted above, too many conservatives back the blue. They are not your friend, never were, and never will be. People seem to forget that it was the police that herded people into the trucks to go to the concentration camps, not the military.

Police vary by locale. It’s been said that in heaven, the English are the police, the Swiss are the bankers, Germans are the mechanics, French are the cooks, and Italians are the lovers.

In hell, Germans are police, English are cooks, French are mechanics, Italians are bankers, and the Swiss are the lovers.

German polizei are very different from English Bobbys. Our guys fall in various places between the extremes.

    Are Poliça become so militarized, but they have forgotten the mission of keeping peace and order in the community. Add to that the Supreme Court stating that they have no obligation to protect the public, and I wonder: why do we have police in the first place? What are they for Asad for keeping the elite in charge and the common people in line?
