A 16-year-old female high school student in Michigan alleges that she was assaulted by a male teacher for wearing a “Women for Trump” pin during school hours.
The Mason High School student’s mom has filed charges against the man who went ballistic after seeing the pro-President Trump pin on the girl’s shirt.
Local News affiliate WILX reported:
Paul Kato is the media technology teacher at the high school. Students say that he has not been in school since the alleged incident on Dec. 5, but Mason Schools has not confirmed that.
Earegood claims she was assaulted by Kato when he ripped her “Women For Trump” pin from her shirt.
Earegood is 16 and a junior at the school. She said Kato, started off by saying he didn’t like the pin she was wearing.
“I was just really shocked that a teacher would especially do that,” she said. “He’s talking about the ‘Women for Trump’ pin and I said, ‘that’s fine you don’t have to like it, we can have our opinions.'”
Earegood described a struggle between herself and the teacher where he tried to take the pin off her.
“He grabbed it and I pulled, I tried to push his hand away and he grabbed my shoulder,” she said. “(He) just kind of put his hand there, and then he started pulling more and more and I just started backing up.”
She said the teacher then put the pin upside down on his shirt and stated that it belonged that way.
Mason Superintendent Ronald Drzewicki wouldn’t talk to us on camera, but he released a statement that read, “Once we have a complete understanding of the situation, we will take appropriate action.”
The Earegoods filed a police report.
“I made a criminal assault and larceny report against the teacher,” said Capi Earegood, Sadie’s mother. “He had no right to put his hands on my child over a pin or anything else. The first amendment gives everyone the right to express their freedom of speech. No one should get that upset about someone wearing a political pin.”
Mason Police Chief Don Hanson confirmed his department is looking into a report of an alleged assault on Dec. 5.
The Mason School District has not confirmed with us that the allegations against Kato are true.
The dress code for Mason High School does not state anything about political paraphernalia not being allowed.
However, there is a school policy about ‘wearing’ items that would ‘cause fights,’ and many people suspect that the teacher will not be reprimanded by the school system, which many argue is increasingly leftist.
Indeed, the incident shows that the intolerance of the left simply increases the more the political agenda of the left suffers. Essentially, if leftists don’t get their way, they attack. Many have uncontrollable rage against President Trump and lash out at innocent bystanders simply exercising their First Amendment right.
