EHLENA FRY AND WONDER THE SERVICE DOG. FOR HER, IT’S A LONG WAY FROM CALCUTTA, INDIA.
Oh, boy. Here’s a second post on service dogs in three days.
Man’s best friend is surely creating some problems.
But I have an idea on how to fix it. First, here’s the story.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – A Michigan girl goes before the U.S. Supreme Court Monday in her fight to have her service dog at school with her.
Ehlena Fry and her parents are suing her Jackson County school district after they refused to let the little girl into class with her service dog.
It’s a case that could impact kids around the country.
The ACLU made a video to show how important Fry’s dog is when her fight began in 2012.
She has cerebral palsy and uses her dog– Wonder– to help with a number of tasks.
Napoleon Community Schools told the 8-year-old that they had human aides to help her, and her dog wasn’t welcome.
Lower courts ruled against the Frys before the Supreme Court agreed in June to take up the case.
Her family says the school broke ADA rules by denying Ehlena her independence at school and discriminated against her in a public place.
“A lot of people with disabilities that’s very important, you know, to have some sort of control over their life. And so a service animal, even for young children, gives them that constant in their life that they may not have otherwise had. You don’t take your parents to school with you but you can take your serve dog to school with you and that’s a constant safety,” said Stacy Fry, Ehlena’s mother.
The ACLU says the ruling, which will most likely come next year, could impact students with disabilities across the country.
The U.S. Supreme Court hearing is at 10:00 a.m. Monday.
There are two issues here. The first arises from the observation that the parents of little Ehlena are white and she’s not.
Was she adopted from some third world country? Did the adults know she was a cripple? It turns out that she was adopted from an orphanage in Calcutta, India. I suspect they knew she was diseased.
There’s some real issues here that we’ve discussed on this site many times before: White couples should NEVER adopt nonwhite children. There are plenty of needy white children in this country where whites are going extinct. Adopt or foster one of them if you’re white. Let nonwhite couples adopt nonwhite children into their own communities.
Additionally, to bring a nonwhite kid into your country to soak up scarce medical resources is just unconscionable. Sick and diseased American children are getting f*cked by the do-gooder Fry adults.
The second issue is the damnable doctrine that do-gooders can use the government to impose on the rest of us.
Every regular reader knows how much I love dogs and other animals. I am pro-dog. Every child should have a dog and every dog should have a loving home. I have a record of featuring and fighting against animal cruelty.
However, there should be no one size fits all policy in regard to service dogs. In this case, the school, concerned about the other children and their safety and educational needs, has ruled against Wonder being with Elhena all day.
Local officials should be allowed to make these decisions. The Supreme Court has no business hearing this case.
I have a feeling that the Court is going to rule that service dogs MUST be allowed into schools. That will encourage every kid with a dog to claim rights under the law to bring their dogs to school.
The schools are chaotic enough with Washington’s one size fits all policies like common core that have taken control of education away from local officials and put it in the hands of distant bureaucrats.
If the Frys disagree with local officials, then let them work to elect new officials who will allow Wonder to attend class.
What I am proposing was common sense and law until liberals took control of the courts and wrested power away from local people who know their particular circumstances better than a distant bureaucrat.
The flag above is the flag of the National States Rights party. States rights have been quashed, but people are ever more disgusted with the oligarchs and elites who control us from the comfort of their plush abodes in exclusive areas. We need more state’s rights and local control.
Our current federal tyranny is symbolized by a crippled kid and a nice looking dog. Good luck to both of them, but not at the expense of the rights of other kids to enjoy a dog free zone if that’s what their parents want, as expressed by LOCAL officials.
There’s more background on this story at the ACLU, which is pushing for Wonder to be in the classroom. There are also more pictures of Wonder, who by the way is a Goldendoodle.
