California Democrats Pass New Bill That Will Prevent Schools From Reporting Attacks And Threats By Minority Students

Democrats are slowly destroying the United States of America with their progressive and reckless policies. While they have been busy pushing gun control because of the Uvalde, Texas shooting at Robb Elementary, they are also taking away protections for school teachers.

A new bill has been passed by the California State Senate, which allows schools to not report any threats or attacks against school officials and employees to law enforcement.

State Sen. Steven Bradford (D-Los Angeles) introduced the bill – SB 1273 – which breezed through and passed two days after the Uvalde school shooting, which claimed the lives of nineteen students and two teachers.

SB 1273 repeals a provision of an existing law that requires that “whenever any employee of a school district or county superintendent of schools is attacked, assaulted, or physically threatened by any pupil, the employee and any person under whose direction or supervision the employee is employed who has knowledge of the incident are required to promptly report the incident to specified law enforcement authorities.” 

Reports to law enforcement would become voluntary under the new bill.

Of course, Democrats would rather push for gun control instead of increasing law enforcement presence at schools, because apparently it causes harm to minority students.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has praised the Bradford bill as promoting racial “equity”: “Once students make contact with law enforcement, they are less likely to graduate high school and more likely to wind up in jail or prison. These harms fall disproportionately on students from marginalized groups: Black, Indigenous, and Latinx students, as well as students with disabilities, are disproportionately referred to law enforcement, cited, and arrested.”

The bill will allegedly “protect students from unnecessary interactions with law enforcement.”

Sen. Bradford told the Daily Caller:

“Our existing system has led to alarming disparities in the type of students who are most likely to suffer these harms. Black students, Latinx students, students of color, and students with disabilities are disproportionately referred to law enforcement, cited, and arrested.”

One Democrat pushed back against the bill, however, and during a speech she delivered on the Senate floor, State Sen. Melissa Melendez (D-Lake Elsinore) denounced the bill and compared it to the 2018 Parkland, Florida, mass school shooting.

The shooter benefitted from the Obama administration’s PROMISE program, which discouraged reporting of attacks and assaults to law enforcement, especially if they were minority students.

“You are asking for a repeat of [Marjorie] Stoneman Douglas [High School] across the State of California.” Said Melendez in a statement.

“I can’t believe that just two days after the heartbreaking events in Texas, the State Senate would pass a measure making our children less safe at school. … Requiring teachers to report threats of violence in the classroom may be the only warning law enforcement has to prevent a future violent attack.”

“Threats of violence deserve the attention of law enforcement. …  Parents should feel safe sending their kids to school. Eliminating the mandatory reporting requirement, by passing SB 1273, makes our schools more susceptible to a repeat of what happened in Texas – and that is unacceptable.”

The bill will now move to a vote in the State Assembly, if successful it will then go to Governor Gavin Newsome for signature.

  1. Pushing gun control because a bunch of Biden’s mexicans were killed by another one of Biden’s mexicans, how sick is this. Want to bet most of the parents of these killed we not even legal !!

  2. There is proof everywhere that the more GOOD guys/gals with guns prevents large numbers of violent actions. Chicago, some of the most restrictive gun laws in the land, has nearly the highest number of violent crimes in the entire country. Of course, if government refuses to protect our children, WE will. I am good knowing that here in Tennessee, I do not need to worry about such idiotic notions for a while yet. And I actively work to prevent it by voting smart at ALL levels of elections. Also, my grandkids live in relatively reasonable areas, and are a bit safer than in large, violent democrat run cities. Just my facts.

    I am unsure why school districts are not fighting to get some of the BILLIONS the government has, obviously, to hire armed security with specialized training to protect our children. Should it be necessary in my city, I will be first in line to do that. I have extensive training already, and would welcome the opportunity to further protect the children, especially since they are the only future we have as a society. There are thousands, hundreds of thousands, in the country just like me.

    Believe me, everyone in our country wants people just like me armed, and ready, in order to defend our kids, elderly, weaker populations from the criminal elements our government refuses to do much of anything to remove and punish for their transgressions. Remember, THE ONLY THING STOPPING A BAD GUY WITH A GUN IS A GOOD GUY WITH A GUN. Pretty simple!!

  3. Apparently commifornia doesn’t care about murdering children, they want to eliminate guns from rational legitimate gun owners so they can’t act against the communist politicians in the state!

  4. If the idiotic government we have now manages to outlaw guns the only people getting rich will be the cartels because citizens will buy unregistered weapons from the cartels in order to defend themselves. There will be more criminals in the U. S. than there ever have been because citizens will be buying illegal weapons, therefore making them criminals. Biden will have to overlook the purchases just like he overlooks the criminals crossing our borders illegally. Not that it really matters because sooner or later the 25th Amendment will have to be enacted because anyone with a brain knows Joe Biden is mentally incompetent to be the president of anything, much less the U. S.
