Student Punished for Feeding a Homeless Child

1378492717797I am not one to be quick about throwing down the race card, because frankly I feel that it’s pulled out just a little too much these days.  But there are times when it’s just blatantly obvious and for that reason among many others I am putting Horry County Schools in South Carolina on BLAST.  One student has been suspended while another is being sought on criminal charges and why?  Because one child is homeless, also not a student; and the other spent his lunch break feeding him out of the same car that he was allowing him to live in.  The name of the good Samaritan student has been withheld, but I find it very discriminatory that the name of “criminal” in this case is Santos and has been smeared all through the media even though he is still a minor and no consent has been given.  It has been noted that for quite some time now South Carolina has had a rapidly growing Hispanic community, and now it is becoming apparent that with new laws requiring strict background checks that many of these people can no longer find work to support themselves and their families.  Without proper documentation many of their children cannot enroll in school either.  The homeless 17 year old Santos had been living out of his friend’s car, and his friend would take him food from the cafeteria on his lunch break and spend time with him walking around campus until it was time for him to return to class.  Yes, these actions did provide a security risk, but since when do we see a child in need and take out a warrant for his arrest?  Well in the state of South Carolina it seems that is exactly what they do when it’s a possibility that child could be an illegal immigrant.  Perhaps this is just my opinion but had his last name been less Hispanic, child protective services would have been called, not the police.  And why would we they suspend a child who was doing the very thing that we all should be doing as humans in this society by actually giving a damn.  They should have rewarded this child, not ostracize him from proper education.  He could have just cut class and hung out with his homeless friend all day, but instead he was doing EVERYTHING he was supposed to do and the reaction of the school was to punish him for it?  For shame South Carolina.  You are just as backwards as I’ve always thought you were.

    I applaud the actions of the child that got into trouble for helping another human being out with some food. However, the 800 pound gorilla in the room still must be dealt with. The seventeen year old was in the country illegally. It’s not RACIST to expect that our border security should be honored and respected. The student should not be punished by the school. However, the seventeen-year old homeless illegal alien should be sent back to his home country, along with all others who violate immigration law. We are a nation of laws. If you want to be a part of it, follow the laws and come here the right way. That’s not BACKWARD. That is protecting the sovereignty of our nation from those who would seek to make the United States into a Third World nation that resembles the one that they just came from.

    • raisinemreal says:

      For anyone to ever think that one life is more important than another, no matter how sovereign the nation you live in, is clear evidence of the death of humanity. I’m sure this attitude is not what the founding fathers of this country had in mind when they fled feudalism to create an independent and free land for all to enjoy. But taking into account slavery and all that occurred in the century afterward, it’s apparent that the sick mentality of oppression still has yet to be eliminated. The wall that you build to keep others out is the wall that will keep you from being a part of the world. THE WORLD CRAIG. God forbid the dollar tank tomorrow and Americans have to ask for help from our neighbors to the north and the south. Attitudes like your Shayn, will not be forgotten.
      Now on to that 800 pound gorilla in the room. No matter how you feel about illegal immigrants (aliens are from outer space), this is a child. He was probably brought here through extreme conditions when he was much younger, with no control over the situation whatsoever. Are you saying he should be punished for that? Are you saying that his parents who wanted a better life for their children the same as you would, deserve to have their child dropped off in a land now foreign to them? Perhaps before you decide the fate of this child you should attempt to walk a mile in his shoes. Perhaps you feel that you are too good and privileged to experience such poverty first hand, you know, being a sovereign American and all. When you would suggest sending a child into a life a disadvantage because you feel they don’t belong in your world, it’s time that you admit, your world sucks. Nothing in this life lasts forever. The high horse that you sit upon today could break a leg tomorrow. Be careful of the karma you lay out before you, but more important fix your “give a damn”, I think it’s busted. If you accept them and teach them, I’m sure they will develop the same pride that you have in this country. But if you make them feel lower than you…that’s exactly how they’re going to act.

    It seems some in the south have become heartless and uncaring of others which is odd because that is in the “Bible belt.”

