Vernon teen suspended from school for twirling pencil, report says

VERNON — A seventh-grade student at Glen Meadow Middle School was suspended last week. The student says he twirling a pencil in class, while the school says it may have been more, News 12 reported.

Ethan Chaplin told News 12 that while he was twirling a pencil with a pen cap on in math class, a student who bullied him earlier in the day yelled, "He's making gun motions, send him to juvie."

Vernon Schools Superintendent Charles Maranzano told News 12 that school policy and the law requires him to investigate when anyone in a school feels uncomfortable or threatened by another student.

Chaplin's father, Michael Chaplin, recorded a conversation between himself, the school's principal and guidance counselor earlier in the week, and posted it on Youtube. In the video's description, Michael Chaplin wrote that his son was to be evaluated and see a therapist before he could return to school.

"I feel my son's right to an education is now being denied because of the malicious actions of another student," Michael Chaplin wrote on Youtube.

Michael Chaplin told infowars.com that his son had to undergo a five-hour physical and psychological evaluation.

"The child was stripped, had to give blood samples (which caused him to pass out) and urine samples for of all things drug testing,” Michael Chaplin told the website. “Then four hours later a social worker spoke to him for five minutes and cleared him. Then an actual doctor came in and said the state was 100 percent incorrect in their procedure and this would not get him back in school.”

Homeschool is the way to go, unless you got the dough for private education.

If the school system there is like this... he doesn’t need it.

I’d never make it through one of these new government run child programming centers. I’m glad I got my education when the number one priority was educating. Not programming young skulls full of mush into being good, obedient commie liberal slaves dependent upon BIG government.

Schools are clueless about bullies. The innocent kid is usually the one who gets blamed. The schools are afraid of the bullies, so they often let them off the hook in any confrontation.

When I was in highscho, I put a bully in a headlock for pushing a kids face into a brick wall. He wouldn’t stop and the kid was already knocked out. The principle thanked me. This was in the late 90s. Today, I would have been jailed, labeled a threat, and expelled.

These ridiculous policies are destroying the male population of students. They are almost always on the receiving end. Be more like the girls, sit still, behave yourself, no violence, use emotional reasoning, don’t compete, draw ponies and flowers, obey!

The girls are worse; they just go after each other with vile slander and accusations on FB and texting. Many, many girls have committed suicide after being called sluts, hoes etc and having lies told about them by the Mean Girls.

This is a stupidly serious matter.

Serious for the kid and stupidly equals the school officials.

Your criticism of the editing is half right. You can write on Youtube, in a post accompanying the video. I imagine that is probably what the article writer was describing.

I twirled my pencils all the time and still do. Yoohoo, NSA, just did it for the puter camera.

Who stripped the kid? I’d have their job and everyone within a mile of that happening.

LOLOL! You just created a new, but true affliction. Will you dub it “MBP”? And will it be listed in the same category as Affluenza?

And, they got in these positions because we weren’t paying close enough attention.

You can’t twill a pencil now in school? I would have been kicked out, since I used to twill my pencil and pens when I got nervous.

The lawsuit will be priceless...

I would be issuing a RFP to major law firms for the best offer to sue the school district, school staff and the parents of the accuser.

Law firms would be lining UP to get this one.

they are democrats. yes they are idiots . but even some smart person cannot make government nor the government schools work. government, the democrat party, democrats, and the media are the problems

government/socialism can never work and leads to things like this government school totalitarianism , banning light bulbs for the global warming hoax, the global warming hoax, housing projects, N korea etc. etc. etc. etc.

investigate when anyone in a school feels uncomfortable or threatened by another student.

I started laughing when I read this. By this standard, it will be investigations 24/7. There will literally be no time for learning. Might as well go straight to the gulag.

I see great opportunities for this young man as he spends those hard earned millions of dollars his lawyers will take from that school, its administrators and anyone else that ever touched anything to do with said “discipline”. The unfortunate part of it is the bottom sucking lawyers will get the majority but who's counting?

And, speaking of lawyers of this type, if I were a lawyer I would start a firm that handled these cases as their primary type of cases. Such a firm would have plenty of opportunities as there certainly a lot of stupid cases like this one.

That could work both ways. Suspect liberals of something? Call in the authorities. Spread the word that they are closeted conservatives.

Won't work for Christians, though; bearing false witness is a no-no.

“When I was in highscho, I put a bully in a headlock for pushing a kids face into a brick wall.”

When I was in Jr. High, I was rather passive, which invited bullying. Get me mad enough though, and it is a different story. I taught one bully how to fly, inside the school hall no less. He sailed horizontally headfirst for at least ten feet, just like Superman. He made a perfect three-point landing - on his face. No more problems from him - ever. I would not have made it through school today.

not only that, Child Services came to the house, made him strip under the covers of his bed, took a urine test and then a blood test where he passed out.

Then, after he was cleared, they pressed charges against his father for NOT taking him to counseling.

It can’t get any worse than this.

Also, this is Sussex County, NJ, Scott Garrett territory, the most conservative area in the state and this nonsense still happens.
