Zero Tolerance

These zero tolerance rules are absolutely ridiculous! It allows human beings to act like morons rather than the thinking individuals that they were meant to be.

Scissors found in 4th graders backpack

My goodness, when I was in elementary school, everyone understood that scissors were tools, not weapons. In fact, it wasn't unusual for little boys to have a small pocket knife (a boy scout one usually). Now this little 10 year old girl is being suspended and possibly expelled for a pair of scissors that were never even brought out of her backpack, but were found in an unrelated search! Worse was that the little girl was hauled off to jail in handcuffs! - Literally! Truthfully, where is the crime here?
