    "let it slide"? I don't see where anyone says the student shouldn't be disciplined, but expulsion from school and being tried as an adult is way off the charts overreaction. There is a huge amount of territory between do nothing and felony charges considerably less punishment seems appropriate.
    So I ask you, why do you want to continue a policy that mindlessly chews up the rest of a young persons life for a single foolish act? Is there no responsibility on the part of the school to help this student?

    This makes about as much sense as Mike Huckabee on mescaline. - Prodigal 2-6-2008
