Do These Look Like the Faces Of Parents Who Planted Drugs In The Car Of Their Son’s Elementary School PTA President Because They Were Mad At The Way He Was Treated At School?
LA Times – A couple of California attorneys were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly planting a bag of drugs in the car of the president of their child’s Parent Teacher’s Association at the Plaza Vista Elementary School. Irvine police said that Kent Wycliffe Easter, 38, and Jill Bjorkholm Easter, 38, conspired to frame Kelli Peters by putting Vicodin, Percocet, marijuana and a used marijuana pipe behind the front seat of her car.The duo sought revenge on Mrs Peters because they believed the woman wasn’t properly supervising their son, according to police, and resorted to extreme measures to get her fired – and imprisoned. Their feud is said to date back two years when Mr Kent filed a civil complaint after Ms Peters – then a school volunteer – for allegedly locking his son out of the school for 20 minutes during an after-school tennis lesson, according to the Los Angeles Times. The feud then seems to have intensified after Mrs Easter was asked by the school board not to take the matter to police. Mrs Easter then got a retraining order against Ms Peters, claiming that she was harassing her son and had even threatened to kill her. She claimed that Ms Peters ‘will stop at nothing to silence my son’ and had been calling him psychotic and unstable to other parents. ‘She is stalking me and attempting to intimidate me at my son’s school and while I run errands in Irvine,’ she alleged.
KFC blogged this story yesterday, but I’m not sure all the details of this case were known yet. Like this is one of those rare instances where you need to read the entire article to really appreciate just how preposterous this whole thing is. It’s like the Hatfields vs. the McCoys taking place in an elementary school setting. 3 years of bad blood between this family and the President of the PTA all because of the way some tennis practice went down when he was in the first grade. I’m talking lawsuits, civil complaints, intimidation, restraining orders, bullying etc. Like when I first heard the story I couldn’t imagine why parents would ever try to frame a PTA member. But after reading it all I’m surprised they didn’t just try to murder the bitch. That’s how intense the feud was.
PS – I know what people are thinking. Why didn’t these two nutbags just move their kid to a different school? Well duh. Because then that smug PTA president wins.
