The First Candidate to Denounce this Wins the Election

Zero tolerance gone mad.

Boing Boing, Fourth grader suspended for using broken pencil sharpener. Note that the “use” was his trying to sharpen a pencil, not threaten someone.

    I had something similar to that happen to me way back in the 1950s when I was in elementary school.

    I found a piece of a letter opener on the playground and was bringing it to the teacher because I realized it was sharp and dangerous when I was stopped by another teacher and sent to the principal for “carrying a knife”. The principal would not let me explain why I had the object and I was reprimanded.

    At that instant I lost all respect for authority and realized that the best policy was to hide everything and lie to them as much as possible since I wouldn’t be believed when I told the truth anyhow.
