surprised to see some of the people that stood up for him; some of them I never would've thought would do it.
We are doing the best that we can with the limited resources we have. I wish we could get someone out of Austin, but it's not as easy as it sounds.
Call the ACLU. This kind of case is like solid gold for them.
It's ironic how much things have changed. Back in my high school days the kids with "anger issues", who really WERE violent to the point of
randomly attacking people like rabid dogs, were a part of the general school population. And, they were PROTECTED by administrators!!
I remember once in my Senior year, this punk was bothering my girlfriend at the time, and also constantly trying to pick fights with me. I asked the
assistant principal what would happen if he attacked me outright and I defended myself.
His answer stunned me.
He said I would go to jail (!!) and this punk would get maybe a day's detention (like he cared anyway).
Because he had "anger issues".
I told the asst. principal in no uncertain terms what BS that was.
And, he agreed, saying "You better believe it's BS!!"
But he said his hands were tied, that because there was no money in the budget to put these kids in Circuit Breaker schools they had to come to
regular school and the School Board refused to punish them because in their opinion "the kids needed help, not punishment".
Now kids get suspended for a drawing of a stick figure with a weapon, and go to jail over unfounded rumors. And I'll bet the A-hole "jocks" still
beat kids up and stuff them in lockers too.
Man, I'm getting sick of this country. It's like we've all gone bat-guano crazy......