  3. raisinemreal says:

    Jackie, I’ve found that some of the most hypocritical people in the world come from the “Bible Belt”

  4. Shayn Roby says:

    No one said one life is more important than another. However, that OTHER LIFE as you called it, is here without a legal right to be here. That’s the law. The number of people out of the labor force in the United States just hit NINETY MILLION, the most in history, up almost TEN MILLION from 2008. That means there is not adequate opportunity for employing those who are not here legally. Regardless of why or how they got here, or whose fault it was, it’s time to go home. The American government is operating at a deficit of more than one trillion per year. It has to stop. Foreign aid, welfare, and selling out America to third world status in not an option. Speaking of shoes…….the last time I helped carry a load to the Tarahumara Indians in the Chihuahua Mountains in Mexico, the 500 pair that we carried with us were gone within 30 minutes. Most had never owned a pair, and it was zero degree weather. It’s OK to go down and help them if you like, which I have done. It’s NOT OK, to allow the ruin of our nation because poverty exists. Employing an American over a foreigner while in America, is THE RIGHT THING TO DO. American citizenship has value and meaning. Michelle Malkin’s parents came to America the right way. She has been able to reach countless goals and dreams. To give those who cut line a jump ahead of those who waited their turn is insulting to those who played by the rules. I feel someone like you, RaisinEmReal, should be the one who has to stand in front of the those who played by the rules and waited their turn, to explain why it’s OK to give amnesty to the lawbreakers. My guess is you might not like what happens to you. However, whatever cursing, dirty look or even beating that you received from them would be well deserved. Liberal naivete’ is a disease. It’s quite obvious that you have caught the virus that causes it.

    • raisinemreal says:

      Didn’t read this post before I saw the other one. And I can almost agree with you. Almost. I don’t see these people and jumping ahead of others in line. If you take a close look at the political process for citizenship, you will see that some can’t afford to wait. While you complain about those Jumping in Line to come here and work, you are not mentioning the many that sit on their ass every day doing nothing. I don’t see citizens jumping at the opportunity clean the houses of the rich or pick the vegetables from our farms. We have fast food worker going on strike, when most of the illegals are willing to do the work for half the pay. We can’t point a finger at these people for wanting to make a living when we sit and complain about living that we already make. They are not turning our country into a third world status, we aren’t giving them the fair chance to conform to our culture, nor are we properly educating them when they get here. And since we are mincing definitions, they are not called Indians. They are called Natives. Indians are from India.

      • Shayn Roby says:

        We have common ground here. You see, once the welfare is cut, those that sit on their butts will actually get a job. If not, they will be shot when they try to steal from those of us that also believe very strongly in the SECOND AMENDMENT. The fast food worker who goes on strike (BTW, in CA, most of those people are the children of illegal immigrants who are on welfare). Yes, I know a few personally. These teenagers expect to work at a fastfood place for $15 per hour. Why wouldn’t they? California has fed their fat, illegal butts for free all of their lives already. California has 15% of the nation’s population and 33% of its welfare cases. It’s Mexifornia. Its’ true. That’s exactly what is happening.

      • raisinemreal says:

        You sound like a member of the Klan from the 1950’s. LOL. Or worse yet, Jim Crowe in the late 1800’s. You do realize this was their mindset? Change is inevitable. Grow with it gracefully, and learn to make it work for you. Resistance is futile.

      • Shayn Roby says:

        It’s not our obligation to ‘properly educate’ someone when they are here illegally to begin with. In regard to your claim that we do not give illegals an opportunity. Five minutes spent in Huntington Park, CA would show you that these people have no desire to become part of the ‘melting pot’. They have lived in Huntington Park all of their lives illegally, and have made no attempt to learn English, even though their kids and grandchildren are drawing from the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program that is advertised in the American Embassy in Tijuana. And yes, everyone knows that they are coming to Huntington Park when they cross the border illegally. The buses in San Ysidro don’t even say ‘Los Angeles’ for crying out loud. They say ‘Huntington Park’, even though it’s five minutes out of Los Angeles. Enough said.

      • raisinemreal says:

        Would you be willing to give them back that half of California to solve the problem? It was theirs to begin with.

  5. Shayn Roby says:

    This is the definition of “illegal alien” from dictionary.reference.com.

    illegal alien
    noun
    1.
    a foreigner who has entered or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country’s authorization.
    2.
    a foreigner who enters the U.S. without an entry or immigrant visa, especially a person who crosses the border by avoiding inspection or who overstays the period of time allowed as a visitor, tourist, or businessperson. Compare resident alien.

