    But, Jeebus, the asinine thoughtlessness of some bureaucratic facists within it!  No freaking Tylenol!  A plastic knife packed in a kid's lunch brings a call to 911!  My own son got a major investigation for sexual battery called on him when he was in kindergarten because he tried to shoo away a wasp that had flown into a classmate's skirt.  In each of these cases there was one mindless bureaucrat who made the decision to press the panic button rather than just quietly correct a kid.

    I know whenever a person invokes the Holocaust they have lost an argument, but that kind of slavishness to policy and rule of law is exactly why you could recruit vicious camp guards from any community.  "Just following orders."
