Fake news...here's the relevant sentence..."After several students made comments along those lines, another student said something the sheriff’s office said could have sounded like a threat out of context."
So it was obviously a disturbing comment that generated the search, not the symbol. But have at it in the ol' echo chamber, eh?
School bad...gun good!

two solutions
hire a lawyer and sue the school distract for swatting

hire a lawyer and sue the police department for violating your civil rights because they would have had to lie to a judge to get warrant.

You come over as a privileged, feminist hardcore liberal that has lost touch with reality. 

I would think you would wear that as a badge of courage.
Maybe you are swinging to the right.


I did not say that. They call it a quote feature for a reason.

I was quoting someone else.

Never said that you said it. I wasn't quoting external sources, but was replying to your post.

The future of our country right here, God help us all. If they're not eating tide pods it's stuff like this , shows their teachers aren't teaching and they aren't learning anymore.

Really? You guys can't figure out why stuff like this is happening? People are scared and on edge.

Kids are scared to go to school. Parents are scared for their kids. Teachers are scared. The police are scared due to the backlash of them not doing enough to stop the guy from shooting up the high school.

The event in the OP was a week after the shooting. We don't know what the particular student said because it wasn't included in the article, but we do know that people are scared and on edge right now. You can't joke around about this in a school anymore than you can joke about blowing up a plane when you are in an airport.

Not an excuse. A identifiable legit danger is legit. Being a whimpering wuss-ass in the corner over the tiniest thing is no excuse to mollycoddle them further, snap out of it.

This statement makes me sad, I assure you Kaylaluv there is nothing "fun" about needing to get pissed before reality sets in, it sucks actually. I'm sure over the years we have been on the same side of several discussions on ATS, and I understand where you're coming from.

It's a "process" that requires "educated, privileged ,liberals" to re-think the World around them, and unfortunately some BAD sh#t needs to happen to most people for them to re-think and "rock" the world they feel safe in. At this point I think it makes sense for ALL of us to reflect, learn, read and take back the narrative of Reality and Common Sense that we are NOT getting from entertainment MSM...lol..or if we are it's through creepy movies, showing in plain sight, what they believe is "Fair" warning of the evil plans intended for the masses.


Divide and Conquer is a very effective tool of war, let's rise above it here on ATS.

No wonder US math scores are in the toilet. Students don't even recognize mathematical symbols.

Pathetic. Beyond pathetic.

Welcome to the progressive education world of common core and math is racist or white oppressive.

In spite of that declaration, the student is facing expulsion. In the wake of the shooting in Florida the school board set a new policy. According to KATC, "Any student accused of talking about guns or school shootings will be investigated by three entities: the school board, the sheriff's department, and the district attorney's office."


I get the zero tolerance part of it, as extreme as it sounds, but... lemme see here... How can one discuss the Civil or Revolutionary or either World War without any sort of mentions of weapons? How can one discuss the economics of those times seeing as how manufacturing of weapons in factories was a defining thing. Women going to work in factories making bombs and ammo was seen as a huge step up for them in terms of patriotism, etc.

Sorry, but seriously? What are we teaching children? That to even utter the word gun in ANY context constitutes a threat and an act that can literally make your life difficult because you'd be expelled from school and may not be allowed back into ANY school at all because of it?

People are always quick to defend kids doing stupid things "because kids, and kids are immature and don't understand" and talk about how any proposed punishment is too extreme and life changing, but when it comes to something like this, those same people defending kids who commit "adult" crimes are all for extreme reactions because a kid said something looked like a gun. It's so convoluted and insane, I can't even grasp it at the moment.

There is nothing at all in the statements from the police/school that say the kid made a threat and every indication that what was said was at face value "the symbol looks like a gun." What's wrong with the teacher stepping up and replying, "Yes, it does, but that's not an appropriate comment." They couldn't point out the rules that mentioning guns was forbidden and move on with the lesson? Send the kid after class or school to the office and allow the principle to explain why it's not allowed and inform the parents of the same?

The fact that an investigation upheld that there was NO threat from this kid at all and it was a simple comment, but they're proceeding on with expelling the kid anyway? That is utter BS. I'm a parent. I get the worry and fear, but I still maintain that treating this kid like a criminal is a scary thing to do. You've just hamstrung teaching of history. You've just created a situation in which learning about world events could get you banished from school. Now you can no longer discuss current events at school unless they're a sanitized version, or you conveniently ignore any event that involves a gun.

What's next? Can't teach about Nagasaki or Pearl Harbor because that would require using the word "bomb or explosive?" (Keeping in mind that the kids who shot up Columbine apparently had homemade explosives in their dufflebags.)

It's more than law enforcement, it's the entire system. Driven by superstition, fear and ignorance.

Good intentions don't forgive criminal actions.

If you scare them enough, then the next generation will be thoroughly indoctrinated with a fear and loathing of firearms and scream, cry and beg to have the government remove them.

If not, we're approaching the nadir of utter stupidity, and, truth to tell, heights of comedy.

That would have made math classes so much more enjoyable--that, and not having a football coach pretending to be a math teacher...

Actually, I still think you might be confused. Who said anything about external source quoting? You also realize that what I quoted was directed at another member by another member...correct?

As for your question, it was already answered. Are you not reading what is posted, or paying much attention at all for that matter?

OK. That sounds like a more complex motivation than just fear of a rare chance of getting shot at a school.

Fair enough.

I will continue to search for an answer. Thanks.
