Texas Public School Penalizes Honest Student for Doing the Right Thing

I might be all out of words. How we vote no longer matters. The majority of Americans don’t want Obamacare, and do want the IRS abuse investigated. Obamacare stays, IRS abuse won’t be resolved — majority does not rule. Many of our public schools are run by people who are incapable of thinking. So are many of our police departments. When you mix unthinking idiots in education with unthinking Keystone cops, you get powerful idiots doing idiotic things to our children.

A Texas family is appealing their son’s suspension after he brought a can of beer to school.

Christi Seale said her 17-year-old son Chaz was running late Monday and accidentally grabbed a beer instead of a soda to pack in his lunch.

When Chaz realized his mistake, Seale said he immediately gave it to a teacher at Livingston High School, about 90 minutes north of Houston.

But the school didn’t buy the story. The teacher called the principal and Chaz was suspended for three days. He will also have to attend an alternative school for two months.

“I think it’s not black and white. There has to be a gray area. You can’t punish a kid for doing the right thing. It’s the same punishment you would give a kids that you catch doing the wrong thing,” Seale said.

Livingston ISD is standing by the teacher and the principal, because of course. No one is allowed to think, this is a public school!

The story gets even worse. The campus cops got involved. A cop committed the crime of thinking.

So the teacher called the principal’s office, and the principal referred Seale to campus police. Police swiftly issued him a citation for being a minor in possession of alcohol.

But the officer revoked the citation after learning of the circumstances of the incident, tearing up the slip in front of Seale.

Undeterred, the school district suspended Seale for three days. The police officer reportedly got into trouble with his superiors for refusing to pursue the first citation.

Common denominator: These are all government employees.

If our big government were smart, that would be one thing. I still wouldn’t support it, but at least it would defensible. Our big government is stupid, which makes it an active threat.
