12 Year Old Adrienne Solórzano Missing Since 9/26/13 in Garland, TX … “Initially Reported as a Runaway, but Now Say this is Not a Typical Runaway Case.” (Update: Found Safe)
12 year old Adrienne Solórzano missing since 11:00 am Thursday, September 26, 2013 in Garland. Texas. She was asked to leave the classroom at her Brandenburg Middle School to meet with her father and aother adults; however, she never showed up and has not been seen or heard from since.
According to authorities, the 12-year-old girl had first been reported as a runaway, but after some investigation police determined the girl’s disappearance is not “the typical runaway case.”
On Thursday Adrienne’s father was at Brandenburg Middle School, to meet with one of his daughter’s teachers. Once he arrived on campus Adrienne was asked to leave her class and go to the meeting with the adults. The young girl left from the room but never showed up for the meeting. Adrienne has not been seen or heard from since exiting that class at around 11:00 a.m. Thursday.
Police have asked for the public’s help in looking for 12-year-old Adrienne Solorzano, who disappeared from Brandenburg Middle School around 11 a.m. Thursday.
Authorities said the seventh grader was initially reported as a runaway, but now say this is not a typical runaway case.
Anyone with information about Adrienne is urged to contact Garland police immediately at 972-485-4840.
UPDATE I: Missing Garland Girl Found At Gas Station.
The search for a missing girl in Garland has ended with her safe return. Adrienne Solórzano, 12, was found Saturday afternoon near the school where she disappeared Thursday. Friends and police started an extensive search that day; asking for the public’s help and exhausting any and all leads in the case.
Looks like missing Adrienne Solórzano was found safe at a Mexican restaurant, rather than a gas station as earlier reported. Now matter, the most important thing is that she was found SAFE!
Police received a call around 3:00 p.m. Saturday saying Adrienne Solorzano was at the Blue Lobster Mexican Restaurant in the 700 block of West Centerville. Officers arrived and found the girl, they took her to the police department to be interviewed. Police are still interviewing the girl and are not talking about the circumstances surrounding her disappearance.
UPDATE: 7th Graders at Virginia Beach, VA Suspended for Playing With Toy Guns On Private Property Are Officially Expelled
UNREAL. WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN …
From the story the other day where three 7th graders were suspended from their Virginia Beach, VA elementary school for playing with toy guns on private property, we have an update and you are not going to believe it. The children were suspended for possession, handling and use of a firearm, even though it was a toy.
Talk about you overreactions and lack of any common sense.
Here is the update from The Daily Caller, three morons on the disciplinary committee consisting from the Virginia Beach City Public Schools board made the absurd decision to unanimously expel the boys for the rest of the school year. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! The three brain surgeons from the Virginia Beach City Public Schools board were identified by local media as Dottie Holtz, Bobby Melatti and Carolyn Weems. Who on earth comes up with this decision in an attempt to ruin these children’s lives? Talk about the punishment not fitting the crime. Of course there was no crime, it was a friggin toy gun.
The Virginia Beach seventh graders who were suspended for playing with an airsoft toy gun on their own private property have now been expelled for an entire school year.
The decision was made unanimously by a disciplinary committee consisting of three members of the Virginia Beach City Public Schools board, according to local news.
Khalid Caraballo and Aidan Clark are banned from Larkspur Middle School until at least January, when a new hearing will be convened to determine whether the boys can come back to school early.
Here are the brain surgeons from the Virginia Beach City Public Schools board, otherwise known as the latest Ship of Fools.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … Virginia Beach 7th Grade Student Suspended from School for Firing Toy Gun Near Bus Stop on His Own Property
WTF, So now private property means nothing in the United States … ZERO TOLERANCE, MORE LIKE ZERO COMMON SENSE!!!
