TYLER (KETK) — More unbelievable political correctness and lunacy, but in Maryland this time. An 18-year old kid who plays lacrosse is finishing up his last semester of high school and is looking forward to walking across the stage, which is so popular when you are a kid.
However, he made a mistake. He went hunting one night. The next day he drove to school and remembered he still has his Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun in his car.
He covers it up, rather thinks he does. Enter the school resource officer who walks around the parking lot. He spots the back of the kids car. On the back seat is a shotgun shell and the butt of the 12 gauge shotgun.
What happens next?
Do they call the kid down to the office for a chat to ask what the deal was or why he could not follow the rules? Did they tell him what bad judgment it was brining the shotgun to school was? No.
They march him down to the office and frisk him and handcuff him. Now, unless something happens, he's expelled.
Again, did the kid break the rules? Yes. But now they are throwing the book at him when he has no prior record of bad conduct.
Could they knock him down a letter grade? Could they make him do service? No, they are treating him like a kid who showed up at the front door of the school with a loaded gun.
Now, he's taking classes online to graduate and he's being treated like a criminal. I'm sure is he would have painted graffiti on the school wall or lead a protest, he'd be ok with a talking to.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
