A Wyoming high school was placed on lockdown after a student refused to put on a mask and was arrested. Grace Smith had already been suspended twice from Laramie High School for refusing to wear a mask. The last time that she refused to wear a mask, she refused to leave the school, and the police were called. She was taken out in handcuffs and issued a $500 citation.
As the situation unfolded, an announcement was made over the loudspeaker stating, “we are in a lockdown; please stay in your rooms.”

If Grace continues to refuse to wear a mask, she will ultimately be suspended from school. At this time, she has no intention of backing down from what she believes in.
“I’m growing up in a country where I’m supposed to have my God-given rights to protect, and they’re being taken away. Everybody has the freedom to wear a mask if they choose, but I believe everybody also has the right to not wear a mask if they choose.” – Grace Smith.
The Smith family has hired an attorney to fight back. A GiveSendGo Fundraiser has been created to help with the expenses.
“Grace is a high school junior. She is a beautiful young lady who is kind, caring, and compassionate. She loves to dance and theater and is a good student. Grace has chosen to exercise her rights and attend school without wearing a mask. The local school board has voted to enforce a universal mask policy that we believe is unlawful and in violation of the constitution of the state of Wyoming,”
“Grace has endured suspensions and was arrested for not wearing a mask. She has also been targeted by peers and school staff members for exercising her rights. Grace is raising funds to help with the legal cost of defending her civil liberties and the civil liberties of other students in Wyoming who are enduring the same unlawful treatment. By supporting this fight for their liberties, you are helping ensure the rights of every citizen of the state of Wyoming.”

Don’t comply…they can’t arrest the whole school!
Too many brainwashed dullards that don’t understand this and just willing to bend over for anything and comply.
What happened to Wyoming? It used to be full of free thinking independent people.
The COVID boogie man took over people’s minds. It’s Boogie Man Fever!
Fear, they have taken the koolaid and believe anyone that does not mask or does not take the vaccine is a danger to society and many believe it is better if those people are exterminated. This fear mongering only leads in one direction .
They get PAID to suffocate our kids…I’m going through the same thing in Ohio. We don’t have a mask mandate BUT the school is enforcing one to get ELEVEN MILLION DOLLARS in funds. The teachers unions are disgusting.
This girl is a hero. She broke no law and this is an illegal arrest. The cop needs arrested. How much federal money is the school getting for suffocating the kids?
EXACTLY! My school got $11 MILLION…Tuesday I start HOMESCHOOL!
Disgusting … What about the kid in the background with the mask on his chin?
No equity in the Law! …
Her Fortitude is commendable . a true leader . May God bless her.
NAZIS in Wyoming of all placed. The public school system is the enemy of a freedom loving Americans. You children should not be in the Marxist indoctrination centers.
Isn’t it Renz law firm who is winning these suits against the schools? Call him!
I no longer wear a mask when shopping in Commifornia, of all places, and never had an issue. Most store clerks get it. I’ve only had 2 of them ask me to put one on. Hard to believe Wyoming would do this.
“They can’t arrest the whole school!” You’re right, maybe they simply want you dead.
Many Dem lawmakers and MSM have been calling for the death of unvaccinated and people opposed to masking.
We’re looking at the latest Multi Millionaire and the city and the school will pay out the nose for this.
Arresting a Minor instead of sending her home and expelling her from school. The Police will likely not file charges so they can claim nothing happened but, that will not change the fact that she was arrested and detained AKA literal kidnapping, a good defense attorney will win this easily. AN arrest for not wearing a mask has no formal law backing it.
In Wyoming of all places. The Communists need to be driven out.
The Laramie cops like to arrest innocent women who are not threatening. They are incompetent and arrest people without even doing follow-ups to see if they had a reason to be arrested. The local government in Laramie is totally Lib, despite most of the state being conservative because it is a college town.
Sue and win! Then sue again. These authoritarian jerseys need to pay.
Congratulations young lady you have more balls than 5 grown men. I support and stand by you 1,000 %.
And the idiot school cops are following orders. Just like the Nazis did in WW11.
Wow. The Sheriff is a SHEEP!!!
She thinks she is funny. But it’s not. Little do you know you had to have many shots before you started school. Not just for your safety but for others as well. Suck it up buttercup and wear the mask, if not for yourself for others. Parents should be charge too for not compiling also. You have a responsibility to teach your children they have rules and laws to follow if they like them or not.
