A Wyoming highschool locked down for 90 minutes on Thursday. In what kind of hazard was the varsity? According to the administration, a grave hazard.
Laramie High School received right into a standoff with Grace Smith, a 16-year-old junior, as a result of she refused to put on her masks. As a outcome, the varsity locked down, known as the police, and had Smith cuffed and arrested.
The Laramie Police Department ticketed Smith for “trespassing.” Take a glance:
Meet Grace. She’s a 16 yr previous lady who’s exhibiting extra braveness than most males proper now. She’s refusing to adjust to the masks mandate her Wyoming college board is making an attempt to power. She was fined and arrested. Here’s her arrest. She’s a hero.

There you go.
For background, Smith had returned to college on Thursday after serving a two-day suspension for not complying with Albany County School District’s masks mandate.
Smith stated her lawyer suggested her not to voluntarily go away if the varsity kicked her out once more for not sporting a masks.
“I just left [the first time],” Smith stated. “Then, after talking with our attorney, we decided to push it, so on I didn’t (leave) and took the citation for $500 and then left.”
Still, Smith didn’t count on the varsity to create an episode by locking your entire college down for over an hour. Smith instructed KPVI-TV she questioned the lockdown as a result of she wasn’t making a scene, didn’t yell, and didn’t make any threatening feedback.
Laramie High School management justified the response, saying they didn’t need to disrupt the opposite college students. So they as a substitute disrupted the school rooms with an intruder-style lockdown. These persons are in command of training. How terrifying is that?
“Everyone is safe,” the varsity’s spokesman stated.
Yes. The police received the 16-year-old lady who put the varsity’s vaccinated employees and masked college students in nice hazard of COVID. Everyone is protected now.
According to KPVI, Laramie High School might now expel Smith. Though Smith’s stance stays the identical, claiming the district’s mandate violates her constitutional rights.
“It’s because I’m growing up in a country where I’m supposed to have my God-given rights to protect, and they’re being taken away,” she added. “Everybody has the freedom to wear a mask if they choose, but I believe everybody also has the right to not wear a mask if they choose.”
Smith provides that she has confronted retaliation from academics for her stance on masks mandates. Such a thought isn’t allowed in public colleges, it seems.
Win or lose, Grace Smith, at solely 16, is braver than most of our leaders in training, company America, and Washington. The county is backward by design.
