If they've got a dozen kids in the whole school who make guns their desktops every year and eventually one shoots anyone anywhere they'll be asked "Why didn't you DO something???" so a warning, yes, then suspension. Of course, the school is prohibited from telling their side and we have to take the word of the student and the parent on what went down.

SilentStrider: While the kid should have been smart enough to know better, this is asinine.


This.  I am hardly part of the pro-gun faction here on Fark, but the school's action is just silly.  If they don't like his background, fine, it's a school-issued computer so he should change it if they ask.  But the school never asked or even warned the kid he might be violating any rules.

Just another case of power-tripping school admins.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: so a warning, yes, then suspension.


The warning is the crucial part.  You're right that we're only getting one side of the story, but asinine behavior by HS administrators is hardly far-fetched.

Yes, we have to keep kids from killing each other.  But this kind of thing is completely counter-productive.  So stupid.

I have relatives who are teachers (or, rather, were teachers, they have retired)

They have admitted that one of the most frustrating parts of their job was dealing with school boards and other officials that were essentially two-bit politicians that had no interest in actually educating kids, but simply hanging on to jobs by installing irrational fears in the parent's minds then spouting the magic words such as "zero tolerance" or "standardized testing" that will supposedly fix the problem.

Really, the cure to this stupidity is to get involved in your school board elections and make sure anyone of them that use the above magic words as a solution gets roundly criticized and none of your votes.

The education of our children is far too important to leave to a bunch of self-centered con men.

Making guns a taboo subject will backfire.  If you tell children (30 and under) that they aren't allowed to even look at a picture of something, all you are doing is guaranteeing that they will seek it out as much as possible.

Trolling easily offended people is fun. And we are talking about high school students here.

I wonder if it would have gotten the same reaction if it was an AK against an American flag.  Or an AR.  But those AR's are black and scary.  I wonder if it'd been just an early 1900's Russian holding a Mosin Nagant that they'd freak.

Man, I had some messed up shiat in my notebooks in highschool.  In grade school I was fond of drawing exploding dinosaurs.  It moved on to weird wrinkly bloody faces in highschool.  Then photography came along.  Now I'm in the tech field and my artistic desires involve hand drawing snack foods and captioning them with a typewriter.  What the hell?

School administrator logic 101:

- Any kid that shot someone with a gun liked guns.
- Therefore, any kid that shows interest in guns might potentially shoot someone.
- If we find a kid that shows an interest in guns, and we ignore it, we will be held accountable if that kid does end up shooting someone in in the future.
- Therefore, we must display zero tolerance whenever we find a kid who shows an interest in guns.
- Pictures of guns demonstrate an interest in guns, so these cannot be tolerated.
- If the kid still goes and shoots someone in the future, we have the CYA proof that we tried to do something.

Yup. Stupid to put that on a school issued computer, and stupid to suspend the kid for it.


I disagree that it was a dumb thing to do, or that he should have known better. There is no threat associated with the picture.
The idea that a simple picture of a weapon is somehow offensive or threatening is mind boggling ridiculous.

And the very worst punishment he should have expected was a warning.

It's this, in spades.

I swear, school administrators must take some kind of class where the only thing they learn is that some day, somewhere, some how, the worst possible scenario will happen and THEY will be blamed. Therefore, it's up to them, before they do anything else, to a) think up that worst-case scenario, b) think of a way to show they did something, and c) do that thing, no matter how ludicrous or counterproductive it might be. Then, if there's time, they can d) actually address the immediate problem.

Your progression is spot-on, but replace it with anything and it still holds true. If a child were to get an infection from a paper cut, I can almost guarantee we'd see a similar progression banning the use of sharp-edged paper in that school, and the replacement of all normal paper with furred-edged art paper to head off future lawsuits by legions of multiple-amputees tracing their disabilities to paper-cut infections. Although the rational thing to do would be to put bandaids by the paper. Or, in this case, to just tell the kid he should have used a different picture for his computer wallpaper for a while.

Daniel's father said after ABC15 contacted the school, the administration backed down and will let his son return to school on Monday instead of Wednesday.
 
