Eleven Police Cars at Kazen Middle School to Prevent a Walkout

Scared and upset, teachers are reporting that eleven school police cars - they carry guns these days - are at Kazen Middle School on the southside of San Antonio.

Kazen Middle School is located near Palo Alto College, and my sources believe that principal Steven Deazey has likely ordered this show of force to "asustar" the students, preventing them from the possibility of a Walkout.

Yesterday, the teachers were told to "let them out," referring to purported rumors that students were going to leave the school in response to pending immigration reform debates in Congress, and likely, hearing about walkout at high schools throughout San Antonio. Many of the students at Kazen Middle School have immigrant parents.

Today, however, the morning PA announcement relayed to the students that any student leaving the school would go to court and face a $250 fine.

The teachers say the heavy police presence seems to be a singular action on the part of Principal Deazey, because the administrators at the school didn't know "it was going to happen."
