Now that's how you fix the problem. There's no need to take a child into custody for something that he didn't know was a crime. But he did need (and got) "a good talking to."

OK-- WHERE IS THE PARENTS?????? THEY NEED "THE TALKING TO". THE KID IS ONLY IN 2ND GRADE!!! GIVE ME A BREAK-- PARENTS NEED TO STEP IT UP AND GET INVOLVED WITH THEIR KIDS. EVEN DOWN TO SHOW-N-TELL!!!!

Evacuated the school? Overreaction?

In this case better to over react than to under react. You forget the lawyer are just waiting for something to happen

That's kinda funny, when I was a kid I brought a deactivated grenade to school at Glenwood Elemantary when I was in the second grade. Everyone thought it was really awesome the teacher even gave me a star for the day. how times have changed. I am forty years old now and I can remember have to take the hunters safety course in school. Fairview middle school I believe still has a shooting range in the basement but it is alse deactivated.
