Incident at Carl Sandburg Middle School, 5/19/2012
Posted by: 2concerned ()
Date: May 21, 2012 11:48PM

On 5/19/2012, during an extra-curricular event at Carl Sandberg in Fairfax County, VA, I witnessed this gentleman in the parking lot of the school.

At first, I didn’t pay attention – he was engaging other people. But, when I came back outside, he was slowly “cruising” the parking, playing Reggae at very high volume. At one point, he stopped, got out, and danced for me while I filmed.

Back in his car, he resumed cruising, taking breaks to do what I’ll describe as “low-speed donuts” in the more crowded sections of the lot. At one point, he stopped again, and informed me that I “would not infringe his right to worship Jesus”, though I don’t believe I’d tried before then.

I called 911, and kept an eye until Police responded. Police interviewed him, determined that he did not pose a threat, but directed him to park his vehicle, and keep the music volume down.

Later, during the finale of the event, this man danced on stage to join a performing Drum Corps, danced with the professional performers, then danced off the stage. The county officials that he passed had all assumed that he was part of the even – I was one of three adults that took notice, alerted staff, and “kept an eye” until he was safely away from the children. I was not able to film this event – my batteries were spent in the parking lot, but it occurred in front of hundreds of witnesses.

Still later, he identified me in the auditorium as the person who had “called the Police.” That is why, upon leaving, and seeing him rolling toward me slowly in the parking lot, my concern was for my own child.

It only later occurred to me: The man had told both the Police and the Fairfax County staff that he had a child in the performance. If this is the case, I would reason that he was the only guardian adult for that child. I called the non-emergency number on Saturday night, but because he had been “cleared” by Police, and the incident had not been reported by County officials, there was nothing he could do. Unable to even call, to see if they were okay, I asked if he could forward it to Social Services, or some similar Department. “No,” he said. “Could I?”, I asked. “Yes, but they won’t be able to do anything, either.”

“Thanks for calling and have a pleasant evening…”

I DO NOT KNOW if this person was having a drug interaction, a medical emergency, or some other issue, but I won’t be able to rest until I know that he and the child are okay, or being looked after.

I do not want to cause anyone embarrassment. I spent quite a while deciding what to do, and I hope the individuals involved will understand and appreciate my concern for their child.

I realize that my concern seems to be an “outlier” here, but I only hope that you’ll find my judgement regarding - and handling of - this matter to be reasonable.

THANKS!

So far, I have contacted, or attempted to contact the FCPS Superintendent, the Police, and a host of others. I've gotten one reply, from the Superintendent's office that told me the matter was being "handed off", with no promise to contact me at all, or confirm that the incident was being investigated.

This person has been identified. He did, in fact, have reason to be at the school.

I'll probably never know what happened... it was clear that he was distressed in some way, but my deeper worries have been resolved.

The incident is being reviewed by Fairfax. It's my hope that if there wasn't a policy to prevent something like this from happening, or at least to report it, that there will be, by the time the review is conducted. Having two children in FCPS and SACC, I do intend to see the matter through, but policy review does take time.

My thanks to those who provided intelligent replies, and helped this matter receive the attention that I felt it needed.

Why is "the incident" being investigated and by whom and who instigated the investigation?

A dad is at his daughter's school and acting happy.

Yeah, he's a DANGER!

Crap.

I would think if he actually had a kid at the school we would have heard about this on the news..... beings that the kid would have literally died of embarrassment after their dad danced in the parking lot and on stage.

I don't intend to cause this person further embarrassment... I'm going to assume that it was an OTC interaction, myself.

Any questions probably should (and I wish you would) be directed toward the Principal at Sandburg, Mr. Terrence Yarborough. His initial evaluation seems to have concluded that this was a "non-event", but having the company of other alarmed parents at the foot of the stage tells me that I am not alone in my concern.

As I searched for help to identify this person, I reached out to most of the local news outlets, but I found only disinterest. I find this distressing - yet darkly humorous - just months after they came from all directions to investigate the report of a small child who "saw a guy in a pickup truck" at our local Elementary.

With the urgency (worry for the child, and him) resolved, the matter will need to be reviewed, and I strongly feel that it should result in the creation of a policy which would prevent something like this, or at least result in it being reported, in the future. On the other hand, if existing policies were breached, I would hope for a different result.

Thank You, Again.

Yeah this is pretty much my conclusion. He was dancing and that translates to an endangered child? I'm not sure what has programmed people to be so concerned when someone plays music, enough that they call the police, call the school, demand they be contacted with updates, demand social services be involved. Sounds like the authorities are humoring the poster. I guess seeing a black guy who is dressed well and driving a nice SUV is suspicious to people.

This guy was literally reported to police for "dancing while black." "Enjoying music while black." At an event with a drum corps. Someone needs to get a grip, get help for their paranoia, and stop harassing people by taking video of them to the point your phone/camera/whatever has batteries die.

Again, I won't go further into the details, though I'm curious what particular brand of racism causes some of you to assume that I'm not black.

Details can be had from anyone who was there, or from the Principal, or from Christine Donohue (Chief of Staff, FCPS), who will tell you that it's SACC's problem (I've yet to hear from anyone on staff there) or you can keep inventing them at your own convenience.

As for the policy:

Handling the parking lot vs. the building as two separate incidents, since the staff would have no way to know what transpired in the parking lot...

There was an unknown (to everyone in the SACC program who was near the stage) person who inserted themselves into a large group of children, causing three different Fathers enough concern to get up and move to the front of the auditorium.

My thinking is that a case like that should have a report filed. At the very least. Otherwise "two separate incidents" have no way to be tied together. We subject ourselves to strip searches at the airport for commuter flights, but we'll make no effort to keep adults from child-packed areas where they have no reason to be?

You might think that my concerns are for naught. That's why (I would hope) tapes will be collected and reviewed. The situation is nearly impossible to "describe" with accuracy.

I never indicated that this person was outwardly hostile. In fact, before the Police, the only outward "aggression" seemed to have a religious focus. Otherwise, yes, he was very happy -- the very definition of erratic. The Police were called not because of his "behavior", but because of the manner in which he was operating a motor vehicle in a busy school parking lot.

My thanks to JBass for the intelligent question. They're often a rarity here.

JBass:

I’m continuing to ponder your question, and come up with my own distilled answer.

Could I actually ask you for ideas?

If:
- Someone in the parking lot had troubled you enough to call Police
- That person then surprised you by popping up among a large group of dancing children (including your own)
- The staff thought he was part of the show
- Two other fathers were with you, expressing concern, and convincing the Staff that this “wasn’t on the program”
- 200 parents are filming, and the only clue that something is amiss is that he’s wearing jeans, and has keys swinging at the hip…

Obviously a policy would need to be even-handed, and hopefully not an onerous burden on staff, but without filing any sort of report, for example, would there be any way to know about a pattern of odd incidents, as local schools are probed? Or how about an estranged spouse… incidents like this would SURELY be documentation in domestic situations.

