So this is more evidence that Article 8/MassResistance just made up this whole story to gather further publicity, apparently judging the size of mannequins chests didn't give them enough newscopy for the month.
Recently, the media reported on a playground fight at Estabrook School in Lexington, Massachusetts, where one first grade student hit another first grade student. After the media focus on this incident, the Estabrook School principal issued a letter to parents reporting the details of this incident and the school's response, and the Superintendent of the Lexington Public Schools issued a similar report to the community and the press. Because of an allegation that the incident was "fueled and incited by adults (and yes, school officials)," the Superintendent, after having conducted his own investigation, referred the incident to the Lexington Police Department, the Middlesex District Attorney and the Department of Social Service(DSS).
The Lexington Police Department has issued the following statement, "The school department is handling this situation involving two first graders professionally and does not require action from the police." The Child Abuse Prevention office of the District Attorney and the DSS have each declined to initiate investigations, in part because the parents of the first grader who was hit have not filed a complaint, and in part because they found no basis for an investigation in the facts and circumstances reported. The School Committee and the Superintendent have both concluded that the allegation of adult involvement in and/or incitement of this minor
playground incident is entirely without merit.
Upon further investigation it looks like this whole scheme of blaming adults and gay marriage for an unrelated incident with 1 st graders is a ploy by Article 8/Massresistance to make money for themselves. Even the conservative Free Republic, which is covering this "story" questions Camenker's press release and frankly doesn't believe it:
Addition: The Globe has an article on this story in today's paper. You can read it here. Again it dispels the myth that Article 8/Massreistance is trying to put forth.
Why didn't Parker file a police report for several weeks? (He never filed a police report) Why didn't Parker take his son to a hospital to see if he had internal injuries from this "mob" that attacked him? Why did he permit his son to visit the home of the boy who presumably attacked him? Why hasn't Parker opened a complaint with Children's Services and the DA?
Why should we believe one word he says? He's permitting so much misinformation to be spread it's become an urban legend. That suits his agenda just fine. It's not a bad agenda, but using a child to further it is disgusting. And possibly dangerous to the child.
And now the World is Still Flat Award Goes to:
Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance, said he still believes Parker's son was beaten up because of his father's views. ``The kids have been incited on this," he said. ``There's a lot of anger."