A 7th grade boy and two of his friends in Virgina Beach VA have been suspended from school and could be expelled for the rest of the year because of shooting a toy gun. But this story gets better, or worse as the case may be. The children were suspended for possession, handling and use of a firearm. However, the children were playing with the “TOY” guns on private property, not school grounds, not on a school bus or not at the bus stop. How on earth can a child be suspended from a school when playing on their own “PRIVATE” property? The school gas ZERO jurisdiction as to what one does on their own property. WHAT HAS THIS COUNTRY COME TO? Oh, and by the way, how can a child be suspended for handling and possession of a firearm, WHEN IT WAS A TOY!!!
The incident brings into play the notion of “Zero Tolerance”. However, I would dare say this incident has “ZERO” common sense. The day a school is allowed to suspend a child for playing with something legal on their own private property is the day we might as well burn the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence and declare our self a military state.
Watch the video of news story HERE.
A suspended seventh grade Virginia Beach student will find out soon if he is expelled for the rest of the year for shooting an airsoft gun.
Like thousands of others in Hampton Roads, Khalid Caraballo plays with airsoft guns. Caraballo and his friend Aidan were suspended because they shot two other friends who were with them while playing with the guns as they waited for the school bus.
The two seventh graders say they never went to the bus stop; they fired the airsoft guns while on Caraballo’s private property.
Aidan’s father, Tim Clark, told WAVY.com what happened next lacks commons sense. The children were suspended for possession, handling and use of a firearm.
Khalid’s mother, Solangel Caraballo, thinks it is ridiculous the Virginia Beach City Public School System suspended her 13-year-old son and Aidan because they were firing a spring-driven airsoft gun on the Caraballo’s posted private property. “My son is my private property. He does not become the school’s property until he goes to the bus stop, gets on the bus, and goes to school.”
The bus stop in question is 70 yards from the Caraballo’s front yard.
Why would anyone want to ruin a child’s life over something so stupid? Suspend a child and possible expulsion over this? Thank God I am not a kid in today’s society for my daily playing of Army with with friends back in the day would have put me at the top of the list on the Post Office wall of the “Most Wanted”.
Backlash against Michelle Obama’s healthy school lunch program …
The National School Lunch Program, that is supported by first lady Michelle Obama is a failure. Just one yard after it was implemented, many school districts are dropping out of the federal lunch program because the children are not just eating it. “They say it tastes like vomit”. As more and more children, either go hungry for the rest of the day, or bring in their own lunches and don’t buy the lunches, the program cannot afford to pay for itself. How comical, the kids won’t eat the food and lunch rooms are losing money. This administration can get nothing right.
Why does this sound like Obamacare?
Way to set an example to the kids by eating healthy Barack Obama
After just one year, some schools around the country are dropping out of the healthier new federal lunch program, complaining that so many students turned up their noses at meals packed with whole grains, fruits and vegetables that the cafeterias were losing money.
Federal officials say they don’t have exact numbers but have seen isolated reports of schools cutting ties with the $11 billion National School Lunch Program, which reimburses schools for meals served and gives them access to lower-priced food.
Districts that rejected the program say the reimbursement was not enough to offset losses from students who began avoiding the lunch line and bringing food from home or, in some cases, going hungry.
Look for this administration to put a penalty in place for those who do not buy the healthy lunches much like Obamacare. Didn’t Obama promise you can keep the lunch you had and it would cost less?
Good grief, we can’t seem ta arrest any one at the IRS for illegally targeting conservative organizations or any one at the Justice department for AP or James Rosen-gate, but the some how we are able to jail a 14 year old for freedom of speech.
We had previously reported that 8th grader Jared Marcum, who attended the Logan Middle School in West Virginia had been arrested, suspended and faced charges for wearing an NRA T-shirt with the image of a firearm and the words “Protect Your Right” printed on it to school. School officials actually called the police on this kid for wearing a shirt to school and expressing his “freedom of speech”. This is still America, right? But now we learn that the case has not been dropped and that Jared Marcum could face a year in jail. HUH? As stated at Guns Saves Lives, how on Earth have these charges not yet been dropped? This entire incident was caused by an over-reaction by school officials and now it has gotten so far out of control that it could lead to an American citizen expressing their Constitutional rights.
