I’m all for equal rights. I don’t care if you’re tall, short, smart, dumb, gay, straight, black, white, or a rainbow of fruit flavors. The only person that doesn’t deserve equal rights is a criminal.
When you break the law, you give up your protections and your freedoms. Children learn this in kindergarten. Thus, it’s not a very complex idea. You know what other idea is pretty simple? The premise that all kids should be safe at school.
It’s amazing just how many things parents have to worry about. Reading levels, school supplies, competent teachers, over-crowded classrooms- these are the everyday concerns. Then there are the chances of school shootings, pedophiles disguised as school employees, bullying, and shockingly, rape in the bathroom. These are the things we should never have to think about.
Unfortunately, that’s not the way life goes. Now, not only are students raped on campus, but schools are so afraid of the optics regarding LGBTQ, they’re willing to cover up serious crimes.
At least that’s what happened to one Virginia student, and her dad isn’t taking it lying down. In fact, he went viral after being dragged out of a Louden County School Board meeting.
Scott Smith was outraged with his 15-year-old daughter was raped by a 14-year-old trans boy in the girls’ bathroom at Stone Bridge High School. Not only is the crime itself viscous, and traumatic, but the school tried to play it off as “no big deal.”
In fact, school officials didn’t even use the word “rape.” Instead, they called it a “physical altercation” in the restroom. Like a little fight over lip gloss? A simple push and shove between girls?
Of course, when he arrived at the school, Smith learned the horrific truth. Not only was his daughter brutally raped, but the school hoped the situation could be handled “in house.” They didn’t even notify police.
Personally, I think this Dad handled the situation pretty well, all things considered.
Had it been my daughter, I can’t tell you what I’d do.
After Smith became furious and challenged their decision, officials called Loudon County Sheriff’s deputies.
“I went nuts. I called the principal a pussy. Six cop cars showed up like a fucking SWAT team,” said Smith, adding that he had “exploded with rage.”
Smith and the family’s attorney say a rape kit and other tests prove a sexual assault occurred. After presenting the evidence to the police, a case was opened.
“Thank God that I drew enough attention to it, without getting arrested, that we got an escort to the hospital and they administered a rape kit that night,” he said.
Two months after the incident, the boy was arrested for forced sodomy along with other counts, according to the family’s attorney.
Three weeks after the alleged rape, Smith attended a school board meeting on June 22, where a discussion on a proposal to protect transgender students was on the agenda. After he was dragged out of the meeting, he was ridiculed on social media, and painted as a right-wing anti-trans bigot by the left.

The school covered up a crime. The justice system behaved in a flagrantly political manner. And the media was happy to participate in the politically-useful smearing, as usual. Morally appalling failures from top to bottom.

The family has established a GoFundMe account.
“My wife and I are gay- and lesbian-friendly,” Smith told the Daily Wire. “We’re not into this children transgender stuff. The person that attacked our daughter is apparently bisexual and occasionally wears dresses because he likes them. So this kid is technically not what the school board was fighting about. The point is kids are using it as an advantage to get into the bathrooms.”
Why the Cover-up?
Let’s be real. Teenagers often make bad decisions. And to catch a teenager committing a crime on school grounds is not unheard of. In fact, schools spend a huge portion of their time and energy dealing with discipline. So why try to hide what happened to this girl?
During the June 22 meeting, school board member Beth Barts claimed not to know of any assaults happening in bathrooms or locker rooms during the trans student discussion. Superintendent Scott Ziegler echoed that sentiment, saying “To my knowledge, we don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms,” adding “the predator transgender student or person simply does not exist.”
He went on to quote Time Magazine research that he said disproved the notion transgender kids might sexually attack cisgender kids, and said: ‘I think it’s important to keep our perspective on this, we’ve heard it several times tonight from our public speakers but the predator transgender student or person simply does not exist.’
Smith said he became irate. He started arguing with another woman at the meeting, labeling her a ‘b***h’ after she allegedly denied his daughter’s claim.
He was then charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Smith told the Wire that he was attacked by an activist who insisted his daughter was not assaulted, during which an officer came over.
“The next thing I know, I’m getting touched from all over the place. I didn’t know who was touching me, who was grabbing me. I turn around, the police are grabbing me and next thing I know, I’m tackled to the ground. I’m just shocked and horrified,” Smith told Fox News on Tuesday.
Things Look Pretty Bad!
Clearly, the school was worried about one thing, and one thing only. How would they look if they kicked a “trans” kid out of the girls’ bathroom? And their failure to respond appropriately cleared the way for another assault. But, they could have easily predicted such an outcome. Because that’s exactly what happened before!
According to the Epoch Times, the same boy allegedly, after transferring to another school, was charged with sexual battery in October after being accused of inappropriately touching a 15-year-old in Ashburn.
Meanwhile, Newsweek reports that the same trans boy was reportedly under court-ordered electronic surveillance for a previous sexual assault charge.
A Loudoun County, Virginia, high school student—identified by police as a male and accused of assaulting a girl in a school bathroom while wearing a skirt—was reportedly under court-ordered electronic monitoring for a previous assault charge when the bathroom incident occurred.
It’s unclear why the student was allowed back onto school property as he had previously been charged with sexually assaulting another student on school grounds five months earlier.
At the time, the student was already under electronic monitoring by police due to being charged with sexually assaulting a young girl in a bathroom in an Ashburn high school in May.
In other words, this school failed on every level. This kid didn’t belong in the general population, or public restrooms.
More via the Epoch Times:
The arrest was widely reported and was cited by the National School Boards Association in its recent letter to President Joe Biden urging him to take action to combat incidents the board likened to domestic terrorism.
Several days later, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced federal officials would be targeting people who harass, intimidate, or threaten school board members and others who work with or at public schools.
Notice who leftists care about in this story!
School officials. Certainly not the rape victim. Not the distraught parents tasked with picking up the pieces. Not even the other students at risk, but the people who had to sit there and listen to an angry dad yell. That’s what leftism in America really looks like.
