Thank You Daily Kos

To the good people at , you have been  very kind to our family and we appreciate this front page endorsement.

dsnodgrass first wrote about his autistic son being entrapped by undercover cops planted in his son’s high school on Feb. 1, 2013. Doug wrote 30 diaries over the next two years keeping us updated as the story was picked up by and made the subject of a documentary. Doug and his wife Catherine are heroes for taking the system on head first and being instrumental in the banning of undercover drug stings in schools.

The triumphant smiles of Doug, Jesse & Catherine Snodgrass at Jesse’s high school graduation

As you can see in the photo above, Jesse graduated from his high school even after being set up, arrested and incarcerated to be used as financial fodder for the Temecula Juvenile Detention business. The photo celebrates a strong family that triumphed and shut down a money-making operation that required special needs students to be thrown under the bus. Doug and his family, with the help of our amazing , steeled themselves to stop this. Many families have been deeply hurt by these policies, but Doug and Catherine halted that. Heroes.

    Hi Mr. and Mrs. Snodgrass,
    I assume you never consented to the school disclosing your son’s school records to law enforcement. Have you sued the school for violations under FERPA?
    Best regards,
    Chris

    Doug and Catherine Snodgrass, you are a pure inspiration! Your son is so lucky to have you two as parents and I know you both are lucky to be parents of a wonderful young man like Jesse. Thank you for your example of being brave, unrelenting parents in standing up for your child’s rights.
