A kindergartner was suspended for "intent" -- finding a knife and thinking about taking it to school, even though he decided not to.
The kindergartner briefly put the knife in his backpack, but thought better of it and put it down.
"It was a bad idea, bringing the knife. It could hurt somebody," said Josh.
The small knife remained in the park, well off of school grounds.
But when the other boys started talking about it at Harmon Elementary, Josh was called into the principal's office, and ultimately suspended. He was sent home on Thursday.

Thought-crime... It is ruining our younglings.
It is good that they caught this one before he started thinking about worse things; like sporks.

If that were my son. I would of congratulated him for not taking it to school.
I remember I brought Megatron to school in the mid-80's. he looked like a gun when transformed. I was playing with it, and the principal calmly told me why I couldnt bring it to school and let me put it in my locker.

Not surprised one bit.
I found out in 1992 that they used electronic mind control in schools in uk. I did nothing wrong, but they absolutely destroyed my life for no reason.
Everyone thinks bad things. Amazing that the criminals in gov and police are killing for there friends, while they are the trash.
My life has proven minority report techs do not work, there is no such thing as precrime.

Wow... I am so glad I grew up in a much more relaxed era. I remember walking around in school with a toy rifle in the 80's as part of my costume for the revolutionary war celebration.
