    No, let’s not get on the ridiculous train again. John, you really don’t need to prove again that you have no idea what really happens on schools.

    Actually he does. It was in the news lately that some little girl got suspended for saying she was going to shoot another little girl with a BUBBLE GUN. So, yes, he does know what is going on in schools.

    The little girl was a kindergartener, and she didn’t even have the bubble gun with her, she just spoke about it. She had to undergo a psychological evaluation before she was allowed back in school. So, this strip is not at all ‘out there’.

    Yep, all a kid has to do is point their finger like a gun, and get suspended. That happened too.

    You have to wonder what the future holds for the children that are growing up in this oh so warped attitude about violence. The real world is not going to be easy on them. It seems to me, that the people that are pushing this agenda are unknowingly creating a whole generation of potential victims. The children should be taught about the psychology of violence. This would be healthier than sending them out in the world, with only a deer caught in the headlights reaction, when they are confronted with reality.

    another girl was suspended because she had a ripped piece of paper that “happened” to look like a gun and a boy pointed it out.

    They’re not unknowingly creating a generation of victims. Victims are what are wanted by the government so it can make them dependent on the government, not themselves.

    I was recently reading about how government bureaucrats advance their careers by always following the rules and never thinking on their own, which attracts a certain type of mentality. Then it dawned on me this also explains mindless adherence to all sorts of “zero tolerance” rules in cases like the one in this cartoon.


    (I’m surprised that cdward is so out of contact with what is happening in the schools today. My school-teacher GF tells me children aren’t allowed to tell the “How do you eat an elephant” joke because it is violent.)

    Just do what the guard said and drop it. Then it will break and no evidence!

    That was my thought, too… you can’t suspend him if you can’t find it! ;-)

    Cdward must watch movies all day and never listens or watches the news. I wonder if knows people in charge can’t tell the difference between and automatic assault weapon and a semi automatic rifle?
