Student Suspended Over Empty Shell Casing

Brady Gelsak, a 4th grade elementary student, was suspended from school 5 DAYS for brining an empty shell casing to school that was given to him as a souvenir by a Veteran on Memorial Day. Yet more Zero Tolerance=Zero Thought idiocy from some school idiotrators, I mean some out of control school administrators:

. . . After the piece of brass was confiscated, Ms. Geslak was called at work and told to come and pick up her son; he was being suspended for the next five days.

Her son was in tears when she got there. “I was totally shocked. I couldn’t believe this was happening,” she said.

“Ordinarily, I try to think ahead about things, but to me, this was something good, not bad. It was just an empty shell, not even from a real bullet. A sharpened pencil would be more dangerous than this piece of metal.” . . .

By that logic, every child with a stapler should be arrested. I mean, they could take over an airliner with that just as easily as nail clippers, and the internal springs could conceivably be used in a handgun...

So very true. Like his mother said, a sharpened pencil is far more dangerous than an empty shell casing. I imagine some of the scisors on the teachers desk, the mirror on the bathroom wall, or the tacks in the wall are more dangerous as well.
