Zero Tolerance (for Common Sense)

Here's a good one from Rhode Island. Unfortunately, stories like this are all too common anymore.

The short version is that a high school senior was disallowed from having his senior picture put in the year book because he is posing with a broadsword. It violates the school's zero tolerance policy on weapons.

Just one more piece of evidence that the Youth Reclamation Program (public school system) has sunk so low in the muck that to try and unbury it would be a futile effort. We'd lose the excavation equipment in the mire. We need to just dynam---scratch that, nuke the whole works and start all over again.

This is so deplorable and low that I'm having trouble mustering adequate verbage without resorting to profanity. "Zero tolerance" is perhaps one of the most deceptive, agenda-serving, truth-denying, evil concepts we've ever allowed in the schools. Why?

Well, zero tolerance equates the kid from FFA who accidentally brought his knife to school with the gangbanger who's packing heat and has the intent to do violence. Worse yet, it means that the kid who gets bullied and gang-beaten receives the same treatment as his aggressor(s) if he fights back. And woe to the hero who would rescue the 90lb victim from the agony of oppression, for they will be prosecuted all the same.

Zero tolerance is one of the many tools of Satan that serves to emasculate our youth. It's a wonder anyone joins the military anymore since they're trained from the earliest of ages that fighting under any circumstance is simply unacceptable. Why even if you're throwing a punch to stop someone from raping your sister, that's fighting and it will not be tolerated.

I really wonder about the intelligence of anyone who would push or uphold such an idiotic, ridiculous policy. If their intelligence is above that of an ape, their attitude certainly must be "eyes wrenched shut."

Sure, nobody wants a kid shooting up a school. But damn it, no one's willing to admit that the only thing that's going to stop him is, by necessity, someone else with a gun.

I guess the gritty reality of defending one's own life is just too much for some people to stomach. They'd rather write feel-good rules that bind the power of good and be raped by the powers of evil, all the while telling themselves that it's consensual.

Which makes me it?

Interesting blog, Captain America! It is true, the YRP (Youth Reclammation Projection) continues to ride high and unabated in the Nanny State. I was talking with a kid that attends Catalyst a few weeks ago that just got into a fight... well, that's not the right word for it. The right phrase would be he was receiving an ole fashioned butt-whipping. Why? Because he knew if he returned blows he'd be thrown out of school for 3 days, and receive an ISS (in-school suspension) as well. So this young man takes a wicked beaten for a something he didn't start, couldn't deal with appropriately when it happened, and then gets all the lovely "coward," "wuss" and other comments because the kid wants a clean record. Are you kidding me? The kid can't stand up for himself? Where's the dignity of that? I mean, afterall, isn't that what the YRP is all about, granting dignity to all? What about self-respect? What about the increase of the kid's self-esteem now having to walk around being called a pansy because he wasn't willing to get thrown out of school for three days for getting in a fight over something he didn't actually do? Man, if that's not a double standard I don't know what is? They say on one hand they are all about those things until they are excercised by someone that takes it to its natural conclusion and then they get reprimanded. This is the feminization of America at its best. My blood pressure is on the rise, I should end here before I end up throwing my computer through a wall (and then potentially be arrested for aggravated assault on a computer or some insane thing!). Here's to the YRP, my bottom's up!

Oh yeah, thanks for the blog. Going 35 days or whatever between this blog and your last is way to long. Especially when you check it everyday! Keep em coming Captain America, I'll keep reading (and responding).

Okay, what kind of nerd poses with a broadsword in his senior picture? I think he should have been disallowed just to prevent him from unwittingly humiliating himself.
