As Twitchy reported, a parent was escorted from a “forum” on Common Core and arrested on charges of second-degree assault of a police officer and disturbing a school operation. Sean Hannity helped spread the video on his show tonight, and he also reported that, according to the Baltimore Sun, those charges have been dropped.
The Baltimore County state’s attorney’s office dropped assault charges Monday against Robert Small, who had been led out of the Thursday night meeting in Towson by an off-duty police officer. Small interrupted education officials, complaining that new standards were aimed at sending children to community colleges.
“It was clear that Mr. Small violated the rules of the meeting and disrupted the meeting. It was also clear that the officer acted appropriately and did have probable cause to make an arrest on both charges,” the state’s attorney’s office said in a statement. “In the interest of justice, further prosecution will not accomplish anything more. Therefore, the charges have been dismissed.”
That’s hardly the end of the story, though. What is Common Core really, if it can lead to a parent being escorted from the room and arrested just for criticizing it?
Hannity’s brief segment on Common Core, which is poised to influence just about every child in the United States, left viewers hungry for more.
That would be great.
How about it, Sean? An hour-long special? America is in need of an education on Common Core.
