WTF has happened to this country?

Every note book I had as an elementary school kid was a Nazi bloodbath. Nazis being machine gunned. Nazis being blown up by tanks. Fighter Jets dropping bombs on Nazis (okay... so I had some continuity errors). Nazis being bayoneted. Nazis getting their throats slit. Nazis being blown apart by hand grenades. Basically any way related suffering imaginable being visited upon Nazis. Nobody ever had a problem with it because it was Nazis getting what Nazis had coming to them.

Are you a Communist sympathizer or something?

I suppose if those characters were holding a flower or a dildo in those drawings, the teachers would be supportive.

Teachers need to teach and stop trying to be meddlesome social engineers.

I've never actually met someone who would actually make a decision like this.  If anything, it's those people that need to be expelled for being completely incompetent.

I wonder if children with suppressed thoughts of Ninja Jedi would be more likely become violent than a kid that was allowed to vent the feelings into silly pictures.

If that was upsetting to the principal, it's a good thing he's never seen the creativity my 5 year old comes up with. Did a nice cutout of a witch eating a small child and a story book called Yuck Soup that had as ingredients blood, knives dead people and cut off fingers. On the cover he drew a person covered in blood because the knives cut up his insides after he drank the soup.

Yes, these were all work he did in his kindergarden class that was turned in to the teacher.

I used to draw guns and robots shooting ninjas and crap all the time in school.

WTF is wrong with people

The irony is that the more you throw a hissy fit over the most innocuous things like this, the more you give the child the impression that these things are so awesome that the authority figures declare them verbotten. All you're doing is helping him determine which things the teachers and principals hate/fear the most, and that sort of knowledge gives the student a sense of knowing what to embrace more as a form of rebellion.

Considering that it's private school in Arizona, my money is on the headmaster being a religious fundamentalist that has problems with Halloween and reality in general.

I'm really glad I don't have children. I can't imagine having to deal with something like this. The kinda shiat we did on the playground in elementary school (30+ years ago) would get us expelled, arrested, possibly on a sex offender registry, and put in a few sensitivity training classes.
 
2013-11-02 01:20:34 PM  
Is there nothing we as a society can do about school administrators?

They seem to be the biggest single threat facing our country today.

Jeez, one of the very first things I drew and grade one was pictures for a story with Darth Vader and the Death Star and lots of laser blasters. And in the story I had people kicking him in the bum and sticking a rubber hose up his nose.

Exactly. The only criticism this kid should have heard was that he's not getting proportion between the heads and bodies anywhere near right.

When I was a kid, I used to draw airplanes, with stars and bars shooting down airplanes, adorned with hammers and sickles.
I bought a hundred water guns so I could save the world, saving my lunch money and stealing my father's quarters, dimes, and nickels.
I discovered religion watching Luke Skywalker rescue Princess Leia and destroying the Death Star by letting go and closing his eyes.
And I devoured comic books, three-colored mythology books taught me right and wrong, and if you believe, you can fly.

So the whole story comes from the parents, no comment or attempt to reach the school? I'd like to hear all sides before getting outrage. It sounds a little "snow-flakey" to me.

I went to a Christian high school for the first few months of my freshman year. One day, I was drawing a skull during my time at lunch. I was a decent artist, and this was a nice image of a skull with a rose in its teeth. Nothing Satanic, no horns, no words... Just a human skull.

One of the teachers walks by, sees it, and confiscates ALL my books. My Trapper Keeper (hey, it was the 80s) and class textbooks, EVERYTHING. He says, "We do don't that sort of thing here, mister!" and then just gathers up all my school possessions-- My entire backpack and every book-- and takes them away.

"You can have these back when you bring your parents to speak with the Principal." he says.

Well, I'd had enough of this school already. The people were nasty. The teachers were all hypocritical jerks who seemed to delight in hurting or intimidating kids. The administration was bigoted and sexist. It was a shining example of modern Christian values. So this was the last straw.

I went home that day told my folks what happened, and demanded they remove me from the school and put me back in the public school system. I told them that if they sent me back even one more day, I'd leave. I was serious, too. There was no way I was going back there.

They relented, and so I never went back. That day was the last day, and I never even bothered to go get my backpack and books back.

Sometimes you have to just have drop everything and haul ass.

I'm sure this 1-sided article is completely accurate and in no way sensationalist.
Because no other boy in this school ever draws pictures of ninjas and stuff.
I'm sure the guy picked this one boy and "threatened him with expulsion".
Totally sure.

I know, but until the parents let the school tell its side of the story without fear of lawsuit that's all we have.

I had a special section of my primary school binder devoted to full-page renderings of myself standing over the graves of my enemies (bullies) while their dessicated and rotten corpses were devoured by hordes of worms and bugs. I eventually got called into a conference over it. The counselor asked why some of the pictures showed me crying. I told her no, in fact those were tears of laughter.

I shudder to think how many antidepressants they'd shove down my throat had that happened today.

Ha!!!  Shows what you know.  As the courageous Gohmert from Texas prophetically warned us, terrorists are coming here to have children.  This kid is just the first of many who will soon overwhelm this nation and force us into an islamofascist dictatorship where we are all forced to pray 5 times a day and so forth.

It WAS the Democrats. If Bill Clinton had taken OBL when he had the chance, 9/11 would never have happened and Bush wouldn't have had to clean up Bills mess.

I got in trouble before for drawing swords at school. Even was ratted out by the brown nose teacher's pet when we had a substitute. The teacher even brought in my parents to talk about it, telling them she was worried because I was "drawing daggers".

My mom immediately told the teacher I was drawing swords, pointing out all the differences between them, and then told the teacher off because I wasn't even drawing people being chopped up or anything. And that was the last I heard of that, went right back to reading novels in class and drawing swords. So glad to have a mom that understood me.

Uh well, let's see. Clinton did try to take out bin Laden or at least have him deported to Saudi Arabia and this was before bin Laden exhibited any real threat to the US. He was admittedly unsuccessful. As for Bush "cleaning up Clinton's mess" you might recall that it was under Bush's watch that bin Laden pulled that little prank on us on 9/11 and Bush subsequently responded by invading two unrelated countries and declaring that he didn't care about capturing bin Laden, which Obama later did (well not capturing exactly).

So WTF are you talking about?
