Schools can install cameras in bathrooms and spy on kids via laptops, but parents treated as pedophiles for taking innocent photographs of their own children

Yet another story about a school installing surveillance cameras in bathrooms reminds us that, while parents are treated as pedophiles for taking photographs of their own children, any perversion whatsoever is acceptable as long as it is conducted by those deemed to be in a position of authority.
“Outraged parents have hit out at a school in Birmingham after pupils discovered CCTV cameras in the school’s toilets,” reports Sky News.
“Youngsters at Grace Academy in Chelmsley Wood claim they returned from half-term to find staff had installed the cameras without notifying them or their parents.”
The report points to another recent case in Britain, where a school in Salford filmed children in various stages of undress changing into their gym kit.
Parents slammed the move as a “total invasion of privacy” and many students refused to use the bathroom, but the school claimed that installing cameras to watch children in the most intimate setting possible was perfectly normal because “children want to feel secure”.
So as long as it’s done in the name of safety and security, watching children in bathrooms is acceptable. Perhaps child molesters who are caught with kiddie porn should use the defense that they are merely watching videos of children to make them “feel secure”. But we’re forgetting the golden rule – you’re only allowed to engage in such behavior if you happen to be ascribed some position of authority.
We have reported on numerous cases of school officials installing cameras in school bathrooms which allow perverts to spy on children in various stages of undress.
Compare this with the case of Kevin Geraghty-Shewan, a man who dared to take photographs of his own son in public riding a toy train.

Geraghty-Shewan was promptly interrupted by a security thug who accused him of being a pedophile. The man was then approached by a police officer and threatened with arrest for having the temerity to get upset about the situation. Of course, the fact that Geraghty-Shewan and his son were simultaneously being filmed by a plethora of shopping mall CCTV cameras is beside the point – big brother is allowed to watch us but we can’t even record our own offspring without being lectured about how we’re potential child molesters by those in petty positions of authority.
And it’s not just school corridors and bathrooms where kids are being spied on. Perhaps the most shocking aspect of the recent case in Philadelphia, where a school district issued laptop computers to 1,800 students across two high schools and then used concealed cameras within the machines to spy on students and their parents without their knowledge or consent, is the fact that school officials did not attempt to hide the scandal, they bragged about it.
In a PBS news clip, the assistant principle in a seperate case shows a reporter how, much to his own amusement, he spies on kids via their laptops and even takes pictures of them.
“I always like to mess with them and take a picture,” chuckles the man as the reporter whitewashes the alarming spectacle.
Watch the clip.
If a pervert had been caught installing software on laptops that enabled him to watch and record children, there would be outrage, but again, when someone in a petty position of authority does it, it’s normal and good.
A similar mindset can be seen with the introduction of naked body scanners, which despite the fact that they break child pornography laws, are being used on children of all ages to produce crystal clear images of their genitals which can be seen by airport security staff.
This cult-like mass mental illness that anything done by an authority figure is acceptable strikes at the very root of everything that’s wrong with our society today.
The broader argument is that schools across the western world are now beginning to resemble prisons as children are surveilled, policed and even arrested as criminals for the most benign adolescent behavior like doodling on a desk, as happened to 12-year-old Queens student Alexa Gonzalez recently.
Regular drug raids, strip searches and lockdowns all inculcate within the child the notion that they are a prisoner of big brother from an early age.
Anyone who can afford to get their children out of the public school system and place them in a well-run private school or better yet, home school their kids, would be insane not to do so in the current climate.
For those who can’t afford to do so, you’re going to have to spend a lot of time with your children in an attempt to reverse the psychological conditioning they are being bombarded with on a daily basis in the prison camps without bars that now pass for schools in many parts of the western world.
