UPDATE: 7th Graders at Virginia Beach, VA Suspended for Playing With Toy Guns On Private Property Are Officially Expelled
UNREAL. WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN …
From the story the other day where three 7th graders were suspended from their Virginia Beach, VA elementary school for playing with toy guns on private property, we have an update and you are not going to believe it. The children were suspended for possession, handling and use of a firearm, even though it was a toy.
Talk about you overreactions and lack of any common sense.
Here is the update from The Daily Caller, three morons on the disciplinary committee consisting from the Virginia Beach City Public Schools board made the absurd decision to unanimously expel the boys for the rest of the school year. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! The three brain surgeons from the Virginia Beach City Public Schools board were identified by local media as Dottie Holtz, Bobby Melatti and Carolyn Weems. Who on earth comes up with this decision in an attempt to ruin these children’s lives? Talk about the punishment not fitting the crime. Of course there was no crime, it was a friggin toy gun.
The Virginia Beach seventh graders who were suspended for playing with an airsoft toy gun on their own private property have now been expelled for an entire school year.
The decision was made unanimously by a disciplinary committee consisting of three members of the Virginia Beach City Public Schools board, according to local news.
Khalid Caraballo and Aidan Clark are banned from Larkspur Middle School until at least January, when a new hearing will be convened to determine whether the boys can come back to school early.
Here are the brain surgeons from the Virginia Beach City Public Schools board, otherwise known as the latest Ship of Fools.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … Virginia Beach 7th Grade Student Suspended from School for Firing Toy Gun Near Bus Stop on His Own Property
WTF, So now private property means nothing in the United States … ZERO TOLERANCE, MORE LIKE ZERO COMMON SENSE!!!
A 7th grade boy and two of his friends in Virgina Beach VA have been suspended from school and could be expelled for the rest of the year because of shooting a toy gun. But this story gets better, or worse as the case may be. The children were suspended for possession, handling and use of a firearm. However, the children were playing with the “TOY” guns on private property, not school grounds, not on a school bus or not at the bus stop. How on earth can a child be suspended from a school when playing on their own “PRIVATE” property? The school gas ZERO jurisdiction as to what one does on their own property. WHAT HAS THIS COUNTRY COME TO? Oh, and by the way, how can a child be suspended for handling and possession of a firearm, WHEN IT WAS A TOY!!!
The incident brings into play the notion of “Zero Tolerance”. However, I would dare say this incident has “ZERO” common sense. The day a school is allowed to suspend a child for playing with something legal on their own private property is the day we might as well burn the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence and declare our self a military state.
Watch the video of news story HERE.
A suspended seventh grade Virginia Beach student will find out soon if he is expelled for the rest of the year for shooting an airsoft gun.
Like thousands of others in Hampton Roads, Khalid Caraballo plays with airsoft guns. Caraballo and his friend Aidan were suspended because they shot two other friends who were with them while playing with the guns as they waited for the school bus.
The two seventh graders say they never went to the bus stop; they fired the airsoft guns while on Caraballo’s private property.
Aidan’s father, Tim Clark, told WAVY.com what happened next lacks commons sense. The children were suspended for possession, handling and use of a firearm.
Khalid’s mother, Solangel Caraballo, thinks it is ridiculous the Virginia Beach City Public School System suspended her 13-year-old son and Aidan because they were firing a spring-driven airsoft gun on the Caraballo’s posted private property. “My son is my private property. He does not become the school’s property until he goes to the bus stop, gets on the bus, and goes to school.”
The bus stop in question is 70 yards from the Caraballo’s front yard.
Why would anyone want to ruin a child’s life over something so stupid? Suspend a child and possible expulsion over this? Thank God I am not a kid in today’s society for my daily playing of Army with with friends back in the day would have put me at the top of the list on the Post Office wall of the “Most Wanted”.
