Wow!  It’s definitely an interesting way to prove a point!

  • A Texas mom is facing charges for posing as her 13-year-old daughter at the child’s middle school.
  • 30-year-old Casey Garcia posted a YouTube video entering the school wearing a yellow hoodie, glasses, and a black facemask.  She said teachers and faculty didn’t recognize her until the final period.
  • Garcia says she did it to prove a point that “we need better security at our schools”, claiming that it would be easy for a potential school shooter to enter unnoticed.
  • However, the school district didn’t appreciate her little social experiment.  She’s been arrested and charged with criminal trespass and tampering with government records.
  • Does Garcia make a relevant point about security – or was she just trying to go viral?  Would you ever want to go back to high school?
