We have a program here through the Anaheim P.D.. Junior Cadets. It’s an after school program once a week, generally filled with students who have trouble at school and/or at home. Students who get in trouble a lot are usually refered to the program. I hear it’s a pretty good program. One of my students’ parents asked for their son to be in it, because they had a son a few years go through it, and they thought it was a very valuable thing. From what I hear, it’s run by some Anaheim police officers. They do a lot of running, pushups, and things like that.
Last week C got kicked out of Junior Cadets. Kicked out! I’ve never heard of anyone being kicked out of it before. Another student in the program said he was making racial slurs against Asian people, and then against Black people (remember, he IS black). I was also told when they asked him to leave the room, he refused, and they had to forcefully remove him. He was hanging on to desks and whatever he could to stay in the room (defiant ’till the end).