Michigan State University Prof. William Penn Suspended from Teaching After Caught on Video Going on an Anti-Republican Tirade During Literature Class
More attempted liberal indoctrination at institutes of higher education …
After the below VIDEO going viral, Michigan State University was forced to suspend Prof. William Penn from teaching the rest of the semester. His rant against the GOP and his anti-Republican tirade was actually on the first day of class. Imagine what this class would have been after that? However, the even more amazing part of this was that this was not a political science class, it was a literature one. During the video, released by Campus Reform early this week, Penn expressing his political views saying that Republicans were “cheap” and “raped” the country. NICE.
Question: How often must this type of nonsense go on in colleges all across America but is never caught on video?
Michigan State University (MSU) administrators have suspended Prof. William Penn from teaching for the remainder of the semester, after he was caught on video going on an anti-Republican tirade on the very first day of his literature class.
Although Penn will not teach again this year, the school will continue to pay his salary, which is $146,510 according to MSU’s official website, a spokesman for the university told Campus Reform on Thursday evening.
In an email to students Thursday morning, Dean Karen Wurst of the College of Arts & Letters, cited his “inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive” comments.
“On Aug. 29, during your Literatures, Cultures, Identities course, Professor William Penn made comments he has acknowledged were inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive and may have negatively affected the learning environment,” she wrote. “Once MSU was made aware of the situation the Office of the Provost immediately began a review.”
“As a result, Penn’s duties have been reassigned, and he will not be teaching this semester,” she added. “A new instructor is being assigned to your course.”
So does this professor get fired for his actions? Not at all. As reported at The Daily Caller, The professor who called Republicans racists and rapists may have been relieved of his teaching duties for the rest of the semester, but he will still be paid in full by Michigan State University.
Campus Reform learned from an MSU spokesperson on Thursday that creative writing professor William Penn’s would still receive his annual salary of $146,510.
“His employment status has not changed; his teaching duties have been reassigned,” wrote Josiah Ryan, editor in chief of Campus Reform, in an email to The Daily Caller.
The Daily Caller is also reporting that the hate-filled professor also attached Christians and athletes. Wow, what a positive influence on the student body. And this guy had a teaching job how?
An eye-witness account from a student in the class revealed previously unreported details of Penn’s rant. According to sophomore Caroline Freeman, Penn also attacked Christians and athletes.
“He was talking about how Christians are dumb and don’t know what what they’re talking about and that they’re all blind followers,” said Freeman in a statement to MLive. “He was just tearing down a whole institution of belief, and it had nothing to do with class.”
He then turned on athletes.
“He said athletes were wasting their time trying to throw a ball in a hoop and how we glorify them for no reason,” she said. “He was calling people bad for playing football.”
Drunk University of Iowa Student Samantha Goudie Blows an Incredible #.341 Breathalyzer Test & Tweets to Tell About It
And I am sure her parents are so proud …
22 year old University of Iowa coed Samantha Goudie had quite the Saturday night. Goudie managed to get arrested for public intoxication at Kinnick Stadium after running out on to the field during her school’s 30-27 loss to Northern Illinois on Saturday night. Aren’t you supposed to do that when you win? But the amazing story, according to police records, is that when given a Breathalyzer, she blew an incredible .341. Just a reminder, the legal limit in Iowa is .08. Is that possible to be .341 and still standing? I guess so, because not only could she stand, she was able to Tweet, and tweet she did … Goudie said that she has gained thousands of followers on Twitter following her tweets. Because isn’t that what life is all about, the narcissism of social media.
See the rest of the Tweets at The Blaze, oh my.
A note to Miss Goudie, you might want to scrub your account before seeking a job in the not too distant future.
Kentucky Public School Teacher at McCracken County High School Encouraged Students to Step on American Flag As Part of Art Project
Are you friggin kidding me … Kentucky public school teacher encourages students step on the American flag and calls it art.
Art teacher Shand Stamper encouraged students to step on an American flag that had been placed on the floor as part of an art display, outraging parents and students. Really, it was called re-creation of “Dread” Scott Tyler’s 1989 installation titled “The Proper Way to Display an American Flag.” Sadly, I call it desecration of the flag! According to reports, as part of the art exhibit, students were encouraged to stand on the flag and write their reflections on how they felt standing on the flag. WTF!!! So let’s understand this, you can desecrate the American flag and call it art, but if a rodeo clown wears an Obama mask, they get fired, banned for life from the rodeo in Missouri and calls for hate crimes against you?
