Zero tolerance has gone too far.

Zero tolerance has gone way too far, when a 9 year old Georgia boy with autism writes “bone thrat” on the wall and is charged by police with making a felony terrorist threat. This actually happened a few days ago:

I’m getting to the point of having zero tolerance for zero tolerance. Between this and “political correctness,” it seems people have no right to free speech anymore. Whatever happened to the first amendment?

Silencing is a major way narcissists gain control, and Americans are living in an increasingly narcissistic society. All this zero tolerance/political correctness BS is The Narcissistic Powers That Be showing its paranoia and exercising control over the rest of us peons.

  1. Oh, amen! It is getting really weird out there. We’ve had several similar incidents at our school. To tell you the truth, I am far more scared of the tanks, bomb sniffing dogs, and swat teams than I am of any kid.

    • I am too. I have done nothing wrong and yet I have panic attacks whenever I see a police car behind me on the road. They’re never around when you need them though.

      I think some states are worse than others though. Georgia is is one of the harsher states.

  2. I absolutely despise “political correctness.” It seems that people have replaced common sense and intelligence with trying to make a statement.

  3. As a rule I generally try to avoid discussing anything of a political or hot-button nature on the internet. As the wife of a police officer, though, I am saddened and dismayed to read your comment above regarding law enforcement. I do not dispute that the sheriff was perhaps overzealous in this situation, and if that is the case the courts will respond accordingly. However, the police do not create the policies. They enforce them as their job dictates them to do. The policy changes need to come from the school boards and the legislatures.

    • Oh, I know the police have no real power and are just enforcing the law. It’s not really law enforcement that’s to blame, it’s the society that creates these ridiculous policies that the police then are obliged to enforce.

    • I have no idea. There doesn’t seem to be much of that anymore, does there? ITA about whole lives being ruined because of zero tolerance? Who does it benefit really?

  4. I think it’s ridiculous what is happening. One boy was suspended for biting his Pop Tart into a shape of a gun, another kid was suspended for pointing his finger out pretending it’s a gun, an autistic boy was arrested for kicking over a trash can, and I remember being suspended for saying I wish I could slap my art teacher because I felt she had lied to me about that she will get to me but she never did because class had ended so I got very upset about it. I think its good we have tried to create violent free zones and have zero tolerance policies but it seems to be backfiring.

    • I agree completely. Some of the things you hear are unbelievable. When I was a kid, there was so much more freedom. I feel sorry for kids today.
