Arrested and Strip Searched after his 4-year-old drew a picture of him holding a gun

Canada: Dad arrested over daughter’s gun drawing

Police arrested a Kitchener, Ont., father outside his daughter’s school because the four-year-old drew a picture of him holding a gun.

Jessie Sansone told the Record newspaper that he was in shock when he was arrested Wednesday and taken to a police station for questioning over the drawing. He was also strip-searched.

“This is completely insane. My daughter drew a gun on a piece of paper at school,” he said.

Officials told the newspaper the move was necessary to ensure there were no guns accessible by children in the family’s home.

Officials also searched the man’s home and took his wife and three children down to the police station for questioning by Family and Children’s Services. Officials were especially concerned because the the girl who drew the pictures said her dad used the gun “to shoot bad guys and monsters.”
