    Kid in trouble for toy gun again -- because he turned it in

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/oddnews/...203058288.html

    A Pennsylvania 7-year-old was suspended and faces possible expulsion after accidentally bringing a toy gun to school, despite turning himself in.

    Well, he just learned a most valuable lesson : don't trust gov't officials ...and never turn anything in again.

    I'm a public-school educator, and this is just nitwittery. Why in the world would you punish a student for doing the right thing?

    h

    I hope you don't think that was the "right thing".
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
