    Fla. high school student disarms gunman

    Zero tolernce meets no good deed goes unpunished.

    A 16-year-old Florida high school student says he was suspended for three days for wrestling a loaded gun away from a teen threatening to shoot.


    Fox4Now.com reports that the student, who attends Cypress Lake High School in Fort Myers, tackled the 15-year-old suspect on a school bus after he allegedly pointed the weapon at another student.

    Brings meaning to the adage "no good deed goes unpunished."

    Oh, I agree with Zero Tolerance. There should be zero tolerance for such asinine administrators. The citizens of that area should fire them on the spot. Just stop work, march to the office, and run them out of town on a rail.

    Some things are just so absurdly stupid as to need no additional evaluation, discussion, or debate. Just clean out their desk for them and hand them their walking papers--at the other end of town. Reason for termination: gross lack of judgement.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Not surprising at all given the current state of our schools, but utterly ridiculous nonetheless.
