An American woman was arrested after impersonating her daughter at school for an entire day. Casey Garcia spent a day at the school, dressed in a loose shirt, mask and backpack. She attended several classes and only at the end of the day did the teachers realize that it was a 30-year-old woman, not a teenager.
According to the Mirror, Casey wanted to draw attention to the lack of security at that school in San Elizario, Texas. The woman filmed herself for most of the day and posted the images on social media. In the videos, teachers can be seen complaining to the ‘young woman’ to turn off the device.
“I’ve been here all day, face-to-face with the teachers and they didn’t notice”, laments the woman, assuring that only after more than seven hours of classes did a teacher find it strange that this was not a student of hers.
“I’m telling you, we need better security in our schools,” says Casey who, despite breaking the law, never thought the situation would “go that far”. “I just wanted to prove something about the safety of our children. The only thing I want to do is prevent the next mass shooting,” said the American.
Casey is charged with trespassing on private property and obstructing justice.
After the images released by Casey went viral, several parents complained to the school that, in fact, the episode reveals some security weaknesses.
