KITCHENER — A Kitchener father is angry at police after he was arrested at his child’s school and later strip-searched at the police station, all because his 4-year-old daughter drew a picture of a gun in class.

“I’m picking up my kids and then, next thing you know, I’m locked up,” Jessie Sansone, 26, said of his ordeal on Wednesday. “I was in shock. This is completely insane.”

The school principal, police and child welfare officials, however, all stand by their actions. They say they had to investigate to determine whether there was a gun in Sansone’s house that children had access to.

“From a public safety point of view, any child drawing a picture of guns and saying there’s guns in a home would warrant some further conversation with the parents and child,” said Alison Scott, executive director of Family and Children’s Services.

Waterloo Regional Police Insp. Kevin Thaler said there was a complaint from Forest Hills Public School that “a firearm was in a residence and children had access to it. We had every concern, based on this information, that children were in danger.”

Sansone said he went to pick up his three children on Wednesday and was summoned to the principal’s office, where three police officers were waiting. They said he was being charged with possession of a firearm.

He was escorted from the school, handcuffed and put in a cruiser. At the same time, other officers went to his home, where his wife and 15-month-old child were waiting for him.

They made his wife come to the police station while the other three children were taken to Family and Children’s Services to be interviewed.

At the police station, Sansone was forced to remove his clothes for a full strip search.

Several hours later, a detective apologized and said he was being released with no charges, Sansone said.

The detective told him his daughter Neaveh had drawn a picture of a man holding a gun. When a teacher asked her who the man was, the girl replied, “That’s my daddy’s. He uses it to shoot bad guys and monsters.”

After he was released, Sansone was asked to sign a paper authorizing a search of his home. He signed, even though he didn’t have to, he said.

The school principal, Steve Zack, said a staff member called child welfare officials because the law requires them to report anything involving the safety or neglect of a child.

Little snitch

Story doesn't say if they asked the child if she ever saw daddy with a gun or if he even owns one. Maybe daddy was just telling her he'd shoot the bad guys or monsters because she was afraid one night.

So the theory here is if a kid draws a picture of something dangerous like a gun it's time for a full blown panic alarm and police officers dragging you off in cuffs?? Holy shit, my daughter drew a picture of a Great White shark once. I'm glad I wasn't stormed by SWAT, PETA and the Coast Gaurd checking my swimming pool for sharks.

Time to bomb Canada and take the oil.

It wasn't the police. It was the report from Child Services that a child had access to an unsecured firearm. That's a major boo boo in Canada and parts of the United States. The cops are forced to act.
Yeah, this is not the cops fault. It's asshole school administrators
and self-righteous CYS fucks that blow this shit out of proportion.

Yeah, some child service people ..have their own kids smelling of topsoil and pot oil..any kid in the real world..OMG ABUSE/ASSAULT/ENDAGERMENT. I had a person from the local child services tell me that flipturns in a pool are negligent and cruel on my behalf because they might hit their legs or head.

Heard about the story and went 'And?'. It's nothing new that the cops up here leave something to be desired. Same as the cops in the US. Namely something called basic intellect.

Our own Motorhead excluded, as he's a good egg.

I drew guns all the time in school, I even showed the teachers my drawings of guns. Things certainly have changed.
