Entingh said he never received a notice, but was aware of school authorities telling students, including Nathan, that any gun-related behavior would have serious consequences.

Your kid was warned. You knew about your kid being warned. Yet you act all surprised that your kid got suspended? No sympathy.

Sin_City_Superhero: Your kid was warned


And 10 year olds are known for their ability to model their behavior to conform to arbitrary adult standards.  That's why they make such good witnesses in a court of law.

Public schools are completely and utterly retarded, and zero tolerance is just the icing on the two neuron cake.

They can send out notes saying "any and all child-like behavior from children will not be tolerated," but people will probably still be annoyed when kids kicked out of school for it.

Fingers, man. A 10 year old kid with fingers.

Your scorn is woefully misplaced.

Teacher: "Don't do that."

Kid: "But it's not hurting anybody."

Teacher: "I know, but it's against school policy.

Kid: **does it again**

Teacher: "I told you to knock that shiat off!"

Kid: **does it again**

Teacher: "Yo, little homie, I told you to stop doing that! Don't do it again!"

Kid: **does it again**

Teacher: "I have repeatedly asked you to conform to the rules of this school. Since you refuse to do so, I have no choice but to suspend you."

Kid's Parent: "Wha..? Suspended? But they only warned him forty or fifty times!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------- - --------

It's a stupid rule to be sure, but it ain't like the kid and the dad didn't know the consequences. They were just suffering from the it-can't-happen-to-me syndrome. When they realize that it can, in fact, happen to them, they act shocked.

When is the last time you talked to a ten year old child?
 
2014-03-04 05:28:18 PM
I wonder how many different levels of "look alike firearms" there are. This was a level 2. Would a pop tart gun be a lower level or higher? If the kid had said his fingers had a suppressor would it involve federal time? What if he had said "boom" more than once? Is it a fully automatic level 41 look alike?

I don't think I want to know a six-year-old who isn't a dreamer, or a sillyheart. And I sure don't want to know one who takes their student career seriously. I don't have a college degree. I don't even have a job. But I know a good kid when I see one. Because they're ALL good kids, until dried-out, brain-dead skags like you drag them down and convince them they're no good. You so much as scowl at my niece, or any other kid in this school, and I hear about it, and I'm coming looking for you!

Take this quarter, go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face! Good day to you, madam.

Yea, I wanna know this too. Is a lower number good or bad? Is a Level 1 imagining a gun, or bringing an airsoft rifle shaped exactly like a real gun?

WHAR CHART WHAR?!
 
2014-03-04 06:31:51 PM
Would he still be in trouble if the thumb wasn't raised? How about if he mimicked shooting an arrow? Or throwing a grenade? If he said squirt instead of boom would he be ok? Or would that be a level2 meta offense?
 
2014-03-04 06:33:17 PM

EvilEgg: Would he still be in trouble if the thumb wasn't raised?


Of course not. That means the hammer is forward and the gun can't fire. It's totally safe at that point.
 
2014-03-04 06:35:48 PM
He should have just said the "gun" only shot poems in many languages about differently-abled multicultural students working together as one to foster togetherness and caring...poems that got you in the FACE and you're DEAD Bryden, so THERE!

It's better if kids learn to mindlessly obey senseless rules now, and then they'll be good citizens and not question authority later on in life. Obviously this boy is an incipient terrorist and the next step would have been coming to school with a fully automatic Glock AR-97 assault revolver, and the teachers need to nip that in the bud.

What if a kid simulated pushing a button that he claimed was setting off a nuclear bomb? Off to Gitmo?

I seem to recall a case last year where a principal was suspending kids for saying the word "moist", so I guess anything is possible.

If forming your fingers into an "L" is a "level 2 look alike firearm", what is a "level 1 look alike firearm"?  Is that when you see a gun in the wallpaper, or in your peanut butter, instead of seeing jesus like you normally do?

It depends if the levels go up (like the terror alert) or down (like DefCon).

2nd Degree Genital Obscenity Infraction for any administrator acting like a dick.
 
2014-03-04 06:50:21 PM
It's probably a good thing I'm not in school anymore; we'd play football, cowboys and Indians and smear the queer all recess. We would have all been suspended for 3rd level violence; 4th level racism and 5th level hate crimes.


/ also 2 degree witness of buffalo sex

No. The school's in the wrong here.

The Nazis had very good beauracracy. So did Mao and Stalin. None of them were in the right.

I think it's time for all of America to admit that the Won't Somebody Think of the Children zero tolerance policies in school are actually bad ideas.  I know it would mean that a few people will have to admit they were wrong but we're all adult here.

I'm sure parents had nothing to do with the adoption of this particular policy. It's all just dumb administrators.

I can't imagine the horror that is Columbine with finger guns...

We must arm all school staff with finger guns. If a teacher points a finger gun at you and discharges it with a yelled, "BANG!", you WILL clench your "wound" and play dead or ELSE!

Next up: theater patrons.

Three day suspension sounds excessive for the triviality of the offense, even with warning. The school should have tried making him stay in at recess for a week or something first.
 
2014-03-04 07:00:51 PM
I hope this was meant to punish the parents because a three day suspension for a finger gun is going to mean zilch to a ten year old.

I don't know what kind of school you went to but the punishment for what you described above where I went to school might have been a trip to the principal's office and a call to your parents.  It certainly wasn't a three day suspension.

A 10 year old talking to a 10 year old... what is the hopeful outcome?

Look, if school administrators don't harshly punish and severely humiliate these kids, they might develop issues growing up.
