    Thumbs down Look out folks, "zero tolerance" just got dumber...



    Exerpts from the Washington Times article:


    A 7th-grade student in Virginia Beach, Va., suspended from school for shooting an airsoft gun in his front yard will find out on Monday if he is expelled for the rest of the year
    Khalid and his friend Aidan, 13, were suspended for “possession, handling and use of a firearm.


    Methinks the school needs to look up the legal definition of "firearm"

    The video does a decent job of reporting this one. It sounds like the school involvement is based on statements regarding the activity taking place at the bus stop. I think the school needs more than just a "he said, she said" to be able to take any sort of action and that their authority would be limited to activity at the bus stop. Under no circumstance does a school have jurisdiction on private residential property.

    The school system and it's administrators need to learn their place and this is probably the best opportunity for them to learn.

    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.
