Video: Man Arrested After Questioning Common Core

Video of an Ellicott City man being arrested during a meeting about the new education standards.

Watch the video of Robert Small, an Ellicott City parent, who was arrested and charged with second-degree assault of a police officer during a meeting about the new Common Core curriculum in Towson on Thursday night, according to the Baltimore Sun.

In the video small can be seen asking questions about the curriculum, then being asked to let other people ask questions and then a police officer trying to forcefully remove him from  the meeting. 

Common Core, the new standardized curriculum being implemented by Baltimore County, has become controversial because schools are trying to implement the new system on the fly. 

What do you think of the way Small was treated during the meeting? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Here you see the facts that America is no longer the land of the free and now has become a land like Russia and China bent on programming our children to their ways of thinking. Next will be Programs like the Hitler Youth Organizations only camouflaged as American Youth Core Organizations

This was a clear example of Bullying by those with a "title" or a badge. When our officials fear the truth to such an extent we are in big trouble!

Charges were dropped in an effort to cover up the current police state that exists... the cop should be fired and prosecuted.
