My friend was arrested and expelled from JHU. In this case I don't know who to blame more, people who make anti-knife laws, or my friend for being a moron.

    At least he wasn't a very good student to begin with, so I guess it wasn't that much of a loss for him cuz he was getting pretty terrible grades anyway.
    Blame the assholes who called the cops for someone having a knife.

    Probably thinks the kids didn't get enough punishment.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    No, that's probably an unfounded assumption on your part.

    I bet you also assume that because you're against this, this must be a liberal thing and therefore liberals must favor it.

    No. But I blame our litigious society for this. And the left does happen to be the back pocket of the trial lawyers...

    To a person, I'm sure there are liberals just as outraged as I am at this. But let's be honest here, these zero tolerance laws all about saving schools from paying huge lawsuits then they are about protecting kids.
