    Ontario: dad arrested after 4 year old draws picture of gun

    Ontario: dad arrested after 4 year old draws picture of gun

    by Walter Olson on February 25, 2012

    The trouble began at school in Kitchener, Ontario, when a 4-year-old girl drew a picture of her father, Jessie Sansone, with a gun in his hand. When asked about the gun in the picture, according to police, the girl said her siblings played with it and that it scared her. “The school principal, police and child welfare officials… said they had to investigate to determine whether there was a gun in Sansone’s house that children had access to.” And apparently that “investigation” had to involve detaining and strip-searching Sansone when he showed up at school to pick up his daughter, searching his home, and spiriting away his other children to Family and Children’s Services to be interviewed. Sansone was told he was being charged with possession of a firearm — from the article’s context, an offense in itself in that Second-Amendment-less locality. When police searched the Sansone home, they found “a clear plastic toy gun that shoots soft plastic biodegradable BBs and retails for around $20 at Walmart” and he was released without charges.

    I think I would be suing someone if I were the man searched and detained.

    what happened to just asking some questions first. Way overblown response by the officials involved.

    Need to get the little girl art lessons, so she can properly draw a toy gun! They must not have any rights in Canada, oh that might be because they follow the laws in England and Australia. Boy am I really glad George and the boys disconnected us from their legal system.

    Article doesn't say, was it Ontario Canada, or Ontario CA? Either way it sucks. I'd be file a lawsuit over the strip search. They had no probably cause for it, or any of the actions they took.

    KITCHENER — A Kitchener father is upset that police arrested him at his children’s’ school Wednesday, hauled him down to the station and strip-searched him, all because his four-year-old daughter drew a picture of a gun at school.

    “I’m picking up my kids and then, next thing you know, I’m locked up,” Jessie Sansone, 26, said Thursday.

    “I was in shock. This is completely insane. My daughter drew a gun on a piece of paper at school.”

    Shouldn't he still be charged for the kid drawing a picture?
    Shouldn't the kid be permanently kicked out of school?

    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    The sad part is there's a large contingency of people in the US that think that way and they're trying there best to get us to that same point and worse.

    Coming to a town near you...... seems our country is closer and closer to that every day.

    Kids have been expelled from schools in the USA for drawing a picture of a gun. I remember one that was a 2nd grader. So, other than the strip search..... what part of that do you really don't think would happen here ?
