    From the link:

    Second suspension. Sounds like a little troublemaker with an enabling parent, imo. But since the schools is forbidden to comment because of privacy laws we will never know.

    This thread is rather ironic what with the current craze of arming teachers and/or principals.

    Schools don't seem to be allowed to discipline students at all and you people want them to have guns???

    I don't see the irony. Seems to me that a society which allowed school personnel to carry arms might be more tolerant of innocent, traditional childhood games.

    We played cops and robbers, cowboys and indians and didn't grow up to be mass murderers.

    Had a situation up here where a child we nicknamed "little johnny the kid" pointed his chicken nugget at another kid and went "bang bang" and was suspended.

    Except that this is the kid's second suspension, according to the article. It is doubtful the story we are hearing is the truth, that they were merely playing cops and robbers.

    It is ridiculous how schools aren't allowed to discipline. I have a friend that got smacked by one of her students in class last month and the student only received a 10 day suspension. He should have been expelled. He's now back in her class and there is nothing she can do about it aside from quit.

    That's just it. This is the fourth incident I've read of like this since Sandy Hook. There are too many morons running the public schools and then we wonder why we're graduating kids ill prepared for the real world.
