Felonies or serious threats will still be handled by police.

Around here it's really easy to upgrade an incident to a felony. Take the spitball example. That could hurt if it hit an eyeball. So police will charge felony assault with a dangerous weapon.

Perhaps when students are arrested and jailed for being late, it's time to admit that a for-profit prison industry is a really bad idea.

Do I need to look up whether Florida has private prisons, or would that just be silly?

The agreement with Broward County Public Schools in Florida, which officials planned to announce Tuesday, is one of the first comprehensive plans bringing together district officials, police and the state attorney's office to create an alternative to the zero-tolerance policies prevalent in many schools.

This was going on in PA too and then it was discovered that the judges handing out the sentences were getting kickbacks from the private prisons who held the kids.
 
2013-11-05 01:10:24 PM
Fewer kids going to jail means fewer jails and jail-related jobs.  This is a job-killer, so I'm against it.  Plus, it sounds like increased regulation of both the education and prison industries, so I'm against it.  And people not in jail are people who need jobs, and that increases the unemployment rate, so I'm against it.

Incarceration - good for America.

It provides little else but noting that the NAACP got involved so fewer black and Hispanic students are being arrested.  OK, I get it - if white kids are being let go for the same offenses.  Or...on the other hand, what if those white kids committing the same offenses are instead also arrested?  I saw Bully.  I know what white kids in Florida are up to.

Oh, yeah, not arresting students who are involved in crimes has worked out so well that they're going to make fewer arrests.
If Trayvon Martin had been arrested instead of being kicked out of school, things might have turned out differently for him.

Spitballs are meant to be fired at the back of someone's head, into their hair.  That's the funny part.  They are a stealth weapon: take out, fire, put away, look bored.  And make sure you're behind the person, or you'll just be retaliated against, anyway.  Spitball is the first weapon on the sniper.  Baby steps, and such

Article, though, was a breath of fresh air.  I have problems, though, when the rate of incidence only goes down 41%.  What kind of generation is coming up where 59% of school offences are viewed as felonies?  Back in my day, the worst thing anyone did at school was the school "bad girl" walking in on Halloween dressed in a teddy and lace panties. Technically, nothing was showing, so she was just told to go home and change.  She was not the best looking girl in HS, but she was good to have at your back.  Many, many kittens were killed without ever telling her what I wanted to.


/I still rue that halloween, as I chose to come in the front entrance, not the back.
//no, never went there

The policy went into effect at the beginning of the current school year, and Broward Superintendent Robert Runcie said the district has already seen a 41 percent decline in the number of school-related arrests.

so essentially, out of every ten incidents, 6 of them are felonies. More than half?!!?! WTF is wrong with kids today?

Whatever petty crime they see fit.

If the student is suspended or given detention, it shows up as a bad statistic for the school.  Makes em look like one of those schools filled with thugs.  But guess what?  If the student is arrested, it doesn't show up in the statistic!

What the hell are you talking about?

My 95+% white high school had dozens of incidents of sexual behavior in school, and that's just what was actually noticed by staff/students in the 5 years I was there.

Nod.  It is getting to the point to where having the endorsement of the police union or having a tough-on-crime stance is something I consider a major negative in a candidate running for office.  Locking people up isn't cheap, especially when for-profit prisons are involved.

You would think that the fiscal conservatives would be the first ones in line calling for the end of zero-tolerance and the war on drugs.  Too bad so many of them are in bed with companies that profit from all this.
