Angry Crazy Zero Tolerance

"A suspended seventh grade Virginia Beach student will find out soon if he is expelled for the rest of the year for shooting an airsoft gun.

Like thousands of others in Hampton Roads, Khalid Caraballo plays with airsoft guns. Caraballo and his friend Aidan were suspended because they shot two other friends who were with them while playing with the guns as they waited for the school bus.

The two seventh graders say they never went to the bus stop; they fired the airsoft guns while on Caraballo's private property.

Aidanís father, Tim Clark, told WAVY.com what happened next lacks commons sense. The children were suspended for possession, handling and use of a firearm."

Yeah, the schools have no sense of balance on the issue.

he's a black kid, so that adds a potential racial component to all of this...

I saw the story this morning. He was basically playing "guns" in his own front yard, he and his friend minding their own business and behaving themselves while waiting for the bus.

The kid was very respectful and impressive during his interview. He seemed to be a well brought up young fellow.

If they had suspended all the kids in my elementary school who played guns at home, there would have been no students except for some of the girls.

This incident is a perfect example of beauracrats run amok.

Moronic all right. If the kids were doing this in their private property it has nothing do with the school. The idea of classing an airsoft gun as a firearm is stupidity personified.

"Caraballo and Adian"......... sounds like sleeper cell members to me -For Sure, they were right to crack down on them because of the names alone!
