    If you do not like the school rules - you can
    1- lobby the school to change them
    2- lobby the school board to change them
    3- find a school with rules more to your liking
    4- home school your own children

    But you do not have the discretion to tell your kids to disobey school rules and expect they can get away with it.
    this is a message board. and its fair game to blast mindless bots for being mindless bots.

    No, that's not what I mean, because that didn't happen. You have no answer.

    You and I both know darn well that if this was not somehow connected to guns, neither you or lots of other gun lobby sycophants would give two craps about the topic. lets call a spade a spade and flush all this fascism and think for yourself crap down the toilet where it belongs.

    If my answer to you was any more in your face, the recipient would have serious lacerations. That is exactly what happened.

    I agree, the Ohio zero tolerance law needs to be amended. But in this case, if the school had actually followed the letter of the law, the boy would have been expelled without warning (zero tolerance). Instead, the school used common sense and warned the students, sent out three letters to parents over the course of a month warning them of the consequences if the students behaviour continued and still the boys ignored the warnings. So no, common sense didn't work and the school was forced to follow the law and suspend him. If he does it again, he'll be expelled. I don't have a problem with that.

    That must be pretty hard to do with you laying face down in the muck and mud after getting run over by such a direct response.

    Say the man who loves a mindless population. The rest of us would like thinkers. If we had more of them, idiotic finger pointing rules wouldn't exist.

    What does any of that patting yourself on the back and distorting my position have to do with school safety rules?
