    A Counterstrike player who made the terrible mistake of making his own map using the high school he attend(ed) as a model. For that, he's been sentenced to alternative school and barred from participating in his own graduation ceremony:

    Ummm...there's a time and place to stick to the rules, it sounds as those the school officals are taking this whole incident WAY too seriously. Five swords indicates that he probably just collects them with parental permission.

    They'll show this student not to make a map on his home computer again. Hope he enjoys the Alternative education center Orwell tried to warn him about.

    Wait, you mean there are still people who play Counterstrike? No wonder he collects swords, he's still stuck in the middle ages.

    This is what Bush's "war on terror" has brought to America...Fear...Paranoia...Big Brotherism. America was not born of any of these things, but it appears that it will die of them.

    That's crazy BP. The response to this is a result of the school shootings of the late 1990's. The events and media coverage of Paducah, Springfield, Jonesboro, and Columbine resulted in the climate of today's strict zero tolerance policies on school campuses.

    As was noted, this has zero to do with the War on Terror. It is an example of "zero Tolerance" gone amock. Zero Tolerance is simply the attempt to avoid being responsible for. well being responsible. No one need make a potentially politically damaging decision because " their hands" are tied by a Zero Tolerance policy.

    Personally if I were the family I would hire a lawyer and threaten to sue the school district. They have no cause and effect and no reason listed to suspect the student was even violent. No motive and no indication of anything other than him making a map of an area he happened to be familiar with.

    More specifically I suggest you do a little research, you will find "Big Brother" is commonly the bent of the Liberals and specificly the democratic party. Our enlightened liberal wanna be masters "know" more than us ignorant knuckle draggers and are just trying to protect us. You should also do a little research on how it is that these same liberals routinely ignore the very laws they create, using the justification that somehow they shouldn't be applied to them.
