As much as we support law and order, we’ve always believed that the one-size-fits-all approach of Zero Tolerance makes no sense. But now it’s being carried to really dumb extremes.
Consider, if you will, the case of Nathan Entingh, a ten-year-old fifth grader in the Columbus, Ohio, school system. He was suspended for making a gun shape with his fingers in science class, pointing them at a friend and saying, “Boom.”
Come on, folks! When are we going to stop being stupid about things like this?
