    No tolerance policies make little sense. I also don't like weapon possession crimes. If someone uses a knife against another person, that's a crime. Having a tool shouldn't be. Don't they still issue weapons for some classes like biology?

    Even if I was in high school today, this wouldn't have been a problem. I skipped school to go fishing. Why go after school when you can go all day? I now realize I was just making the school safer. :laugh:

    I think this will get thrown out, given that it happened in Georgia.
    For example, I went to a firearms certification class back east last winter. One of the attendees mentioned that a few months ago he was going to take a flight to a class somewhere. He had as a carry on bag his pack that doubles as a range bag. During the TSA grope and feel, they found in his pack a few 9mm rounds and trace amounts of gunpowder ( he does his own reloading). He didn't know anything was in his pack at all. Of course all heck broke loose and they wanted to charge him. He then explained the whole situation clearly, they cleaned out his pack and he was one his way. Point being - it was an honest mistake, and cool heads prevailed. I hope the same thing happens with this kid.

    The police say that black powder residue gave them cause to do an entire search. I didn't know that black powder was illegal, and would justify a search.

    We have allowed this BS to exist, in an effort to make schools safe. I contend that five or six teachers carrying concealed firearms would be safer than Zero Tolerance and No Gun Zones!

    In this case, I have to wonder what the police and a search dog were doing at the school in the first place!

    Nowadays it is routine for sniffer dogs to patrol parking lots. School property, their rules.

    I am not defending the school being idiotic regarding the knife though - I too took guns to school and if a guy got a cool one then the principal and the biology teacher sure wanted to see it - not because they were scared, it was because they loved cool guns!

    There's some fairly significant details missing from this pile of bubblegum news source, which then cites another source that is also missing the same details.

    Ya'll can do your own homework.

    Repeating myself from another forum, i don't agree with the charges or cops searching peoples cars.

    What i do have a problem with, is the bottom feeding blog bullbubblegum being passed around.

    How am i keeping my head in the sand by knowing more about this incident than you?

    Quite to the contrary, you're the one with your head in the sand.

    If you had done some research you likely wouldn't have posted this article. That or you would've cited a source with all the details.

    You did neither.

    This type of reporting, and those who pass it around unconsciously really tick me off.

    Funny.
    If you have more facts than the article then post the damn things instead of having a 2 yr old tantrum.

    That's what stopped the school shootings in Israel. Maybe I should post the picture of the teacher and students with a long gun on her back.

    Instead of bringing the teacher an apple on Monday morning.....bring her a 30 round mag for her Tavor. I like it!

    I refuse to throw a tantrum though. :laugh:
    The Marietta Daily Journal - Lassiter student arrested for knife at school

    So it looks like he had a couple more knives. I keep a Leatherman with multiple blades that length in my vehicle which would be a felony.

    The Marietta Daily Journal - Rep Setzler zeroing in on changing school zero tolerance law
    Sounds a lot more reasonable than what's they're currently doing.

    That is a pretty sorry thing for them to do.
    They should be thankful he spends his free time fishing.
    I have about 90 Poles and over a hundred reels. Bought a lot when Joes closed.
    I keep my grandkids in tackle anytime they need any. Much better place for them along the rivers and lakes than out in some drug house.
    If those asinine laws would have been there when I went to school, I probably would have been sentenced to life for their dumbazz zero tolerance crap. Hunting knives, fishing knives machetes, firearms were always with ,me. I loved to hunt and fish. Now that gets you hard time.
    What a bunch of sick, sorry azz bunch of commie socialist school administrators we have now.
    They would rather have the kids out selling crack and robbing all the neighbors.

    Zero tolerance gives a school district the opportunity to not have to exercise common sense. I can't believe a a kids fuure is going to be ruined over what may turn out to be several knives locked in a car.