Then, a jump to “terrorism” might sound irrational, but for every precaution I myself take - whether it’s driving, flying, or just crossing the street - I apply twice as much to my children. How many times have I removed my shoes and had them scanned for the sake of one idiot that would’ve most likely failed, had he been given a Bic?

Helicopter? Not really… in fact, had I not been outside while my kids were preparing, I certainly would’ve been among the other parents, filming the show, never suspecting anything unusual. Because of the improvisational talents of the performers, he was integrated into the show almost seamlessly.

I haven't read anything that assumed anything about you w.r.t. skin color.

===========

A guy is dancing - later on he's on stage...dancing? He OUTRIGHT mentions the stupidity of someone calling the police on him. ALL the authorities - every one of them, says there's nothing going on here.

Yet the OP thinks it isn't the OP that's the problem.

Well, from what I remember of school in FCPS, the mere act of THINKING about driving eratically would get you in a heap of trouble.

If this guy upsets you, take a look at the 'Piggyback Bandit' out of the Northwest.
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/46412234/ns/us_news-weird_news/#.Tz0qx1wV3js

I would think there are laws on the books that they could have charged him with if they felt so inclined. Disorderly conduct, trespassing, (even if he was originally okay to be at the school, he clearly did not belong on stage at that time. I read an article about a father who got on his daughters schoolbus and was charged with 'Disturbing a school function'. Now I dont know if the school function charge is on the books here in Va. but the point is that the police can generally find something to get almost anybody, if they want to.

With that said, I dont support that type of tactic by the police BUT the schools on the otherhand can track, log and monitor all types of things that the police cant/wont. It wouldnt be too hard to create a database of non-students who have had cause to be questioned by the authorities. Ultimately, at face value, this guy had NO reason to be on the stage. I would have been irked. Its not like it was another student pulling a senior prank (Which would have gotten the student suspended FOR SURE). Its a grown man causing a disturbance at a childrens event. Odd for sure.

If this person hadnt called the police and something more serious happened you would be calling them stupid. The OP did the right thing. If the guy wants to run around and act the fool go ahead. You start running a car around a crowded parking lot of kids you get what is coming to you.

You want to drive onto the lot and park your car no big deal, you want to start doing donuts around a bunch of kids shame on you with a ticket at the least. You hit my kid you better start making tracks and hope the po po get to you before I do.

Thanks so much, to those that understand. Honestly, I'd been losing sleep all weekend -- really, from the very outset, all I wanted to do was hear that someone knew who this person was, and that he and the child were okay. Or even just that the child was at school. My second worst fear (behind harm to the child) was that he might not have had a child there, at all.

I've gotten "unofficial" support for my action from "a" Teacher's Union, as well. Yes, I feared being an "alarmist", but I'd rather suffer some embarrassment when someone who knows the entire story calls me that, than to regret doing nothing, later.

I can't possibly describe the frustration I felt in that moment. With only his lack of "costume" to give him away, and parents continuing to "roll tape", the moment was almost surreal - as if I was stuck in a horrible movie.

Again, for those that "get it", Thank You. I know many never will.

JBass: I just looped back and read your article. That one really chills my spine.

If everyone just assumes that someone else is going to take notice, or do something, nothing ever happens. I wonder how many people have sat in the dark for days, assuming that "the power company was working on it", because surely, somebody else called them.

From what I saw, I was one of only three that really put things together, and for the first moments, even I thought he was part of the show. It was only because I'd heard him tell the police that he was there with his child that I even realized what I was seeing. As soon as that "clicked", I ran to the front, by way of the hall that runs along the side of the auditorium. When I arrived, there were already two other parents, frantically trying to explain the situation to staff.

For others: I've done nothing cowardly or craven, here. I watched his maneuvers in the parking lot after I'd called Police, and I stayed until they arrived, made certain that they knew he hadn't directly threatened anyone. Wen asked me to stop filming, I did. That's why he easily identified me in the auditorium, later -- I honestly couldn't tell whether he was angry or amused at that point. Before I'd even called the Police, I asked him, directly, whether he was "okay." He turned up the music, rolled up his window, and continue rolling by, at a very low speed....

I tried to find more subtle ways to resolve this. I was forced to wait through the weekend before people returned to their offices on Monday, literally losing sleep the entire time, and frustrated that I had his license plate, but the Police were apparently prevented, by their own policies, from even giving him a call. In the end, I did what I felt I must.

I don't think I would've posted anything here, though, had I realized that I couldn't delete the article later. I've been around "FairfaxUnderground" before... while it's a great source of information, it often leaves me feeling as though I should be wearing gloves to touch the keyboard.

It would be difficult to over-exaggerate my appreciation for the other parents who understand my concern. Unfortunately, I might need their support, should the review of this continue to find that it was a "non-incident."

This entire thread reads like the "dog murdering vet" thread and the "creepy guy looking like a molester" thread.

A guy with a legitimate reason for being there is at the school, all the authorities say he's fine, ONE out-of-bounds panicking observer posts the guy is doing "slow donuts" (???) and others jump onto the thread as if the guy's a molester murdering kids by plowing them down with a huge SUV while laying down rubber with squealing tires.

BTW - I really don't know what a "slow donut" is - really, I don't.

And you are viewing the actions of the OP through hindsight. What you are claiming was innocent fun was not known by the OP until the police showed up. I would find some guy doing donuts in a school parking lot strange. Kids run around the school all the time not looking where they are going. A school parking lot requires your attention not to be some horses ass driving around in circles.

I would find a grown man jumping up into a class show strange as well. The police constantly tell you to call if you see anything unusual or suspicious. I think this guy qualifies.

OH SPARE US. The OP called the police because she saw something suspicious. That was a fine and responsible thing to do. The police came and determined he wasn't a threat, even LET HIM INTO THE SCHOOL. The situation was fully resolved at this point.

The crazy comes in what followed, demanding authorities continue to investigate, demanded involvement of child protective services (?!) and demanded followup communications.

No problem... first we consult Webster's.

demand
1. to ask for with proper authority; claim as a right
2. to ask for peremptorily or urgently
3. to call for or require as just, proper, or necessary


Requesting once and being told no and accepting the answer from the authorities is asking. Requesting over and over again, calling many different people, is demanding (see definition 2).

She called 911. Later she called police non-emergency number. Then the FCPS Superintendent, then again the police, and what the OP describes as "a host of others".

The OP wanted promises of followup ("the Superintendent's office...no promise to contact me at all, or confirm that the incident was being investigated.") (see definitions 1 and 3)

Call it what you want, but she fits the definition of demanding communications.

2concerned is, in fact, too concerned. Good for you for bringing your concerns to the school and police. A good move! They followed up and the police and principal checked it out and let the guy into the school. Sounds like determined he was okay to be there.

