Lesson Learned


A homeschooling group in Simpsonville, South Carolina, chose a local park for its meetings because it was next to a police station. They figured they'd be safe there, but they've since reconsidered their reasoning. A man allegedly began shouting at two of the boys in the group during one meeting and pushed one to the ground. One of the mothers ran to help the boy and the man pushed her and the baby she was carrying to the ground. At that point, a uniformed police officer showed up and confirmed the first man was a plainclothes officer. The boy was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon—a small knife on his belt—and the woman was arrested for assaulting a police officer. The officer has since been fired and the charges against the woman and boy dropped.
