I have a strong urge to drive up there, find the jackass who came up with this policy and give them a knife to defend themselves. I will then take one of the districts schoolbooks and beat the shit out of them with it. to be fair, I will use a smaller school book, such as one covering Civil Liberties defended by the Bush Administration. I'll even let them have a bigger knife than a Cub Scout eatin' tool.

Then let's see if they ban books as weapons in school.....

Kind of like the Army, why "think" or use discretion when you can just point and say "it's policy"?

Making an actual decision means the possibility of making a mistake. When you have a career to build, you can't risk that. :roll:

MSNBC video that updates us on this tale. The kid brought what looks like a standard Swiss Army knife to school and it looks like he is going to get 45 days in reform school. WTF?

I see crap like this and want to slap the piss flaps off the dumb asses who use a hammer as the only tool. Zero tolerance = zero intelligence.

That is absolutely ridiculous! Watching the interview the mom and the young lad appear befuddled even now, as to why it was necessary to make this into a spectacle with her son at the center of the attention.

If it were a kirpan would the same have happened?

They'd have to send in a SWAT team to drag that kid off to reform school if he was my son.

Zero tolerance has NEVER had a place...and it still does not...

Shit, when my redneck, hillbilly ass went to grade school, we couldn't bring a knive BIGGER THAN 4 inches to school...

now you can't bring a boy scout eating utensil into class with out being a fucking Hadji Terrorist?
WTF...

We used to make our own gun powder, and after that used the propellent from Estes Rockets, and blow all kinds of shit up....we almost killed our fun loving selves....but it wasn't terrorism back then...it was a bunch of red neck kids having too much time on their hands...thank God no one ever got hurt...but if they did...it was understood that the gene pool was a little deep for that person... jes sayin'...

fuck these fucking fucks.....it is a good thing my kids are over the age of bullshit...I would have to raise up a big can of whooopppppppaaaasssss....

sorry...jes me.

Ranger X, that is a very good point, and I hope and pray that various levels of government will not take away individuals abilities to use their brains, yes there will always be bad element but to squash the good element along with the bad by implementing zero tolerance THAT is not the answer.

Update-

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091014/ap_ ... erance_boy" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

So the school board caves when the angry mob shows up with torches & pitchforks, and the parents are actually going to send their kid back to this wussy indoctrination center.

This kid is doomed. I can only hope he is instilled with some cajones while in the Scouts..... :evil:

& they can't understand why home schooling is so popular these days.....

If bureaucratic, brain dead fascists make these types of decisions regarding a little kid at school, just wait until you need them to approve a CAT scan for a dying family member.
