    Default Imaginary grenade causes suspension

    7 year old Alex who lives in Colorado has been suspended for throwing an imaginary grenade at an imaginary box. Seems to me that the message that we are sending our children is "don't fight back". I have not had a thought about the conspiracy theory being in our schools until lately. Just seems a little too neatly planned. Most schools now have such a policy.

    The progressives are more concerned about what our kids eat at school than what they learn!!!

    Do you have a link t the story?
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

    Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company.

    So sad there are kids all over being suspended for water guns, bubble guns, a piece of paper that looks like a gun etc. Overreaction, but when I called the cops on the 4 kids with a gun at the bus stop they said they would see if they could get someone to check it out. They came the kids hid the gun, waited for the cop to leave and picked it back up, I called and let them know and the kids took off and they couldnt find them. When I asked why not go to there house, they said we didnt get their names.... 4 kids from 12-16 with a gun at a school bus stop, oh and the best part the reason I called was they were shooting it the ground. I just shook my head.

    Sorry, I don't have a link. It ( headline ) came up on my Juno home page. The name of the school was the Mary Blair Elementary ( and just Colorado not the town's name ).

    Your cops sound kind of like some around here. See no evil, hear no evil, etc.

    Don't feel bad We got 'em here to. One of 'em' thought it was horrible that one of our local ranchers/hunters had hung a dead coyote on a barbed wire fence.
