A parent who sent an email critical of the Florida school superintendent who implemented a radical transgender policy that strips away parent rights, found officers from the school district’s brand new police force at his door the next day.

This is a fairly shocking level of intimidation, and certainly at least some parents must have got the message: Shut up, sit down and let us handle your children. Or else we may come knocking.

We wrote about this radical policy last week, but confess we did not see this tactic coming. The essentials are this:

At the recommendation of the Sarasota County School District’s LGBTQI Task Force, School Superintendent Todd Bowden issued “guidelines” to govern how the district’s more than 50 public schools handle transgender and gender questioning students — starting as young as kindergarten. This stealthy radicalization of local policy comes just as the Trump administration considers rolling back the Obama administration’s un-scientific and lawless expansion of Title IX.

The Sarasota County school guidelines implement a full-blown transgender protocol allowing students to use whichever bathroom and locker room corresponds with the gender with which they “identify;” and forces everyone else to use the pronoun of the students’ choice. But maybe the biggest affront is that the guidelines also say that parents can not be informed of their child’s decision to identify as a different gender, because some trans activists claim the schools are a “safer” environment than the home.

It was keeping it secret from the parents, along with the general egregiousness of the rest of the policy, that attracted a lot of controversy. A 31-year-old Sarasota father of a young child not yet in the school system, sent the superintendent a brief email criticizing the guidelines.

“If Sarasota County schools will not keep my daughter safe from mentally ill male students who want to use the same bathroom as my daughter then I will. Listen very clearly, if/when something happens to little girls at school by transgender males exposing themselves in bathrooms/locker rooms or worse, you will be held liable. See you around.”

The superintendent decided that being “held liable” or maybe “see you around” was a physical threat and went to the school police about it. Of course, the letter-writer is right. The superintendent is totally liable, or responsible, because he bypassed both the School Board and the public in making the decision. That level of authoritarian action would seem to expose him to legal liability, which is the obvious point the father was making.

The twist is that the school district is still in the process of building its brand new internal police force — one of very few in Florida — in the wake of the Parkland shootings last year and hasty Florida legislation passed under the pressure of emotional activism. That means this particular superintendent, with his apparent tendencies, now has a quasi-personal police force. No one wants to think he would possibly use it in such a way, but it is not out of line with his heavy-handed tactics.

So while the letter-writing father was at work, his wife called him to say that two school district police officers showed up at their house. It’s not clear, but apparently the officers do not even have any jurisdiction off school property. They said they were there about the email.

That’s a scary situation for anyone, and certainly a parent. To their professional credit, once the father showed them the email, they realized there was nothing to it and apologized for being there. However, it turns out that school police were also at the letter writer’s father’s house, questioning him and his neighbors.

Of course nothing came of it because there was nothing there in the first place — nothing to it except to display a classic intimidation move from a Superintendent that has a bit of a reputation for playing hardball and intimidating others — including school board members who he supposedly answers to.

It’s safe to say that the message has been received by other parents who are uncomfortable with boys being allowed in the bathroom and locker room with their daughters at school, and are very uncomfortable with their Johnny being Sue at school and the school keeping that information from them and accommodating Johnny as Sue.

The message? Keep your mouth shut.

    “The message? Keep your mouth shut.”

    No, the message is ARM UP, ORGANIZE YOUR NEIGHBORS, sue the CRAP out of the school, and any “school police” who illegally sets foot on your property has 1 minute to get off or being considered an armed threat and trespasser.

      You are absolutely CORRECT! Parents better wake up… well those who are STILL sane and CARE about their precious children that is.

      So much more easily said than done. Where I live, most people in the neighborhood actually support the public schools and are liberal if not outright leftists. Most people who would sue the school do not have the time nor the money to hire a lawyer to do this. As far as having one minute to vacate my property or be considered an armed threat, that too is largely rooted in some kind of wild west fantasy. When armed police (assuming they were armed; if they are not, then they are not really police) show up at your door the last thing you want to do is antagonize them. So all of this sounds wonderful but if it were really so easy then you would have hundreds if not thousands of these lawsuits. So in an ideal world you’re right but in the world most people live in, sadly, this just doesn’t fly.

    My question is, why does any decent parent have their children enrolled in these schools?
    Either get them into a private school or home-school them. Find a retired teacher to tutor them.
    Do something but, get them out!

      This is what I’ve been screaming for years now…. REMOVE THEM from these institutions of EVIL! Thankfully our oldest two grandkids have been reared and raised in a Christian home and attend a AWESOME Christian school (since pre-school) and have turned into wonderful, Godly young adults. The younger two are raised in a home where no Christians abide and go to public schools. They are at the mercy of the state and school sadly. The oldest (the girl who is 12) informed us that she’s an atheist. We were heartbroken to say they least and the younger will more than likely follow her. Nearly made us cry.

      And if you can’t get them out, then send them to Hillsdale College!

    they show up at door, she calls hubby at work. Does that mean she remains home all day and has time to home school but send their kid to a locally approved indoctrination center?
