    Fucking ridiculous... punishing kids who disarmed a possible shooter. They should be brought on stage in front of the entire town, given medals, and allowed their pick of up to three girls each from their school.

    This is what people are telling potential shooters through these actions... "Now, we know it's not your fault you want to shoot someone, that's the fault of the firearm itself. And we will guarantee you, as seen by these signs, that no one else at these schools will possess a firearm capable of stopping you. Furthermore, anyone who physically prevents you from shooting another child will be suspended immediately, and if you succeed, the media will say your name and run your picture for months afterwards".

    Nice way to make a gun sound scarier than it is by capitalizing it.

    And maw sure sounds like a real road scholar.

    That's exactly what this school told this shooter should he ever get to come back and any other student who thought about shooting some. It's fucking sickening what these schools and politicians are doing. Even though fucking trained military/police and trained psychologists are telling them not to do this. I'd say it makes no sense but it does because they think they know better than everyone because they are in positions of power

    I hate this mentality and the zero tolerance policies that go along with it.

    Right. A socialist school system doing the same thing any socialist system will: producing arbitrary, nonsensical, counter-productive rules that turn people into defenseless, powerless sheep.

    Let's all shake our heads in disapproval. Let's all blame it on the principal (as if he's the one who invented the notion of a "zero tolerance policy", or has a choice about following it to the letter). That will definitely result in a miracle, and create the first socialist system in history that works.

    Zero tolerance: Don't think, don't question, don't act. Remain docile, compliant, and impotent at all times. Those above you are the only ones qualified to do anything for you. Do not trust yourself with anything. You are incapable by virtue of your lack of appointed authority.

    It's a tragedy that school shooters never go after the administrators. It's always teachers and fellow students.

    I don't blame the principal. I blame school boards and the lawyers
    that both sue everyone and that advise school boards to
    make these shitty rules to avoid being sued by everyone.

    I still blame the principal. The kids did the right thing and, in all probability, saved lives. The school boards and lawyers have made shitty rules, but the principal doesn't have to enforce them. He always has the option of nutting up and using his fucking head. It is a possibility that he could get fired, but that's a risk he should take. If the choice is one's ethics vs. one's job, one should choose their ethics every time.

    I can't see them suspending him simply because he had an "incident" on the bus. There has to be more to it. An EMERGENCY suspension?

    Could him and the other 2 kids have been more involved in what happened before the kid with the gun pulled it?
    Could there have been some worry about retaliation in school the next day so they give it until the end of the week, plus the weekend, for things to cool down and there NOT be a shooting at school? Basically for the kids own safety?



    I gpt this comment from one of the stories I looked up trying to find out more about this.
    and
    I understand the thinking but it's gotta be beyond a political reason. A zero tolerance thing I can see....I disagree with it, but I can see it happening, which is fucking stupid if this case is exactly as it looks here.


    And if you didn't read this far I am not agreeing with the school off the bat. There's something missing. Unfortunately, without the camera, you have half the bus who are friends with the arrested kid, half the bus that are friends with the suspended kids, and most of those kids probably didn't really see anything in the first place.

    A zero tolerance policy sounds good, and is easier for those in charge then saying "We will make a proper judgement call on a case by case basis".

    Hell, lets just get rid of the entire justice system if Zero Tolerance works so well.

    Bring on Judge Dredd!

    Close. He was suspended for not cooperating with the investigation, not because he disarmed the kid. Two others also were, but the school is such a shit hole, none want to cooperate for fear of retaliation.

    You can't? Schools will suspend a kid for having a piece of paper in the shape of a gun, they will suspend a kid for having a pastry that is in a similar gun shape. I absolutely believe the progressive ran public school system is capable of over reacting.
