A thirteen year-old Canadian, Briar MacLean, was reprimanded by school officials for potentially saving the life of one of his fellow classmates. After defending the victim from an armed student, the vice principal chastised MacLean, saying that he should have gotten a teacher involved instead of acting quickly.
MacLean told the National Post that he was in a morning class in his middle school in Calgary when he saw a bully antagonizing another student. He put him in a headlock, and I saw that, he said.
The fight escalated when MacLean heard the flick, and I heard them say there was a knife.
MacLean instinctively jumped and pushed the bully away from the other student and then continued about his day unfazed. However, later he was called into the office and not allowed to return to classes for the rest of the day.
The vice principal called MacLeans mother, Leah ODonnell, saying that her son was involved in an incident where he decided to play hero and jump in. The vice principal added that the school did not condone heroics, and that the proper course of action would have been to get a school administrator to handle it.
ODonnell said, 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.(continued)

The RCMP should come to the boys aide. Make him an Honorary RCMP.
There is zero gradual here. If you read up on European bording schools (or talk to those who attended) they have been like this since the late nineteenth century.
Thats how Maynard Keynes came to be such a twisted little creep.
This is being imported, just as they are trying to do with Islam.
Emasculating boys ensures they don’t fight back when the government hammer falls. Oh wait, that’s where we are right now! And if they don’t get you in the schools, the co-ed workplace will surely castrate you.
This is why the British just stand around when one of their people gets stabbed to death in the street.
To paraphrase: “When seconds count, a teacher is only minutes away.”
Anyone who upbraided this kid should submit to a psychiatric evaluation.
Then be fired.
End of story.
They don't take NO for an answer, have no problem with name calling, searching for private information about those who disagree with them (with the help as we now know, of the IRS and perhaps other government agencies), lie, threaten and intimidate anyone for disagreeing with them, while demanding "tolerance!"
They want children to be like the Eloi.
When someone is drowning don’t jump in to save them. Just wait for the “authorities”.
What a pathetic world for my grandchildren to grow up in.
“The gradual feminization of young males in North America and Europe continues apace.”
Not all males. Some are encouraged or allowed to be quite violent. They are called “youths” and “teens”. They like Skittles and Iced Tea.
Shortly the school will back down due to public outrage. Thing is why do these administers keep making fools out of themselves?
Leah O’Donnell should have asked, “Is there one administrator in your school who isn’t an idiot?”
I was going to say “Foolish consistencies...” but you are spot on.
My son turns three tomorrow. As he grows he will be taught the Truth. He will not fit in. He will give them hell or I will have failed.
Why would be have to go get a teacher, unless one was not there? And, why wasn’t a teacher there? And where were they and what were they doing instead? And where was the administrative oversight? And why did it not know what was going on? Who at the school was responsible for those students at that exact moment, and what disciplinary action will they undergo? What specific updates to school supervisory procedures will take place to make certain this does not happen again? How can parents be certain that this school will address its failure to supervise children and make the school into a knife free zone - and this MUST include plastic knives or spreaders in the faculty lounge.
Wish him a happy birthday from a fellow Dad in Maryland. Mine is ten months old, and already is a fearless little explorer with an eye for the ladies. My wife used to politely listen, and maybe cringe a bit, when I railed about public schools, drugging and emasculating boys, and the creeping police state. She's now firmly on board and we talk about the 'what ifs' a lot.
No matter what, my son will never be made to take medication, apologize to anyone or be ostracized for simply being a boy. As my father did, I will do my best to teach him respect, honor, the difference between right and wrong, and the ability to recognize when wrong has gone too far and needs to be knocked on its ass.
