    ZERO TOLERANCE appears to also mean zero common sense. :mad:

    Oh that's bs. They should be smart enough to have the student show them what he was doing with his pencil. That happens to me all the time. At least 5 times a day I drop it for it flys across the room. I like moving it in my fingers. You simply take the pencil and twist it around over and over. And they believed he was making gun like gestures with it. Dumb ass's now a days... :mad:

    The only thing more ridiculous than being suspended from school for spinning a pencil is swallowing online sensational media reports as the complete story. Especially when infowars and the huffington post is involved.

    Soon we'll have brain scanners so we can expell students that think of the letters G, U, and N in any combination. Nugs?! :eek::D

    I can't believe I am agreeing with the Right Media whores and say the PC school stuff lunacy has gone over to the extreme and common sense has left PC people a long time ago.

    I feel dirty, too.

    I would like to see a complete rundown of the facts after the dust clears. But, I am struggling to imagine something that would make sense of this.

    Yeah people hear the word gun and flip out. Last night in my town we were all told to stay inside becuase of a "lose gunmen". A ton of state police were there helicopters were looking for this guy... And then we found out this guy never throned anyone was on his own property only and went out for target practice. One shot was fired. And this guy came out of the woods when he seen all the helicopters to find out they thought he was going to kill some one.

    Anyone here read The Wasp by Eric Frank Russell? Hands down, my all time favorite Sci-Fi novel of all time.

    'Murica has become the Sirian Empire.:rolleyes:

    So no repercussions for the boy who cried wolf, eh? If it were my son, I would demand my pound of flesh. Bullying the kid wasn't enough, he had to slander the boy as well. This calls for a soap in a the towel flogging; a pound of flesh.

    At that point, wildebeests and open-source software will be in deep trouble.

    I think every pen on my desk has a bent up chewed cap. Been doing it since I was little...

    Then again...we are talking about New Jersey.
