Gov. McCrory ducks little kids delivering an education petition to play catch

McCrory

Yesterday, on June 10th, a parade of young children pulling red wagons filled with over 16,000 signatures of North Carolinians asking Governor McCrory to protect our public schools attempted to deliver the signatures to the Governor's Office. The action was part of a rally sponsored by Progress North Carolina, Public Schools First NC and Action NC. As the children lined up at the door with stacks of petitions in hand, a secretary came out to inform the crowd that Gov. McCrory was busy and in a meeting until 5:00 PM. However, a pair of women walking by to join the rally noticed the Governor playing catch with a state trooper and Chief of Staff Thomas Stith, not 50 feet around the corner from the rally, outside a side entrance to the state Capitol. You can see the photos after the jump, as well as photos showing the time stamps proving when they were taken. My question: he knew the kids were there. He ducked them. Why did he go then go outside and very publicly diss these children? What kind of person needs to do that?

Here are the photos taken by Rose Ann H. and Rose H. at 4:42 PM on June 10th:
