This is complete and utter bullshit
An elementary student in Marion County was arrested Thursday after school officials found her cutting food during lunch with a knife that she brought from home, police said.
The 10-year-old girl, a student at Sunrise Elementary School in Ocala, was charged possession of a weapon on school property, which is a felony.
According to authorities, school employees spotted the girl cutting her food while she was eating lunch and took the steak knife from her.
The girl told sheriff's deputies that she had brought the knife to school on more than one occasion in the past.
Students told officials that the girl did not threaten anyone with the knife.
The girl was arrested and transported to the Juvenile Assessment Center.

And therein lies the problem with "zero tolerance" policies...The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

That's messed up. I wouldn't have made that arrest, and it surprises me that anyone did...

Coloradocop, the department may have a no discretion policy when the school is making the complaint. I know we have something similar. It is up to the DA to refuse the charge. Fucking unbelievable."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

Maybe, I guess we just have a bit more discretion here. Either way, I'd sure hope that the DA would toss this one!
I searched for this and read the whole article. It does sort of sound like each side is trying to blame the other... The school claims they were following policy and didn't want the girl arrested... And the sheriff's office claims that they were bound by policy after the school called. Perhaps both sides of this issue need to revisit their policy decisions?

Here in Florida where that happened, there is no choice. They took that choice away from us in law enforcement and gave it to the dumbasses at the schools to decide if criminal charges will be applied. Not sure about Marion County, but down here where I work, juveniles get transported to our jail and the juvenile assessment center is called. They determine if that juvenile has enough points in their system to either be placed into their facility or released to their parents after they are booked. If they are taken to their facility, it means that they usually have one or more felonies on their record or it was an act of domestic violence.Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American G.I.

We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

I think someone should have made a judgment call on this one.

Unreal, it's not a crime to have a knife for the purpose of cutting your own food. I guess someone forget common sense here!It's a cop thing, you wouldn't understand.

That is absolutely ridiculous. She was using it for its intended use and it said that she was not threatening anyone. Having her arrested and making charges against her seem to be more detrimental than anything. Now, she could face more than just charges, but ridicule, etc at school by her peers. To me, it seems more threatening to have done what they did rather than just take it away and tell her not to do it again. I do not want to defend the school officials in anyway, but if they were completely 100% bound by policy then there may not have been another way and as others in this thread have stated maybe a policy change is in order. If they are not bound, then... poor judgement on their part. Terrible.Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.

In the immortal words from "The Life Of Riley": "What a revolting development this is!"
Who'd a thunk the libs would have created such a dilemma when they pushed for all those zero tolerance laws affecting our youth?Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
