Several school districts in Southern California warned parents this weekend that flutes and recorders given to children through a nonprofit music program may have been contaminated with bodily fluids.
At least one district specified that those fluids could have been semen. At least 13 school districts in Southern California were potentially affected.
Now that is just plain gross. What has happened to our society? How do people get this evil? And why do this in the first place? INSANITY!
The WashPo reports:
Several school districts in Southern California warned parents this weekend that flutes and recorders given to children through a nonprofit music program may have been contaminated with bodily fluids. At least one district specified that those fluids could have been semen.
Local, state and federal agencies were investigating a male music teacher who visited schools in Southern California through a program called Flutes Across the World, according to updates from the Saugus Union School District, which serves the Santa Clarita area.
“The performer distributes a flutelike musical instrument made of PVC pipe or bamboo to students during a music lesson, and the allegation is that he contaminated some of these instruments with semen,” Saugus Union Superintendent Joan Lucid said in an email to parents on Saturday. “These allegations are deeply concerning, and I realize they raise many questions.”
The California Department of Justice and the U.S. Postal Service were among the agencies investigating the program, the district said. Lucid said children were never alone with the music specialist, who was not a district employee.
The Saugus district urged students who had an instrument from the Flutes Across the World program to place it inside a paper bag and contact the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Office.
Other schools besides Los Angeles USD named that might have been affected are Courreges Elementary School in Fountain Valley and Sonora Elementary School in Costa Mesa.
Parents were outraged, and with plenty of reason.
Concerned parent Tudy Balta returned two of the decorated PVC pipes converted into flutes to the Fountain Valley Police Department.
“My kids have brought these flutes home. They’re putting their mouths on it, and they’re playing with these instruments,” she told CBS2 News. “And for someone to contaminate it with their bodily fluids, that’s disgusting. My kids could’ve gotten sick.”
“For me it’s really concerning for me, as a parent, because I don’t know if like three months down the line, if they’re going to get sick,” another parent told CBS2.
Many who encountered the so far unidentified suspect felt that he was rather creepy.
Katrina Leiva said that when she asked her child what the man who gave him the flute was like, he said, “Weird, completely weird. Gave me the creeps.” So “weird,” in fact, that even her son’s teacher was put off by the man.
This is a situation that no one could predict, or prepare for. But it is a symptom of a degenerating society. The Apostle Paul told Timothy that society would wax worse and worse. This man has brought extreme damage. Flutes Across the World has had its reputation tarnished. School children have been frightened. What a mess.
I hope that he does some hard time for this. It is serious.
