Was found to have eaten a booger during the background check.

Oh good. I was wondering where all the whargharbly gun threads went to.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Seriously WTF. Zero Tolerance policies really are (one of) the stupidest thing ever. Imagine if he'd drawn a gun ... he'd probably be in Gitmo.

I see no alternative to life in prison here.
 
2013-01-02 12:15:34 PM
This thread was brought to you by the letter L. Which is now illegal, as it looks a bit like a gun.

Don't sign it either.

That child should be tried as an adult.

At this point I must seriously consider that one of the qualifications to work in school administration must be to have absolutely no common sense whatsoever.

A 6-year-old Montgomery County boy was recently suspended from school for making a gun gesture with his thumb and forefinger.

Okay, given recent events, maybe we need to impress upon kids the severity of even suggesting the violent death of classmates.

Now, his family has retained a lawyer and is fighting back.

FOAD all of you.

This would have been necessary if all the students had assault fingers

My 8 year old nephew got in trouble for playing Rock, Paper, Scissors, Gun the other day.

This might be the beginning of the end, where society crumbles upon itself trembling in fear and everyone huddles in the corner to quietly piss themselves.

Did they cut off the offending hand for evidence?

/clicks article.....Damn wussies.

At issue, Ficker told News4's Jackie Bensen, is whether the boy understands the implications of the gesture.

NO, it ISN'T. The issue is whether YOU understand the difference between a firearm and a human finger.

finger bang in the classroom?

Also:

_At issue, Ficker told News4's Jackie Bensen, is whether the boy understands the implications of the gesture. After speaking to his young client, Ficker is convinced that the boy does not._

That's what punishment is for--because the child doesn't yet understand the REAL implications of his/her action, so we as parents/authority figures substitute immediate ones.
 
2013-01-02 12:19:17 PM
Wasn't the administration armed with fingers already?
 
2013-01-02 12:19:27 PM
This child will be nothing but trouble all his life, take him from the unfit parents and put him in the system. Maybe with counseling and rehabilitation we could save him from a life of drugs and crime. Let's nip this in the bud.
 
2013-01-02 12:19:51 PM
The law states he doesn't understand intent? I call B.S. I think that kid is very aware that guns kill people.

One can never be too cautious with a six-shooter

I was once assaulted by a finger on a date. It can happen. There should be a license for some people to have hands.
 
2013-01-02 12:22:39 PM
Scum like this doesn't deserve a hearing. Save the taxpayers the cost and drag him out behind the courthouse.

Bullets only cost 20 cents.

/isn't that how it's done?

reminds me of the deaf kid named Gunner. The school said he had to change his name because the sign for his name looks like a gun.

Wow, the kids in Con. could of faught back with their fingers. This solves everything.

Yeah, if you're not a complete idiot you go through security and think nothing of it.

Agent Smiths Laugh: At this point I must seriously consider that one of the qualifications to work in school administration must be to have absolutely no common sense whatsoever.


Many do have common sense, but the fear of litigation/investigation overrides that. The beauty of "zero tolerance" policies is that it takes the judgement out of the hands of the administrator, so they can just point to the policy. No need to risk making a bad decision since it's the policy, not the person that dictates the course of action. It's harder to fire an administrator for following the policy (and doing something stupid) than firing one for making a bad decision (when something bad happens).

My school would've been one empty place if they had been doing kind of thing back then.

When I was a kid, every boy had a pocket knife, and we'd play "mumblety peg" out in the playground durng recess. If that happened today, they'd call out the SWAT team, and the boys would be on the evening news. Evidently, to be a teacher or school administrator today, you have to be void of any common sense.
 
2013-01-02 12:28:04 PM
Kid should've thought of that before he modified his finger with a pistol grip and a flash suppressor.

Precisely my point. Nobody wants to be accountable for using their own brain anymore.

"Just obey and everything will be fine citizen. Leave the thinking to your betters."

This is the mentality being encouraged.

Everyone has assault fingers in Switzerland, and there has never been anyone suspended for using them improperly there either.

When I was a kid we played "gun fight" all the time with our fingers. The really sad thing is that most of us grew up thinking that "finger guns" and "real guns" are basically the same thing. Also, when the other kids pretended to die, we got a taste for murder. Now most of us run around murdering people willy-nilly with real guns because that's all we know. It really warped us.

Don't they know that these restrictions only affect law-abiding finger-owners?
