Yes, we have idiots in our school leadership positions. We have allowed our leaders to convince us that an irrational phobia of guns is normal.

We should pity idiots like Darrel Prioleau. Poor Darrel was probably abused by his mother.

"OWINGS, MD -- The father of a middle schooler in Calvert County, Md. says his 11-year-old son was suspended for 10 days for merely talking about guns on the bus ride home. Bruce Henkelman of Huntingtown says his son, a sixth grader at Northern Middle School in Owings, was talking with friends about the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre when the bus driver hauled him back to school to be questioned by the principal, Darrel Prioleau.

"The principal told me that with what happened at Sandy Hook if you say the word 'gun' in my school you are going to get suspended for 10 days," Henkelman said in an interview with WMAL.com.
So what did the boy say? According to his father, he neither threatened nor bullied anyone.
"He said, I wish I had a gun to protect everyone. He wanted to defeat the bad guys. That's the context of what he said," Henkelman said. "He wanted to be the hero."

The boy was questioned by the principal and a sheriff's deputy, who also wanted to search the family home without a warrant, Henkelman said. "He started asking me questions about if I have firearms, and [the deputy said] he's going to have to search my house. Search my house? I just wanted to know what happened."

Search the house? Not a chance in hell would that happen without a warrant if I were in that situation.

Maryland is a cesspool of liberal idiots of monumental proportions.

The more of these stories I read, the more I think being a moron is a requirement for working in a public school.

It was amusing when these stories about public ed about a decade or so ago. One of the first ones I remember was a little girl who was suspended because her tweety bird key chain was deemed a weapon.

Now it is just sad. This is what we've come to after 50 years of liberalism.
