    Boy Scout, 6, Suspended for Fork

    Should there be common sense exceptions to "zero tolerance" rules?

    Boy Scout, 6, Suspended for Fork - CBS News

    The school district's policy is enforced "regardless of intent" and "does not take into consideration a child's age," reports CBS News correspondent Jim Axelrod.

    But residents, and some lawmakers, are now wondering why schools can't apply a more common-sense discretion to such instances.
    Is it really asking too much to take intent into consideration when these incidents occur? How about if we also look at character and personality and mood?

    "Zachary wears a suit and tie some days to school by his own choice because he takes school so seriously," his mother said. "He is not some sort of threat to his classmates."
    "A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt

    This is a school administration that went overboard. That policy is meant to prevent another Columbine. It is not applicable to a 6 year-old cub scout.

    The school official responsible for this decision needs to be terminated for gross stupidity.

    This is profoundly dumb. They should start a recall campaign of their school board.

    The common sense gene is being slowly, but surely bred out of the human race.
