(Reuters) - The Justice and Education departments unveiled guidelines on Wednesday to prevent schools from violating civil rights laws and keep students out of jail after data found minorities and the disabled were more likely than others to face discipline or arrest.
Attorney General Eric Holder said the guidelines were aimed at giving direction to school law enforcement officers, protecting the civil rights of students, and keeping kids in the classroom.

Racism is wonderful as long as it’s your racism ?
Keeping the classroom dysfunctional so that no one learns anything.
Typical coercive utopian tyranny.
Fascism on the march, as predicted:
So if you are a minority you can break the law a little more then someone else before they arrest you? Is this saying that minorities break the law more often then others and therefor need special dispensation?
Just what they needed, a license to steal!
They get more Mulligans because Holder is keeping score.
So, now it’s “jail inequality” in addition to “income inequality”?
Although students with disabilities make up 12 percent of U.S. students, they are 19 percent of students who are suspended and almost a quarter of those getting a school-related arrest.Funny how there is absolutely no definition offered for students with disabilities. I have never seen any students with what I understood to be disabilities at greater risk of being disciplined or arrested for any reason. The ones that got arrested were those that sold drugs, were violent or engaged in other criminal activity.
I understand loosening the rules on the truly disabled. Teachers have gone overboard with them.
I don’t see where minorities fit in. What makes them so special? Are they disabled or something?
Aren’t whites becoming minorities? Maybe the word “minorities” should be defined.
So White kids that can walk will be punished more severely than others? How very fair and nice.
I think Obama and Holder will be happy when all the whites are dead or in jail.
BLT advocates no respect for white based authority. Paying off in spades. Holder playing the game well.
>> violating civil rights ...
>> protecting the civil rights ...
And not to forget the civil right minorities have to play the “knockout game”.
I’m sure the teachers and the kids who want to learn are whooping it up over this Holder action.
Hell, why not just give the kids guns and let them finish off the whole class.
Let’s see if the media keeps up on this story, or buries it like the future victims of these “yutes”.
“The ones that got arrested were those that sold drugs, were violent or engaged in other criminal activity. “
That’s what they mean by disabled.
At first blush I’m thinking “why would kids in wheel chairs or with other physical ailments get in trouble more”?
But no. They mean sociopaths who have been designated to be dyslexic, or have ADD or some such broadly defined subjective “disability”.
Did this really happen "routinely"?
No, they need to keep some around to oppress and use as targets for knockout games. They also need a few as leftist useful idiots.
You are correct sir, unfortunately. When these chumps said 25 million Americans needed to be wiped out, what ethnic group do you suppose will bear the brunt of their death squads?
I think they are calling bi polar or something like that a disability.
We had a girl in a wheel chair at our school, she sure wasn’t causing problems or getting arrested.
So much for the white man’s standards. Blacks have been having trouble with them for how long now?
Get your children out of public schools. They will be even more dangerous now.
Sounds like more Black KKK and minority KKK racism
Holder will never face up that his ancestors liked jumping the fence...
Bottom line......if at all possible get your kids out of public school, either by way of private or home schooling. If there is no choice ‘right thinking” parents must get involved in school boards or PTA’s.
Why do blacks (minorities) get arrested more often? Because blacks commit crimes more often.
If they’d stop committing crimes they wouldn’t be arrested as much
“disability” has nothing to do with ability to walk.
It has everything to do with being defined as “learning disabled” or “ADHD” so that your welfare mom & grandma can get the extra “crazy check” from the government.
And why do “disabled” kids get into more trouble?
Because the definition of “disabled” includes not being under the proper discipline and authority of a parent.

This time at knife-point.He needs your legal advice.”

The word for the “disabled” when I was in school was “Trog” which was short for “Troglodyte”. We learned the term when busing started. The kids in the housing projects taught it to us.
Basically, they are only smart enough to throw a punch, steal money or use a knife.
Why not try to keep them from the reason(s) they are sentenced to jail. “Do the crime, do the time”.
Truthfully, states should enact “with authority comes common sense” laws, which says that people in positions of authority in the state must use “common sense” in carrying out their duties. (I know the actual wording would be different).
1) Zero tolerance policies in schools. School teachers and administrators are *required* to exercise good judgment in dealing with disciplinary matters as individual cases, instead of carrying out irrational policies, or asking for the arrest of children except in extraordinary circumstances.
2) Police officers when summoned to schools will not arrest children on the demand of teachers or administrators unless significant laws have been broken that are *outside* of the discipline authority of the schools as proxy for their parents.
3) Other people in positions of authority are expected to use good judgment, or face the consequences for bad judgment, or the abrogation of their authority.