The display at McCracken County High School, was reportedly a re-creation of “Dread” Scott Tyler’s 1989 art display titled “The Proper Way to Display an American Flag,” according to Fox News Radio’s Todd Starnes.
Students were reportedly encouraged to stand on the flag and write reflections about how they felt standing on it, reported Starnes. According to WLEX-TV, the flag was stepped on and said visitors “had to step on the flag in order to participate in the project.”
The art teacher apologized, but I am sorry, how could anyone have such a lapse of judgement and not know any better. Sorry, not buying it. Let’s see the art teacher have the students step on Koran’s next and we shall see what happens. Oh that’s tight, he wants to keep his head.
Art teacher Shand Stamper has since apologized for the controversial art display – telling The Paducah Sun that it was not a specifically assigned project. The newspaper reported she sent a written letter of apology to school administrators.
“I love our flag and the nation it stands for. I love the freedom I enjoy because of our brave veterans. I feel sick and deeply sad that through my actions I have dishonored these men and women and also poorly represented you all,” she wrote in a letter obtained by the newspaper. “(To say) I am devastated by my actions bringing outrage and negativity on you is a gross understatement.”
Backlash against Michelle Obama’s healthy school lunch program …
The National School Lunch Program, that is supported by first lady Michelle Obama is a failure. Just one yard after it was implemented, many school districts are dropping out of the federal lunch program because the children are not just eating it. “They say it tastes like vomit”. As more and more children, either go hungry for the rest of the day, or bring in their own lunches and don’t buy the lunches, the program cannot afford to pay for itself. How comical, the kids won’t eat the food and lunch rooms are losing money. This administration can get nothing right.
Why does this sound like Obamacare?
Way to set an example to the kids by eating healthy Barack Obama
After just one year, some schools around the country are dropping out of the healthier new federal lunch program, complaining that so many students turned up their noses at meals packed with whole grains, fruits and vegetables that the cafeterias were losing money.
Federal officials say they don’t have exact numbers but have seen isolated reports of schools cutting ties with the $11 billion National School Lunch Program, which reimburses schools for meals served and gives them access to lower-priced food.
Districts that rejected the program say the reimbursement was not enough to offset losses from students who began avoiding the lunch line and bringing food from home or, in some cases, going hungry.
Look for this administration to put a penalty in place for those who do not buy the healthy lunches much like Obamacare. Didn’t Obama promise you can keep the lunch you had and it would cost less?
Who needs Vice President Joe Biden when we have Barack Obama to make gaffes …
Barack Obama was in Buffalo, NY yesterday on his campaign 2016 bus tour to discuss how the government is some how going to make school more affordable. During his campaign-like speech Obama screwed up the the mayor’s name. Details, details. Why should our imperial president have to know anyone’s name. The crowd actually had to corrected him. But we need to give Obama some slack, he has been under a lot of pressure with the foundering economy, record food stamp participation and the Middle East on fire. Maybe he needs a vacation?
Exit question: Why is Obama campaigning again? Did I miss something or didn’t he win a second and final term in office in 2012? The only thing that Obama is capable of doing is do a stump speech. Although it would appear he can’t even get people’s names right.
Could you imagine the reaction of the MSM had George Bush made the same gaffe?
Thanks Obamacare … UPS and UVA Ending Spousal Insurance Coverage … What Happened to Obama’s Promise that You Can Keep Your Insurance If You Want To
MISLEADER IN CHIEF: THANKS TO OBAMACARE, UPS AND UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA ENDING SPOUSAL INSURANCE COVERAGE …
Remember when President Barack Obama promised Americans that under Obamacare, you can keep your insurance coverage if you like it? Well guess what, HE LIED! As reported at the NY Times, United Parcel Service has told its employees that it will stop providing health care coverage to their spouses who can obtain coverage through their own employer. Thus, spouses who have a lesser coverage in their employment, but are provided heath care will no longer be able to be covered under the better UPS health care insurance plan. This is happening in many other companies and as it turns out Universities as well. UPS and UVA are dropping spousal coverage and citing increased health care costs. Wait, wasn’t Obamacare supposed to cut health care costs as well? I guess it all depends on what “nobody” is?