You then called channels 4, 5, & 7 and WTOP radio and they all decided there was no story here. Sounds like even Pat Collin passed this up. You know what? It sounds like there is no story here. Of course, this could be a huge conspiracy involving FCPS administrators, FCPD, the local TV media, and the local radio media.

Keep posting just a little information about this and that related to this "incident" and claim you are doing so to avoid embarrassing anyone. Good move to keep the grassy knoll folks salivating to to keep the real story for being told. There’s got to be a conspiracy somewhere.

We can debate all day, all nite about judgement calls, who decides what is "scary", etc. But as long as you know that this whole incident was a no big deal situation at this point, then your cool.

p.s staying on this thread and responding to yr criticizers is NOT going to help you regain any sanity, trust me :)

I've just been convinced that it's unlikely that anyone is going to come up with the right answer, unless I push.

So, I'm applying more pressure.

If I'm right, it's my only choice.

If I'm wrong, I'll live with it.

When I'm thinking about MY kids, I don't compromise.

You were fine by notifying school personnel.

Everything you've done since is for attention and to fill a deep void of some kind.

It's OK, all the neighbors and Gordon Blvd. know you are a great mother.

No... my argument is that the "normalcy bias" is worse than I thought.

Everything was fine this time... maybe it will be next time. I don't find something like this, going completely unreported, to be acceptable.

As far as I'm concerned, my children were involved.

Twice, in one day, I had reason to be concerned for the safety of my Daughter... another for my son, too, who played at Hollin Meadows on Saturday with the field gates chained shut. I'm the only person who's concerned about that, too -- the Fire Marshall wouldn't roll to look from 1 mile away! Either I'm nuts, or these are easily avoidable dangers that wouldn't cost much to fix.

Again, if I'm wrong, then nothing should change. But, I need to know that this has gotten attention, and that I don't have to BECOME a "helicopter parent."

I encourage to consider speaking to a professional if PTSD is a possibility, given whatever your history may be. Get some rest....I wish you well.

I'll try to make this my last post on the topic, unless I can get some "traction." It would be quite easy to just be quiet now, and let this die down.

Unfortunately, I can't rest that way. In recent years, I've seen armed guards patrolling schoolyards, looking for wayward smokers. But, when I call 911 from a school that's 2 (3?) miles from a station, and it takes 10 minutes for Police to arrive, I surmise that prevention is going to much more effective than hoping for a rescue.

As a couple of you have surmised, it's not about THIS incident any longer. It's about the next one. You can call me a troll, and there might even be some truth to the "hyper vigilance" idea... it seems that I'm constantly seeing dangers that others don't... but, yes, I do think about these things more than most. Until submitting my resignation last week, my family's bread was buttered by "cyber-security", and I'm actually working to design security related products now. Still, here in the real world, I suspect that Tom Ridge would approve of my concern :-)

In any event, I don't think that what happened, or how it was handled, indicate that the policies are sufficient - or maybe not enforced, I don't yet know.

I DO think it was, and is, the school's responsibility to notify parents that an "incident" occurred. It wasn't just me that thought so, and the staff led him away as soon as they were able. As I've said before, I want someone who is responsible for my children's safety to tell me that I cannot expect any better before I'll accept that. If that's the case, I would regrettably be forced to consider other options.

If/when any of the hundreds of other people present weigh in, I'll be far more likely to accept their judgement than that which I've received so far. As yet, I have no reason to think that the vast majority are aware, nor are they being told.

And no, I won't rest until I know that the policies are sufficient and enforced, or hopeless and nonredeemable. As yet, I haven't found anyone that's willing to review the matter from beginning to end and promise to keep me aprised. One of many question that I have is: do the Police even notify the school when there's an incident in the school's own parking lot?

The information would have to be shared one way (Police -> School) to protect the confidence of minors, but it strikes me as outrageous that I could be questioned, and maybe arrested in the parking lot, and none of the officials would even be notified. With more information, I believe the staff would have responded much differently. I don't think the "answer" needs to be drastic or unreasonable.

I know others asked this but the more you write the less I understand... in thirty words or less, what specific thing must happen to satisfy in your mind that the situation has been properly dealt with? This man is arrested? Warning posters with his face go up at the school? A TV station conducts a full investigation?

And I think you should consider that your actions are having an effect that opposes your motives... you want issues resolved by the authorities, but by constantly bringing up the incident with the authorities you are taking their time away from issues they are facing at that time, all for an issue and a case they consider closed. Just sayin'.

You did well calling the police, your responsibility as a concerned citizen is fulfilled, perhaps surpassed as many would just try to avoid someone they thought was acting strangely.

But also consider people act "strangely" all the time. There aren't enough police resources to spend a week investigating every report of someone acting like they are on drugs in the opinion of the observer.

Actually, that brings up another SNAFU...

If the police DID notify the school, and it's a SACC program, is it still a "whole different department" (paraphrasing Fred Ellis).

Truly, the responses I've recieved here have led me to believe that the readership would vote to drop the matter, now. Again, I appreciate the support of those who understand my position, and for those that don't, I hope you never have to.

A couple of incidents at public school events on the same day? Two or three "terrorists" could have a larger psychic impact than the towers... we'd probably never resume extra-curricular activities. I'm certain that I could begin pointing out "scary stuff" all around most of you, that hasn't been seen before now. Yes, I think of these things. In the case of my concern for the child, I simply "put it together" too late, but I'm sure I'd be in therapy for the rest of my life if I'd done nothing, and something happened later.

This has nothing to do with race, or gender -- a threat can come in any shape, and potential attackers aren't always stupid. It'll look just like something you see every day. Then, like after airplanes were hijacked, we'll find ourselves asking "why didn't we see this?" What about "probing defenses?" Had the same behavior occurred within a mile of the White House, he's still be talking his way out.

Perhaps those that don't see it should be grateful that some of us do. Or maybe I'm crazy. The jury is still out, as far as I'm concerned.

The next correspondence, from anyone, came at 9:35 this morning. By 1:00 or 2:00 yesterday, I'd resumed my "screaming."

------------


Mr. XXX,

I was asked to respond to your below email that was received on May 21, 2012. Your Facebook link was reviewed and the principal of Sandburg Middle School made an inquiry. Apparently, the event you referred to was a School Aged Child Care (SACC) event on Saturday, May 19. SACC is a program run by the Fairfax County government, not the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS). FCPS’ role in the event was simply to provide the space.

Nonetheless, the information provided to the principal, Mr. Terrence Yarborough, indicates that the individual that concerned you was, in fact, a parent of a SACC child and his participation in the dancing was welcomed by the performers.

You noted that you contacted the Fairfax County Police Department because of your concerns and that they sent a police officer out. They, according to your information, did not find a cause for further action and departed.

