Brody Middle School student is suspended for bringing a spent shotgun shell to class to show off what she did over the summer.
"We went to South Dakota and went to the Circle B Ranch," said Chenoa Martin, Jazmine's mother.And now for the bureaucratic moron:
"They picked up the shells as souvenirs of that event -- it was wonderful," said Chenoa Martin.
"I wanted to show it to my science teacher because he's into stuff like this," said Jazmine Martin.
Jazmine Martin said she never got the chance to show her teacher. During fourth period last week, she got pulled out of class and was questioned about her summer souvenir.
"This young lady brought a bag of shell casings and shared them with other kids," said Randy Gordon, Brody Middle School principal.It's not like she brought a bag of pot to share, idiot. She shared an empty shotgun shell.
Gordon said that even though they were empty, the shell casings are considered ammo, which violates the school's weapon policy.I tried to look up their policies on-line and "404 not found" appeared.Brody Policies and Procedures
"Well, it's kind of like toy gun problems schools have had. We suspend kids for bringing toy guns also. We want to make it clear to kids not confusing at all that anything with weapons, guns, it doesn't belong in school," said Gordon.Toy guns? What the French?
He's making it clear to the kids, alright. He's a power-hungry bureaucrat who likes to push kids around.
This posted comment says it all:
Why not prohibit paper cups at school, because they could be used to contain nitroglycerin or gasoline? An empty container is an empty container, nothing more.Indeed.
