    Controversy Over Suspension Of 2 Easton High Lacrosse Players

    Talbot County schools are under fire for suspending two Easton High School lacrosse players over equipment they kept in their bags to fix their sticks.
    “It’s a huge overreaction for a very minor infraction, and it wasn’t handled well at all,” said Graham Dennis, suspended student.
    Laura Dennis’ son Graham had a pen knife and a Leatherman that school authorities found while they searched a team bus before it headed to a game. He now faces jail time and damage to his permanent record.
    “A police officer came and took him away in handcuffs and they said ‘Give us 40 minutes, we have to process him,’ Laura Dennis said. “So they did mug shots and they fingerprinted. I was able to pick him up from the police department 45 minutes later.”
    Doug Edsall’s son Casey had a lighter he also used to fix his lacrosse stick. The school classified it as an explosive device.

    I knew a girl in HS..straight A student, honor roll, secretary of the student government...all around good girl. During random vehicle searches one day they found a steak knife and an apple core in her truck. She received OSS (out of school suspension) for two weeks, lost all of her exam exemptions, and wasn't allowed to attend any extra functions, including student counsil meetings.

    Apple cores will **** you up.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Zero tolerance rules are great because that means teachers and school administrators don't have to actually think or have an opinion or use judgment!

    No point, carry on. Ignore that two good kids, who used some common, non-threatening tools to fix sports equipment should face suspension, criminal records and possible other punishments. Nothing to discuss or worry about here... not all...

    This actually reminds me. I have a friend, smart guy who goes to Johns Hopkins University. One night he was walking home from a party twirling his butterfly knife in his hand. In Maryland, being in possession of almost any bladed weapon, including switchblades and butterfly knives is illegal. He got spotted by a fellow student who promptly notified the police. 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.
