    So back to the topic - are you willing to agree that people can see this action by the young man as a possible threat?

    Anyone who thinks that that is on the same level as a kid using his finger as an imaginary gun needs to have his head examined.

    Who is saying it is exactly the same? What I did say - and what you are missing - is that one can indeed use their fingers to signal a threat against another person. So all of these excuses and rationalizations claiming that it is entirely innocent are way off base. A physical gesture can indeed signal a threat.

    So? What youre missing is that the point of zero tolerance is that using a finger just as even playing with it is a threat that is automatically punished by suspension/expulsion- that defies logic and common sense.

    And I have stated over and over and over again in this thread that there are ways to review this policy and bring about changes.

    You support every wealth transfer scheme imaginable and even some that you haven't yet imagined. Wealth is property. Income is property. That's a good place to start.
