On a school bus, a high school football player pulls a gun on fellow student. Three students step in to stop the assault. One of the three was able to wrest the gun away.
The latter student's thanks for this brave act?
-a three day suspension for being involved in a weapon-related incident.
Our Leftist society is needful of turning young men into sheep. Our boards of education unwilling to deal with complaints and lawsuits from parents of students who commit crimes. Our administrators write policies in a manner that allows them to hide behind the rules while punishing the good kids.
No one can affect to be under the impression that school administrators were so ignorant of the facts that they needed to take actions that are provided in district policies for situations that are true emergencies. I have no doubt that there were quite a few fellow students who were chomping at the bit to tell everyone what happened.
These actions will, as the intellectual elite are aware, only cause more people to be hurt and killed. They know fully well that the best way to make everyone helpless victims is to make potential sheepdogs afraid of getting into trouble.
If I were a police chief, I would send this kid a a letter telling him to stay out of real trouble and, on the very day he reaches the minimum age, to apply for a job at my agency
A representative of the district administration, utilizing a common practice of today that is effectively an admission of wrongdoing, cites a law and pretends to believe (Or pretends that we will believe) that his answer provides justification for his apathy, cowardice, and failure to stand up for what is right:
"We cannot discuss specifics involving students," said district spokesman Alberto Rodriguez in a statement. "Florida law allows the principal to suspend a student immediately pending a hearing."
This is a disgrace.
