(Minneapolis Star Tribune)   Apparently, the school thinks an appropriate punishment for a white student putting a noose and KKK paraphernalia on the desk of a black classmate is a suspension instead of expulsion and criminal charges   (startribune.com) divider line 204

Being raised like that is punishment enough.

//just partly enough.

Kill him, kill the parents, foster care the rest of the siblings.
Do this enough times and at least the bigots will go back to HIDING their bullshiat.

/on the plus side, I like that the bigots have come out of the woodwork. Makes it much easier to shun them and vote against them.

Sounds like he probably got a 7-10 day suspension, beyond which requires a hearing before the school board. Expulsion is a lot of work and is more trouble than it's worth for anything other than an offense for which it's required (binging a weapon to school).

100% chance this little defective got his ideas and notions from his parents.  Racism and bigotry is learned behavior.  First you expel his ass and arrest him for making terroristic threats.  Then you beat the hell out of his parents, preferably with a mace.

Having lived in that town, and having gone to high school fifteen miles from there twenty years ago where a very similar incident happened, involving a noose tossed at some black kids who were visiting some friends at our school, I can say that what the boy did was out of pure ignorance.

I would bet that the kid, his family and most of the other students there had NEVER gone to school with a black kid before, and probably 90% of the same had never been around black people ever in any setting.

Flashback twenty years ago and the punishment meted out was the same. One week suspension. I thought it was light then, but looking back, the fact is, it was a dumbass kid who committed the offense. He's still a dumbass 20 years hence, but has not committed any hate crimes beyond being a dumbass in high school.

I hope some of this anecdote helps understand the situation. Careful condemning the parents, kids, teachers and administrators here. Most are too ignorant from being raised in a very sheltered environment.

Personally I'd consider racially motivated death threats to be sufficient grounds for expulsion. I guess that's just me, though.

Doesn't seem to be a death threat any more than the one kid's drawings were a bomb threat. Just some stupid thing he did without thinking.

Ok, maybe death threat is too strong (although you could argue that the noose qualifies). At the very least, the kid needs some serious counseling to learn that this behavior is not acceptable, ever.

I hear that those racially motivated death threats are like 10 times more scary that the average death threat.

Absolutely nothing happened to the black kids who set a white kid on fire in Kansas City. Why is it only surprising when the kid is white? I'm not trying to be racist. I'm just trying to be fair. I hate all races equally and children especially.
 
2012-12-29 12:04:58 PM  
Nah, one-week suspension is fine. If he's a 'first offender', suspend him for a week, throw him out of any school clubs, and so on.


But remember, he's a kid. A stupid one. Expel him and you've basically given him a black mark for life. At the age of 13-14. You shouldn't be getting permanent consequences at that age unless if what you did caused permanent consequences to someone else.

If plastic guns and pocketknives are "weapons" now, I don't see how a noose doesn't fit in that same category. It doesn't really have a wide variety of uses.

It is. He's fourteen and in high school and doesn't know shiat about farkall and thought this would be a funny way to get a rise out of people because GRAWBROOGYDOOGY I'M WACKY TEENAGER. Hoof him in the ass and tell him to grow up. If we ran to the courts to unfark every teenager who did dumb things there'd be nobody left to run the country.

He was moronic. Every one of you made a moronic mistake at his age. To those calling for death for a child's mistake? How is that not a terrorist threat? Or a moronic mistake. Perhaps it's worth reporting you for attempting to incite violence.

The KKK and associated noose are symbols of the Democrat Party

Never forget that. Anti-slavey activists formed the Republican Party, fought to end slavery - an institution the Democrat Party fought to preserve - and the KKK was formed by Democrats intent upon preventing Washington from having any influence in the now military occupied South. The KKK killed government officials, blacks associated with the newly forming governments, terrorized, murdered and burned down the buildings associated with Republicans.

The kid is just acting out a century and a half long tradition of Democrat political theology.

Also:

"She has been experiencing racial comments since joining our family her eighth-grade year," Hitzeman wrote in an e-mail sent to an advocate for disadvantaged youth and shared with the Star Tribune. "Her freshman year started out with students calling her 'Big Mocha' and making fun of her hair and breasts."

That breaks my heart. It sucks to be that age in the first place, not to mention being tossed around the foster care system, trying to feel safe in a new family, going to a school where only 2 other people look anything like you at a time when "fitting in" trumps all other social priorities...

And then this stupid little farkwit comes along and pulls this stunt. Whatever the punishment, it should include community service-- preferably in a minority community. Let this kid learn a thing or two from his mistake.

All true, but times and ideologies change. The Democratic Party issues of then are now the Republican skeletons in the closet of today. Neither party wants these clowns.... Right?

Discrimination creates discrimination.

Lets bus different colored kids to another school for equality.
Lets set up funds for minorities for equal access to education.
Lets make a school with only females or only males.
Lets allow immigrants to ignore our laws and make special allowances for their culture.
Lets make special monetary discounts for old people.
Lets treat under 18's as having no constitutional rights or freedoms.
Lets fondle and grope people and say its for their safety from brown people.

FTFA:

"'Baldwin-Woodville is a good place, and we're proud of that fact,' [School Board Member Deb Rasmussen] said. "

Um.... no.  Also FTFA:

"Hitzeman said that other students, after hearing of the boy's suspension, have criticized her foster daughter, saying she overreacted to a joke."

A joke. Hardy har har.  Oh, yeah, and...

" 'She has been experiencing racial comments since joining our family her eighth-grade year,' Hitzeman wrote in an e-mail sent to an advocate for disadvantaged youth and shared with the Star Tribune.  "

These "kids" at this school need more than sensitivity training and toothless suspensions.  They need a harrowing Twilight Zone style mind-f*ck.
