Another thread on this quotes a letter from the school, that the boys shot other children at the bus stop with pellets, in which case doing it from their own yard is no excuse at all, and there should be criminal prosecution as well as school suspension.
But again - we have inconsistencies - pellet gun or airsoft? And no - I do not condone shooting other children with anything (outside of them being active and willing participants in a game).
Most states consider bus stops to be “school property” for the intent of school children. IF this is the case - and these boys were shooting kids getting off the bus - then something needs to be done.
But I’m not yet convinced that expulsion is the answer.
