ZERO tolerance???? Weren't they just teaching COMPLETE tolerance??? No such thing as a bad idea? No culture better than any other? Etc., etc., etc....??? (Whoops! I think their hypocrisy is showing!)

I think the pics of my son helped spawn this topic!

Certainly. It's to relieve from the public school administration A) any need to actually think, B) any need to take responsibility for their actions. "It's the RULE! I can't do anything about it because it's the RULE!"

Zero Tolerance! A lawyer's dream come true

We've really seen some ridiculous treatment of kids come out of this thinking. I would also ban news coverage of this stuff too.Last year a girl was thrown out of school for having aspirin in her purse, which is a drug, and the school was allowed to search anything on her person without a warrant based on the consent she gave by attending.Bullshit.

No! Man that was easy.

Kids have to deal with Zero Tolerance and now adults will have to deal with Project Exile. It is all for your own good.

Case by case.

Zero tolerance = zero common sense. An innocent G.I. Joe was detained because of it. Oh yeah, and a normal kid was expelled from school.[whacko]

This sounds like a good way to ruin a company, or any organization. Everybody voluntarily turns themselves into mindless robots, and nobody thinks for themselves about the best way to do things.

It's a great way to ruin a country, too. See thread "Alexis de Tocqueville called it" [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?id=71422[/url]
