Boy Suspended for Bringing Paperclip to School

Recently, redditor FatManManFat posted the suspension letter his little brother had received. According to the school, he was suspended for bringing a weapon. I know what you’re thinking: “Gun? Knife? An object shaped like a weapon?” The last one is correct, but what it was will leave you confused. Check out the letter below:

    Guess teachers won't be able to staple papers together anymore a staple is a DOUBLE EDGE WEAPON and could be used as a brass knuckle….and God forbid a staple remover could rip your throat out…and all those deadly sharp pointed pencils that can be used to stab and the text book could be used as a club and Bludgeon every one to death and Lunch room is a armory of weapons forks and knives and spoons to cook drugs ..I guess I'm lucky to have made it out alive….We are living in a world of BRAIN DEAD people I think the Zombie Apocalypse is here…..

    Whoa! not the dreaded PAPER CLIP!?!? How the heck do you bend one into the shape of a weapon? Did it look like a gun? Here's a "Hurtful Name Calling" for the administrators at this school: You bunch of Frickin MORONS!

    It appears non of you have worked in a jail or prison.. As asinine as it sounds, all of the things in his pocket could be used as a weapon. I've seen them made and used. However, I agree the schools need to get a grip and stop looking at everything as though it were a weapon. Damn, some of those kids practice marshell arts, does that mean the schools ar going to ban their hands and feet????

    OMG!! I am NEVER going to Staples again!!!Who knew I'd be taking my life in my hands just by walking in the door!!Thank goodness the establishment is looking out for my well being!!

    This isn't a jail and it isn't a prison. It is a school. There are hundreds, probably thousands of objects in the school that could be used as a weapon. Schools have lost any and all logical thought and common sense. They hide behind the mantra of zero tolerance and following the rules to justify their complete lack of independent thought and deductive reasoning. Which is what they are trying to drill into the minds of the students. Think only what the state wants/allows you to think and obey without question. America has never faced such a menace before in it's history. These are dark and dangerous times we live in.

    To add to my comment, even though the Marine Corps expected my to obey orders at times without hesitation or question they still encouraged initiative and independent thought when the need arose. Something we see lacking in our schools more and more on a daily basis.

    Todays liberal America, led by a giant shit stain called Obama. I feel sorry for future generations. America is becoming a sespool of politicaly correct idiots, corrupt politicians, queers, welfare dependent maggots, illegals & gun grabbing assholes that want the constitution voided. This is just another example of the insanity taken hold of America. You dumbasses that voted the muslim in twice should be shot in the face for what you have done to this country!

    Careful sounds like rumor spreading to me there buddy. Not to mention hurtful teasing, hurtful name calling, insulting remarks and maybe social excluding

    The main thing that's lacking more than anything else in our schools today is common sense. This zero tolerance and political correctness crap is out of control.. A gun is a weapon a large knife is a weapon true enough. A paper clip is not a weapon nor is a pop tart eaten in the shape of a weapon.nor is a kids finger pointed at someone like he was shooting a gun a weapon, Its a kid playing with his friends perfectly normal male child behavior.. We need to put some common sense back in our school systems or we are going to have a bunch of mal adjusted misfit sissies and I see it as the plan for a dumbing down of our great American culture so that it can be more easily controlled by a monarchy government that answers to no one. They start in our schools like this then as the people give up more and more freedom's with more regulations and laws soon we are no longer citizens but subjects. Obama all ready does what ever he wants with out consulting anyone it's started already next comes martial law and then the confiscation of our property land food weapons and eventually our freedom.

    You people are ignorant of the real world. Do you know what could happen if a child inserted an unauthorized paper clip onto the tip of a portable nuclear weapon? I stand with the school and this decision. They have to make our children SAFE at all cost!

  11. says

    There is no more dangerous thing in the world than adhering to the law without thinking whether what you are doing makes sense. No wonder all the kids today are afraid of their own shadow and will jump a foot when you yell "boo". What a bunch of feckin' eedjits.