    The term “liberal” in your case would definitely apply. You prefer to define things in the light of how you choose to see it, rather than how it actually is. The term “alien” is appropriate.

    It appears that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website disagrees with you with respect to the term “alien”. The term is both correct and appropriate.

    • raisinemreal says:

      Your vocabulary skills are strong. Yet you still cannot justify your political correctness in lieu of the lives of children. Out of everything that I said to you your only argument was how I choose to define the term alien. You have no response to the right of “the good life” for all children, no matter where they were born. I find your argument invalid and pointless. All life deserves a fair chance on this planet no matter what soil it dwells on. It is politics that divides and conquers us, liberal or conservative, eventually we need to be on the same page or we will destroy ourselves from within. We need to give our children a world without borders or boundaries. This means we have to come together. The word Compromise starts with the same letters as the word Compassion. Break them down, and you will see that without passion, there is no promise. Without love for all, we will all die. And you can quote me on that…there’s no link or reference, these are my beliefs and my words. Keep reading, I enjoy these discussions.

  6. Shayn Roby says:

    I can’t agree about the world without borders or boundaries. It’s not realistic. Such a world will just make it easier for Los Zetas and the other monsters running through Juarez to have even more of a free hand in their murderous activities than they already do. The ‘no-links’ comment, I actually like. I can respect your beliefs and words for what they are. Our nation can’t be expected to pull the whole load for the rest of the world. That is what is being asked for. Sooner or later, our currency may indeed tank, and that is a result of too much welfare, foreign aid, and quantitative easing. You better buy some gold, silver, and lead. This Tennessee boy will have plenty. Charity is a good thing, but it is the right of each citizen to decide TO WHOM they will give. Almost always, the government is a poor steward in aiding the poor. Hence, the fallacy of the liberal premise that ideas such as welfare are necessary functions of government, and that equality of results and equality of opportunity are the same thing. Mexican children SHOULD NOT have access to the same opportunities when AMERICAN CITIZENS have paid federal, state, and local taxes all of their lives and then are denied opportunities so that someone from a foreign land can receive them. Taking care of your own first is just an exercise in common sense. I’m going to take care of my own first. If you want to take care of others before you take care of your own with your paycheck, you do it. Don’t volunteer mine though. Of course that’s the liberal mantra……….take care of the rest of the world……….by putting your hand in SOMEONE ELSE’S wallet and then using it to “help those poor people out”.

    • raisinemreal says:

      The demise of the dollar will be because of American greed and wastefulness. Look at the amount of food we throw in the trash everyday because of FDA guidelines. And we all know the proposed strikes in Syria have nothing to do with chemical weapons and everything to do with corporate greed. If you are going to cry foul on some of our misdeeds, you have to be willing to cry foul on them all. No, we can’t pull the weight of the world, but we have to first stop being a burden on the rest of world relying on their cheap labor to keep our creature comforts. There’s someone out there selling their children for labor to make bullets for our wars so that we can shop at Wal Mart and have cheaper gas. But I don’t hear conservatives talking about that?

  7. Shayn Roby says:

    Most conservatives oppose the Syrian strikes. Al Qaeda and The Muslim Brotherhood have something in common. They enjoy killing Christians. Perhaps that’s why Muslim Barry loves them as well. The cheaper gas comment? What planet are you on? The Keystone Pipeline would provide way cheaper gas than anything in the Middle East. Muslim Barry wouldn’t want to upset Democrat Schmoozer Warren Buffet’s Nebraska railroad monopoly though. I’ll still go to Wal-Mart. It sure beats buying goods made by unions, who get sweetheart deals from Democratic politicians (who were former union members). It’s even worse in the public sector. California governments are broke because of the public education and public employee gravy trains run by the criminal syndicate more commonly known as The Democratic Party. Wal-Mart does more for Mexico than any other chain I’ve seen, by the way. They own Soriana. It’s almost the only place you can buy clean, wholesome food for a reasonable price. If you crossed the border every now and then, you might actually be aware of this. Pero, tal vez. Solomente crees que sabes todo, pero solamente eres una sabe lo toda en tu mente.

    • raisinemreal says:

      It sounds like you agree with me about American greed, but you still want to argue because you’ve labeled me a liberal. Admit it Shayn, we are coming closer to a compromise. I love your passion by the way. I don’t agree with it, but I love it.
