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.