If you have further questions, I would suggest you contact the SACC program, http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/ofc/Sacc.htm or the Fairfax County Police Department at the Mount Vernon District Station.

At first, Fred was pretty helpful. I'd started to become ashamed of myself. Then Fred stopped answering questions, I think.

But, I'd heard back from VA DOE, too. They passed it back to the county. I have yet to hear from Steven Kerr.

------------------


Mr. XXX:

Thank you for bringing this situation to the attention of the Virginia Department of Education. While we prefer that your concern be addressed at the local level, I have forwarded your e-mail, via copy, to Mr. Steven Kerr who serves as an employment investigator at Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS). He will evaluate your information and forward it as necessary to other FCPS staff.

His direct telephone number is (571) 423-3154. If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Tom

I spoke with Mr. Yarborough's office (Principal, Sandburg). He was too busy to speak, but I was assured that they'd confirmed that it was a parent.

I didn't ask many questions after that -- though there may not be an obligation to do some, I assumed that human decency had forced someone to crack, and actually check on the guy. In fact, I have no idea if that's the case.

There were three males there, including myself, convincing staff as quickly as we could. To "rush" the guy would've at best, ruined the show for everyone. He really was a great dancer, and as I found out later, the music that the Corps was playing was native to his homeland. Only his costume "gave him away", and he'd walked right by a dozen people who never noticed that anything was out of place.

I cannot swear to this... the explanation, as I seemed to hear it from Mr. Yarborough's office, didn't make a lot of sense to me. I had been told by one person at that point that he was a parent, but when I pressed to find out how this was confirmed, I was directed to Mr. Yarborough's office. In the end, as I understand it, he had been dancing backstage, unnoticed. The reason I missed him even popping up, at first, was that he had already been there.

Really, this time it's fine. But, I think the other parents who's children were packed like sardines near the stage should be able to judge for themselves. If the consensus is that I'm nuts, I'll just hope to outlive the humiliation. If I'm right... well... I'm sure I won't be able to pursue this in anonymity -- I'd just like to warn my Wife first.

She's gonna kill me, but she's in Iowa right now with the kids. My Son's team rocked the Odyssey of the Mind State Championship, and they're doing the world finals, now!

Yeah... proud... genuine :-)

"Or grab up your kid and leave immediately if you thought your child would be hurt?"

In fact, when my Daughter and I stepped onto the asphalt out front, I saw his Silver Toyota SUV, pretty close to the far end of the lot, begin to roll toward us slowly.

Please... I can't say this enough... the guy did nothing objectively threatening, but this was after

1) I called the Police, and had hung around long enough to be sure that he was okay, and that I wasn't needed for questions
2) he "popped up" once inside the auditorium, made some comment that I didn't quite get (I have a difficult time with deep accents) which included the word "Police"
3) he then surprised EVERYONE by popping up in the middle of the finale.

Truly, that's why I do insist, demand, whatever, that someone who understands basic safety, take a look at this scenario. It's different when looked at as individual pieces, but because of my own activity (sneaking a cigarette), I saw everything from an absolutely unique vantage point. If they look, and tell me that I'm paranoid, then I can either pack my kids off to public school, or seek counseling.

This has been one of the most difficult things I've ever done... I recently resigned, I'm trying to launch a company, and during the brief moment where I thought Fark was going to pick this up, I had no idea whether I was going to get a "Hero" or "Dumbass" tag.

My submitted headline was:
Local lunatic publicly flogged for attempting to... KEEP STRANGERS OUT OF OUR SCHOOLS?

I even asked George Takai what he thought. (He never answers, but it's soothing, somehow.)

Yeah, it might look like I'm an attention whore, but I'm beyond nervous right now. A lot of people have this on tape, and unless I'm entirely "off my nut", it's going to end up on the news. I'm not sure how I'm going to handle WTOP referring to me as a local lunatic after I disparaged them for not looking at the story.

Really, I have tapes... nobody has asked to see them. I'm the only one that saw a large portion of any of it, except for several people who I know he tried to convert.

Saturday was a really bizarre day for me. And the lack of sleep since then hasn't made the following ones much better.

Sorry... lost my train of thought. As I said, I'm pretty tired.

Anyway, when we stepped onto the lot, he started rolling, and I told my Daughter: "I just unlocked the car. Don't look back, just go ahead, get in, and lock it."

Murphy could've told you what came next. She stops dead, turns around, and starts scanning to see what's going on.

But he kept rolling slowly, and I never looked back, because I was afraid to make eye contact -- I was just trying to watch the vehicle by way of reflections on other cars.

I realize that this was completely based on my own "fear" -- but none of it is "racist", since I'd feel the same about anyone who acted like that, life-long Fairfax resident, or otherwise. But, my fear did stop me for looking.

It wasn't until much later on Saturday that it clicked: there was a child somewhere, or there wasn't. Either answer could have some horrible implications, and perhaps sleep deprivation and my imagination have just been running free since then.

Again, I'd like an "expert opinion" before I decide what comes next.

My guess is that the cop who was hot, after talking with the subject and found that he was not drunk or high so she didn't arrest him. Ran the subject thru NCIC and found that he was not wanted or a sex offender and told him to have a nice day and quit driving like a fool. I bet that she had to document the incident.

I guess we will start Id'ing subjects as they enter to make sure they are related to someone involved in the program. My guess is who ever was in charge of the event did not make a stink or you would have talked with them by now.

I missed this (and I'm not accustomed to the "OP" thing):
"What is the trigger that sets your mind at ease that all is okay?"

I suppose that's vague. Most security is a compromise between safety, and getting anything done... in this case, off the top of my head...

1) Do the Police notify the school when there's an incident in the parking lot?
(Think of a lurking parent, getting chased off more than once)
2) Do the Schools talk to each other (if the same guy drew attention in several places, would anyone notice a pattern?)
3) If the Police DID notify FCPS, would FCPS notify SACC? (Apparently, it's a "whole different department.")
4) Were there procedures in place, such as reporting, that were not followed???

Going beyond that, I can't really answer the question. When I did training, we'd refer to the "Orange Jumpsuit Test." In other words, do you think whatever you're doing might land you in one? But the relevant test here would actually be the "sleep test": "When all is said and done, are you comfortable enough to sleep?"

And frankly, based on what happened, I'm not.

Well apparently you can't sleep after this since you able to answer after every other person posts. I doubt that the police have the time to tell the schools when something happens on their grounds. My bet is that they only tell the schools when someone from the school system is involved in a police incident. The school security may keep track of those events but who knows. Sounds like you need to run for office. By the look of your last post your spending more money then the county has and creating more paperwork and emails that won't get read.

Quite possibly... but I'm not about to rest my child's safety on the opinion of a person who can't even decipher the clues about my gender.

I want the attention of someone who is paid to think about these things. Call it a demand if you'd like.

