The eleven year old Florida middle school honor roll student was suspended for six days for cutting a peach to share with a friend using a child-sized butter knife she had brought to school, which violated the county's weapon policy.
Moreover, the The Pembroke-Pines Police Department has evidently investigated the violation and has given its investigation to the state attorney's office.
This could lead prosecutors to file criminal charges against the girl.

I am just continually amazed at the stupidity of these policies and their enforcement of such "offences". Are they so concerned that this item could be used as a weapon that they pretend it's a big deal, comparable to a which hunt some four centuries ago?
I submit that a sharp tipped No. 2 Pencil is a more capable weapon which not only is capable of impaling a victim, but the lead tip might also poison the victim should it break off inside the wound.
None-the-less, this is the kind of mentality that cause states to write some of the most ridiculous law and policy that defies common sense and, in my opinion, logic.
Maybe Obama will pardon the girl and Hillary before leaving office.
