Kyle drew other pictures, including a skateboarder, King Tut, a ghost, a tree and a Cyclops, the newspaper reported.
That seems totally relevant. A wee bit ridiculous that an 8 or 9 year old or whatever a 2nd grader is gets suspended for a pretty harmless drawing. Not the first time it's happened though, so no real surprise.

They would have locked up my silly ass as a kid. Because, all I drew in class was tanks, cannons, jets, soldiers with *GASP* rifles, all shooting and bombing the fuck out each other.

Weird times.
When something happens, the media scream 'why didn't you see the signs and do something?'
When nothing has happened, the media scream 'Why are you doing something?'

When people are afraid of getting blamed for inaction, they will take the actions to the extreme. It works to cover themselves, as well as to protest the ridiculousness of trying to ensure 100% safety everywhere.

If I were still in High School I'd take art class so I could paint portraits of firearms and sue the school for violating my freedom of speech/expression rights.

They are simply lovely tools and everyone now acts like only lunatics have them and want to wipe out life.

Ignorance is powerful. But like I said, I'd take advantage of the situation to make some money suing the school system.

Execute the tattling parents. Enough of this PC bullshit. If we want to keep this country's balls we're going to have to counter these asshats by encouraging our kids to draw stick figures of themselves shooting douchebags like these fucking stains of detriment to our culture.

I am so glad I don't have kids...if I did they'd have to be home schooled so that they could learn political INcorrectness is better than political correctness.

I don't think I could grow a kid right either.
I think they need public school for proper socialization with other humans, and home school to fix the political damage public school inflicts.
Too complicated.

I'd probably enroll them in some sports & other activities for the socialization. There are even social groups & sports leagues for kids who are home schooled so they don't feel so isolated.

But either way, this "let's all gather in a circle, hold hands & sing Kumbaya" society that's been created has got to end somehow.

Too bad we can't just lock up all the liberals

Now, now, that would make you just as bad as them with their silly laws and whatnot.

They really need a wake up call, or a good old fashioned beat down to knock the stoopid out of them. Whichever works is fine with me...

I got yelled at by a mother the other day cause I kicked her 9 year old brat of a kid out of practice for saying to me: "I'll do whatever the hell I want to..I don't care what you say!"...She yelled "we told you how to deal with him"! Which equated to kissing his ass. I don't roll that way.
I told her if it were my kid I would have given him a good spanking long ago and taught him to show respect. That went over like a lead balloon.

You're lucky you weren't this guy, Hudson:

An 11-year-old baseball player upset over being benched for cursing in batting practice called his father, who drove to a Bellmore ball field, rushed the mound and, with his brother, pummeled the coach, sending him to the hospital, police said Wednesday.

People aren't supposed to spank their children right?

Cops are allowed to use tasers right?

Anyone else with me?

That'll work. The kids in most neighborhoods tend to welcome the outcasts into the sports programs.
Way to create a serial killer.

I wonder where he learned those kind of manners...

I hope you kicked his little ass out for good.

Blame lawyers, not schools.

The only way schools can save themselves from the blood-sucking lawyers is to over react in these situations.

nope..I can't his dad is on the board...
I am sorry, I am not gonna kiss any kid's ass..I don't care if he or she is the second coming!....If they are being a shit and causing a problem...I take them out of the collective....I have 47-67 other kids in the pool I have to work with, focusing on one kid deprives the others..
I took a new approach..this week..got it from Full Metal Jacket....one kid becomes a problem.......everyone else pays for it and continues to until the said problem stops....so far...so good.