I really don't see that I have a choice... the "court of public opinion" seems to be in session, and to the best of my knowledge, not a single person who has leveled criticism has bothered to pick up the phone and verify one word of any of this.

Why isn't it on WTOP?

Because they don't think you care.

"Yeah, it happened RIGHT IN FRONT OF 200+ PEOPLE, many of whom were treated to his brand of gospel on the way into the building and/or witnessed his erratic behavior and we didn't mention it. Or investigate it. This time. Because it turned out okay. This time.

Sorry... I DO CARE.

If you don't get it now, maybe you'll be grateful when you do.

My intention isn't to sound "sexist", but....

The more I think about this, the more trouble I'm have picturing a woman, standing in the open, engaging him directly, and keeping an eye until the Police arrive.

No... I do happen to be larger and stronger than most. That sometimes leaves me feeling obligated to help others where many just "don't get involved" -- that was the general rule on Saturday. I suspect that I have a touch of an "anti-bully complex", but when I see a unique opportunity to help others, I can't just sit back and hope that someone else might be willing and able to take on the responsibility. When I see things SO differently, I don't see how I could possibly just sit back, and hope that people who're attempting to break the story into little passable bucks come up with the right conclusion.

Between the self-victimizing "anti-snitch" culture, and the fear that trying to do the right thing will lead to unwanted attention, I wonder, how many people could really deal with this site? Though childish, it quickly becomes tempting to roll in the mud with the rest of the pen.

And getting this done quietly?

Been there.

Done that.

Didn't work.

Escalation... it continues.

Thinking more... (better rested today, but not much.)

I want to put this out for consideration while I'm about as "fresh" as I'm likely to be today:

I am not having fun with this.

As far as I know, my Wife is going to come up to find me strung from a tree in the front yard, and our home burnt to the ground.

But... that leads me to conclude: if I don't do it, NOBODY ELSE WILL.

I'm continuing not for attention, but because this is actually more "comfortable" to me than doing nothing would be.

I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE ANY SUPPORT THAT I CAN GET.

I'm hoping there won't be a lot more to respond to, really. Short of posting the tape, or his plate, I think I've posted just about all that might be helpful to anyone.

Hopefully, I'll find the wisdom to apply the minimum force needed to have this REALLY LOOKED AT. That's all I want.

But please, leave this guy alone. I never meant to call attention to his situation. Maybe there never was a "situation"... perhaps he's just a very gregarious/confrontational person. It's not about him, anymore.

Maybe he just hadn't been sleeping well, either.

I couldn’t stop chuckling about something last night, which was unfortunate since I was trying to put it out of my mind long enough to sleep:

“Nobody talks like that.”

That’s not true. I’ve met someone. I hate to say it, but it’s creepy. That’s where context comes in to play again. I worked with the guy for a few hours, and it was “creepy.” Had he randomly engaged me in a parking lot, I would’ve been on alert.

But no, I hope I don’t sound anything like this. I suppose I got carried away with my NVCC education, but I find that even in the digital age, words and ideas can have more power than anything.

But I’ve spent my whole life “having ideas,” not acting, and regretting. Like the housing crash – I swear I called that one, right on the money. A lot of people who know my deeper political and economic views might even consider me radical, but we didn’t follow through on my plan to “dump” the house, and I’ve regretted it ever since. We actually took it off of the market so that I could finish my two-year degree, which took me twelve years, in total.

Any time you make a move like that, though, risk is required. You have to at least KNOW your risks before you can make an intelligent decision.

Since FCPS and SACC are “completely different departments,” would the Principal know about ANY of this if I hadn’t kept pounding on day 3?

I don’t know, but I don’t think it should be difficult to get answers.

I mean, really – people are upset because I BEGGED a lot of people to forward this to that one person, who I can yell at if something goes wrong, who will tell me exactly what was supposed to happen, and whether it happened. Again, I’m not proud of the cajoling that I did. I’d like to hide behind sleep loss to excuse it.

But anyway, tell me who this person is, and I’ll continue it with them. For a moment or two yesterday, I thought that guy might be Fred. Then I thought it might be the guy who never contacted me. By then, I’d realized that I couldn’t take this post down. That’s another regret, but regrets are okay, as long as they’re distilled into something you can act on. That’s where I’m at. I’ve certainly learned something here, and I’m sure I don’t have much choice about whatever I’m about to learn.

But please… tell me who the person is. One name. Have him tell me that he will see it through, give me an idea of when he’ll get back to me, and then I’ll shut up.

Well, really, that’s not true. I’m realizing that I probably should’ve started with my kids’ Elementary, but that wasn’t even an option until Monday, and I was pretty fried, by then.

Oh, did I mention that I’m apt to ramble?

When one sees someone acting this erratically, it's one's responsibility to alert authorities. OP did exactly what she should have done. This was not 'happy' behavior; this was unbalanced behavior, plain and simple. You all should be glad there are citizens out there like OP who are willing to put themselves out to look after the welfare of our citizens. The same people who are giving OP crap would not hesitate to use the same resources had they, themselves felt in danger. That's utter hypocrisy.

So far the OP has said he is crazy, has threatened to hang himself and burn his house down due to this, and has posted a couple times of unspecified "further action". I think the cops need to maybe take a look at the OP, not the dancing guy.

I was at this event last Sat. with my children as well. I didn't see this gentleman previously (e.g., parking lot encounter prior to the show) but my spouse and I gave eachother "huh?" looks when he showed up on stage at the end of the performance with the Malcolm X dancers, dancing, clearly out of place. No one seemed alarmed, and honestly, until I stumbled over this thread this a.m., I didn't give it another thought. I do thank you for your vigilance and concern. I don't think you're crazy. I suggest you contact, if you haven't already, the Director of the FFX County Office for Children, Anne-Marie Twohie and the Director of the county's SACC Program, Anne Goldstein, with your concerns and a request for an explanation/preventive plan for future events. I'd apprecaite knowing if they don't respond. SACC has a Parent Advisory Council that this issue can be brought to by the co-chairs (for addressing/explanation by SACC/Office for Children management) as well.

At this point, I'm half-wondering if I can get my Wife, from Iowa, to get a sign on the news:

"Fairfax County Makes Me Dance With Erratic Strangers"

Really... I thought I was actually starting to get somewhere. My last round get a response from Janet Molan, at 8:54. It said "Thank you."

I guess I was an optimist, and I thought someone was going to contact me. Relaxing for a moment, I fell asleep, and now three more hours are gone.

This isn't like "John Q." or anything. I was in a whistleblower-type situation once, and it was one of the toughest times of my life. I'd loved the job until then, but I started spending less "remote" time, and couldn't stand what I was watching this guy do to my coworkers.

