An intense investigative piece from Daily Wire is shedding light on controversial pro-transgender policies adopted by some public school systems.
In the public school system of Loudoun County in Virginia, a father is protesting against the new bathroom policy.
During a school board meeting, Scott Smith told officials that this ninth-grade daughter had been raped in the girl’s restroom by a boy wearing a skirt.
A liberal community activist at the meeting fired back at Smith, claiming she didn’t believe his daughter.
A police officer stepped in, grabbed Smith during the altercation, and arrested him.
“More alarming than Smith’s arrest and subsequent prosecution, however, were the county’s attempts to hide what had happened to his daughter,” Washington Examiner notes.
County’s superintendent argued that concerns about transgender policies were unreasonable.
The school system had no record of a sexual assault ever taking place in a school bathroom, officials say.
More from Washington Examiner:
Two girls, allegedly sexually assaulted in school, four months apart, by the same person. And so far, the only person to be convicted of a crime is the victim’s father.
A school policy passed following what appear to be false statements from the superintendent — a policy whose passage would have been politically impossible had Smith’s story seen the light of day.
This is truly outrageous. Loudoun County failed Smith, his daughter, and every single other parent who sends their children to its schools. School officials covered up what happened to Smith’s daughter so they could force through an unpopular and dangerous policy in the name of inclusion. When Smith tried to protest, they arrested him.
And as Rosiak notes, the local leftist prosecutor, known generally for being soft on criminals, nonetheless went out of her way to throw the book at Smith for daring to speak out about the transgender rapist who victimized his daughter.
How could Loudoun County parents possibly justify sending their children back to such schools as the ones these people run?
