That is just your opinion, it doesn't make it a FACT! I happen to love them and think they are attractive artwork.

Of course none of the morons posting here have even wondered what made this child...and he is a child think....that he needed a knife to threaten the girls. Was he bullied? Was he made the object of jokes and ridicule? Certainly, there is no excuse that justifies his actions to those of us who are adults, but his mind is not mature, and he needs to be questioned. After all, they can expell him, and/or put him on probation and/or send him to a juvenile facility, but eventually he will be released and could do more harm later. The authorities MUST find out why. If the girls or others were responsible for behavior towards him that caused him to do this, then they too need help. When I was a kid we played cowboys and indians and occasionally teased each other and the girls (as they did back), but, unfortunately it was a different world we did not know that those acts could cause some to later grow up to be violent towards others. No, I am not a "bleeding heart" liberal suggesting "psychrinking" instead of harder discipline, rather I am saying that we know NOW what we did not back THEN that "talking" to people can resolve problems before they start.
None of your reasons. He is a minority, this the reason.

Jim, your kids might go out one day and get tatoo's. My son is a college grad. Goes to work everyday wearing a suit and has a bunch of tat's on his neck, arms, hands, abs, back, legs. Just because you don't care for them doesn't make them wrong. I don't have body art because I don't feel they're for me. But I certainly won't look down on people who have them. What are you gonna do if you children get tat's? Disown them? Are you going to look down on them?

Never met or dealt with someone with visible tats above the shoulder or on the hands that wasn't a turdball. They look horrible and you are not taken seriously. Say what you want, they will always make people think you are a low life. How often do we see attractive females with horrible ink on their bodies. Imagine the same ink at age 50 and more. Still think it will be cute? Try to get it lasered off, it looks just like you had bad ink that was lasered off. The fad is on its way out. Now what? People still running around with tribal on their arms and tramp stamps. Real cute!

I had heard the same thing but thought it was a rumor so I checked their website. You are correct! The thinking is that if you will scar your body in such a way, there is some type of psychological issue. If they did it because 'everyone else is doing it' it could show poor decision making skills and that you are easily swayed to do the wrong thing.

That's your opinion now isn't? Not everyone thinks like you. If you don't like them you don't like them. If everyone in the world dressed like you, looked like you, and acted like you etc...Then the world would be one boring place. Like I said, my son has tatoo's. Was hired about 10 years ago with visible tatoo's. White collar worker, college graduate, goes to work neatly dressed in suit & tie everyday dealing with clients. You don't like body art? That's fine, that's your right not to. I don't have tatoo's because they are not for me. But the difference between you and me is I don't ride around on a high horse like you do insulting people because there is something they have that is not to my liking. You have to remember. There may be an item you wear, or the way you dress, maybe even the way you wear your hair like a comb over, dreadlocks, an out dated hairdo which someone doesn't like. That's doesn't give anyone the God given right to judge or call them childish names. To each his own, I believe.

How many successful business owners and community leaders do you see with visible tats? Not many! If you want to seal your fate with low paying, meaningless employment go right ahead and scar yourself all over with hideous ink. There's only a small percentge of people that find tats even remotely attractive. Your decision, just don't complain when good employment opportunities pass you by.

First of all, I don't have a low paying job. My husband and I have our own business. Our business keeps us living very comfortable. I retired to take care of my father who is suffering from Alzheimer's. Second.... Show me proof of that SMALL percentage of people who find tatoo's remotely attractive. Did you take a poll? Was this information posted in the U.S. Census? Because you find them hideous doesn't mean they are hideous to people who don't have them. You don't have the power to know what people think, now do you? Third..... You told me to go right ahead and scar myself with ink? You must not be able to comprehend what you read because I stated in both my comments that I don't have tatoo's because they're not for me........ Why don't you get out of that little world of yours? Visit the BIG CITIES we have here in the GOOD OLD USA.... Believe me you'll be surprised to see how many successful people has visible tat's. If body art makes you sick then that's your problem. If you don't like the way they look then that's just too bad, there's nothing you can do about it. You don't have to associate yourself with those who have tatoo's. I'm quite sure no one will lose sleep over your opinion.

Listen nutcase, you have no idea where I live or my experience with your kind. In you world it may be normal, in my world you people might as well not even apply. Say what you wish, your kind are severely limited in how far they move up in the world. Can you name any successful business leaders that have visible tats on the hands, wrists, neck or face?? Don't spend a lot of time thinking about that one. tats visible while wearing professional business attire make you look like a lowlife with poor decision making skills and you aren't taken seriously. At least in my world.

Nutcase huh? "Your kind"? Name calling? Wow, It's obvious you are unable of carrying on an adult conversation. I see you become angry when no one agrees with you. I don't know if anyone told you but, mature adults agree to disagree when there opinions are unalterable. It's too bad you don't know what that means..... What I do see from reading your comments are...... You have problems within yourself. You have some serious issues you need to address...... Enough said, I refuse to conversate with an immature individual like you. You surely will not be taken seriously with your display of ignorant gibberish.

So now you're a psychologist? No discussion needed, tat people are are of a lower class than most. Just answer the point I made. Name one successful CEO that has visible tats. There's none!

This happened at my son's elem. school and it WAS handled properly. The rules on such actions are clear, and have always been clear. Don't want to get kicked out or punished? Follow the rules! Very simple. As a parent of this school, I am extremely happy with the school's response and STILL trust them with my son daily.
