TLDR version: 15 year old points loaded gun at another kid on the school bus. 14 year old kid jumps him and disarms him. Both are suspended for "being involved" in the incident.
Is this zero tolerance thing going too far? How is the lesson here not "let people die, don't get involved"?Answer Question

About 15 years ago I held a kid by the arm to stop him from beating the crap out of another student. I was told I might get in trouble for that. Really? Was I supposed to let him pummel the kid? Anyway, I wasn't disciplined for hold the kid back, but I've never done it again.Now I put my body between the kids. One advantage to being fat.

What a fine example of "No good deed goes unpunished!" If that boy had not "involved" himself the way he did, they could be looking at a much bigger problem! I hope those idiots in charge come to their senses & give that boy an award, not a suspension!
