Jimmy Meadows is an Idiot

So, an eight-grader accidentally brings a knife to school. A knife that he used legitimately the day before. And then said student is responsible and immediately turns in the knife when he enters the school. So, what does he get for his laudable actions?

A ten day suspension, and possible expulsion.

So, the next time someone accidentally brings a weapon to school, are they going to report it now? Of course not.

And what other message does this send? When you make a mistake, by all means, do not do the right thing, or you'll get punished!

After Texas going after drunks in bars and now New Jersey going after kids who follow the rules, it seems this misguided attempt at enforcing laws is a national thing.

Given that I lived very close to Warren Township when I lived in Jersey, this makes me glad I went to private school.

Old news I know, but this happened in Indianapolis, not Jersey.
