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.

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.

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.

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?

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

chazsandiego: That being said, anyone read the INSANE comments for this article on the original site?


"Liberals love shootings and dead kids. It helps them push their political agenda forward."

"Of course this suspension makes perfect sense to liberals. Liberals need dead children. Liberals need a body count. We can't have people disarming and disabling active shooters, that just doesn't fit the narrative."

"God wants us to defend ourselves. There are a LOT of godless people here, and, sorry to say, I WILL BE GLAD WHEN THEY START KILLING EACH OTHER..."

Totally detached from reality. These people scare me, seriously.

The story the allegedly suspended kid told (made March 1) doesn't quite line up with what the initial report (made Feb. 28, about a Feb. 26 incident) says. Also, the blog is lifted nearly verbatim from the Fox news report, a pure cut&paste job. Most high school seniors would not get away with such blatant plagiarism.

Not that schools are not capable of such asshattery, mind you, but I find it quite believable and acceptable that students involved in a gun-related incident--not to mention a fight--would be suspended for the safety of all concerned until the authorities could figure out what exactly was going on. After all, by their own admission, the students were fighting, and it started with a stare-down between two boys. For the protection of all involved, the best thing to do would be to take everyone out of school till it could be determined who started what with whom. For all the principal knows, the "heroes" were really the gunman's buddies, and helping him out; or supporters of the alleged victim, trying to even the odds.

That's what an "investigation" is for, you know. To investigate.

First off, I want to thank my fellow Farkers for the intelligent and diverse conversation that occurs in these here comment threads. While I don't always agree with the opinions I can most always respect them.
That being said, anyone read the INSANE comments for this article on the original site?

I was reading the comments and saw the anti-liberal mouth-frothing, and was mentioning it to a friend.  I was wondering why this site had so many total raving lunatics in one place.  Your comment has my answer, thank you.

fnordfocus: 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 realize that. That's why I added what I did- An emergency suspension should allow for non- guilty parties to make up work.

"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?

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.

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.
