    Right because your school was populated with radical Muslims bent of taking over the school and crashing it into a skyscraper.

    The spoon that made Rosie fat is a huge kitchen ladle.

    Re: Boy Scout, 6, Suspended for Fork

    The article said fork, spoon, and a knife. Although the knife probably wasn't any danger to anybody (probably a bread knife or something, I'm hoping he wasn't suspended for a butter knife, considering they actually hand those out during lunch at my school), it is still against policy.
    Policy is made for a good reason. A threat exists so rules are created. Even if the child didn't bring his knife to school for a bad reason (supposedly to eat lunch), he still brought a knife. Just because the original purpose of him bringing it was to eat doesn't mean he couldn't have gotten angry at a pupil later on and done something regretable. A kid with a knife needs to be stopped. Somebody needs to tell him it isn't O.K. to do that, whether he meant harm or not.

    On the other hand, a 45 day suspension is ridiculous. Pulling the kid aside and holding the knife until the end of the day would be plenty of punishment for a kid that age. What will a 6-year-old learn from being put into a corrective school for that long?
