Give the vindictive a cause

Officials with a Michigan public school district contacted employers of parents who criticized the district's COVID-19 policies and allegedly even kept files on problematic parents. And one of those parents — who filed a lawsuit against the district — said she was fired after the district contacted her boss.

What are the details?

Robert Shaner, superintendent of Rochester Community Schools, said in a deposition that he called Detroit police about a problematic parent who worked as an officer, according to the Daily Wire, which cited a recent Detroit News report: "I said I was concerned about his behavior and, from his Facebook post, what he does for a living with the department. The assistant chief said she would look into it and contact their legal counsel.”

Shaner added that the parent “mentioned that people should go to people’s homes and protest. ... I took his language as aggressive, concerning,” the outlet said, citing the the News.

The superintendent's Feb. 3 deposition was connected to a lawsuit against him and the district brought by parent Elena Dinverno, the Daily Wire said, citing the News — and Shaner also noted in the deposition that the school board monitored parents’ social media feeds.
