Sadly, working in schools I can believe it. Some teachers are frighteningly ignorant, even in subjects they are supposedly teaching!

I saw that when it happened and couldn't believe how it had got that far.  There seemed to be a lot of knee-jerk reaction from some of the teaching staff, who brought the police in without talking to the son or parents properly first.

Hard to believe that it reached such extremes without taking some time to listen.

It does, however, feel that this is part of a wider issue we have about shutting
down opposing views, maintaining fixed opinions that have no interest in even
hearing an alternative idea.

Really sad.

Phil, (Glorfindel)....

I totally agree..... Thumbs up

"If you don't fully agree with MY point of view, I'm going to have a complete hissy fit....or worse."

The more I think about this, the more I despair....Truly. Roll eyes Roll eyes Roll eyes Roll eyes

I genuinely hope that whoever 'outed' these two completely innocent folk, gets prosecuted for wasting police time.

There are likely elements to this we don't know or don't appreciate. It may well be the case that all parties acted within parameters that felt right and justifiable at the time.

That pic reminds me of the classic card game 'Illuminati' (Boy Sprouts,
Gnomes of Zurich etc etc).
