What was she thinking!?
This is also a problem. The kid didn't have a choice in the matter. He's a child. He doesn't have legal choice. AND, he reported the items to administrators.The boy, whom authorities have not yet publicly identified, faces possible suspension or expulsion.
This reeks of the same poo that I'm hearing about in Britain. For example, the man who was arrested for possession after reporting a gun found in the park.
