School anti-exercise initiatives

Somehow this just seems apocalyptic.
The father, as a pedestrian, was told he had to stand in line with the cars.
Gawker, 19 November 2013 (hat tip: NC)
A Tennessee father was arrested last week after objecting to a school policy prohibiting him from picking up his children on foot ahead of parents picking their children up by car.
Footage recorded last Thursday by Jim Howe's fiancée shows the father of two trying to reason with South Cumberland Elementary's School Resource Officer Avery Aytes by explaining to him that it makes no sense for him to wait behind a mile-long line of cars just so he can walk his kids home.
What these local police foolishness stories usually seem to add up to is authorities unwillingness to brook any arguments with their decisions.

There is also a racial angle and question/accusation to the story if I remember correctly.
