The event creator says
A white parent pulled a knife on Black 7-y/o girl at elementary school, threatened to cut her tongue out, admitted to it, and got a warning. Administrators told the girl not to tell anyone. The girl is too terrified to go back to school. The child's mother requests that you join a protest at Broadview-Thompson Elementary Monday @ 8:30am. #JusticeForPatience

**Plan**

ACROSS the street from the school, on the west side of Greenwood Ave. North, just north of 130th. It will be on the sidewalk and there will be no profanity on the signs. Being that it is a school, our goal is to show our presence without alarming the children. We will stay on the sidewalk and not interfere with pedestrian traffic. There will be a lot of backlash not only from the school, but from other parents as well, there already has been so we don't want to give them anything to hold against us. It is perfectly legal for us to demonstrate on the sidewalk.

**Details, in a mother's words**

A parent brought a POCKET KNIFE to school and threatened my 7 year old daughter. This incident happened in the morning around 9am.... I was not notified until around 2 o'clock. When I met with [the principal] Mr. Sammons the next day, I was told the parent was given a WARNING because she claimed she was "just kidding," and would still be allowed on the property. A police report had NOT been filed until I did so after the meeting that day.

The school needs to admit they made a mistake. My daughter is not a problem child and is at the top of her class. If something had been done by the school immediately after the incident, my kid would still be in school. She's been home since Monday (April 8th) terrified! This is not a joke, and the school treated it as such. I shouldn't have had to go to the news and police myself.
