Fourth grader suspended for "terrorist threat", because of a ring.
A fourth grader in Texas was suspended from school because he brought a ring to school after had watching the new Hobbit movie and told a kid he was going to "make him disappear" in an obvious reference to the movie. Their reason for suspending him? His actions were considered a terrorist threat. Facepalm What happened to make believe and pretending? A kid shouldn't be accused of a terrorist threat by referencing something silly like a magic ring from a movie. What is wrong with this world? I feel like the next generation will grow up depressed because 90% of the time, they cant have an imagination because its wrong and they get punished for it.

Even more funny:

Quote:the boy has been suspended three times already, once for calling a black classmate black, the other for bringing a book to school that had a drawing of a pregnant woman.

Edit: apparently the journalist who wrote the article can't count Rolleyes

Personally I think we need to keep a close eye on RogueWarrior, as he looks mightily suspicious to me...Dodgy

You can thank the "Zero Tolerance" (an absurd concept - ask any machinist) for this kind of nonsense.

Any time you hear "zero tolerance" - you can assume the implementers of such policies could not find a realistic solution - so, they simply enact draconian measures.

It's what Nazis do.

If the article was written after his most recent suspension... Then yes, its three times already.

Texas, where you can carry concealed so long as you don't make a literary reference.

Gotta watch them edumacated ones.

Second biggest mistake the US made (after getting independence), annexing Texas.
