Yes, I agree, but you are ignoring the fact however that citizens are primed to sue schools when they feel the school didn't take proper action with regard to safety. They take the nails away this time. Then the kid does something else where someone gets hurt. All of the sudden, it's the school who gets sued for not taking action early on. It is a lose-lose situation for the school. If they take action, they are slammed for going overboard. If they do nothing, they are sued for failing to take action.
"I wonder if it's possible to strangle someone with a super-strength condom"
I don't know about that but a condom will stretch enough to be pulled over someone's head to suffocate them.
The chances of my kids ever setting foot into a government school are somewhere between slim and none.
"Perhaps we should stop suing at the drop of a hat."
But then lawlessness will sweep that land as millions of attorneys will have to resort to (visibly) armed robbery to steal they money.
"Were these 8d 'assault nails?'"
Did they fit the silencer-equipped pneumatic nail gun and air compressor that the kid was hiding in his other pocket?
That's exactly right. My oldest son has been on a hammering kick the last few days so he's been taking his hammer with him wherever he goes. Before that he was using his pocket knife to whittle sticks. All over our porch were remnants of sticks. So glad he doesn't go to public school and have to deal with this. They would have locked him up.
Wood shop has been shut down so that time can be used for more socially important purposes, like GLBT indoctrination, multicultural awareness, and the like.
She should have all the students arrested for bringing fists to school, definite potential weapons. And MS Doster should be arrested for bringing the potential tools of prostitution on school grounds,
This is beyond stupid, it's insane! I will drop an email to Commrades Doster and Hart Hyphen McCray, their bosses and their bosses, and tell them so. Maybe they can find a job as prison guards since that's what their calling seems to be.
I remember when I was a kid the Marines "invaded" Sullivan's Island with LST's and fought a wargame for 4 or 5 days.
Kids were bringing belts of 7.62 M-60 blank ammo to school they had found in the sand dunes.
Those were the days..
let me know what they say.
