Just plain stupid

This sort of pants-wetting hysterics is just rediculous.

A 10-year-old Florida girl faces felony weapons charges after bringing a small steak knife to school to cut up her lunch, according to a report on WFTV.com.

School officials say the Ocala 5th grader had brought a piece of steak for her lunch, and had brought a steak knife. According to the report, a couple of teachers took the utensil and called authorities, who arrested the girl and took her to the county’s juvenile assessment center.

Arrested? For a frigging STEAK knife? That she was using to cut STEAK with?

"She did not use it inappropriately. She did not threaten anyone with it. She didn't pull it out and brandish it. Nothing of that nature," explained Marion County School Spokesman Kevin Christian, who added that it made no difference what the knife was being used for, they had no choice but to call police.

Translation: EEEEK! EEEEEEK! IT'S A SHARP POKEY THING! RUN AWAY! EEEEEEEEK! And the pussification of America continues.....

You can chalk this up as yet another reason why public schools are failing shitholes, cesspools of mediocrity at best, and festering pits of despair all too often. Maybe if they would expell the bullies, the drug pushers and the thugs, they wouldn't have to worry about a ten year old girl using a knife TO CUT A STEAK.
