Yahoo ^ | 2/25/2014 | Yahoo

Posted on 02/25/2014 2:38:38 PM PST by Dallas59

A senior at Northeast High School in Clarksville, Tenn. has been suspended for 10 days and faces a multitude of additional punishments including criminal charges because school officials found a knife belonging to his father inside his father’s car.

The student is David Duren-Sanner, reports local CBS affiliate WTVF.

The student’s father is a commercial fisherman who works on the West Coast. The father left — wait for it — a fishing knife in the car.

Duren-Sanner has sworn he knew nothing about it.

The people who run your schools aren’t smart enough to be educating anyone’s kids.

Get your kids out of public schools. The schools may reform themselves someday, but your kids only have now.

I was amazed that school officials could search vehicles and from the reports must have almost removed the seats to find the knife. Police couldn’t do this without probable cause or a warrant. Do school officials have so much time on their hands that they can spend hours searching student’s cars? This whole thing is ludicrous.

This is one of many reasons why jury nullification should be taught to all conservatives. This decent person should be found Not Guilty regardless of the letter of the law. As for the morons who are wasting taxpayer dollars on this political show trial (demonizing weapons), they should be treated appropriately.

The sissification of our youth.

Everybody carried a pocket knife to school when I was growing up, even in grade school.

In highschool (driving age) I always had a shotgun in the trunk of my car during dove & quail season. Many had shotguns in a gun rack in their PU trucks parked in the school parking lot.

We never killed or knifed anyone.

Of course, back then we got an education. We could read and write upon graduation from HS.

Put the blame clearly where it belongs...on the parents...for intentionally sending their son to a government school. Those places are a known quantity. It’s not like anyone can pretend they don’t know that this is what government schools are all about.

They searched his CAR on a random lockdown search. No probable cause, no warrant, no nothing, just a random search.

Why is it that articles like this can’t point out the gross violation of civil rights but they can sure call it a civil rights violation when a Christian doesn’t want to bake a cake for a gay wedding.

I was cutting the magnet out of my note book in 7th grade home room and it slipped. It was only 3-stitch worthy but the one-armed kid next to me threw up. No one even said not to bring it to class again.

Horrible reaction by jack-booted idiots. Poor kid, what a nasty thing to do to a senior. His dad’s car?! They must have known his dad was a fisherman and assumed a knife was in the car so they could make some sort of example out of the family/kid.

This nonsense, and the kidnapping of one’s children by medical “experts” needs to stop.

Zero tolerance on white students for things like this while declining to punish black students for actual misbehavior will be the way they falsely narrow the gap in discipline of student misbehavior. The word has been sent out to the schools to stop suspending or expelling black students who threaten teachers and other students, because of the “disproportion”. They can close that gap this way.

Ok. I understand the 10 day suspension (Well, not really) but why all the additional punishment ?

Kid unknowingly brought a 3' inch blade knife to school in his fathers car...

He is a ROTC student, 3.0 avg senior...

Whatever "point" they are making, I'm sure as the sun comes up tomorrow, it will have the opposite effect...

NEVER CONSENT TO A SEARCH

As a former Leo/Corrections Officer my family knows the rules.
NEVER allow a Government agent into the home PERIOD! Unless the produce a valid warrant. That is ANY Government agent.
Never consent to any type of search, person, car, home, etc.
If they say well we can get a warrant then allow them to go get a warrant.
Never answer any questions from a Government agent beyond polite conversation unless under arrest and then only with a lawyer present.

I had guns, knives, condoms, contraceptive foam, ammunition, occasionally booze and who knows what in my car in the high school parking lot.

Hell, once I drove one of my dad's work trucks there because my 1964 Corvair had a flat. It had a case of dynamite and blasting caps in the bed.

The FFA boys had bottled oxygen, acetylene, propane, big ol' veterinary hypodermics, big ol' bottles of antibiotics, electric fence chargers and who knows what else.

That was normal in the early 1970's and nobody thought anything of it.

We always carried the dynamite in the cab. The caps rode in the back with the fertilizer.

When I was in school, guns and knives were in your car for hunting and fishing. The school never said a thing because no one was killed.

Time to bring back guns and knives in school parking lots, right?

This kind of stuff seems to get worse the further east you go. Kind of surprised at Tennessee, though.

Out here, where the dad does his fishing, I’ve never heard of high school cars being searched unless there was an active police investigation with warrant.

What were the govt dirtbags doing in the father’s car?

Violating 4th Amendment Rights ... well, not exactly. It is probably violating 4a rights that have been signed away by the student and his parents in order to attend school. Each year, families of government schools are forced to sign documents that agree to school district policies. While, I feel somewhat sorry for this kid, it really is family's problem and the community's problem.

My kids did a stint in government schools before we pulled them out. We had to sign all kinds of forms at the beginning of the school year. This past year, even though my kids were no longer in gov. school, I went to a school board meeting to speak my mind about a new policy going into effect. It was a simple policy. If you park your car on school grounds it is subject to search at any time. When I calmly explained to the school board and an audience of teachers and parents that the policy was teaching children it was acceptable to give up constitutional rights, I was treated like a nut case. Student safety was much more important to them ... which is a load of bull shit.

I should add that I live in a conservative area. The real problem is that too many men are limp-wristed metrosexual wusses, married to women that are afraid of everything and thusly turn to government to solve all problems. If men were men and protected their women, maybe women would be less afraid.

The kid should tell them all to f-off. He’s not going to do 90 days in some kangaroo court classroom, he’s quitting and moving on with his life, and will let the STATE know he’s had it and is DROPPING OUT (not going to look good for the school), and they can all suck eggs.

Why would any parent entrust their kid to these abject morons?!

When I was a kid everyone carried a pocket knife in school. No doubt every male teacher had one too.

We’d play “stretch” during recess.

Of course my Dad carried his rifle to school and kept it in the cloakroom during class. I’m sure others have similar stories to tell.

I did take shooting lessons at school in junior high. I already knew how to shoot since I was little, but took them anyway. They used match .22 rifles. They had a shooting range in the school basement. It was for high school ROTC but junior high kids were allowed to take shooting there too.

That car that the student drove onto campus is FAR more deadly than any fishing knife.
