After reading the article about the issue at school. This is a travisty and a fucking disgrace to our school system. A display gun without a firing pin or no ammo is no reason to suspend or expel a student. It is as much a weapon as a school book unloaded without a way to fire. I think this is an ignorant display from my alma matre

Charles.. Jan Bergeson, principal, is nuts... I just don't understand. She got on tv an maked it sound like they were heros about how they 'handled' the situation.. First the teachers didnt do anything when the kids told that the student had a weapon.. Didnt go to a lock down mode.. they just let the student walk out of the class room at the end of the period.. what if the weapon worked? what happens if the kid did have the firing pen? they did a crap job.. and it was blown way out of proportion letting all the new stations come in and make their stories and have a news conference when the story was nothing

What has the New Pal administration done this time? Who is holding Jan Bergeson, Halik, and Mike Huey responsible for their DUMB, irresponsible mistakes??? Where is the School Board??? Signing away our children confidentiality rights? Who is in charge out there?
