This is what happens when the brain dead are in control - Teacher Suspended on 'Weapons' Charge -- For Showing Students Garden Tools!
I truly cannot believe how far this nation has sunk to accomendate the brain dead egocentric so-called leaders in various public institutions! How does anyone expect the next generation to learn anything with this kind of crap going on. This happened in Chicago but equally disturbing reports come out of Florida, California and elsewhere. With this crap going on the US will develop a new catagory for stupid, uneducated, no fucking common sense idiots. And for those of us who are older this is fricking scary because these are the types of people who will end up in responsible jobs when it comes to caring for the sick or disabled because no one of intelligence will be left to do a decent job.

Teacher Sues School over Suspension for 'Weapons' Charge: Showing Students Garden Tools
[link to cnsnews.com]

Attorneys for The Rutherford Institute have filed a civil rights lawsuit against a Chicago public school district on behalf of a second-grade teacher who was suspended after he displayed garden-variety tools such as wrenches, pliers and screwdrivers in his classroom as part of a "tool discussion" in his class.

Despite the fact that all potentially hazardous items were kept out of the students' reach, school officials at Washington Irving Elementary School informed Doug Bartlett, a 17-year veteran in the classroom, that his use of the tools as visual aids endangered his students. Bartlett was subsequently penalized with a four-day suspension without pay - charged with possessing, carrying, storing or using a weapon.

"This school district's gross overreaction to a simple teaching demonstration on basic tools such as wrenches and pliers underscores exactly what is wrong with our nation's schools," said Rutherford Institute Pres. John Whitehead.

Here is yet another example of idiotic over-reactions by police and schools. With all of the violence promoted in video games, on TV and in movies - doesn't anyone think they should start there rather then graphics on tee shirts?

Man arrested for wearing profane novelty t-shirt in city park...
[link to www.thesmokinggun.com]
A man wearing a novelty t-shirt with a sexually charged message was arrested Saturday after refusing a police order to leave a South Carolina park due to “the shirt with that phrase on it,” according to investigators. Michael Miller, 50, was spotted “with a shirt that read ‘I May Not Be Mr. Right But I’ll Fuck You ‘Til He Shows Up,’” according to a Spartanburg Department of Public Safety report.

High School Forces Student To Remove 'Gun' T-Shirt...
[link to connecticut.cbslocal.com]
Eighteen-year-old Matt Zingarella told WTNH-TV that he was exercising his free speech rights by wearing the shirt to school Monday, but he was immediately asked to change it.

The shirt has a picture of a gun that’s banned in Connecticut and a statement that says, “I plead the second,” referring to Second Amendment gun rights. Zingarella says he was expressing his frustration with new state gun laws.

Zingarella says it doesn’t appear the shirt is banned by the school dress code.

School officials say the dress code does ban such shirts because they can disrupt the educational process.

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Wow, this is even more ridiculous than the guy yesterday arrested and had his car searched by a bomb robot at a mall in phili simply for wearing camo.


The hysterical morans are going to cause a big problem one day, and truly innocent people will be harmed/killed.

The cops should raid every car repair shop in the country and confiscate all of the weapons in them. All construction workers should turn in their weapons too. Search all junk doors in kitchens for screw divers and hammers. We must protect the children.

Here's a quote from someone else who read the article:

"Seems arbitrary to simply ban something on the premise that it's supposedly disruptive to the educational process. This is nothing more than conditioning generations of citizens to be hypersensitive to ideas and opinions that do not mesh with what the social engineers think. Surely such a message printed on a garment isn't going to pull students away from their math exercises. The only way such a thing is disruptive is if the intent of the educational system is to condition students into seeing such concepts as the second amendment as a threat."

"This story has been posted before, and we have new data.
The student has finished the school-mandated suspension and has gone back to school - WEARING THE SAME SHIRT!

He is not alone, there are many students who went and got that same NRA shirt and are wearing it in solidarity with the student.
The DA has not (yet) filed any charges against the student, and I can't imagine that they would ... and get it to stick!"


"The cops charged him with disrupting the educational process, a felony. The DA has not rendered an opinion."

"This is a totally different incident. You are referring to Jared Marcum of West Virginia. This is a totally different exercise in stupidity by yet another school."
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

What type of comment is this?

Why is there a link? Because the whole article can't be posted.

We carry pocket knives around all the time as tools here on the farm and in the cars. This is an essential tool to have unless you want to use your teeth... which aren't that effective with twine, twigs, in gardening, opening up packages, etc.

boah, i cannot believe this is happening.

i mean last week i was in a big "mall" here and gathering for suitable kitchen knifes. they even have these ultra sharp japanese steel whatever knifes presented for anybody to touch and pick up (show room with various tourist floating).

my mate said to me:
in the u.s. those knives would be chained, because it could be a security risk to anybody. if you're coming close to one, you would be tazered by one of the 5 security guards.

we were heading over the schocolade show room and bought some of this: (left kid)

The "educational process" they apply is all about the cessation of thought. Of course any t-shirt with a message would "disrupt" that.

Looks like you've had a bit too much to think:

The article left the reason for the suspension, the pocket knife, out of the article so it would seem unreasonable. Pocket knives aren't allowed in Chicago schools. Yes it is ridiculous he was suspended and yes they went too far but everyone is getting worked up about 'garden tools' when that was not why he was suspended. This has already been copied to other forums without mentioning the knife. Get the facts before you post (I know that isn't liked around here).