Well, by the time it was said and done, I'd been prescribed seroquel (I got off of it on day 3 because of HORRIBLE nightmares), and probably come pretty close to a nervous breakdown. Really, finding out what a "anxiety attacks" were, and delving a little deeper into Taoism probably saved my life.

So know: I didn't go into this expecting a cakewalk, though I'll admit that I never imagined it would be as tough as it's become, already.

Oh so someone calls you and you refuse to give info. Good lord I'd stop calling you too, what a waste of time. Sounds like you have a lot of time on your hands wondering how you are going to burn yourself up or hang yourself, why not type out a paragraph summarizing what happened and you can read it over the phone to whoever asks?

Dude, I passed judgement in your favor. You told a story about a guy who was dancing at a school play and managed to turn it into a 100+ post thread, and without I might add, being a complete asshole about it.

Go to Google, Yahoo, all your other favorites, and "search" for terms like:

"Carl Sandburg"
"Fairfax County"
"Virginia Department of Eduction"

And when a link to this article comes up, click it.

Because I don't like your thread, and find it to be a pathetic waste of time, thereby sucking, you question my intelligence. Brilliant.

I think it's more appropriate to question your own.

This thread does suck. Have a nice day. :-)

I'm sure everyone involved with Fairfax is calling it a night. It would be terrible if they had to stay late, or something.

Today, I got one call from Fred's office and she wouldn't READ my "report" and call me back.

I got one person asking if I was home, with no further attempt at contact. But that's just my childrens' Elementary School... that's a "whole different department" from SACC.

Funny thing is: I thought there was SOME chain of responsibility.

Then there was the guy from the Child thing. I'll tell you who that was later, I think.

Does anyone know the law, here, with respect to audio?

He was clearly "performing" for me on my first clip.

He saw me filming him on the second (being interviewed by Police), and asked me to stop filming, because (I think) I wasn't his friend anymore.

I think the implied consent is there?

I'm thinking that I might be able to clip the audio to give some of you a better understanding of the context, without destroying an innocent.

So far, I've done EVERYTHING I can think of, including some stuff I thought I'd never do, just hoping to get someone at the County to at least look at my tape. I would've gladly driven it out, and waited for an answer.

But, on day 5, my nerves are shot. With any luck, I'll either be vindicated or institutionalized by the time my Wife and Kids get back.

Several of you have called me a "Troll"... whatever.

Again, I have a unique oppurtunity to do something.

If my Wife & Kids weren't gone, I might not have the guts (or insanity) to have done anything remotely approaching this, so let's get it over with before I get back.

In what might be an absolutely unprecedented move in this often slimy forum, I'm going to spell it out, a second time.

If anyone is coming with pitchforks tonight, know that I've got some beer on ice, the kids are gone, and the garage is wired for sound.

-Strydyr (on Facebook)

I'd hoped to be judged anonymously, at first, on the content of my words, but if it needs to be my resume, then have a look.

You didn't know it until now, but I promise that some tiny portion of your taxes were given to me.

You payed me to be "frightened" for you.

Am I an alarmist?

And, what's your beer preference?

I have integrity. I'm not hiding.

Again, it's a unique opportunity. If I hadn't resigned two weeks ago, I could not possibly AFFORD to do this.

Well, maybe not after the fact, if something actually goes wrong.... then they'll just blame each other because NONE OF THEM SEEM TO KNOW WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT, NOR ARE THEY INTERESTED IN MAKING THE POLICY KNOWN.

Thumbing back through all of this, trying to find some of the more insightful quotes that each "players" have written:

Principal Yarborough:
-----------------------------------

MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY: N/A

-----------------------------------
Fred Ellis,
Director, OFFICE OF SAFETY AND SECURITY, FCPS:
-----------------------------------
TUESDAY:"Nonetheless, the information provided to the principal, Mr. Terrence Yarborough, indicates that the individual that concerned you was, in fact, a parent of a SACC child and his participation in the dancing was welcomed by the performers."

TUESDAY:"FCPS’ role in the event was simply to provide the space."

TUESDAY:"If you have further questions, I would suggest you contact the SACC program, http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/ofc/Sacc.htm or the Fairfax County Police Department at the Mount Vernon District Station"

(done and done)

-----------------------------------
Christine Donohoe: Chief of Staff, Superintendent's Office, FCPS
-----------------------------------
MONDAY: "I have sent your email off to our security staff, the principal and the cluster. They will look into the matter for you."


-----------------------------------
Thomas Broyles: Dir. Business and Risk Management, Virginia DOE
-----------------------------------
TUESDAY: . While we prefer that your concern be addressed at the local level, I have forwarded your e-mail, via copy, to Mr. Steven Kerr who serves as an employment investigator at Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS).


-----------------------------------
Steven Kerr, Employment Investigator, FCPS
-----------------------------------
Honestly, this name made no sense to me.

But, that's ok: I never heard from him, or anyone else.

Are they worried that Principal Yarborough is using a fake resume? I suppose it's possible....

Employment Investigator...

That brought up an interesting question.

Since FCPS and SACC are "whole different departments," can anyone at FCPS assure me that background checks have been done on SACC staff?

And why didn't I think to ask that before now?

I guess it would've been pointless. I had a job, and apparently, I would never have even found out who to ask.

And what stopped the Employment Investigator from calling?

I've got a hunch that someone's in CYOA mode.

Those are the WORST people. When a mistake is made, or something isn't done well, fine -- learn from it!

But the ones that hide the problems and pass the bucks? They're literally dangerous... they'll sacrifice the actual product for the sake of looking good.

I was in a situation very recently, on site, where someone (it seems) was taking credit for my work. I had my head down, and I was doing stuff he had no clue how to do: writing reports, and custom "rules."

So, I'm handing the stuff over to the guy, and he's "interfacing" with the "sub-client." And I thought everything was fine.

I should've caught on when I realized I was getting NO work from him on "billable" projects.

I'd like to explain to Mr. Yarborough, since I half expect to hear from his lawyer today:

Your office said that everything was okay. You had no interest in pursuing this, but THIS IS YOUR BUILDING

I don't care if SACC is a "whole different department." The fact that you seem to feel no personal responsibility for the safety of children in your own hallway tells me that you're unsuited to be watching ANYONE's children.

He apologized for the loony-tunes couple of days, and he apologized to one individual of many he accused of stonewalling. No apologies to us for trying to tell him his actions were working against his own motivations.

Also noted was no apology to the individual he accused of threatening his child when this individual very likely had no intention of hurting anyone at all. At worst the guy may have tried to intimidate the OP, quite possibly because the OP's openly taking video and calling police on him is itself intimidation.

In other words, the OP quite possibly escalated a situation that led the guy to take further odd steps like dancing inside the school during the production. No apologies for that either.

No explanation still for why "my child was in peril, if you are a parent don't you know what it is like to have your child in peril ?!" but behavior equated to "I didn't want to interrupt a production of drummers because I'd look odd. Oh wait I guess that means either a) I don't want to protect my children, or b) I didn't REALLY think my child was in imminent danger or "peril".

