School-to-prison pipeline feeds the police state

By: Mark Luedtke

 A lot of people get upset with me for calling government schools “prison schools.” Those people, like parents who send their children to government prison schools, must have their heads in the sand.Russia Today – ironically a more reliable source of U.S. news than the U.S. accomplice press – told the story of a Texas boy tasered for doing the right thing: “Noe Nino de Rivera, Acosta’s son, suffered a ‘severe brain hemorrhage’ when [Bastrop county sheriff’s deputy] McMillan tasered him after the boy, known as N.N., had intervened to halt a fight between two females at Cedar Creek High School on Wednesday, Nov. 20, Acosta claims in a federal lawsuit.”

It gets worse. “McMillan told N.N. to step away, and he did so with his hands raised, but McMillan tasered him nevertheless, Acosta alleges. Immobilized by the taser, N.N. fell and struck his head on the floor, at which point McMillan handcuffed the unconscious boy, 17. Acosta says school officials initially ‘delayed in calling for medical assistance even though N.N. was in an obvious emergency medical situation.’”

Russia Today is careful not to assign guilt to somebody who is still presumed innocent, contrary to the normal behavior of the U.S. accomplice press, but violence by law enforcement against schoolchildren has become the norm, not the exception.

While propagandists preach about dealing with bullies, any student actually dealing with a bully is punished. In a similar, though less traumatic case, 13-year-old Briar MacLean was recently disciplined for disarming a knife-wielding bully at his school in Canada. His school administrators claimed instead of playing hero, he should have run away and gotten a teacher. And we wonder why bullying runs rampant and so many people stand by and watch predators prey on others.

But nonintervention is exactly the behavior our rulers want students and adults to embrace, because they are the ultimate predators. If people decide to intervene against all predators, government will collapse, their looting will end and people will become free, prosperous and secure. Our rulers can’t allow that, so nonintervention and deferring to authority is the most important lesson coerced into government prison school students.

The police state nature of schools isn’t limited to Texas and Canada. It encompasses all points in between, including Ohio. The Dayton Daily News reported on a drug sweep at Springfield High School: “Several K-9 units trained to recognize illegal drugs were in Springfield High School this morning as part of a routine check.” Random, routine drug sweeps with drug dogs is the new normal for prison school students. Never mind drug dogs are notoriously error-prone – even CBS says so, so it must be true – it’s the show of force that matters. In a few years, after those students become adults, the same sort of random, house-to-house drug sweeps will become routine in neighborhoods. Our brutal rulers break down resistance of children in government prison schools so they can take advantage of those same children when they become adults.

The DDN continued with the justification that will remain unchanged: “The unannounced search was part of Springfield City School District’s ongoing effort to ensure a safe, secure and drug-free learning environment …” Gosh, we all want safe, secure and drug-free environments, so please randomly search our homes, cars, workplaces and neighborhoods with unreliable drug dogs, too. If you don’t support this, you’re a terrorist. Only government oppression can keep us free. That’s how far we’ve allowed our country to devolve.

Despite this oppression, supposedly in our best interest, heroin use in Ohio has reached epidemic proportions. Coincidentally, Afghanistan – where the U.S. has been waging war since before the dinosaurs went extinct – produced a record amount of opium this year. I wonder if there’s a connection. Maybe government creates the problems it purports to solve. provided a short list of prison school abuses: a 12-year-old girl was handcuffed for drawing on her desk, a 13-year-old was arrested for “passing gas” and a 5-year-old was handcuffed for misbehaving in kindergarten.

Then there are the metal detectors and lockdown locks on the doors that always fail to keep out the mass murderers. These prison tactics don’t keep students safe. They’re not intended to. They brainwash students into living life as prisoners.

TomDispatch continued: “Though it’s a national phenomenon, Mississippi currently leads the way in turning school behavior into a police issue. The Hospitality State has imposed felony charges on schoolchildren for ‘crimes’ like throwing peanuts on a bus. Wearing the wrong color belt to school got one child handcuffed to a railing for several hours. All of this goes under the rubric of ‘zero-tolerance’ discipline, which turns out to be just another form of violence legally imported into schools.”

But the worst is when prison-school shrinks hook students on drugs. The shooters at Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora and Newtown all had been hooked by government shrinks on government’s psychotic drugs. All served the police state’s goal of obtaining complete control over everybody. We’re all prisoners of the state, suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.

To put an end to the police state, we must start by freeing children from government’s prison schools.
