Of?

This is just something stupid, not the start of a grand conspiracy.

I bet they'll grow up to be serial killers, or even better, proper anarchists :)

Will somebody please think of the children?! We clearly need to ban pencils from school, not to mention erasers, that could as well be used to emulate hand grenades!


Don't forget smoking doobies the the boy's room. :shifty:

I'm glad people point fingers at the school immediately, without knowing that the school will get in big trouble if other kids' parents complained.

Point fingers at (stupid) parents, please.

Before I read that, I'm guessing it's written by a female author.

edit: yep.

Yeah, schools have needed a reform for many years now. Shame they don't seem to be changing.

kids can be kids still, just because they can't emulate a gun doesn't mean that's not being a kid. No one would run away, its preventive behavior conditioning that is preemptive in nature.


This an atheistic amen to you brother. I worry about America and its gun culture.

Maybe the teacher should have taken the boys aside and told them what they did was not allowed in school and please not do that again?


Agree.

One last comment...glad the mother of the kid told him he did nothing wrong. I played with toy guns as a kid and went around the neighborhood acting like I was shooting my friends. No want I wanted to shoot someone for real. Probably because I had good parents that taught me right from wrong, real from fiction.

What a different world this is tho...


Yes it is move with it. No reason to have males to be cultured to become violent aggressive and venerating weapons.

You don't want your child to look up to you? Also, what's wrong with being a soldier?


No not really I want it to be its own person and understand my mistakes. Its not my child it would be the child I created its not my property to mould If I had one. As for soldiers a lot of reason but more so with the idea that no solider wants war travialised

Which will make future generations so much easier to control and manipulate once you breed any notion of resistance out of them from such a young age.


People like you worry me my friend resistance from what I live in the UK and its no utopia but I do not need to resist anything. Unless your a criminal you have nothing to fear.

There is such thing as common sense, it's just subjective. Kids acting as kids shouldn't be discouraged, if anything it should be guided and the school is doing a **** poor job of it.




When I was in grade school we did the wimp test were you rub the erasers on your arm as many times back and forth as you can before wimping out. Granted it was as stupid then as I remember it now and it left a blister on my arm for a long time. BURN THE EVIL ERASERS.


Define common sense then without meaning "the stuff I believe" and yes the school should have been shut down for allowing children to hurt themselves

That's just sad but then school is for leaning not socialising but id allow it.

I do love anarchism

The teacher acknowledges that she asked them to stop and they did. She then proceeded to take them to the Principal's office for suspension...

Just another example of the total lack of common sense and reasoning of our school faculty... This is just absolutely ridiculous.
