High Schooler Arrested And Suspended For Having Fishing Supplies In His Car

Cody Chitwood apparently loves fishing. He says he fishes once a week, sometimes twice a week. What he probably didn’t think about, however, is that his fishing supplies were considered weapons, and were therefore not allowed inside his school’s “safety zone.” Weapons like knives used to scale and gut fish. Officials at Lassiter High School in Cobb County, Georgia have police perform drug searches in the parking lot once or twice a year using drug-sniffing dogs. When they came to Chitwood’s Read more […]

Boy Suspended For Having Tiny Gun Key Chain

At an arcade, 12-year-old Joseph Lyssikatos won a small gun key chain not much bigger than a quarter, and he put it in his backpack. At his Rhode Island school, the toy apparently fell out of his bag, and another student picked it up and showed it to others. A teacher got wind of the incident and confiscated the toy weapon. School officials were able to run the serial number on the gun and trace the gun back to Joseph, who ended up getting suspended for three days. (OK, the part about the serial Read more […]

Teen Jailed for “Terrorism” Speech While Others Tweet Threats Freely

Justin Carter definitely wishes he could take back the comment he made on Facebook while arguing with someone about some video game. But he can’t, especially since he’s been in jail since March.

New Jersey Trains Shut Down Over “Assault” Umbrella

A New Jersey resident called the police when he (or she) saw a man wielding an “assault weapon” while boarding a light rail train:  “Someone had reported to police that a man wearing black pants, a white dress shirt, a cast on his arm, [and] ‘armed with a long barrel assault weapon’ had gotten on the train.”  As a result, several light rail trains were shut down while police perused the surveillance footage for the man who was probably planning a mass transit mass shooting with his Read more […]

Teacher Suspended For Showing Students Common Household Tools

Students aren’t the only ones being suspended for drawing, making hand gestures, chewing food in the shape of or thinking about guns or things that could be used as weapons. It’s all about purging their still-developing minds of guns; brainwashing them to think that guns and other self-defense tools are inherently evil. But this brainwashing campaign evidently applies to teachers as well. As part of a curriculum-required “tool discussion” at a Chicago elementary school, 2nd grade teacher Read more […]

Two First-Graders Suspended For Playing Cops & Robbers

Just a couple weeks ago, a 6-year-old student was suspended for pretending to “shoot” another student with his hand and saying, “Pow!” He was playing of course, but the school officials were alarmed by the boy’s behavior and suspended him. In the assistant principal’s letter to the student’s parents, she wrote that their son “threatened to shoot another student.” After the parents secured a lawyer, they appealed the decision of the school, and the school overturned the student’s Read more […]

Alien Invasion: The “Friendly” Takeover Of Our Police

The United States has a constitution in which a Federal Government is granted powers that are distinct from the power of the states that make up the Union. It is easy to think that as long as those distinctions are legally intact, that Federalism will continue to work at the Federal, State, and local level. Don’t be naïve. Those legal distinctions mean nothing of the Federal Government has the power to offer funding that is unavailable through other sources. Since the Federal Government Read more […]
