To be fair, based on what's in the article, this kid does sound like someone you'd expect to shoot up a school in another 8-10 years or so.

From the pic in TFA, that's a scary looking kid. If pets kept disappearing in the neighborhood, I'd check his bedroom for cat skeletons first.

darthaegis: "I don't see it tenable at this stage that Asher receive a warning for the specific behavior we've agreed on targeting - i.e. use of pretend guns on fellow students and mention of killing.''
She added that the boy "had a concrete plan for killing [a female student] that he would not retract after discussion with our psych staff ... that he was physically and verbally aggressive at a whole new level only last week ... He might well present a risk to the emotional and possibly (though remotely so) physical safety and well-being of his classmates.''

~shrugs~  If they ignored it and he actually did something everyone would be screaming, "Why didn't you do anything??!?!?  You saw the signs!!!!!"


Yea for once the article actuall has the "more to the story" in it.  This isn't 'zero tolerance' it's a troubled kid acting out.

On that note, I really hate the "special needs" thing being applied to every kid who doesn't go to regular school.  If your kid was expelled from regular school fro being out of control they are not "special needs", they are jerks who need (better)parents and intensive therapy.

I don't care. If we have to live in a country where every adult with a Wolverines sex fantasy and a sub-optimal IQ can arm himself to the teeth and walk around a Chipotle thumping his chest, then we might as well live in a country where every kid who crooks his fingers perpendicular and points the index at someone gets expelled.

If we're going to be retards about guns, we might as well be full spectrum retards. No sense in half-assing it.

Normally, I'm all in favor of yelling about the stupidity of school administrators. But this puts a bit of a different spin on it:

She added that the boy "had a concrete plan for killing [a female student] that he would not retract after discussion with our psych staff ... that he was physically and verbally aggressive at a whole new level only last week ...

I may have side with the school just this one time. The kid's not "retarded", he has ADHD and "problems communicating", so he has the cognitive capacity to grasp the concept of there being consequences for threats and physical aggression.

120k in 5 months? I'm clearly in the wrong profession. Time to open a private school! I'll be hiring 1-2 teachers at 50% above the going rate for public school.

If there are any concerns I can be reached at my office on an island full of liquor and naked women.

ArkAngel: Duke_leto_Atredes: Gwendolyn: If the school is actually for kids with behavior problems they deal with this stuff every day. My son goes to a school where kids have Autism and also Emotional Disabilities. You work through this stuff with the kid and not allow them to have a back pack for a few weeks. Hell kids threaten this kind of stuff everyday at level 5 schools. A kid on my Social Work case load greatness to kill or maim staff daily, they ignore it because she does it to get a rise out of people and has no access to guns at home. I'm not sure this woman was enrolling her son into what she thought it was.

Our school district has one school for the window lickers who ride the short bus, they have a looser set of rules to deal with unruly kids, in short the have to use judgement

Is that even allowed of school administrators?

Everybody whining and whinging about school shooting complains that they didn't see the signs, their kid didn't get the treatment he deserved, etc.

Here?  If this 'special needs' child were never to have been punished for death threats and a simulated gun, he would have progressed to death actions with a real gun.

This is a future school shooting, aborted before viability.  Eating a pop-tart in the shape of gun is harmless.  This kid would've shot somebody if he'd gotten his hands on a real gun.  The school is a pretty big f*cking hero in this case.
