This is ridiculous. The guy was not being confrontational at all.

The high school my oldest son goes to has a rule that a kid can't be picked up after 3:00 PM. The day I have to pick him, or my youngest when he starts high school next year, up after 3, and they tell me that I can't, is going to turn really ugly. I have to agree with ForSquirel. This equals kidnapping. I have every right to pick my child up at any time I damn well please. Yes, I understand its a rule, but law trumps rules, and the law says its kidnapping if they are withheld from me.

The reason it was a "big deal" to wait for the cars and busses to finish before walk-homes could leave was because they stated in the video that that takes over an hour. If I'm standing in the school office and am required to wait an extra HOUR before I can have my kids ... bull-focking-shat.

My kids go to a much smaller school than this obviously but the policy here is that we the parents/guardians have it in the school records/files who is authorized to pick up our kids along with contact info and photo (in our case just mom, dad and grandma). If you're on that list, you say, "Hi, I'm here to pick up _____" and they call the classroom and have the kid come to the office. Though it's generally considerred better manners to give advanced notice that the kid will be a pickup that day and at what time.

@wiscesq: Apparently this was the 3rd day this Dad had tried to pick up his kids like this.

I think the policy is idiotic, and the 'blind rule-following' is sickening. What happened to common sense? Is there a rule forbidding it now?

Update: Supervisor Backs Guard

It's the School Policy that ALL children being picked up by car depart FIRST, and only then can parents on foot pick up their kids.
Amazing.
The Super isn't sure if it's "legal" but it's STILL THE RULE!!

@LordJim: Yes, they're full-fledged Police Officers with a PC euphemism for a title.

"student resource officer" = School Cop

@Rick_S Telling a parent they're NOT ALLOWED to pick up their own children is NOT a sane or reasonable idea. The policy was obviously made by idiots, and enforcement of it does more harm than good.

School is out, parent pick-up = don't have to wait. The father is 100% correct.

SO the school can just 'keep the kids for an unspecified amount of time'? Sounds like kidnapping to me.

So kids who walk home (alone) need to wait for the buses to leave first?


Actually I can understand that policy. I was in 8th grade in back in 1980 and before that the dismissal policy was to leave last class and report to homeroom.

After a few minutes the kids who walked/biked or got picked up by parents could all leave along with the kids who rode the first round of buses. This would have caused quite a bit of commotion on the south side of the school. One day there was some kind of accident or incident and it was decided that only early bus riders would leave at first, thus creating less congestion on that side of the school. Sucked for me as I walked AND came in and out the other side of the building so I never even got close to the "danger zone." I also only lived a hundred yards from the school. So I had to sit in homeroom for another 20 minutes every day.

I think with the sue happy culture of today schools are worried

I would have knocked the crap out of him for keeping my kids from me- let a jury sort that out.

I was expecting an orange Dodge Charger charging in to rescue Jim-Bob from Rosco P. Coltrane.

"Reminds me more of a Soviet Union than United States of America."

Unfortunately that's becoming more and more true everyday that Obama stays in office. He has emboldened these bureaucrats and minions to do things like this.

It seemed to me all of this could have been avoided if the dad were willing to wait until after the buses left.

Strange. It seemed to me that all of this could have been avoided if the office let the father walk his children home after school.

I'll be honest, I thought the man showed incredible restraint. I would not have been so patient in his shoes.

Imagine if they did this at the doctors office; would you tolerate that? Why then would you tolerate it at a school?

Oh right, because it's a public school run by the almighty government.

I would have made sure I had it on the video that he was insisting on that, and then I would have waited quietly. Then I would have pursued legal action against him for unlawfully detaining my kids.

Hearing the accent of the guard, I immediately assume he is almost done with his coloring class.

I don't get this at all! I'd have thought the school officials would be quite pleased with the parent willing to take over responsibility for the kids in a quick, efficient manner. Seems like there's some really profound stupidity going on in that part of Tennessee.

I bet when he went in for the booking, the real cops were like "uhh... who the drat are you?"

Reminds me more of a Soviet Union than United States of America. Except there the corruption actually made the system work. This is starting to be so far up in it's own arse than what that system was at the end..

Government is anywhere except where it is needed. And on the only part where it should be you idiots picker (welfare and all that health stuff) when you should consider other areas to fix first.

Like critically simplifying legislation and frivolous lawsuits by introducing a concept called "common sense" in to the basis of it all. That's the real reason this incident happened in the first place, you are so concerned whether the poorest of the poor get too much or not that you are blind to see the real issues.

It's just not US that this is happening, it's continuing issue in bureaucracy and modern "democracy". Making normal, simple life so hard that you don't notice what is happening.

I though the dad handled it well.

Unacceptable behavior and policy. Of course idiot bureaucrats have been around for a long time but this kind of takes the cake.

@MeGrendel

"I consider it common knowledge."

Why would it be common knowledge to anyone outside the US?

This is so ridiculous - I died when he put the handcuffs on him. I was hoping not to side with the dad, because if it was warm enough for a t-shirt, why is he wearing a knit cap (d-bag). But he was right.
