@BillRM,
That was the school issue until he became disruptive and police were called.

That would be like a shirt which said "Chevrolet" on it but didn't have a picture of car.

If it's referring to a Chevrolet, don't you mean a picture of a car with the hood up?

Being from a Ford family, I might not think GM cars are the most reliable on the market.

But still, second best in the world isn't too shabby for GM. Razz

The police officer should just have shot the little perisher, and that would have been an end to it.

Poor UK cops without firearms for the most part to handle students.

They would need to call in the armed cops like they did in this case.

ARMED police raided a house over a Facebook snap of an Action Man toy mortar.
Five cops — two with sub-machine guns — turned up after Ian Driscoll jokingly updated his profile picture on the site.
He used an Action Man as pals said they looked alike. Two months later police were called.
A Facebook user had spotted that behind the figure was the mortar.
They feared it was real even though its scale was given away in the uncropped picture by the skirting board and a TV remote control.
Ian, 43, of Tewkesbury, Gloucs, said: “They flashed a search warrant in my face and said it was lucky I was in so they didn’t have to break my door down.
“In the end they saw the funny side and everyone has been laughing about it. It was so stupid.
“I didn’t even notice the mortar in the background. I couldn’t believe someone thought it was real.”
A police spokeswoman said: “The information was given in good faith.
“We would much rather have a result like this than to put the public in harm’s way by not taking action.”

@Rockhead,
Un huh. I was going to let the other sink in.

Want some Harley wisdom.

Eighty - five percent of all Harleys ever built are still on the road today.


The other fifteen percent got their riders safely home.

@boomerang,
Well, it's both.

You're right about Zero Tolerance policies though.

Not only are they stupid, they are cowardly.

We pay school administrators to use their judgement, but when Zero Tolerance policies are employed it is clear that they prefer not to.

@parados,
What a laugh.

You can always be counted upon to defend any stupid act if it at all smacks of liberal ideology.

His "disruptive behavior" was refusing to remove the shirt. Worthy of involving the police and an arrest?

I have witnessed kids in classrooms not only defy teacher's instructions but taunt them and even curse them out. The police are never called.

This was ideologically motivated.

Finn, it is cool that you were there to witness this important story.

(I wasn't there, so it would be rather stupid for me to make comments about what actually happened for him to be arrested for "disruptive behavior".)

You seem to not know about the facts in the case. The police weren't called by the teacher.

@maxdancona,
Have you read the reportage concerning this story?

The kid was arrested for "disruptive behavior."

But maybe you have personal insight into the matter and know he tried to murder one of his teachers.

@Finn dAbuzz,
And do you know what this kid did to be arrested for "disruptive behavior" (in addition to refusing to take off the shirt)? The story doesn't say... which is why I think it is stupid to speculate either way.

Kids do get arrested from school for being a threat to teachers or other students. If the only reason was the t-shirt, then I agree that it was excessive. If the kid became a threat, then the arrest was warranted.

My only point is that reading into the story without the facts is ridiculous (unless you are trying to push an ideological agenda without regard to the facts).

@maxdancona,
According to what I read, the arresting police officer said he almost caused a riot which is why he was arrested. Not sure what constituted an almost riot.

"conduct in school almost incited a riot."

@revelette,
I think Finn's is saying the police had an ideological (i.e. anti-gun) reason for saying that-- and that all this nice kid did is wear a t-shirt.

And Finn was there, so he should know.
