A South Carolina high school freshman has been expelled from school for possession of a butter knife.

Amber Dauge was by all accounts a good student at Goose Creek High School. She had joined the Junior ROTC program and was a member of the school's chorus. But she says officials have overreacted to an honest mistake.

Her reasoning doesn't even sound right. You walked out the house with a butter knife b/c you realized you were going to be late. You took it to school (what was wrong with sitting it on the porch; putting it in the mailbox; throwing it in your parents car?).
