Zero tolerance: you can lay on the ground, beat to a pulp, and do nothing, and still be expelled. Might as well fuck the other bastard up.

Exactly. If I were to ever have a kid that was going to a zero tolerance school I'd tell him to go all out if he ever got into a fight because the result will be the same.

As a strong liberal progressive, I oppose zero tolerance and think this kid's arrest was stupid.

Because rational adults can make decisions based on all the evidence available to them, rather than knee-jerk an automatic arrest reaction.

Rational adults also can explain the reasoning that led to a decision.

Kids' lives are interrupted or destroyed by horrific school policies and the "juvenile justice system" far too often; disproportionately affecting 'at risk' groups, the poor, and people of color. Nobody does shit.

Until the victim is named fucking Ahmed Mohamad, apparently. Then the POTUS personally intervenes!

Too bad this towel-head POS has to be the face of the movement. When liberals stand up against wearing head scarves in school as being a violation of church and state separation the same way they pitch fits about Christmas trees, I'll believe they're sincere. Either the school is an environment of enforced laicite, or it isn't.

The question is: Why did he bring the device to school?

Also this happened in the deep red state of Texas, another reason not to blame liberals. Schools are managed by the state.

It's about racism?

No, it is about a teenager who was supposedly called a "Terrorist Bomb Maker' by class mates and who then decided to build a mock briefcase bomb and present it as his school project "clock".

And it is about a family that chose to enable this behavior designed to scare his peers instead of having his claims of bigoted comments investigated.

Race? Since when did religion = race. That won't fly with me. Stop bullshitting.

MSNBC this very evening. I PERSONALLY watched this boy sitting next to his mom on the Chris Hayes show say precisely what I relayed.

Now that you know that, how did it change your position?

Could you at least use a good English translation tool like Google or something. That was incoherent.
