The stupidity of zero tolerance rules claims yet another victim, this time in Massachusetts:
A 6-year-old kindergartner sparked an uproar at his Massachusetts school when he was spotted brandishing a tiny plastic Lego gun on the school bus last week.
Mieke Crane, the child’s mother, insists that officials at Old Mill Pond Elementary School in Palmer overreacted when another student saw the toy, which is slightly bigger than a quarter, and alerted the driver Friday.
‘She [driver] said he caused quite a disturbance on the bus and that the children were traumatized,’ Crane told the local station WGGB.
So, if I understand this correctly, Lego is not only producing toys that will traumatize children, but stores across the country are selling these monstrosities!?
You know what this is, right?
Straight up indoctrination. Teach the children to be terrified of guns. Teach the children to watch their friends. Teach them to alert authorities if someone violates a rule, even if it’s with a toy gun.
Reminds me of something:
Of course, we don’t have telescreens…yet. But the children are coming along nicely, aren’t they?
