Six-year-old Cub Scout terrorist nabbed in Delaware!
Sometimes things are just too utterly stupid to believe. And the frequency that such stupidity reveals itself among the nation's educators is troubling.
Six-year-old Zachary Christie, fresh from his first Cub Scout meeting brought his folding fork, spoon and (yes) knife to school. He didn't sneak it onto the bus or into the school. He brought it because he was proud and excited and wanted to share his excitement. Bad move Zach. That's him up above. Vicious looking little tyrant, isn't he?
The camping tool was discovered on the school bus, where the bus driver informed school administration who followed their "zero tolerance" policy and suspended the kid for 45 days, AND, this award-winning six-year-old excellent student may have to spend those 45 in the state's reform school, presumably with actual violent offenders. Won't that teach the 6-year-old menace a valuable lesson?!
Read it all here.
Check out his mom's website, helpzachary.com.
Thank heaven we live here in South Dakota where common sense prevails! Oops! Wait a minute. When a student entered a high school here with a shotgun under his coat, we didn't outlaw shotguns in High School, we outlawed coats in High School! I know kids who have been suspended for three days for possessing nail clippers, while others who committed assault got one day of in-school detention.
I nabbed the photo of Zach and his mom, Debbie and his pop, Curtis from the New York Times.
