EMS Worker says: “We’re Agents of the State”


Mother targeted because she homeschools her son

After a concerned mother called 911 fearing her son was choking, an EMS worker proceeded to conduct an inspection of her house on the premise that she homeschooled, telling the woman “we’re agents of the state”.

“The moment your child is complaining that his stomach hurts, then points to his chest instead, and his face is turning red and he’s coughing, so you call 911. Except, when EMS gets there they laugh at you and tell you if it’s asthma he won’t be complaining about “abdominal pain” (except he’s NOT because he’s POINTING TO HIS CHEST!!!) Then the other asks, “Why aren’t they in school?” Then proceeds to LOOK AROUND YOUR HOUSE when you tell her you homeschool!!! Seriously, people, I am not making this up! I. Am. Livid.”Krista Spinks Bordelon of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, called for an ambulance after her asthmatic son began complaining of chest pains and turning red in the face.

“It was one of those “should I call should I not call” situations,” wrote Bordelon on a privateFacebook page for homsechool parents. “They were super rude when they got there immediately telling me he was fine.”

However, the situation became even worse when one of the EMS supervisors asked Bordelon why her son wasn’t in school. When she replied that her son was homeschooled, the worker began conducting an inspection of Bordelon’s house, telling her “we’re agents of the state”.

“I was told by their supervisor that they are now agents of the state,” wrote Bordelon, adding, “That is probably where it all stemmed from (apart from their rudeness and bad interactions with me and my son – who is autistic.) But a report was definitely filed.”

Bordelon summed up her feelings after the incident on her public Facebook page;

Bordelon now says that she is “super nervous” having filed a complaint and is planning on joining the Home School Legal Defense Association, adding, “I HATE having to feel scared for making a good choice”.

  1. Too many government workers are eager to don Brown Shirts. These douchebags should have charges brought against them.

  2. In a case like this I would suggest a considered response:

    “Why isn’t he in school?”
    “Because he’s sick.”

    Agents of the State, my ass.

  3. What the f*ck did you just ask me? Why aren’t you treating my asthmatic, autistic son clearly in distress, are you trying to f*cking kill him? After I take him to the hospital to save his life from you killers, I’m calling the police and filing a complaint against you for failure to render aid and impersonating a police officer you stinking filthy bolshevik piss ant!

    Next call is to my attorney. I am going to own your asses.

    THIS is bullshit.

  4. The State really, really hates it when you home school and prevent them from indoctrinating your kids.

    Home schooling families, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

  5. “We’re agents of the state.”

    WRONG, Bucko. Anyone who does not give immediate assistance to a person in medical distress is an agent of Satan.

  6. Wait. An EMS person SEARCHED her house? With or without her permission? With or without a WARRANT?

    Contact Governor Jindal. Tell him that Louisiana EMS personnel SEARCHED your house WITHOUT A WARRANT AND WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION. Demand they be fired for Contempt of Constitution and acting under the color of law. Do not stop until they are fired. Do NOT let them just be suspended. FIRE THEM. Make it clear to “agents of the state” that WE THE PEOPLE will NOT sit idly by while our rights are trampled by socialists.

  7. Sorry to hear that this mom was not already a member of HSLDA [Home School Legal Defense Association], and very glad she is going to join now.

    ALL homeschooling families should seriously consider being a part of HSLDA. We were, and didn’t regret a penny of the membership fees (incredibly reasonable). Peace of mind knowing that if anything happened, we had pro bono legal assistance, including instant telephone advice at the first hint of any trouble.
