This is insanity- but because everyone is afraid of being called a ‘racist’ by the left- hardly anyone will say anything about the absolute craziness of the left’s public policy about school violence – not even in time so close to the last school mass murder in Uvalde Texas. Where a student was permitted to be violent, act out psychopathic tendencies in public, threaten people and talk about shooting up and school.
Apparently, sanity and self-defense is a’ White Thing’? You can not make this up about how crazy the left is:
“The California State Senate voted Thursday to end a requirement that students who threaten violence against school officials be reported,” The Daily Caller reported.
Before the California law was passed, existing law stated that whenever a school official is “attacked, assaulted, or physically threatened by any pupil,” staff was “required to promptly report the incident to specified law enforcement authorities.” The new bill repealed this requirement.
California passed the law just two days after an 18-year-old gunman opened fire on an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, killing two adults and 19 children.
Days after the Uvalde massacre, the California State Senate has voted to repeal a requirement that schools report threats of violence by students against its workers. The bill that repeals it is supported by the ACLU. https://t.co/3WbwerZy2i pic.twitter.com/aOojtQPbQ5

The law was endorsed by ACLU California Action. The organization called it a win for racial equality.
The law that was changed was:
“Once students make contact with law enforcement, they are less likely to graduate high school and more likely to wind up in jail or prison. These harms fall disproportionately on students from marginalized groups: Black, Indigenous, and Latinx students,” the organization said in a statement.
The sponsor of the bill, California State Sen. Steven Bradford, told the Daily Caller, “Our existing system has led to alarming disparities in the type of students who are most likely to suffer these harms. Black students, Latinx students, students of color, and students with disabilities are disproportionately referred to law enforcement, cited, and arrested.”
“SB 1273 will reduce law enforcement involvement in schools and give teachers and administrators, who are often best suited to determine the appropriate response, the flexibility and power they need to support students,” Bradford said, explaining that, “Teachers and administrators will still be able to call law enforcement if they believe that is the right response to a particular incident, but they will not be required to do so.”