The kid's father brought an ABC-15 to the school?? Why wasn't he arrested, and why is the school letting him getting away with threatening them with a combat style assault weapon with a high capacity ammo magazine clip? Maybe if his parents didn't use an ABC-15 to solve all their problems, the kid wouldn't be so facinated with scaring other students with his gun nut picture.

Anyone who feels the need to stare at a gun on their computer all day is obviously having mental issues and is quite likely to mow down other people with a rapid fire automatic-loading rifle with one of those 500 round clips you can buy on the internet with no background check.

This.  I am hardly part of the pro-gun faction here on Fark, but the school's action is just silly.  If they don't like his background, fine, it's a school-issued computer so he should change it if they ask.  But the school never asked or even warned the kid he might be violating any rules.

Just another case of power-tripping school admins.

You would think the school was smart enough to know better.

No graphics, just the letters and numbers.

Hmmm...is there a word for when people deliberately try to inspire fear in others to cause political change?

Freedom of Speech?

No...try again.

They can call it whatever they want, but non-violent protest in solidarity is a good disinfectant of tyrannical stupidity.

Well, I suppose there is indeed a line between terrorism and "non-violent protest in solidarity" to serve as "a good disinfectant of tyrannical stupidity."

//But I'm guessing it falls on the side of not deliberately causing terror in others.


If are afraid of letters and numbers on a tee shirt then the terrorists have already won.

Did you get your guns back yet?  Because you were using speech to threaten and inspire fear in others in hopes that you could cause political change with that fear.

Destructor: Seriously... I think its time to bring back Rifle Clubs.

Or maybe we need to get rid of wood shop, and swimming, and anything dangerous.


I just did a short bit of googling and discovered that in 2010, 914(14.8%) kids from 1-18 died from unintentional injury in a swimming pool and 114(1.8%) died from unintentional injury from a firearm[1].  Clearly, our civic duty is to fill in the school's pool and turn it into a shooting range.

I think a better idea would be to make math t-shirts, with slogans such as "9mm" or ".45" or "5.56" or "7.62 x39".

""To me it's ridiculous. Three days for a picture? It wasn't like he was standing in front of the school holding the gun," said Daniel McClaine Sr."

So according to Daniel McClaine Sr you should only get a three day suspension for actually standing in front of a school with a rifle...

Makes almost as much sense as getting the three days for a picture...

vabeard: Twitch Boy: So when he misses out on college because of the suspension and decides to come back and shoot up the place, then who do we blame?

The answer is always the shooter.


Incorrect. If you ruin someone's life in someway. Be it bullying or Zero intelligence policies I have no sympathy for you or your family when the person you targeted responds

totalitarianism was the reason people fled to this country in the first place. 0 tolerance simply removes the option for education and enlightenment and moves directly into punishment, often for ridiculous, fear induced, knee jerk reactions like this

Gordon Bennett: Students, parents and staff are on edge, and the daily news delivers more reasons for caution.

Shut up, school official, you cock.

You can't justify punishing innocent people and completely irrational overreaction to nothing because of something you read about in the newspaper that happened elsewhere. Right and wrong are not subject to going in and out of fashion.


I also came here to post my outrage over that line of thinking.

And for the Yogoslav chicks

eyeq360: It's a stinking picture of a gun.  What's he going to do with it?  Injure someone with pictures of a bullet?  Maybe he'll print a picture of it and go on a paper cut rampage.


But but but! IF he sticks it into a 3D printer he will have a REAL gun!

So, if a picture of an AK-47 gets you 3 days off, how many days for a picture of a tank?  Or a battleship?

Or Zenworks if it's a Novell district. It manipulates the group policy objects on the workstation according to policies in eDirectory as opposed to Active Directory.

Personally, I would enforce a uniform background that had some kind of school logo on it. Maybe incorporate bginfo so that all these identical laptops are easier to identify for the kids and teachers. I'd prolly use a naming scheme that incorporated either all/part the kid's name or student#.

CSB:

My brother got suspended from elementary school in the early 90's for making paper guns at school that he was selling to classmates for 10 cents a piece.  Paper guns are serious business. (they didn't shoot anything, it was 2 pieces of paper folded into an "L" shape)

Can I just point out that at no stage does the article mention how many Croatian kids go to the school?

I know it's hard, what with the 1990s marking the end of a now-alien period of world history, but I expect teenagers to know at least a little bit about that decade.