According to a report by WTRF the prosecuting attorney is moving forward with that charge and a judge is allowing the case to move forward. Fourteen year old Jared Marcum could face up to a $500 fine and up to a year in jail (we’ll seriously hope that isn’t a real possibility) if found guilty.
According to the report, the arresting officer alleges that when Jared refused to stop talking he hindered the officers ability to do his job and that is where the obstruction arrest came from. I’m guessing a 14 year old kid who felt intimidated was trying to explain himself, but let’s throw him in jail for good measure.
According to the report, both the prosecuting attorney and police refused to comment or answer any questions from reporters regarding the case.
When did this country get so screwed up? Does anyone think he would be facing the same predicament if his shirt was “anti-gun” or maybe if it was pro-Muslim” or pro “illegal immigration”. Weasel Zippers says, STOP THE INSANITY!!! When will some one in authority use an ounce of common sense and just drop the charges?
7 Year Old Virginia Second Grader Christopher Marshall Suspended From School For Holding Pencil Like A Gun
Public school insanity just got a bit more insane. A second grader was suspended from school for pointing a pencil at another student and making gun noises. Seven year old Christopher Marshall was playing with another student in class point pencils at each other. For this the boy was suspended. Some how pointing a pencil at another and making a gun noise is dangerous. Really? No you public education fools, handing a pencil as if it were a knife and trying to stab some one is dangerous, not making a pretend gun sound. IDIOTS, COMPLETE IDIOTS. There was nothing threatening about this, the boys were playing. But that did not stop the school from suspending the boy for two days.
A Suffolk school suspended a second grader for pointing a pencil at another student and making gun noises.
Seven-year-old Christopher Marshall says he was playing with another student in class Friday, when the teacher at Driver Elementary asked them to stop pointing pencils at each other.
“When I asked him about it, he said, ‘Well I was being a Marine and the other guy was being a bad guy,’” said Paul Marshall, the boy’s father. “It’s as simple as that.”
Listen to the complete stupidity from spokesperson for Suffolk Public Schools: “A pencil is a weapon when it is pointed at someone in a threatening way and gun noises are made.” THREATENING? What part about the boys were playing as reported do you people not understand? Because something sound threatening, that makes it threatening? UNREAL. What if the boy had pointed the pencil at the other child and sang a Church hymn? Would that have made it less threatening? Oh my bad, that would have probably gotten him expelled for bringing religion into school. But this is the crap that comes out of public education these days. They cannot comprehend the difference between the two.
“Some children would consider it threatening, who are scared about shootings in schools or shootings in the community,” said Bradshaw. “Kids don’t think about ‘Cowboys and Indians’ anymore, they think about drive-by shootings and murders and everything they see on television news every day.”
8th Grader Jared Marcum Arrested & Suspended for Wearing NRA ‘Protect Your Right’ T-Shirt With Image of Gun
How do things like this happen in the United States?
Jared Marcum, an 8th grader at the Logan Middle School in West Virginia has been arrested, suspended and faces charges for wearing an NRA T-shirt with the image of a firearm and the words “Protect Your Right” printed on it to school. HUH? Police confirmed that Marcum had been arrested and faced charges of obstruction and disturbing the education process after getting into an argument with a teacher. HUH? The school is claiming that the shirt that Marcum was wearing, an NRA shirt that had “Protect Your Right” on it with the image of a gun violated the school’s dress code. However, no where in reviewing the school’s dress code policy did the 8th grader appear to violate said policy. No where in the dress code policy did it prohibit gun images.
Unreal. This school and this foolish teacher would attempt to ruin a kids life by having him arrested over a shirt with the image of a gun on it. Liberalism and PC running wild. Who knew that a pro-Second Amendment shirt would result in an 8th graders First Amendment rights being trampled? So where is the ACLU coming to his aid to protect his civil rights?
WOWK-TV reported Jared Marcum saying he never thought there would be a problem with his pro-Second Amendment apparel.
“I never thought it would go this far because honestly I don’t see a problem with this. There shouldn’t be a problem with this,” Marcum told WOWK-TV.
