Did you read the story? He showed it to another kid on his way home. It was the next day that police approached him and found it in his backpack. It
is likely the first kid reported it to his parents because the police knew to check him out the next day.
However, it is also likely, he was showing it off, which is wrong, I agree.
If you think it's wrong, why did you mention the school system "insanity"? The school was right on doing what they did. They checked out the kid.
He was released, by the way.
First, yes, I read the story, thank you very much.
Second, the "insanity" is that they should have simply asked the kid to show them. Then, seeing it was fake (and included the legal ORANGE TIP), got
the parents involved in a sit-down discussion on the topic with the kid. Getting the POLICE involved, really, that is insanity IMO. Sorry you think
that educators shouldn't be educated and defer all these minor issues to the police department.
