It's "For The Children", No Doubt

First there was this:

They laughed and cheered when plumber Scott Smith was crash-tackled by police and humiliated at a school board meeting on June 22 as he tried to raise the plight of his 15-year-old daughter, who he says was raped and sodomized in the school bathroom by a boy in a skirt. No one expressed any concern for his daughter. 

There was no compassion, either, from superintendent Scott Ziegler, who claimed bafflingly at the meeting that there had been no assault in a school restroom anywhere in Loudoun County and airily dismissed parents’ concerns about the risks of transgender bathrooms. Then he gave a little woke homily to show those powerless parents in the room who really was in charge. 

“Time magazine in 2016 called that a red herring … we’ve heard it several times tonight from our public speakers but the predator transgender student or person simply does not exist,” he said. 

Tell that to the Smith family. 

The rainbow activist who allegedly threatened Smith’s livelihood at that meeting told him point-blank his daughter’s rape three weeks earlier did not happen, as if she would know.

That made the Dem narrative look bad, so now there's this:

Democrats in the Virginia General Assembly voted for — and Governor Ralph Northam signed — a law allowing schools to refrain from reporting instances of sexual battery, stalking, violation of a protective order, and violent threats occurring on school property in 2020.

Some people are so open-minded that their brains fall out.  I'm talking to you, lefties. 

Update, 10/16/21:  And then...

Scott Smith, a Loudoun County father who was arrested at that June event, said this week that his daughter was sexually assaulted in a girls' bathroom at Stone Bridge High School by a male student who was wearing a skirt. The Loudoun County sheriff's office has confirmed that an on-campus sexual assault was reported on the day Smith says his daughter was victimized. 

The boy accused of assaulting Smith's daughter later allegedly groped a female student at nearby Broad Run High School after forcing her into an empty classroom, Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney Buta Biberaj told WTOP in an interview this week.

Where I have been reading about this problem, it has been brought up that even after the rapist was moved to a different school, he did the same thing.

People, rightly so, have gotten on the Catholic Church's case about moving predators around without informing the new parishes/ministries. School systems need to be held to the same standards for both students and teachers/other workers

We must remember that the phrase "Believe all Women" as parroted by so-called Progressives does not actually apply to all women...

And yet were supposed to believe Christine Blasey Ford. Wasn't that what they said? Always believe the victim?

I thought that the school had a duty to protect ALL students. Silly me. In 20 years of teaching students with emotional, behavioral, and psychiatric issues, I have never found that a "transitioning" student's main issue was gender identification. Not once. There was always much, much more going on.