Police confirmed that Marcum had been arrested and faced charges of obstruction and disturbing the education process after getting into an argument over the shirt with a teacher at Logan Middle School, which is south of Charleston.
How does all this lead to an arrest and an 8th grader being sent to jail? Seriously, how does a dress code issue wind up in a school calling the police and attempting to ruin a kids life? Is this how educators think they are providing our children with an education? Maybe the teachers and school administrators need to do a home work assignment of their own and read the US Constitution.
This family should sue this school district and the teacher who he got into the argument with individually.
UPDATE I: The families lawyer, Ben White, said that the T-shirt did not appear to violate any school policy. White said he also wants to get the criminal charges dropped. It was the school that created this incident by improperly interpreting their own dress code policy and then escalating it with calling the police.
Their lawyer, Ben White, said that the T-shirt did not appear to violate any school policy.
“I just don’t understand why this teacher reacted the way he did,” said White, who said he asked school officials to preserve surveillance video of the cafeteria.
White said he planned to meet Monday with Principal Ernestine Sutherland.
Florida Dad Furious After Finding His 4th Grade Son’s School Paper: “I Am Willing to Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights … to Be Safer”
READING , WRITING and INDOCTRINATION …
These public schools just do not give up on brainwashing the children of America. Pay really close attentions parents, because the next child being indoctrinated might just be yours. Why do many liberal educators so hate the freedoms provided in the US Constitution? Maybe some one should have stood up and told the teacher that, “FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE”!
Aaron Harvey, a Florida dad who’s 4th grade son attends the Cedar Hills Elementary in Jacksonville is furious because of a writing assignment given to his son and rightfully so. As reports at Yahoo News, a local attorney came in to teach the students about the Bill of Rights. in January; however, after the attorney left, the fourth-grade teacher Cheryl Sabb dictated the following sentence to part of the class and had them copy it down … “I Am Willing to Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights … to Be Safer”. Really, why would a teacher pick giving up individual’s rights provided in the ‘Bill of Rights’to be the lesson of the day? Can you say liberal indoctrination? The question that needs to be answered is why should any of “WE THE PEOPLE” have to give up any of our Constitutional rights to be safer? But of course a 4th grader would never respond in that manner, thus the reason why a teacher would attempt to indoctrinate them at that age. At some point it needs to be made a criminal offense for teachers to bring their politics into the classroom. That would put an end to this nonsense.
The words are written in crayon, in the haphazard bumpiness of a child’s scrawl.
“I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.”
They’re the words that Florida father Aaron Harvey was stunned to find his fourth-grade son had written, after a lesson in school about the Constitution.
Florida 4th Grader Brings Home Paper That Says, I Am Willing to Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights in Order to Be Safer…
Aaron Harvey’s son wrote as part of a school lesson, “I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.” TheBlaze has redacted the child’s name.
Harvey’s son attends Cedar Hills Elementary in Jacksonville, Fla. Back in January, a local attorney came in to teach the students about the Bill of Rights. But after the attorney left, fourth-grade teacher Cheryl Sabb dictated the sentence to part of the class and had them copy it down, he said.
The following is rather telling. Kandra Albury, the spokesperson for Duvall County Public Schools stated that the Cedar Hills principal received many concerns by parents back in January when the lesson was first done and the district/principal was looking into it. The spokesperson made an underhanded reference that Harvey was not one of the concerned parents who complained. Here it is April, 3 months later, and the school district has still not explained themselves. Maybe they will now that they have been outed in the media as the furious father went directly to The Blaze rather than getting the run-around and the story buried by the district.
Kandra Albury, a spokeswoman for Duvall County Public Schools, which includes Cedar Hills, told TheBlaze she didn’t know what prompted Sabb to have students write the sentence.
She said the principal had fielded one parent’s concern about the lesson in January, but it wasn’t Harvey. She said Thursday the district and principal were “checking into” what had happened.
UPDATE I: Florida School District Responds to Child’s ‘Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights’ Assignment: ‘A Review and Investigation Will Occur’.
