View Full Version : Daughter Draws Picture Of Gun At School. Father Goes To Jail.

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." The school principal, police and child welfare officials, however, all stand by their actions. They said they had to investigate to determine whether there was a gun in Sansone’s house that children had access to.
“From a public safety point of view, any child drawing a picture of guns and saying there’s guns in a home would warrant some further conversation with the parents and child,” said Alison Scott, executive director of Family and Children’s Services. Waterloo Regional Police Insp. Kevin Thaler said there was a complaint from Forest Hills public school that “a firearm was in a residence and children had access to it. We had every concern, based on this information, that children were in danger.” Their concern wasn’t based on the drawing alone, he said.

Neaveh, the child who made the drawing, also made comments about it that raised more flags. Sansone thinks police overreacted. He didn’t find out until hours after his arrest what had actually sparked the incident. He said he went to the school Wednesday afternoon to pick up his three children. He was summoned to the principal’s office where three police officers were waiting. They said he was being charged with possession of a firearm. He was escorted from the school, handcuffed and put in the back of a cruiser.

At the same time, other police officers went to his home, where his wife and 15-month-old child were waiting for his return. They made his wife come to the police station while the other three children were taken to Family and Children’s Services to be interviewed. “Nobody was given any explanation,” said his wife, Stephanie Squires. “I didn’t know why he was being arrested.“He had absolutely no idea what this was even about. I just kept telling them. ‘You’re making a mistake.’ ”

At the police station, Sansone talked to a lawyer who said only that he was being charged with possession of a firearm, Sansone said. He kept asking questions. He was given a blanket and told he would appear before a judge in the morning to post bail. “I was getting pretty scared at that point,” Sansone said. “It seemed like I was actually being charged at this point.” He was forced to remove his clothes for a full strip search.

Several hours later, a detective apologized and said he was being released with no charges, Sansone said. The detective told him that his four-year-old daughter had drawn a picture of a man holding a gun. When a teacher asked her who the man was, the girl replied, “That’s my daddy’s. He uses it to shoot bad guys and monsters.” “To be honest with you, I broke down,” Sansone said. “My character got put down so much. I was actually really hurt, like it could happen that easy. “How do you recognize a criminal from a father?’’

He said he thought he had good relations with the principal who offered him a job last year counselling students at the school. “We’re educated,’’ he said. “I’m a certified PSW (personal support worker) and a life issues counsellor. I go into schools to try to make a difference.’’

After he was released, Sansone was asked to sign a paper authorizing a search of his home. He signed, even though he didn’t have to, he said.

“I just think they blew it out of proportion,’’ Squires said. “It was for absolutely nothing. They searched our house upside down and found nothing. They had the assumption he owned a firearm.

“The way everything happened was completely unnecessary, especially since we know the school very well. I don’t understand how they came to that conclusion from a four-year-old’s drawing.’’

Canada's got some severe gun control laws...but this seems a little over the top even for them.

Then don't read or respond to the thread. It's pretty simple. You and Rick Santorum have the same hard-on for libertarians. You guys should go hang out together and watch Anderson Cooper.

Well I spent 10 minutes trying to figure out where that newspaper website was out of. It mentioned Canada, but it also mention the Rangers. I figured it's got to be in upstate New York somewhere because why would we be talking about gun laws in Canada? They have no bearing on our gun laws here.

As for your snippy little comment: I'm not a fan of Rick Santorum and I don't know when Anderson Cooper is on. Thanks.

You be surprised. I actually have a 4 year old girl she doesn't play GTA but she does play with her older brother and cousins. And they play things like "shooting aliens", the outer space ones or interdimensional ones depending who you ask.

Let's put it this way, if guns are ever outlawed in the USA, it won't be any USA that you or I will recognize, if it's even the USA at all.

The government cannot outlaw guns, but they will definately try to regulate them down to single shot bb guns.
The constitution never mentions ammo. That will be taken away(regulated) at some point. Stock up gentlemen.
That story is just shocking. I hope the father can sue them, and then move to a free country.

Definately confusing...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitchener_Rangers


The Kitchener Rangers are a major junior ice hockey team in the Ontario Hockey League that have called Kitchener, Ontario, Canada their home since 1963.

....but don't know reason why no relevance with our Canadian neighbors. Especially with policies that are tended to promoted and as something to be "imported"...whether its Canadas stricter gun laws or universal healtcare.

They'll change any and every aspect of whatever law they deem a threat to their power. And they absolutely view an armed populice as a threat to their power, they view it that way because it is a threat. And they will chip away at it whenever they get the chance. Yes it has started with ammo and it will expand. Why? Why will it expand? Because the vast majority of people will say ''This will never happen. The right to own firearms is a pillar of America, so we dont have to worry.''

I remember when I went to NY on a job contract. I was told by the upstate people that they were required to retreat by NY state law if someone invaded thier home.

I cannot imagine living like that. I don't understand how people can live in a state like that.

The mindset of "peasant" rights is precisely why we have to continually stand up for our constitutional rights.
Some of you may disagree with me, but the democratic party is a leading advocate of gun control.
What is the answer or solution? Term limits of 4 years for all elected offices, and reduced paychecks and benefits IMHO. The government "Royalty" and all of their entitlements has to be reduced to a middle class wage.

That is just crazy. Just let them in, take whatever they want, harm your wife or children, and then they silence the witnesses. No wonder the crime rates are off the charts.
I know one thing, in Florida, and I am sure Texas, the citizens of those states would do the right thing and save the tax payers a lot of money in storing that human garbage.
