With all the gloom and doom that routinely saturates the media, it is encouraging to see periodic stories that bring a smile to one’s face, especially near the start of an increasingly long work week.
This week, countless conservatives, and genuinely concerned parents, will smile upon knowing that Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin has pardoned Scott Smith following a series of utterly absurd charges.
Scott is well known as the parent who became visibly upset in a school board meeting over the militant transgender policy that allows boys to freely enter girls’ bathrooms … after his daughter was violated in the worst possible way by a “transgender” posing in a skirt.
“His daughter had been sexually assaulted in the bathroom of a school, and no one was doing anything about it … This was a gross miscarriage of justice,” Youngkin noted, providing crucial context for his highly valid pardon.
As reported by Fox News, the young girl was assaulted at Stone Bright High School.
And, in all their wisdom, the administrators and superintendents decided to cover up the crime.
Little wonder that Smith became upset at a school board meeting in light of the woke authority’s obsession with erasing gender.
Smith was subsequently charged with both disorderly conduct and obstruction, with the latter dropped though the former stayed, with a ten-day suspended sentence.
A sentence that has now been permanently erased, thanks to Youngkin’s pardon.
“We righted a wrong … He should’ve never been prosecuted here. This was a dad standing up for his daughter,” Youngkin remarked.
In remarks to Fox, Youngkin noted that Smith’s actions were completely aligned with what many other fathers would have done.
“Mr. Smith did what any father would do, what any parent would do, which is stand up for their child … I spoke with Mr. Smith on Friday, and I had the privilege of telling Mr. Smith that I will pardon him, and we did that on Friday,” Youngkin proclaimed.
And now the Smiths are no longer unjustly muzzled.
Jessica Smith, the mother of the young girl, also weighed in, chiefly about being barred from speaking.
“We were silenced for many months … We were told not to say a word that could jeopardize our daughter’s case,” she detailed in remarks to the Daily Mail.
Terrifying. Parents silenced to keep transgender militants. What an upside down world.
“There should have been more done to help, not a coverup,” Smith added pointedly.
Fortunately, a rather compelling special report revealed the horrors of the heinous coverup, orchestrated by former Loudoun County Superintendent Scott Ziegler, as detailed below:
“There were several decision points for senior LCPS administrators, up to and including the superintendent, to be transparent and step in and alter the sequence of events leading up to the October 6 BRHS sexual assault …
They failed at every juncture. We also believe the October 6 abduction and sexual assault of a female student at Broad Run High School could have, and should have, been prevented …
This invariably led to a stunning lack of openness, transparency, and accountability both to the public and the special grand jury,” the special report detailed.
Little wonder Ziegler is the “former” superintendent.
Even less wonder that multiple individuals have weighed in on Youngkin’s pro-family action.
“I think Scott Smith showed considerable restraint considering what happened to his daughter, and the pardon is the right thing to do. But it doesn’t go far enough. The superintendent and other culpable school officials now need to be prosecuted,” one Fox News commenter remarked.
Being removed from the superintendent position is a total no-brainer … After all, if a teacher were to drive drunk to school and shows up visibly inebriated to work, they should theoretically be removed from their positions as well. Not to mention face potential DUI and other charges.
And in this case, the superintendent covered up a rape, directly enabling another rape to happen … all to cover up for a so-called transgender who clearly isn’t even transgender!
… Though “they” certainly do illuminate the degree to which transgender militancy has already led to inexcusably violence consequences.
