A school compound near Oracle, Arizona, is having to contend with an unusual spike in violence, reports the Daily Caller:
Since the Obama administration placed the group of illegal minors at the school, emergency calls from the facility to the local sheriff have nearly doubled, the Arizona Daily Independent reports.
“Law enforcement was never provided with the profiles or criminal histories of the unaccompanied juveniles coming from Central America and being placed into our communities,” Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said in a Nov. 11 press release. “Now, we are seeing an increase in violent crimes occurring at Sycamore Canyon Academy, where they were sent. Understandably, the residents of Oracle have been emailing and calling my office due to their concern of hearing of this increase in violence at the academy, and they have every right to be upset. My office is acutely aware of the situation, and we will continue to work to ensure the safety of those in Oracle and the surrounding areas.”
How much of a spike in violence? Last year, between August 1 and Oct 8, the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office received eight calls pertaining to Sycamore youth: “Two were for runaways. Four were 911 hang-ups.” This year, that number has spiked to 13 calls. Furthermore, five of them involved assault, one involved narcotics, one involved “an undescribed crisis” and one involved criminal damage.
The most recent call from the academy to the local sheriff occurred very late on the evening of Oct. 8, 2014 after a juvenile inmate attacked a staffer with a weapon.
The assaulted staffer was a 74-year-old man.
The assailant was Cristian Dakin, a 13-year-old citizen of Colombia. At around 11:15 p.m., witnesses say, Dakin struck the 74-year-old man’s head with a tube sock filled with three bars of soap.
The immigrant boy then took full advantage Arizona’s legal system by refusing to answer any questions about the assault without an attorney present.
In a separate, earlier incident, three boys allegedly attacked a female teacher and tried to take her car keys. The teacher later left her job at the reform school, according to WND.
Charming kids, aye? This is not to say that all illegal immigrant children are bad seeds. It is to say, however, that the idea of just housing them all willy nilly makes very little sense. Furthermore, this spectacle just goes to show that the bullshit claim by liberals that illegal children are all unicorn-loving angels is complete bullshit!
