"Why so little protection for children and women?"
The movie is further documentation of the efforts to have James Drennen charged in connection with the assault on two Columbus Public Schoolchildren at West High.
To prepare for the video, listen to the audio of School Board President Terry Boyd hang up on JFK's Kennedy Kent, herself a former Assistant Principal as she calls him for information. Kent personally heard Drennen issue threats to an entire family.
Despite witness statements and statements from the two girls, he's not been charged. Instead, "No Trespass" letters have been issued to Justiceforkids to keep our cameras out of sight, and Prosecutor Steve McIntosh is heard to say:
"Even if we file charges he's not going away for any extended period of time."
So fucking what? Is that some rational basis for not filing a charge when a child suffered a damn concussion?
McIntosh is running for a seat on the Common Pleas bench.
Then the younger rep at the prosecutor's office sums it up in a Go-to-Hell style:
"We could close this door right now and there is nothing you could do about it."
Sadly, it's not just Justiceforkids and KingCast who are complaining: School Board Superintendent Gene Harris recently received an unheralded "No Confidence" vote from her teachers. Take a look.
BTW, JFK informs me that Columbus has now stopped publicly broadcasting the City Hall and School Board meetings entirely. Nice.
