Girl Suspended for Bringing Rocks to School

Click to Read

Girl Suspended for Bringing Rocks to School The cops were called when a nine-year-old Milwaukee girl boarded her school bus with rocks, a hammer and a screw driver in her backpack. The fourth grader wanted to show her friends her new hobby of cracking rocks open to find sparkly ones on her way to school. After the principal and a threat assessment team reviewed the incident, Danielle Christenson was suspended for three days and now has a permanent mark on her academic record.

Well I better alert my daughter not to share her rock collection and affinity for sparkly things with her friends.

i say lock her up. at guantanamo. water board her. find out what is really going on. that's the only way. torture. don't let her speak to a lawyer. she's probably on a watch list somewhere. find out which one and leak it to fox news. then, when she gives up the goods, put her on a chain gang. the geneva conventions, child labor laws are totally quaint and should not even be invoked in a situation like this. how many more civilians have to die before we realize that we are fighting a GLOBAL TERROR WAR?!!!

Were they afraid she was going to hijack the bus and drive it into a building?

It's the whole "no tolerance" policy - which is a joke, but that's another discussion... This girl should not have brought the hammer and screwdriver to school w/out getting her teacher's permission first, however, she should not have been suspended for it. Her intent was not to use it on anyone or anything in a harmful way.

Is there any comment you can make without going off into a rant? If this is what causes you to be suspended 3 days then I may not have made it out of elementary school. How do you suspend a 9 year old? They didn't even have suspensions for us until middle school, and that was if you were REALLY bad and got into fights all the time. So ridiculous.