Nonetheless it seems the OP sees some error in his approach and is sorry for what happened, time to let the thread go away.

I did attempt to apologize to anyone here that I offended, indirectly, though I apparently failed.

I hope you can understand that it was never my intention to put this person under the spotlight any more than I could possibly avoid. I saw and filmed things that no other person has been willing to review -- I no longer wish them to, and I'll be destroying them.

My fear was the scenario. He was dancing backstage, neither his presence nor identity known to anyone; but his behavior was extremely erratic.

Yes, I'm ashamed for not having listened to several people regarding my approach. Toward the end, I was trying all approaches at once, including a continuation of the phone calls and emails I'd begun with.

But, by my own definition of integrity, I'm willing to face that shame, and outside of this particular forum, where I've reluctantly exposed this man, I do not intend to mention his involvement again. I assure you, if you review what happened, you'll understand that my motivations were in no way "racially" motivated.

If anyone would like to meet with me, I'm willing to arrange it. In person, by phone.... just please let me know whether I should put some beer on ice, or whether my Wife & Children need to sleep elsewhere tonight.

To ALL: I'm truly sorry. I hope that you'll agree that the final outcome was of some good.

You'll find that here: https://www.facebook.com/strydyr/posts/421056074583443

Sincerely,
Scott Lehman

You can contact me on Facebook, if you'd like.

I've been real from the very first. It was after day 2 or three of nightmares and insomnia that the reality began to slip.

I called the cops, I stayed there and waited for the Police. I remained to be certain that the Police knew that he had not directly threatened anyone. I never even hid -- he knew that I'd called the Police, though I hoped that he understood it to be as much out of concern "for" him as it was "about" him. But any parent who saw what happened in the parking lot would have done the same, I'm certain.

Many, I know, would've made the call had he been preaching the Muslim word instead of Jesus. Please believe that I had objective reason to be very worried.

I get it, and though you haven't wronged me personally in retrospect re-reading your note I think you have indeed demonstrated complete remorse and everyone should move on. For what it is worth I completely forgive you though I only speak for myself.

In my opinion this website is extremely repulsive. So many people just talking trash about one another, having no remorse or proof of the allegations being made. This site is filled with people who have nothing better to do than hurt other from behind a computer screen. Why this should be a website about helping others and passing information around a community not a war zone where people put other people on trial and say horrible things about people. This is no better than cyber bullying except the anonymous names prevent you form having to reveal who they are. This is like a middle school where people do nothing but start rumors about others to hurt peoples feelings.

I hope that you read this message and think, about your future activity and really only present information that is factual and helpful to others in the northern Virginia area. Put yourself in the person your about to hurt before you post your message.

school where he came into conflict with the school's principal Terrence Yarborough regarding a misunderstanding of some
sort with another parent at the school. (Mr. Lehman reported a black parent "dancing" at the school and became concerned).
After which, Mr. Lehman was told by the principal and his staff that the black male "dancing" was in fact another parent, and
was NOT a security concern. Mr. Lehman then began posting comments online in an erratic manner criticizing that decision.
His comments were read by school faculty and as result of their quantity and content the school was put on lock down.
It's my opinion that this individual is a danger to himself and others (see links below to read for yourself).

The truth is, I like 99% of your opinions.

Otherwise, I would've already crushed you.

You're likely to get killed when Carolyn's family finds out. I don't want that.

Not the delivery.

If you haven't done anything outwardly hateful... if I believe you really are that stupid, I'll be nice.

Dunno who Carolyn is................but I'm betting her friends and family wouldn't shit on her memory by harming some random internet person in her name. Normal ppl dont act that way, yo.

And of COURSE I'm Caleb - wasnt too hard to throw you off the trail LoLz! I've been working with Terrance, , SACC, FCPD, The Patch, Wooodson, the FBI, your wife, Aunt Betty, and the POTUS to all try and get you banned from Sandburg Middle School. Dept of the Navy has been working on this mission at least 4 years now dontcha know :)

So, if ANY of this is infact true, why is it that this lunatic is allowed to remain free?

Let's take a closer, but simple look.

It's been documented above that he is bi-polar, off his medication and that he may be using narcotics. Not sure of the source of this information, but scary stuff.

He caused a problem at a local school due to his delusions.

He has since goone on a public forum and further caused harm by his harassment.

He is threatening other poeple and has proven to far gone to understand his own threats.

Lastly, at this time, he has not been stopped.

Obviously, the police are watching him, waiting for him to act out so that they can arrest him.

With all the attention this man (and I use the term "man" very loosely here) has drawn to himself fr4om the public, there is no way authorities will let this psychopathic scumbag cause anyone any phsyical harm. They are probably forced to wait it out, watch him and then finally arrest the guy once he makes his move. Whatever move that may be.

Hopefully, for his well being and others, he gets the professional help he needs before this goes further. If it does go further, I believe the police will take him down before he gets the chance to hurt someone or himself.

Allow me to provide some insight.

According to Facebook posts he later hid/took down, apparently he knows the people involved in the Braddock/Twinbrook motorcycle accident. Carolyn is one of the accident victims who lived.

When this whole dancing guy thing started, these Facebook friends of Scott expressed dissatisfaction with how the Twinbrook incident was discussed on FairfaxUnderground during the brief time his Facebook posts on this were public (after he pointed us readers there, then called us fools and idiots for not picking up on it. I did, which is how I know the above).

What I believe Scott is saying is that he has quotes from you in those threads saying unfavorable things about the victims or the circumstances, and that if those people had your identity (which he will provide) then you should be fearful of the retribution they will visit on you for comments regarding the Twinbrook incident.

In other words, his motivation in trying to out you is so that others will visit physical violence on you in retribution for comments posted here on the incident.

------------------------------------------------------------


That is a death threat, knowingly giving information to others who he believes will react with deadly violence if they had the information. There is no "ohh, that was a cartoon cat with the gun!" backpedaling, he clearly states his belief that a known outcome of his effort will be someone being hurt or killed.


To any of Scott's friends reading this: I suggest you inform your friend that threatening people here on your behalf isn't in your interest. Scott has expressed his belief that if he provides personal information on this person he suspects is behind his troubles that you, those friends or family and perhaps victims themselves of that terrible incident, will find that person and hurt or kill him/her.

Scott is exhibiting erratic, deranged behavior (just look at the times he posts... all day and all night), and is posting information about people who have nothing to do with this. If you are in fact the type of people who will in fact hurt or kill, please know that Scott's "computer" skill level prevented him from circumventing a very simple trick in his first thread that prevented him from posting. His "skills" in finding identities of people are not credible, and your actions based on his recommendations will not be based on facts or anything real.

