Poor parenting, or selective deafness. Only one of which can be remediated by punishment to defined student's posterior. Remediation may have to be repeated multiple times, if ears are not cleaned out completely.

Tribunal?

Why such a fanciful word for what should just be "expelled." On top of this many would deny our teachers the right of self protection at school. This article sounds more like a police report of a getto than a school. Why does the school system allow them to attend "alternative program" at the school instead of in a prision. Why have we placed our kids in a place with convicted felons, calling it school?

My Take On The Gun Ban Bill.

Our elected representatives and even those Liberals that still believe in the US Constitution should not accept or pass any part of the bill "except" portions that deal with the mental and criminal background checks of all citizens. This back ground check should include the early year of education and denial access to any weapons to those that have past school records of violent behavior, bullying and show of mental instability, ect. Also, the lack of a high school diploma would be also be a denial to own or pocess a weapon.

Just think, this is only one school district in one county in a one month period.

Some of these are the makings of future mass murders, armed robbers and killers of fellow man.

The sad part is, instead of attacking "the in the face" real problem we have a King SMNCICBHO, The Hammer & Sickle man banning the guns from decent citizens and they will pocess the guns.
