The McNeel Intermediate School and police department in Beloit, Wisconsin claim that no laws were broken in the case of a special needs teacher who taped a mask around a students face on Tuesday.
The school is also apparently defending the teacher, claiming that their staff has been subject to “racism” because of reporting on the alleged assault.
“A special education teacher at McNeel Intermediate School in Beloit assaulted my thirteen year old son and nobody is doing anything about it. Not the school, not the superintendent, or the police,” the boy’s father Brock Conner told the Gateway Pundit. “They’re trying to sweep the issue under the rug because it doesn’t fit their narrative.”
As the Gateway Pundit reported on Wednesday, the teacher, Mrs. Jessica Quinodda Scott, previously tried to force the 8th grade student to wear a mask featuring a Pride flag after she claimed his gaiter was not sufficient. Her social media is filled with Black Lives Matter content and leftist politics — and the 13-year-old boy she allegedly assaulted comes from a conservative home.
Scott uses the fake name “Berry Johnson” on Facebook.
Conner told the Gateway Pundit that the most recent incident happened on Tuesday during his 2nd period reading class.
“He sat down and was getting ready for the teacher to start class and he had his mask pulled down, just exposing his nose. She told him to put his mask up and he said he would in just a second, because he was catching his breath. She asked him again, to put it up, and he offered the same reply,” Conner explained.
Conner says the teacher then went and grabbed a roll of tape and started wrapping it around his son’s head.
“My son says that she went around his head about five times with the tape,” Conner said. “Another teacher was in the room when this happened and she yelled at the other teacher saying ‘what are you doing? You can’t do this to a student! This is wrong.’”
However, the second teacher did not succeed in stopping her colleague.
At this point, Conner said that his son asked to leave the class to go call his parents, and she refused. When he tried to get up and leave the class anyways, she locked the door and blocked his path.
“I never got a call. I never got an email. Nothing from the school about the situation,” Conner said. “I didn’t find out about it until my son got home later that day.”
Conner says that his son ripped the tape off and still had red marks on the back of his neck when he got home, even though it happened early in the morning during second period.
The outraged father filed a police report and demanded that she be charged with assault — but police claim that no laws were broken.
The school also responded to the incident by issuing a statement seemingly defending the teacher.
“We worked in collaboration with the City of Beloit Police Department; they have investigated these allegations and have determined there was no violation of local or state laws,” said Beloit School District Superintendent Dan Keyser in a statement. “As a school district we are legally required to follow the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and are unable to respond to inquiries regarding any incidents involving students and staff.”
Instead of worrying about the safety of his students, Keyser is seemingly more worried about the feelings of his staff.
Keyser said administration and school staff had received “racist, hate speech from unknown individuals and organizations.”
“We have zero tolerance for hate speech, violence, or threats made against our staff and District,” Keyser said.
The Beloit Police are reportedly investigating the threats.
The official Wisconsin chapter of the Proud Boys are organizing a protest at the school board building on November 5 at 3 p.m.
Speaking to the Gateway Pundit, a representative of the chapter said that “the Wisconsin Proud Boys support any parent, of any political position or background, that feel they have the right to protect their children.”
“Vaccine or not. Trump or Biden. White or black. It doesn’t matter. This is a fundamental issue that we should all be able to come together on. A teacher abused a child and no parent would put up with this,” their statement continued. “We will not allow this to go by unnoticed. We plan to provide security and general support for the victim’s family and anyone who wishes to attend the event. Everyone should be able to come together on this. Please join us Friday, November 5th.”
The Gateway Pundit has reached out to the school and Mrs. Scott for comment and will update this story if one is provided.