I stand by anything said on that thread. Both cagers and bikers (and cyclists and pedestrians) ALL need to watch for one another.
Anywho, Death threats are all fun and everything, but I was getting them 5 times a day this last year so it's really nothing new and HOLY SHIT!!!!!

HOLY SHIT!!

DO YOU PEOPLE REALIZE THAT THIS GUY WAS TARGETING THIS CALEB GUY FOR DEATH LAST NIGHT!! SOME GUY WHO KNOWS SHIT ABOUT THIS WAS GETTING TARGETED FOR FUCKING DEATH!!!! All cause 2Con thinks "Gordon Blvd" is the booga-man.............

He was distressed becuase some whack-job is filming him at his child's school. You talk constantly about being a concerned parent and doing all these things to protect your child from others. Has it occurred to you for even one instant how your behavior is being perceived by the other parents. There are definately threats to the children and the other parents at this school. The perpetrator is YOU. Check your aggressions and attitude of other parents, nevermind what this man's situation is. Spend a little more time worrying about the parent YOU are being and never mind the other parents. You having a child of your own should be utterly embarrassed with your conduct regarding trying to remove another child from their family and attempt to have their parents arrested. If you were half as concerned about the event your child is in rather that the parents in the parking lot maybe you would have a nice home video of your child at teh event. Instead you have a video of another parent dancing and a restraining order to show for it. Perhaps things around you wouldnt be so suspicious if you stop huffing bath salts.

How well can they shoot?

Because of where he lives, I wouldn't take a long range shot so I would go with a .300blk round instead of the traditional .308. Now if Im a SWAT equivalent, then I would not go with a .300 AR, but maybe a Savage 10fp action in a McMillan precision bedded stock. With the right glass, that should give me 1/4 MOA under 300yards. For this shot, I would also not go suppressed as there is no advantage gained from going quiet.

So, hypothetically assuming that gear loadout, and proper training, yes, I would take the bet that any shot attempted would result in pink mist.


My understanding is that the FFX boys are very good.

Well, I knew this would get "bumped" since I made an appearance tonight.

First: I DO NOT CARE IF ANYONE LIKES ME.

I care about my family, and the safety of the kids at Fairfax County Schools.

Second: IT WAS NEVER ABOUT "THIS GUY"

Everyone wants to take it all out of context (Fred Ellis even took it so far as to portray me as being racially-motivated), which is fine, but I was worried about what the situation said about security. This was before the Newtown incident, which was inevitable, and I wanted to know that SOME thought was being given to security at FCPS.

The guy was behaving erratically and dangerously in the parking lot. The Police told him he needed to stop, and either leave or go inside. He went inside and popped up two hours later where nobody expected him to be. I have no problem with HIM... I have a problem with the situation, and how it might've played out the next time, with a different erratic and possibly dangerous adult. The guy had been screaming about religion in front of the school -- if he'd been Muslim instead of Christian, I'm sure that half of the idiots who post here would've called the Police long before I observed his dangerous behavior in the parking lot.

Since this incident, changes were made. SACC no longer allows unknown adults to mix freely with the kids. If they can't provide any sort of security, they don't hold an event. Yes, there was a significant downside last year, since there were no events to which adults were invited, but I'll make that trade-off if it'll keep my kids safer.

And yes, it cost me a lot. If I had it to do over, I'd do it all differently, and I'd put a lot less trust in the people who I trusted before. I was given a lot of bad information from people here, and from people in my real life. I was lied to, I was manipulated, and I was discredited by a family member who's only interest seems to be the fear that I'll spill her "deep, dark" secret.

During this, I was given legitimate reason to be frightened, and I was disparaged at every turn. I had a "journalist" neighbor posting twisted versions of conversations that she picked up second-hand, which had me truly paranoid about how they were getting the information.

But, changes needed to be made, and if FCPS can use the pathetic excuse that I was the crazy/dangerous person that they're trying to protect children from, then that's something I'll just have to live with. My motivation never deviated from keeping my family (and the other kids, by proxy) safe. Again, yes, I made mistakes.

At any rate, I do believe that the children who attend SACC today are safer than they were a year ago. If "Newtown" had happened here, and I'd done nothing when I saw the problem, I doubt that I could live with myself now. I still have Police-inspired nightmares. I'll always have "trust issues". But, I did the best that I could, given the spiraling issues of fear and sleep-deprivation in the face of death-threats that I was getting at the time. There are scars that I'll wear for life, and I'll do so quietly, but secure in the knowledge that I did SOMETHING.

I did the best that I could, and I'm willing to own up to my mistakes.

BTW, I will "re-charge" Principal Yarborough with "incompetence".

Please negate all of the apologies that I previously posted.

He (as I now have reason to believe) was directed by Fred Ellis to not speak with me... this was immediately after Fred Ellis refered me to Principal Yarborough for more information.

I called the school almost every day for two weeks (after an extended "break") before someone at that office told me that Terrence was directed to not speak with me. The direction came (I was told) from Fred Ellis.

If these guys had just played-it-straight instead of playing games, I'm sure things would've been MUCH more simple.

All I ever wanted was answers. Principal Yarborough (per Fred Ellis) said there was no issue, so no investigation/answer was warranted. Terrrence Yarborough had no responsibility for the issue (FCPS disavows SACC) and had no direct knowledge of the incident (per Fred Ellis), so I still wonder how it makes sense to anyone that someone who isn't resposible can declare anything to be a non-incident?

I know for a fact that Fred Ellis has taken my statements out of context, and given his history as a FCPD employee, he has full knowledge of how the system can be manipulated.

So, we ended up with increased security at a school that I had no interest in visiting, a SWAT-type situation at my house, and absolutely no answers with regard to the real situation.

In the end, they made changes that were overdue in the first place. I cannot explain the interim. But, these are your tax dollars

By the time I'd be able to answer that question, I'll probably be sober, and at a loss for an explanation.

When you jump back into something a year later, armed with a ton of knowledge that you didn't have before, you feel compelled...

I doubt I'll touch this thread again after tonight.

I'll always be curious about who "Megg" was, though I suspect that Sharon knows.

I didn't see this at first.

You responded twice, and complained about me being "purposeful"?

I don't get it.

Yes, I've had an agenda from the very first post. It hasn't been a secret.

Actually, I guess I don't have an agenda now. FCPS/SACC has made changes, and I'm happy with them.

FFXU thinks I'm insane, and I'm okay with that.

So, what's your point?

I don't think "reading" is one of your skills, anyway.

I really wish someone from FFX county PD would just shoot you in the ass. God I would pay good money to see that.

Not just that, but because the brother was dancing and singing. Good thing Scott wasn't watching a Jay-Z video or he would have the whole SWAT team out there.

2concerned called because of what the guy was doing with his car in the school parking lot during an event.

The dancing came later.

I think the guy kept his clothes on the whole time, though.
