An American woman has been arrested after impersonating her daughter at school for an entire day. Casey Garcia spent a day at school wearing a loose-fitting T-shirt, mask, and backpack. She attended several classes and only at the end of the day did the teachers realize that she was a 30-year-old woman, not a teenager.
According to The Mirror, Casey wanted to draw attention to the insecurity at that school in San Elizario, Texas. The woman photographed herself most of the day and posted the photos 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, emphasizing that after just over seven hours of studying, the teacher found it strange that this was not her student.
“I tell you we need better security in our schools,” says Casey who, despite breaking the law, never thought the situation would “get this far.” “I just wanted to prove something about the safety of our children,” the American said. “The only thing I want to do is prevent the next mass shooting.”
Casey is accused of trespassing on private property and obstruction of justice.
After the photos Casey posted went viral, many parents complained to the school that the episode was actually exposing some security vulnerabilities.
