The important thing to take away from this whole thing is that the school administrators. were able to avoid using any critical thinking skills.  All guns are bad and anyone who so much as sees one (or a poor replica) should be traumatized and need psychological counseling.

Pretty soon, a kid saying "bang" in school will be considered an act of terrorism. People will have to refer to it as "the B-word."

Yesterday, one of my kindy kids pointed a plastic banana at me and said "bang bang." I should probably call the police next time, just in case.

Anyone traumatized by seeing a pastry gun certainly needs professional help.

To be fair, he did place several volatile souffles at random locations throughout the school.  He was up to something.

You wouldn't think this was so funny after your school got shot to pieces.

Well, to be fair, anorexics DO need professional counseling...

If my school got shot to pieces by a pastry I'd think it would be f'king hilarious actually. And tasty.

You know, you're right. I think school systems everywhere should take immediate action to ban all foods that might be chewed into threatening shapes.

So, the price we pay for freedom is this AND shooting sprees? I guess it's OK as long as we don't suspend athletes for rape or bad grades.

Plastic bananas are unloaded.

But imagine what would have happened if someone pointed a loaded banana at school.

I actually started ignoring people in november or so of 2008.
I have over a thousand so far. I started it thinking maybe it would make my FARK a friendlier place, now it's just a game to see if I can keep adding people to ignore and notice if it actually does anything or not.
assholes seem to multiply quicker than I can ignore people.

This shall include, but is not limited to, pellet gun, paintball gun, stun gun, taser, BB gun, flare gun, nail gun, and air soft gun.or a hand with one finger pointing

Could some one please let me know when the candle light vigil will be held.

We don't let kids wear clothes with guns or knives on them.  Take your threatening behavior elsewhere.

No candles. Too pointy and gun-shaped.

i would accept the counseling. i would go into the session and say "i'm disturbed by all this. i am mostly disturbed by the fact that the people who are in charge of my education are dumber than dirt".

What else world you expect out of program run by the government; staffed by career politicians, bureaucrats and  unionized government employees whose own qualification courses on education have nothing to do with the real world?  Plus they fight tooth and nail against any performance metric for themselves.

Amazing.  We're raising children with the belief that if it looks like a gun it's an honest to god threat and those who see it need counselling.  The scary part is that we're going to leave the future of this planet to these kids we're farking up.

You know, if we've gotten to this point, then maybe we as a culture have gotten to soft and weak.  Maybe we need to stop the direction we're heading and tell children and adults "Seriously, you're traumatized by that???  Put on your big girl pants and move the hell on."  Or think of it this way, would we rather our children be raised to be the ones who piss their pants when they see their shadow and seek counselling, or should we start raising our children to be Ron Swanson like individuals?  I'm voting for Ron Swansons.

That would probably be interpreted as a terrorist threat, or at least an antisocial and maladjusted comment, which would get you placed on permanent double secret probation with those little "in-crowd" hash marks on your school file.

ADHD kid playing around and making "inappropriate gestures" with a pastry that looked like a gun (something that doesn't seem to be mentioned in the school board's letter for some odd reason).  Why do I think there is more to this story that the father doesn't want us to hear for fear of making his precious snowflake look less precious and snowflake-y?  You know, like that kid who was suspended for singing I'm sexy and I know it, only to turn out later that the little brat had been harassing the girl for some time.
 
2013-03-05 09:09:43 AM  
Why are these dweeb administrators scaring the pants off of these little kids? For goodness sakes, it's some kid playing war. You tell the brat "don't do that" and that's the end of it. But noooooooooo, these farktards have to blow it up into a major deal; bringing in counselors, basically reminding the children that they too could be gunned down by a madman at any second, just like at Sandy Hook.

These people are stark raving mad. No wonder so many people are turning to home schooling to get away from them.
