Action Alert:
Bullying Pasco Sheriff officer threatens to shoot student


We have a word in the UK, ‘jobsworth’ – for pompous, egotistical, inadequate, officious idiots who when given any tiny position of authority go off on an ego trip.  At least ours don’t threaten to shoot high school students who want to go to orthodontists.

A jobsworth officer with the local sheriff’s department and a jobsworth school employee named Cindy Bond were so desperate to exercise their power over the teenager trying to get to his appointment that they deliberately escalated the situation.  The teen kept his cool: while the deputy threatened to ‘f*cking shoot’ him.

The adults are in no trouble.  The student has been suspended and sent to some sort of disciplinary school.

His mother has posted the video here:  please do watch it and share it:  https://www.facebook.com/NedraJMiller/videos/10215883959397317/

The sheriff’s office has taken no action; the school has taken no action, while both adults clearly abused this young man, threatened him, and all he wanted to do was – as had been notified to the school in advance – get to an orthodontist appointment.  Read more here, but all you need to know is these two adults threatened him – and the sheriff threatened to shoot him.  https://www.businessinsider.com/florida-officer-threatens-shoot-high-school-student-dentist-appointment-2020-2?r=US&IR=T

Hello I am with One Pulse for America, the gun-law reform group started by George Takei. Our members are outraged that this happened to your son, and will be writing to those involved demanding action. No one who treats students like this belong anywhere near young people (or even people in my opinion). Best to you all; glad this is seeing the light of day and that the public are understandably outraged on your behalf. Shame on the adults involved.

Great about your basketball team, BUT WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO NEDRA MILLER’S SON? You allowed a deputy to threaten to shoot him?! and then you have the nerve to keep Cindy Bond in a job? Watch the video, apologize to the student, fire Bond, and don’t ever let that sheriff’s officer near your students again. Are you some kind of far-right organisation who thinks it’s ok to threaten to kill students? This is far from over.

that’s wonderful. Now: about your officer threatening to shoot high school students who are trying to go to pre-approved orthodontist appointments? What kind of training are you people doing? What exactly is wrong with you, and when are you going to fire that sheriff’s officer and apologise to the family: your man threatened to f*cking shoot a teenager! You’re an absolute disgrace if you don’t act.

or a tweet:

@PascoSheriff what an absolute disgrace! You’re keeping a dangerous, threatening officer on duty who threatened to f*cking shoot a high school student calmly trying to get to an orthodontist appointment! Fire him apologize to the family, or continue to look like dangerous fools.
