New Jersey - Boxes Of Records Seized In Raid Of Lakewood Special Needs School

Lakewood, NJ - A school for special children in Lakewood was one of several locations targeted today by authorities, as law enforcement agents bearing empty cardboard boxes swarmed the office of the Lakewood Board of Education, the School for Children with Hidden Intelligence and the office of Mark A. Siegel, executive director of the school.

According to reports in the Asbury Park, law enforcement agents first visited the Ocean County Health Department’s Women, Infants and Children Program and the CHEMED health clinic by mistake at approximately 3:45 PM.  The Lakewood Board of Education had originally been located at an office next door, before moving to new offices several years ago.

Stacks of boxes were removed from the SCHI building on Oak Street and loaded into a white van with New Jersey license plates.  The school, which educates over 100 special needs children from Lakewood, as well as other districts, has been criticized because most of its students come from Lakewood’s Jewish community and for its steep tuition which is in excess of $90,000.

A worker who asked not to be identified and was in the SCHI building when the raid took place said that he has been working in the building for close to a year and that while many of the students are from Lakewood, the school does not only cater to Jewish students and that no religious instruction takes place during regular school hours.

“This is the most legit place you can find,” the worker told VIN News. “They do everything by the book here.”

A report that had been previously released by the New Jersey Department of Education criticized SCHI for its lack of black and Hispanic students.  That report was later retracted.

“The truth of the matter is, we could not find a parent in our community to say that, ‘I wanted (my child) to go to SCHI and I was denied,” admitted Reverend Glenn Wilson, the head of Lakewood U.N.I.T.E which advocates for the interests of public school families in Lakewood.

FBI operates within Dept of Justice under authority of the Atty General. She was supported by the "askanim", hoping that she would review the rubashkin matter. In fact she's done nothing, and forces Pollard with severe needless restrictions. She Holder and 0bama are cut from the same cloth. It was the liberal jews who fought for their civil rights. And this is the appreciation; all under Barak Hussein Obama.... Rubashkin. Deal,Kiryas Yoel,lakewood.... Only going to get worse under Hillary. Vote trump.

That's what Christopher St Lawrence and Moses Stern said.

Yidden, be careful. The government is targeting us, because we are rich white middle class suburbanites in their eyes. A fine prize as opposed to some low life criminal from the hood.

Arresting the students?

No it was the pressure from the democratic congress to put him away and the pressure from the Republican controlled House and Senate which forced his release.

You have no idea what you're talking about. Defense secretary Caspar Weinberger orchestrated his mockery of a trial and the conviction. Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney opposed any clemeny.

For the record Obama did not release Jonathon Pollard, He was released by the letter of the law as he completed his sentence, When he was sentenced, a life in prison ended at 30 years.
