School Claims 9-Year-Old Is Racist After Asking For Brownies - Calls Police

In a bizarre over-reaction in today’s increasingly politically correct world, a school in New Jersey called police to an end-of-the-year class party for third graders back in May.

Apparently, a third grader made an unspecified comment about the brownies being served to the class. After another student declared that the remark was "racist," and some conversation ensued, the teacher intervened and for some reason, the school called the Collingswood Police Department.

According to the boy's mother, Stacy dos Santos, the police officer questioned her just turned nine-year-old son about what he had said.

Dos Santos noted that her son made a comment about the snacks, not anyone’s skin color. She went on to say that the teacher and the school had hugely overreacted to a nonevent.

In an even more bizarre twist to the story, the CPD referred the incident to the New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency. Sadly, after the incident, the young man stayed home and missed his last day of class.

An irate Dos Santos also claims her son was traumatized by the experience, and will send him to a different Collingswood public school this fall.

She also wants an apology. She points out she graduated from Collingswood High School and has two other kids, a 21-year-old who went through Collingswood public schools, and a toddler who will do the same.

This over-the-top incident by the school has outraged many parents. Some parents note that this is just one of many times Collingswood police have been called for school incidents that parents believe do not merit a criminal investigation.

In response to these complaints, Superintendent Scott Oswald admitted that on some recent occasions, officers may have responded to as many as five incidents a day in the district of 1,875 students.
