Round Rock, Texas: Two fathers Jeremy Story, a minister, and Dustin Clark, a retired Army captain, spoke out against the Round Rock Independent School District at school board meetings in two separate incidents, and both men were later arrested at their homes. Mr. Story gave evidence against the school superintendent in a domestic violence case and was physically shut down at the meeting. On a later date, Mr. Clark was removed by officers from school property when he objected to being locked out of a school board meeting about mandating masks. The Round Rock Independent School District has its own police force with patrol units, school resource officers, a detective and a K-9 unit. The sheriff’s office was the arresting agency. The Round Rock Independent School District apparently has the power to order the arrest of citizens in their homes for criticizing the board.

School boards have always attracted their share of controversies: disagreements over curriculum, bitter election fights, and personality clashes. But in recent months, as parents express their frustration over COVID lockdowns, mask mandates and critical race theory, local school districts and federal law enforcement have upped the ante by monitoring parents, requesting undercover agents at school board meetings, and even arresting parents who attend board meetings to express dissent.

The latest and most egregious example comes from Round Rock, Texas. In a series of school board meetings this fall, two fathers — a minister named Jeremy Story and a retired Army captain named Dustin Clark — spoke out against alleged corruption and school officials’ hostility toward parents.

Journalist Pedro Gonzalez reported that at an August meeting, Story had calmly “produced evidence that the board had covered up an alleged assault by the superintendent, Hafedh Azaiez, against a mistress.” The superintendent and school board president cut him off midsentence and ordered officers to remove him from the premises.

At the next meeting, in September, with the district’s controversial mask mandate on the agenda, the school board locked the majority of parents out of the room, preventing them from speaking. Clark and other frustrated parents asked the board to open the nearly empty room to the public. Instead, school board president Amy Weir directed officers to remove Clark from school property. As he was dragged out by two officers, Clark shouted to the audience: “It’s an open meeting! Shame on you. Communist! Communist! Let the public in!”

A few days later, the school district, in coordination with law enforcement, sent police officers to the homes of both men, arrested them, and put them in jail on charges of “disorderly conduct with intent to disrupt a meeting.”

Families and supporters of Story and Clark held an all-night protest outside the jail, until the men were released the following morning. They are now raising funds for their legal defense.

TIme to get out of the corrupted indoctrination centers called “public schools” and home school or start private tutoring services. While the founders were at it they should have mandated separation of state and education.

If the school district has its own police unit with K9, it would seem the people should incorporate an overlay (a bit of paperwork), to include beyond the boundaries of the school district, such as the whole county or portion thereof if that is not practical. Have their own part time or as needed, police or deputized force whose mission is to jail any so called officer at ANY level, including FBI, harassing people within that overlay. So when you have Evil Order Following police officers, sheriffs, SWAT, FBI, etc throwing their weight around because they have guns and little… Read more »
