A high school student in Michigan has reported a teacher at her school for reportedly assaulting her for wearing a “Women for Trump” pin on her shirt.
According to local station WILX, 16-year-old student Sadie Earegood reported her Mason High School teacher, Paul Kato, to police, claiming that Kato assaulted her while ripping off a “Women for Trump” pin she was wearing on her shirt.
Earegood told WILX that the incident began by Kato stating that he did not like the pin she was wearing.
"I was just really shocked that a teacher would especially do that," she said. "He's talking about the 'Women for Trump' pin and I said, 'that's fine you don't have to like it, we can have our opinions.'"
She then claimed a struggle over the pin transpired, involving the teacher grabbing her shoulder and yanking the pin off her shirt:
He grabbed it and I pulled and I tried to push his hand away and he grabbed my shoulder, just kind of put his hand there, and then he started pulling more and more and I just started backing up.
Earegood said that Kato then “put the pin upside down on his shirt and stated that it belonged that way,” reports WILX.
Sadie’s mother Capi Earegood said that she filed “a criminal assault and larceny report against the teacher” on behalf of her daughter.
"He had no right to put his hands on my child over a pin or anything else,” said Capi. “The first amendment gives everyone the right to express their freedom of speech. No one should get that upset about someone wearing a political pin.”
The incident reportedly took place Dec. 5.
Both the Mason Police Department and Mason School District are looking into the situation.
Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk tweeted out video of the news story, pointing out the blatant liberal hypocrisy, as the story remains nowhere to be seen in the mainstream media:
Earegood said that she hopes her speaking out will "be a learning experience for other teachers.
"And I'm not going to stop wearing my political stuff," she said.
