Hidden-camera video obtained by NewsChannel 5 Investigates reveals a recent closed-door reception with Tennessee's governor and a key education ally who repeatedly mocks the intelligence of public school teachers and questions whether they really care about what is best for their students.

Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Michigan's ultra-conservative Hillsdale College, also takes aim at diversity efforts in higher education, claiming people in those positions have education degrees because they are "easy" and "you don't have to know anything."

Throughout the nearly two-hour video, Gov. Bill Lee offers only praise for Arnn, who Lee has invited to set up charter schools across Tennessee. The Republican governor never takes issue with the Hillsdale president's remarks, nor does he defend the state's 80,000 public school teachers or the state's teacher training programs.

"It boggles the mind that someone could be so evil and so ignorant at the same time and so cowardly as to say nothing and not stand up for a single Tennessee child or a Tennessee teacher," Johnson said.

I was wondering when we're supposed to receive our yearbooks for the 2021-2022 school year
Hey y’all! My name is Donna Walker & I am a liaison for the National Guard! I recently graduated with my MBA from King University and also own a marketing company on the side!
I am now assigned to Blount County & Hertiage High School will be one of my assigned schools! 📢
I can’t wait to meet all the staff & students this upcoming school year. Please reach out anytime with questions, concerns or just to say 👋
To prevent a civil rights violation lawsuit, school districts and board members should not ban or block any comments on their pages. Board members often maintain pages to provide information about their school district and permit and invite the public to comment.

In a decision that should serve as a warning to any school board member who communicates by social media, a federal appeals court ruled that a public official who established an official government page had created a “public forum” and subsequently violated the First Amendment rights of an individual who she banned from the page for posting negative comments.

Never allow anyone to violate your rights! Know that it's your First Amendment right to take photographs or videos of things that are plainly visible from public spaces, including federal buildings, transportation facilities, and police and other government officials carrying out their duties.

I hope that our students are being taught that when in public spaces, they have the First Amendment right to photograph anything that is in plain view. That includes publicly accessible areas of any government buildings. They also need to learn that the Supreme Court has ruled that police officer cannot confiscate or demand to view their digital photographs or video without a warrant. Police officers are often not trained properly and don't know that they CAN NOT delete your photographs or video under any circumstances. I have seen many court cases where officers have faced felony charges of evidence tampering as well as obstruction and theft for taking a photographer’s memory card. Unfortunately, law enforcement officers have been known to ask people to stop taking photographs of public places. Those who fail to comply have sometimes been harassed, detained, and falsely arrested which can ultimately cost the city millions of dollars when being sued for a civil rights violation. Through litigation, public education, and other forms of advocacy, the ACLU has defended the rights of photographers and all camera-wielding individuals to document freely. So please teach these youngsters that taking photographs and videos of things that are plainly visible in public spaces is a constitutional right—and that includes filming the police and other government officials carrying out their duties.
This just goes to show how ignorant some police officers are. This is shameful and an embarrassment to all the educated and properly trained law enforcement officers who actually know the laws and the rights that we have as free Americas.

Since when did we become N**i Germany?

Watch how a Blount County deputy bans freedom of travel in his neighborhood and makes a complete fool of himself. 😫😫😫

Know your rights, people. Because if you don't, these tyrants will TRY to strip them all away from us.
Wish y’all cared as much for all the sports like y’all do for football, basketball, baseball, and softball.
Is there a class of 92 group? 30 years....
We could barely hear .
Outlier’s Advantage: ACT Prep Academy is hosting a FREE Mock ACT on Sat., May 7th. Students will receive their scores before they leave, and they will get to keep their tests for their review. This is open to all students. Limited seating is available. Sign up directly from our homepage at www.ACTprep.com
I would highly recommend that everyone go watch some of these First Amendment Auditor videos and learn something.
Know your rights so they aren't being violated!!
Anyone living anywhere in Blount County can take advantage of the free clinic, which also includes vaccines. So there is no excuse for anybody having kittens! Sorry, dog owners, the funding for these clinics is for cats and kittens only. If you are in need of low-cost spay/neuter, or vaccine services, I suggest contacting PPAW. (If you are low-income ask then about a discount.)
With all these threats of school shootings and people wanting to harm themselves or others. I feel not only heritage but all schools should have an area dedicated for people who feel this way so they can safely talk about it and no I'm not talking about a counselors office where half the time there not there. I mean a place,in the school,they can take a hall pass to no matter what and go and talk or calm down and think. Where there is someone in there at all times. And will actually listen and care about how the kids feel.
Lance Davis pulled out his cell phone and recorded what happened when White County Sheriff's Deputies went into his home. They said they had a tip that a fugitive was inside. Davis said did not know the man they were looking for and officers left after they did not find anything. Officers illegally searched his home without a warrant.

You can only advocate for your rights properly when you understand what rights you have. Too many people in Tennessee don’t understand their protections under federal and state laws. That lack of information leaves them vulnerable to underhanded tactics commonly used by law enforcement. For example, did you know you don’t have to let the police into your home just because they turn up knocking at your door? Hell, you don't have any legal obligation to even answer the door if you don't want to. Did you know you can ask the courts to throw out evidence police gathered illegally by violating your rights?

Unless you invite them inside, officers need a written warrant to gain entry into your home. Unless you give officers permission to enter your home or they show up with a warrant, police cannot just come into your home to search for whatever they want. When officers do present a warrant, make sure it is properly executed and accurate. Small mistakes on the warrant can invalidate the evidence officers find during a search and help you keep them out of your home.

The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution protects us against unreasonable searches and seizures. However, law enforcement officials are often ignorant of the laws, whether from lack of knowledge or training or in an over-eager attempt to curtail criminal activity. Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that you will have access to a criminal defense attorney while a search is being conducted of your home. Therefore, it is beneficial to know the principles of a home search so that you can later discuss any possible violations of your Fourth Amendment rights with your criminal defense attorney.

Police cannot search your home without a warrant unless you give consent. It is always in your best interest to not consent to a search without a warrant. If you do give consent and it is later found that the police mislead you regarding who or what is being investigated, any evidence found may be excluded. The police officer does not have the obligation to tell you that your consent could lead to criminal prosecution.

If the police do have a warrant, the Fourth Amendment requires that it must describe the place that will be searched and what evidence they will seize. Essentially, the warrant must be specific enough that any officer would be able to determine the exact area described and the exact evidence that they are looking to seize. For example, if the warrant allows a search of the home, the officer is probably out of bounds if he or she also searches your detached storage shed. Further, the inspection must be confined to spaces that could possibly contain the relevant evidence. If an officer is searching for a gun, he or she cannot search kitchen drawers that are obviously too small to contain the gun he or she is searching for.

And remember....Always, always, always videotape any interactions with the police. It's for your own protection.
