Zero Tolerance= Zero Common Sense
Zero tolerance policies are turning schools into zero common sense institutions. It is not an exaggeration to state that the public schools are becoming the bastions for conditioning our young people to live in a fascist police state devoid of common sense, any understanding of child psychology and any semblance of enjoying civil liberties.
Mama Don’t Let Your Boys Grow Up to Be Soldiers, They Might Think About Guns
Daniel McClaine Jr., whose goal is to enlist in the military upon graduation, was suspended for displaying a picture of a gun on his school laptop. McClaine, a freshman at Poston Butte High School located in suburban Phoenix, said he saved the picture as his desktop background on his school-issued computer. An alert teacher noticed the picture of a gun, turned McClaine in and bravely saved the school from further harm. The picture shows an AK-47 on top of a flag. McClaine said the school initially suspended him for three days Friday. After the media became involved, his suspension was reduced to “time served.”
It Is Illegal for 6 Year Old Kids To Save the World
In Loveland, Colorado, school officials at Mary Blair Elementary School have suspended, Alex Evans, a second grade student for throwing a make believe grenade. You read that correctly, Evans was suspended for throwing an invisible, pretend grenade followed by a reported “pshhh” sound. It is unclear from the news reports if Evans threw a pretend flash grenade or one containing shrapnel.
The Evans case is the latest in the sheer lunacy of “zero tolerance” policies that continue to be applied in this ridiculous manner because school officials are never disciplined for these insane decisions. Evans, clearly on the path to being a career criminal stated “I was trying to save people and I just can’t believe I got dispended.” Alex apparently doesn’t understand his suspension any better than he can pronounce it. Alex said that he was trying to save the world from evil hiding in box. Someone should have told Alex that stupid was also hiding in the principal’s office.
The moron in charge of this lunatic school is Principal Valerie Lara-Black who expressed her zero tolerance policy for make believe grenades in the fight against evil located in a box. It is not clear if Lara-Black called in a imaginary bomb squad in order to defuse the imaginary grenade which was thrown into the imaginary box of evil. I just wonder if Lara-Black obtained her administrative credential from an imaginary university.
Turning Your Hat Into a Deadly Weapon
David Morales, 8, thought that he had put together a cool hat to honor our brave American troops when his class was asked to construct special hats for a get-together with another second-grade class from a nearby school.
Officials at Tiogue School in Coventry, Rhode Island, however, quickly banned the hat. The reason? He placed a few small plastic soldiers on the rim of the hat and the tiny soldiers had tiny GUNS. The school has a zero tolerance for guns. David was forced to wear a plain baseball cap instead on the visit with the other school. Superintendent Kenneth Di Pietro insists that “the issue for us was, can it be done in a way that didn’t violate the zero-tolerance for weapons? Nothing was being done to limit patriotism, creativity, other than find an alternative to a weapon.” Yes, Mr. Superintendent, a plain hat display a lot creativity. Someone should explain to this guardian in charge of dumbing down children at the Tiogue school that it was guns, big guns, which gives this headmaster the freedoms he has today.
School officials in Montgomery County rescinded of a 6-year-old Rodney Lynch, a Silver Spring boy who they said pointed his finger like a gun and said, “Pow,” agreeing to clear school records of an incident they had described as a threat “to shoot a student.” School officials only agreed to remove the blight on the student’s record after the family obtained an attorney to represent Rodney. Principal Annette Folkes said that it is her duty to protect the other children from the harms that can be caused by a gun. I am certain that Folkes will now instruct students to walk to and from the playground with their loaded hands holstered securely in their pockets.
Rules for Thee but Not For Me
At the intersection of paranoia and fascism lies Cary-Grove high school. CBS Chicago reported that a simulated school shooting drill was to carried out yesterday, and this had many parents upset.
A letter from Cary-Grove High School principal Jay Sargeant, stated that there will be a code red drill at the school that will include somebody shooting blanks from a gun in the hallway “in an effort to provide our teachers and students some familiarity with the sound of gunfire.” Thank God Sargeant was not running the civil defense drills practiced by school children during the Cuban Missile Crisis when the threat of nuclear war hung over the nation.
Teachers have been instructed to keep students in their classrooms, lock their doors, and draw their curtains. One instruction was omitted which should have read that student should be seated on the floor, with their knees pulled up to their chest and they can promptly kiss their collective rear ends good bye.thanks to their school being declared a gun free zone with no protections that an armed guard could offer.This illogical drill would not be necessary if the government would simply PUT ARMED GUARDS IN THE SCHOOLS!
Police will sweep the building, while someone will fire blanks from a starter pistol. School district officials have justified the drill as being a case of “Nowadays it’s better to be safe than sorry.” The hypocrisy and accompanying insanity is self-evident.
The senseless application of zero tolerance policies are thinly veiled attempts to get our children to accept a governing authority that sees all, knows all and controls all. In short, public school children are being conditioned to be good subjects of the emerging fascist police state which is presently overrunning our nation. Be advised America, remove your children from the government schools.
