Perfectly in line with current policy which teaches students that it is wrong to defend themselves.

i'm sure glenn becks personal website wouldn't have any reason to invent, imbelish or change the details to a story to make it pro-gun manufacturer. no sir-ee

Worst they could get away with after he broke the "never fight back" rule.

The kid should take the suspension and spend every minute of it working to get the whole administration fired.

Can we finally ban assault rifles?

Welcome to 'murica kid.
I'm surprised the school isn't trying to press charges on him for something.
 
2013-03-02 05:12:32 PM
Since this is from Alfred Peachous Presents Glenn Beck's The Blaze, I'm going to guess that some important piece of context was stripped away for outrage-generating purposes.

Anyone got a link that doesn't use Glenn Beck's crappy blog?

Could you please highlight the section which is pro-gun manufacturer. Thanks.

Is this like that time the mom was like my kid was suspended for throwing an imaginary grenade and everyone was outraged, but really he was throwing rocks at other kids and the mom was an arsonist?

If that liberal had the same history of obfuscation, lies and BS that Glenn Beck & Co have...then yeah, same thing.

Quadyle Davis? The three kids that saved the student from Quadryle better be on the lookout for his brothers: Monoryle, Biryle, and Triryle.
 
2013-03-02 05:17:51 PM
the arrest report stated the suspect, Quadryle

Regardless of the source (this was reported elsewhere, too) none of you in here paid attention to what happened regarding the suspension. Apparently, it is policy to issue an "emergency suspension" to ANY student involved in an incident that involves a weapon. It's for safety reasons, to give the school/ authorities time to figure out what happened, who did what, etc. before allowing a potentially dangerous person in school. Sounds reasonable to me. No problem here unless the kid is penalized academically or the suspension remains on his disciplinary record.

you are a puppet: Is this like that time the mom was like my kid was suspended for throwing an imaginary grenade and everyone was outraged, but really he was throwing rocks at other kids and the mom was an arsonist?


Go sleep it off.

Similar links appear to be from Fox news, Freerepublic, and ar15.
I am somewhat skeptical.

Although it might be a case of "the mainstream press won't report this."

Enjoy your day off and never forget to distrust those in authority.
 
2013-03-02 05:21:05 PM
I hate to play the devil's advocate, but there's actually a good reason for this.

In any incident involving a firearm, there's the possibility the attackers' friends could come to school the next day and kill the defender; this is relitivly common in areas with high gang violence.

Well then, I guess we're good here, since every liberal I have ever met can't see the truth right in front of them. EVERY ONE sees what they want to see, not what is there. EVERY SINGLE ONE. That's what it means to be a liberal.

2013-03-02 05:24:13 PM
Anyone who "wrestled the gun away" probably touched it, which makes them just as guilty as the attempted shooter under zero tolerance laws.

The student with the gun was a football player.  You don't mess with high school football in the South.

So, it's likely the three suspended students will net more overall punishment than the shooter.

TheOther: Disciplinary suspension or 'keep out of the way until we control the gunman's a homeys' suspension?


Given that its a provisional suspension, I think you may have hit the nail on the head
 
2013-03-02 05:25:24 PM
Ah year, a story told by a kid the media can't identify gives his side of the story. The school can only cite involvement. It's not like a kid involved in escalating a fight on the bus would forget to mention anything he could have done to provoke the kid to pull a gun, just as there is no way both sides could be wrong in this.
 
2013-03-02 05:27:24 PM
It is against some journalistic code not to correct minor grammatical errors when quoting obviously ignorant people?  I mean, it wouldn't change a thing except not make the mother look tarded.
 
2013-03-02 05:27:33 PM
Since this is from "The Blaze", I assume that the students in the story don't exist and the school in question was never built.

Greek: No problem here unless the kid is penalized academically or the suspension remains on his disciplinary record.


The rules are pretty much the same in every US high school --they'll get a zero for any work due or assigned during the suspension period.

I understand your attempt to play devil's advocate, but your reasoning seems lacking as it would be even easier for the student to be attacked in his own home.

Though, I suppose that would at least remove any liability from the school, so it does make sense in that regard.  Not for the kid's safety, just monetarily.

2013-03-02 05:30:42 PM
Calling this a suspension is idiotic.  Tell the kid to take a well deserved 3 day Hero's Vacation, let the school calm down a bit and none of this ever hits the press.
 
2013-03-02 05:30:54 PM
This is a good idea. If tempers are hot, separate everyone.

Now if it goes on their permanent record, if it costs them academically, if they are not allowed to make up the work missed in a fair amount of time, please post a follow up so I can get my undies in a bunch over the unfairness of it all.

"The school's referral slip said he was given an "emergency suspension" for being involved in an "incident" with a weapon."

Does getting shot count as being involved with an incident with a weapon?

If a sober driver hits a drunk pedestrian, MADD calls it an alcohol related accident.  It all depends on who's defining the the terms and what their angle is.
