After being punished nearly forty times for breaking rules, an eight-year-old girl in Tampa Bay fiercely told her school board that they should go to jail for forcing her and other children to wear masks against their choice.
Fiona Lashells was filmed reading a speech in front of the board in Florida, pointing out how masks don’t prevent the spread of viruses effectively because they become dirty and prompt people to constantly touch their faces.
“Just because I get suspended for not wearing a mask isn’t going to change my mind. You can keep suspending me, I still have the right not to wear a mask,” the young girl declared.
“It is not fair that I am getting punished because you guys, the school board are not following the law,” the second-grader continued, adding “I’m still going to stand up for what I believe in.”
“I hope you all go to jail for doing this to me,” Fiona urged, adding that her family is proud of her and finishing with “your rules suck.”
As noted by Fox 8 News last week, the school has repeatedly suspended Fiona for not wearing the mask in classes, and finally told her parents that she is going to fail because she has missed so much school.
