  • what do you really expect. the sense of entitlement these days is running like mad. no one is responsible for their own actions any longer. people feel it's their right to do what they want and say what they want no matter who or what they're trampling over to behave like that. common decency is no longer in fashion.

  • there is ZERO sense in zero tolerance. a kid who TURNED HIMSELF IN for having a replica weapon (left over from weekend particpation in civil war reenactment) in his on campus vehicle was disciplined, suspended I believe, for having it.

    yeah, he clearly intended a faux massacre of dozens of classmates with his fake gun, which is why he told the faculty he was in possesion of it.

    it's bureaucrats who refuse to take ANY responsibility for thought who perpetrate this BS.

    oh, and I'm no fan of guns, either. but this kid was clearly trying to COMPLY with the rules. once again, the public schools teach kids they might as well disobey, because they'll get screwed either way. (like the current policies on "fighting". get your ass kicked? jumped by five thugs when alone in the bathroom? you're suspended for being "involved" in a fight.

  • here are more tales of PS idiocy: a high school girl with "distributing controlled susbstances on her permanent record. for selling pot? giving away ecstacy? no, for sharing her midol with another high school girl

    a kid suspended for having a butter knife on the floor of his car. it had fallen out of a kitchen drawer when he'd been moving. (are high schools getting their "weapons list" from the TSA, or what?

    "stand back, or I'll butter you" "don't come any closer or I'll clip your nails, I know how to use these things and I will if you make me!"