The problem is not what the attorney taught in providing civics to the youth. At issue is the liberal teacher who wants children to start thinking about what rights they would give up to so-called be safer.
The lesson taught by the attorney was part of Justice Teaching, a program started by former Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice R. Fred Lewis that puts legal professionals in Florida schools to teach about the American legal system and the Constitution.
“The Justice Teaching activity on constitutional rights that was conducted at Cedar Hills Elementary School is consistent with our efforts to broaden civics-based education and develop critical thinking skills among our students,” Dr. Nikolai P. Vitti, superintendent of Duval County Public Schools, said in a statement to TheBlaze. “The lesson builds awareness of First Amendment rights through a partnership with an association of local attorneys. Our possible concern rests with a follow-up activity that may have been conducted after the lesson. A review and investigation will occur to determine the facts of that assignment.”

Ipswich Middle School Principal Fabrizio Cancels ‘Honors Night’ Because It Might Upset & Be “Devastating” to Students Who Didn’t Make The Grade
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN: EDUCATION HONOR EDITION:
What is going on in out schools? The latest head scratching incident comes from Ipswich, Massachusetts. David Fabrizio, Ipswich Middle School Principal, has canceled ‘Honors Night’ because it might make some students feel uncomfortable and upset who did not make the grade. ARE YOU SERIOUS? David Fabrizio wrote in a letter sent to parents that, “honors night, which can be a great sense of pride for the recipients’ families, can also be devastating to a child …” INCREDIBLE. Devastating to average students, are you friggin stupid? How about devastating to those who actually made the effort to succeed? This is what passes as a principal into today’s liberal public schools. They care more about how some one feels who fails, rather than rewarding those who actually succeed. I would ask this foolish and misguided principal, why give grades? Schools are supposed to uplift students, not gum down the education to the lowest common denominator. Let’s celebrate underachieving, way to go Principal Fabrizio. Welcome to the Nanny state collective, where liberals think its only fair that all are treated the same, even though all do not put forth the same effort.
In a letter sent home to parents last week, Fabrizio said that it is the school’s job to monitor both academic and social emotional growth. Concentrating on grades, “as strange as it sounds, can impinge upon the learning process,” he wrote.
“The honors night, which can be a great sense of pride for the recipients’ families, can also be devastating to a child who has worked extremely hard in a difficult class but who, despite growth, has not been able to maintain a high grade point average,” Fabrizio wrote.
Fabrizio emphasized that the school hasn’t ended honors recognition and that it believes in high achievement in all aspects of students’ lives.
“We are still honoring success, we are just doing it in a different form,” he said.
However, the idea of ending honors night isn’t sitting well with many parents.
“I think the school should be committed to excellence and not mediocrity,” Gillis said. “I was shocked because to get on the honor roll, you have to work hard. They shouldn’t cancel (honors night) because somebody’s feelings could be hurt. Life is a competition, and they should start competing.”
Kevin Whooley, who has a daughter in eighth grade, said many parents are “dumbfounded” as to why the honors night needed to be canceled.
“They have had honors night here for years, and there is no reason not to continue it,” he said. “It is like having a sports banquet for those who play sports. Not everyone makes honors. You can’t be politically correct about everything.”
I remember a world, not too long ago, where schools rewarded students who showed effort and success. I remember an academic environment when those who went the extra mile were rewarded for their merit. Not in today’s Middle School academia. What a message this sends to an impressionable child at such a young age … STRIVE TO BE AVERAGE.
We second the idea of the Jawa Report and contact this school and let them know your opinion. This school is not doing their students any favors. What a message, Let’s be average. The contact Info, in case you want to let this Principal know how stupid and unfair this policy is to the children who deserve recognition: (remember, be civil)

Just curious … wouldn’t it be more devastating to the so-called average students if the smart kids got their awards in front of them at an assembly in front of the whole school, rather than a special night of just the honor’s students? The principals explanation of why he made this change makes no sense other than the fact that he must feel its not fair for some kids to get awards and others not. A note to Principal Fabrizio, life is not fair and you are doing none of these students any favors.
