So they called the cops. They filled out a police report. They suspended him. And best of all:

A 10-year-old Hilton Head Island boy has been suspended from school for having something most students carry in their supply boxes: a pencil sharpener.
The problem was his sharpener had broken, but he decided to use it anyway.
The boy -- a fourth-grader described as a well-behaved and good student -- cried during the meeting with his mom, the deputy and the school's assistant principal.HA! They broke him! That has to be done first, before the rebuilding can be done, you know.
They couldn't just throw it away, offer him use of one of their pencil sharpeners, and send him home with a note to his mom saying he needed a new one?
District spokesman Randy Wall said school administrators are stuck in the precarious position between the district's zero tolerance policy against having weapons at school and common sense.Bullshit, Randy. There was no "common sense" applied here. There was nothing "precarious" about this, nothing "reasonable." If you maintain otherwise, you're just an ass-covering liar, an enabler of insidious evil, and a punk.
"We're always going to do something to make sure the child understands the seriousness of having something that could potentially harm another student, but we're going to be reasonable," he said.
"The school year has begun with zest!" exclaims Principal Jill McAden, who thought the hysteria also warranted a warning letter to inmate-in-training parents.
I did some checking on this school. It's "mission statement":
To ensure excellence in education for every learner that prepares each with the knowledge, skills and personal responsibility to succeed in a rapidly changing global society.Which of course, means traditional American values are vulgar and regressive. Global values are where it's at. Just add a dash of "tolerance and diversity" (for everything that is approved for collective indoctrination).
One other thing, and I really don't give a damn if this "appears" sexist: the entire school is run by women, and "liberal" ones at that, I think it's safe to assume. In 10 minutes I found only four guys--two phys-ed teachers and a third and fifth grade teacher. It's part of the feminizing boys agenda--make them cry in fear of police authority for having a 3/4" x 1/4" pencil sharpener blade. If that doesn't work, if they still insist on acting out their natures, we can always prescribe psychopharmaceuticals.
And then, when a percentage of them finally snap and go apeshit violent after years of brainwashing, repression and chemical intervention, and when some of those use guns, why we can use that to further justify defanging, declawing and tranquilizing everybody else to fit into the new global order of things. Because you know they'd like all schools to be run like this.
The school, of course, is but a symptom. Primary fault must rest with the parents who allow this to happen, and who then side with the "authorities" instead of defending their young--the true sign that an animal has been domesticated.
Just like with our greater society--the fault lies with every one of us who is not engaged in guarding their own freedom. Thinking someone is going to come along and save us, and do the hard work, take the hits and pay the price for us, is lazy, cowardly and contemptible.
No wonder our masters think they can get away with just about any new outrage their Marxist little minds can dream up.
