Sparks Fly When Principal Invites Extremist To Career Day [Video]
Principal Sparked Outrage By Inviting Anti-Police Activist To ‘Talk’ To Children On Career Day
A Chicago principle, Mary Beth Cunat, personally invited an anti-police activist, who reportedly promotes violence against police on his Twitter, to be a speaker at her school on career day. The principal claims that she intended the activist, Ethan Ethos, to talk to the young children about his poetry but says it took a strange turn.
Ethos, who is known for his extreme views against police, has praised the death of officers and refers to himself as an activist. While we were unable to find any of Ethos’ ‘poetry’ online, and his Twitter account has since been suspended, we did locate some chatter about his previous anti-police rhetoric.
According to Fox News, After a Chicago police commander was shot and killed execution-style in February, Ethos posted online, “F HIM [and] HIS FAMILY.”
Ethos also posts the term “CPDK” which apparently stands for “Chicago Police Department Killer.” The extremist referred to cops as “pigs” and once posted about killing rich people.
Ethos apparently has shown hatred for police because he claimed a Chicago police officer murdered his friend with a stun gun.
In an apology letter to parents, Cunat wrote that she brought in Ethos to talk to students about his poetry and civic work, but things went off the rails.
“He told them all the police are bad and all the police wanted to kill people,” said Linda Ricciardi, who had three children listen to Ethos on career day.
As Written By Chicago WGN9:
A meeting was held at the school regarding the incident. People on both sides of the issue remained calm and respectful but defended their side.
One supporter said while she wasn’t forced out by the district, the former principal didn’t want to leave.
“She started receiving personal threats. When the threats became personal she had no choice but to resign,” the woman said.
Cunat was a principal at the school for eight years.
Ethos was invited to the school to speak to sixth through eighth-grade students about becoming civically minded, but parents say he veered off topic and used threatening language about police.
A number of Chicago police officers and their families call the Wildwood neighborhood their home.
“And when the gentleman goes off course and starts bashing, I don’t care who it is. Yes, my husband is a policeman, but I don’t care who you’re bashing. You should not bash anyone in front of children,” one parent said.
How would someone, like Ethos, really contribute to a career day event? If this was your child’s school, how would you react? Let us know in the comments below.
