Good thing he didn’t have a No. 2 pencil. Those are deadly in the right hands. :)

“Good thing he didn’t have a No. 2 pencil. Those are deadly in the right hands. :)”

Certainly can be.

Hopefully, while at the reform school for his 45 days, he will be assigned key chapters to read from some practical, experience-based books like “Prison’s Bloody Iron” by Harold Jenks and Michael Brown, “Put ‘Em Down, Take ‘Em Out!: Knife Fighting Techniques from Folsom Prison” by Don Pentecost, and “Knives, Knife Fighting, & Related Hassles” by Marc MacYoung.

The first author of the first book, BTW, learned most of his knowledge early in his criminal career during a year and a half at the National Training School, the federal reform school in DC.

Good stuff to know WTSHTF. As the Scouts taught me: Be Prepared!

As a matter of fact I have two spots on my right hand where graphite is still embedded from accidents with newly sharpened #2 pencils about 50 years ago. :-)

There is the problem - Education Experts! How can Zero Tolerance be interpreted as giving more leeway in punishment? Zero tolerance means what it says in the regular world, the opposite in the Orwellian world of the Left.

More unintended consequences? Yeah, right!

Decades later I still have the tip of one embedded in my leg.

Apparently they are, I once had the unpleasant experience of being introduced to a skinny little guy who had done time in prison and he solemnly assured me that he could kill any man with a sharpened wooden pencil or a ball point pen. Ever seen the movie “Casino”?

This “zero tolerance” crap really is ridiculous. I’ll bet they have no objection to students wearing leather belts even though they are perfect for strangling someone but if a kid came in with his pants held up by a piece of rope they would freak out.
