Madness: Police arrest dad for a drawing of him holding a gun

Rate this post

Canadian police arrested a man in Kitchener, Ontario, because his 4-year-old daughter had drawn a picture of him holding a gun.
As reported by Sun News, Feb. 24, 2012, Jessie Sansone told the newspaper Record that he was in shock when police arrested and took him to a police station for questioning over the drawing: “This is completely insane. My daughter drew a gun on a piece of paper at school.”
Officials told the newspaper the move was necessary to ensure there were no guns accessible by children in the family’s home. They also justified the arrest because 4-year-old Neaveh Sansone had said the man holding the gun in her drawing was her dad and “he uses it to shoot bad guys and monsters.”
To add insult upon injury, the police not only arrested Sansone, they also strip-searched him and searched his home while he was in custody. His wife and three children were taken to the police station, and the children were interviewed by Family and Children’s Services.
Sansone’s wife, Stephanie Squires, told the newspaper no one told them why her husband had been arrested: “He had absolutely no idea what this was even about. I just kept telling them, ‘You’re making a mistake.'”
Several hours later, the police finally released Jessie Sansone without charges.
Any day now, this madness is sure to creep across the border into the United Socialist States of America. That is, if it hasn’t already.

  1. Madness indeed…next thing you know you’ll be arrested for thinking about shooting a bad guy.

  2. I guess the police have not heard that the Conservative MAJORITY government in Canada just voted out the gun registry, which has been the law for many years, “because it does not work.”This is just insanity!!!

  3. I wonder if the police were searching for monsters in their house.

    • They should look into a mirror.

    • I bet they looked under the beds… monsters like to hide there… BTW, is it illegal to shoot monsters? Now I wonder how embarrassing it would be if they actually had found a gun… one of those for playstation. Because as far as I know, playstation is a good tool for those into killing monsters!!! But perhaps it is illegal to shoot monsters virtually as well…

  4. Squirt gun?

  5. One of the big reasons for never sending your child to pubic (misspelling
    intentional) school because they pump the children for information about what goes on in the family. I will say it again, anyone who sends their children to pubic school is downright crazy.

  6. This is Canada, this is Canada after years of left/liberal policies… any questions? (So nice to know that left/liberals are okay with having you arrested and strip-searched without actually being charged with anything because your kids expressed something against an educators personal social philosophy… makes one really trust Demo-rats, you know.)

  7. This is my rifle, this is my gun, one is for fighting, the other, is for fun.

  8. It’s getting just as insane in this country.

  9. Reblogged this on News You May Have Missed.

  10. Let’s see… Casey Anthony murders her beautiful little girl, and because of it she is expected to grow filthy rich from book deals and/or movie rights. A young girl recenly accused of murdering her roommate in Italy was returned to her family, and is now expected to become rich from it. A young girl posted disrespectful and hateful blogs about her family and other leaders in her community, and was ridiculed by her father in a counter video where he shot her laptop, and that youngster is expected to get rich from her bad behavior. So, will this guy get rich from a book deal because of the mistreatment he received at the hand of lunacy in government, or will his case get swept under the rug, since, after all, there is no doubt that he is actually INNOCENT OF ANY WRONG DOING WHATSOEVER! He deserves at least a spot on Jay Leno!

  11. …I used to draw pictures of guns on the back of the guest-cards
    (with the little tiny pencils) at church. Asked about it,my mother
    responded,”I’m for ANYthing that keeps him quiet for awhile!”
    Ah,simpler times.

  12. Gee, how would you like a swaztika on your flag? Get over it, gun laws in Canada are different than in the U.S.A., don’t let that feed your paranoia, it’s just better that way.

    Unless Jesse has audio recorded the proceedings, it will be his words against police and so long as the police has not charged him the Charter of Rights may only apply in a limited way apply. In another recent case in Peel, police offered to follow up on a complaint against municipal by-law officers violating the Criminal Code by filing “false documents”. They were going to send a plain cloth officer to interview the complainant at his home. Soon two police cruisers showed up with uniformed officers scouting the property as if they are looking for a fugitive. The homeowner turned his audio recorder on and opened the door. They asked questions and left without any incident. All was polite and nice. Later, when the complainant got a copy of police report under the freedom of information he was surprised about all the lies that police had put into the records that were “false documents” under a “false pretence” by police. He has since applied for the correction of false information through the IPC. Police is hiding behind the allowed “professional opinion” and “good faith” that in Ontario has weakened the protection of privacy and freedom of information for 99%. They don’t want to correct the false documents they have generated, and they do not want to investigate the by-law officers’ false documents either. All Sansone’s family members should ask for the report of that day on them. They pay $5 per report under the Ontario / Municipal Freedom of Information Act. That’s the follow-up point for Sansones.
