fusillade762: dahmers love zombie: My son was incredulous when I told him not to bring Tic Tacs to school. Assholes like these administrators are exactly why.Considering kids get suspended these days for taking farking Ibuprofen to school that's wise. Pretty soon I'm picturing school will consist of being stripped naked, searched and then going to class in a hospital gown.
I_Am_Weasel: High school is all about a strict adherence to the rules, no one out of line. This is to encourage a proper environment for education to occur. This school, in particular, must maintain a certain Pekin order./not sure how it's suppose to be pronounced.
davidphogan: Energy mints?

jayhawk88: McMichael said he was told his son was being monitored by the school nurse and that the teen had an elevated heart rate and high blood pressure."He's never been in trouble," McMichael said Friday. "He was probably just nervous."Or he was wired off the caffeine pills he'd been taking all day. Look, it's stupid, but on the other hand, I don't think you necessarily want 17 year old kids taking 3 pops worth of caffeine every half hour.
BoxOfBees: Technically it was drugs. Same kind the teachers and administrators are taking, most likely. Elevated heart rate and blood pressure? Yes, a combination of caffeine and stress will certainly do that to you.
Plant Rights Activist: farkingismybusiness: [www.megaforcerecords.com image 450x450]wow, when did Jabberjaw become such an asshole? (And become a judge?)
Do_wacka_Do: School teachers and Administrators are Saints, they do such difficult work and get paid nothing. They took these jobs purely through the goodness in their hearts. We need to stop picking on them.
pedrop357: This proves it's more about power followed by an inability to admit they were wrong.The claim that they though it was drugs conflicts with them simply sending him home on a bus. The 'unknown substance' claim is thoroughly disputed by the tests or other information that it was gum.They thought it was drugs, suspended him, drug him through the mud, then sent him on his was way. They cared about exercising power, not about drugs in school or possible harm to a student. I wonder what the odds are that this student has (no pun) rubbed the staff the wrong way.They find out it's not drugs, so they claim unknown substance. This is one of the catch-all disorderly conduct equivalents for schools. They can claim that it was unknown at the time or unknown brand or whatever. They don't have to prove much of anything.It's stories like this I always flash on when people tout the benefits of compulsory education, or how professional school administration and teachers are, how funding this system is essential, how school administrators don't have enough control, etc.How many other students have found themselves punished for non-offenses by this school?
Raoul Eaton: If "taking an unknown product" is a punishable offense, then I should have been suspended every time I ate a school lunch.// I loved the high-fat, high-carb stuff they served way back then/wouldn't eat the fish patties, though, after a rumor some kid found a worm in one
Parthenogenetic: BoxOfBees: Technically it was drugs. Same kind the teachers and administrators are taking, most likely. Elevated heart rate and blood pressure? Yes, a combination of caffeine and stress will certainly do that to you.And when their bodies become acclimated to the caffeine? They'll seek more powerful stimulants to feed their addiction. And then maybe downers to control their "high".Energy mints, my friends, are a gateway drug. The first step down the slippery slope. From there, it is a short distance to Four Loko, and then the deadly siren song of marihuana.I applaud the school administration for their bravery in ensuring the safety of the students, and the moral underpinnings of American society.
