If I have said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times and I’ll say it again. If you have a child that you care anything at all about, you will not allow him/her to spend another 15.5 mille seconds in one of those child prisons. — jtl, 419

A principal suspended a student for saying “gun” on a school bus. The boy had the nerve to tell other students that he thought it would have been a good idea to have had a gun in the Sandy Hook school where the madman shot students.
That did it. No more Mr. Nice Guy. The principal suspended him.
This is part of a pattern in public schools. This was reported by CNS News.
- In January a Pennsylvania, kindergarten girl was suspended for bringing a Hello Kitty automatic bubble gun to school. The school called the incident a “terrorist threat.”
- In March, a Michigan school confiscated cupcakes from a third grader because they had small, toy army men that were holding guns on them.
- That same month, a Maryland school child was suspended for biting a toaster pastry into a shape that resembled a gun.
- In January, a six year-old was suspended from a Maryland school for pointing his finger in the shape of a gun.
- Another Maryland elementary school student was suspended for bringing a toy cap gun on to a school bus to show his friend.
- In May, a Virginia second grader was suspended for pointing a pencil like a gun.
These are examples of North’s first law of bureaucracy: “Some bureaucrat will eventually enforce the letter of the law to the point of utter imbecility.”
