I'd give my kid an avocado and tell him to (gently) toss it to the principal upon his return to school

I really don't know wtf I would say if I had to sit down with school admins and talk about something so utterly retarded as that if my kid did that.

In all seriousness, I agree. WTF do you say. Remember when Uncle Buck met the Principal? I think it would go something like that.

See...I KNOW this is in my future. No doubt. My soon to be 6 year old is GOING to do something along these lines and I'll have to deal with it.

I'll be sure to mention TD when I'm being interviewed on the news about whatever he does...

I live in texas so I'm hopeful my kids teachers aren't like that. Him and I play fight with guns, swords, superhero powers and bombs on a daily basis. Of course sometimes we use nerf guns and others toys (please don't turn me in...)

re: Colorado boy, 7, reportedly faces suspension for tossing imaginary grenade


Chalk it up to "zero tolerance policies", which have my vote for the worst concept ever introduced to schools.

Anyone ever thought about the logic behind "zero-tolerance policies?"

They are policies designed to look like safeguards, but in reality they are simply tools to cover the arse of administrative figures in the event they make a retarded decision.

So with "zero-tolerance policies," no decision has to be made, because it's zero-tolerance.

Throw an imaginary grenade at recess and get suspended?

"See? See? It's in the school handbook. ZERO TOLERANCE! There's nothing we can do to help you!"

So essentially zero-tolerance policies are designed to relieve administration of one of the biggest responsiblities they have: make decisions.

Only cowards or inept leaders/decision-makers implement zero-tolerance policies.

Haha...the back of my sons' door is their armory, completely with various Nerf swords, maces, axes, and shields. It's fairly cool.

People in CO didn't use to be like this either. Texas better be selective as they try to bring people from the northeast and Cali

Good god, you've hijacked my brain! Seriously though, I agree 100%, and complain about it all the time. I always say if you want to be an administrator and make an administrator's salary, then by god use the brain you're supposed to have that earned you the job. If we're going to just "go by the book" with these zero tolerance rules, then what the hell are we wasting that salary for? Lets just put a damn book in the front office to refer to when there is a question.

Biden has been full of his common gaffes in France but it is okay... (When Romney -even thought of going overseas- he was reported by the media as an embarrassment.)

Anyway good thing ole smilin Joe didn't do this visiting a US school.

ZERO TOLERANCE and all...

They're probably going to put him on adderall now because he has a big imagination.

Yeah. Half of my drawings were of people shooting each other. Plus I would probably be on all kinds of ADHD meds.
