Red State: A Florida father went ballistic last week after learning that his seven-year-old daughter with Down Syndrome had been subjected to child abuse at school. Moreover, the abuse had been going on for six weeks. All in the name of COVID “safety,” of course.
When his daughter Sophia got off the bus on Oct. 7 she had a COVID mask tied tightly across her face, Jeffrey Steele told WOFL-TV in Orlando, as reported by The Blaze.
Upon further inspection, according to The Blaze, Steele said the face mask was tied around his daughter’s head with a blue nylon string and allegedly soaked with saliva. The dad said he forced himself to “[wait] four days” before calling the school.
“I was so angry so I waited four days from Thursday 7th to Tuesday after Columbus Day because I really need to calm down.
“When this child got off the bus and had the mask it was tied around the back of her head underneath her ponytail and it was quite tight around her face.”
Given Sophia’s condition, Steele said she could have aspirated — or worse.
“Medically, she could aspirate. She could asphyxiate all sorts of medical things that could happen and because of her breathing because of her enlarged tongue could cause seizures.”
Steele demanded to know why he was not informed in September, when the mask mandate first went into effect, and asked for his informed consent due to his daughter’s condition, as required by Florida law. MORE
