It's only news because the usual suspects are trying to make it a race/religion issue. There have been plenty of other idiotic situations like this that didn't get the support by the hashtag/tumblr crowd (example: the kid who got kicked out of school for eating his poptart into the shape of a gun).

I don't disagree but hopefully it brings light to the idiocy of people in charge. I can understand a misunderstanding at first but to arrest him even after people knew it was a clock is asinine. In 8th grade I was in a theater tech class and literally blew up a model landscape for a project and no one batted an eye. People need to take a step back and figure out what actually needs to be taken seriously.

Unfortunately it won't. They're making this about "Islamphobia" and not the stupidity that's running rampant in our schools with kids being treated like criminals for making gun-like finger shapes and nibbling their food into vaguely gun shaped objects.

My feelings on that matter as well. This is another "movement" that people are going to get behind on social media, and not more than a couple weeks later it is going to fade in to the vast ocean of forgotten flavor of the week. The extent they went to; arresting, questioning, suspension is just ridiculous. I'd imagine a volcano at the science fair is no longer allowed.

Plot twist though, what if it really wasn't a clock. Hes' been invited to the white house to show Obama. Terrorist plan all along, White House is now compromised.

This

No one ever takes data into account. Is this the emo kid with a police record, poor grades and bad attitude, or is it the kind kid in school with decent grades and takes electronics electives? One is more worth investigating than the other.

you really think a white kid named John Smith would have received the same treatment? Yesterday some guy posted on reddit that he brought in a disarmed grenade to class and got an A for it.

I was wondering when this thread would make an appearence

It's amazing to see how middle/high school has changed since I graduated (2002). We had archery class, marksmanship classes, etc., etc. Someone blew somethign up in chem class ON PURPOSE, and the teacher replicated it so everyone could try for themselves.

How many examples do you need?

Times have changed, we use to play war or cops and robbers at recess. We had school wide water gun fights at the end of the year. The blame should be put on the faculty, not the race/religion card.

Uh, yeah. This has been going on for a couple years. It hasn't been on your radar because the MSM hasn't added a dash of racism to give you a boner.

Bringing a water gun on campus will probably land you a cool 20 years at this point.
