If you threaten someone with

If you threaten someone with a knife attached to brass knuckles, why aren't you arrested? Seems this student needs to be at YDC rather than at an alternative school.

Isn't threatening someone

Isn't threatening someone with a knife attached to brass knuckles considered "assault with a deadly weapon"? Are the schools exempt from the laws of non-students? How much more room does the Alternative School have? One set of laws for the projects, one for the schools, one for the politicians, one for child abusers/molesters, how can there be "equal justice under the law"? Where does it stop?
