A Canadian student in Calgary has been suspended for saving the life of a classmate from a knife-wielding bully, according to the National Post.
13-year-old Briar MacLean stepped in between an assailant, whose name has not been released, who was brandishing a knife while attacking another student. MacLean pushed the attacker away, and the bully was subdued.
MacLean was thanked by the victim; the young man then went about his day at school. However, several periods later, according to both Briar and the school, he "got called to the office and... wasnt able to leave until the end of the day. He received the equivalent of in-school suspension.
The reason? A teacher had seen what MacLean had done, told the principle, who then phoned the police... on Briar. The police then searched the young man's locker and he was asked for a statement.
Briar's mother, Leah ODonnell, recalled asking the teacher who reported her son about the incident: I asked: In the time it would have taken him to go get a teacher, could that kids throat have been slit? She said yes, but thats beside the point. That we dont condone heroics in this school.

The world has gone completely mad. Every day we see more evidence of this.
Bleeding out students are OK though.
Good for the hero. My only complaint might be that he didn’t hold the knife wielding bully while the other kid called 911 to have the bully arrested.
Couldn’t they just use chemical castration instead, and let him remain in school?
This is what you get when constantly chastised by “the authorities” NOT to do anything but to call them/LEOs. You’re not a professional so should never try to do their job.
what is even more mad is that parents are willing to send their kids to these indoctrination centers called public schools, rather than living more poorly and at least protecting their most important part of their lives!
S.O.W., also known as the SWC (Status of Women Canada, a federal government organization in Canada) strikes again. No “male” heroes allowed. Coming soon, to a government school closer to us.
Now, if there’s someone brandishing a knife at that teacher, students and others will know to butt out, right?
In the time it would have taken him to go get a teacher, could that kids throat have been slit? She said yes, but thats beside the point. That we dont condone heroics in this school.
***This is freeping unbelievable. Is this the onion? Does this school condone a kid pulling a knife on the other kid?
How do we reach these administrators to give them raspberries and how do we reach this kid to give him kudos?
just have someone pull a knife on the principal.
Fire every adult associated with harassing this boy. And make sure they can never work around any young people ever again.
So this teacher witnessed the attack and did nothing to stop it? What a coward.
So it is clear the infestation has crossed our northern border and Canadian schools are toast too.
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
COWARDICE IS BRAVERY
Maybe someone could drive dozens of gallons of highly combustible liquid onto the school premises in a device that can generate huge amounts of kinetic energy.
That crap happens EVERY day, by the HUNDREds, because teachers drive cars to school.