THE OBAMA LIES: “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, PERIOD! No one will take it away, no matter what.”
United Parcel Service has told its white-collar employees that it will stop providing health care coverage to their spouses who can obtain coverage through their own employers, joining an increasing number of companies that are restricting or eliminating spousal health benefits.
U.P.S., the world’s largest package delivery company, said its decision was prompted in part by “costs associated with” the federal health care law that is commonly called Obamacare. Several health care experts, however, said they believed the company was motivated by a desire to hold down health care costs, rather than because of cost increases under the law.
In a memo addressed to employees, U.P.S. said, “Limiting plan eligibility is one way to manage ongoing health care costs, now and into the future, so that we can continue to provide affordable coverage for our employees.”
The memo also estimated that about 33,000 spouses were covered under its insurance plan for white-collar employees and that “about 15,000 of these would have health care coverage available through their own employers.”
The University of Virginia will no longer provide insurance coverage to the working spouses of its employees, a move university officials hope will save “millions of dollars.”
Starting Jan. 1, employee spouses who have health insurance coverage under their employers cannot get coverage under UVa’s plan. If the spouse is covered under a plan defined by the Affordable Care Act as “minimum value” and “affordable,” he or she will no longer be eligible.
Cutting off working spouses with access to health insurance is part of the university’s plan to save money in the long-term, said UVa spokesman McGregor McCance.
CAN WE PLEASE REPEAL THIS LIE AND START OVER FROM SCRATCH!!!
Teacher Summer Michelle Hansen Allegedly Had Sex With Underage Students in Classroom, Offered Sex as a ‘Prize’ … Charged with 16 Sex Related Felonies
Hmm, California teacher offered sex as a prize for ding well, must be part of that new “common core” curriculum …
31 year old Summer Michelle Hansen, a special education teacher at a high school in southern California, has been charged with 16 sex related felonies as she is accused of having “unlawful sexual intercourse” and “unlawful oral copulation” with 5 under age boys. None of victims were her students; however, the boys “were all students at Centennial High. The crimes are reported to have taken place from May 2012 through May 2013. She faces up to 13 years in prison.
A special education teacher at a high school in southern California has been charged with 16 sex-related felony crimes, the Riverside County District’s Attorney’s Office said in a press release earlier this week.
Summer Michelle Hansen, 31, is accused of having “unlawful sexual intercourse” and “unlawful oral copulation” with five underage boys.
According to the District Attorney’s office, some of the crimes even took place on the Centennial High School campus.
“The crimes are alleged to have taken place from May 2012 through May 2013, and took place in her classroom, in a utility room at the school, in her vehicle while parked near one victim’s home, and at another victim’s home,” said the press release.
Now image how outraged everyone would be had the teacher been a male.
Illegal Immigrants, Oh Sorry Undocumented Students Demand In-State Tuition Change to Tuition Policy in North Carolina … Why Aren’t They Paying OUT-OF-COUNTRY TUITION!!!
Illegals push for in state tuition in North Carolina when they are not even US citizens. They are made to pay out-of-state tuition. HELL, they should be paying OUT-OF-COUNTRY TUITION!!!
Many illegal aliens were arrested during a protest Thursday at Wake Technical Community College demanding that they receive in-state tuition fees, rather than out of state tuition even though they are in the United States illegally. What a joke, if that is the case than student that is legally in the US should be allowed in-state tuition as well. If we are not going to be a country with borders, why have states with them as well?
At some point the United States has to figure out if we are a country of laws or not. And if borders actually mean something.
Dozens of undocumented students at Wake Technical Community College are pushing for changes to a policy that requires them to pay out-of-state tuition.
The students are forced to pay the out-of-state fees, which are nearly four times the cost of in-state tuition, even if they graduated from a North Carolina high school and have been living in the state for some time.
Five students were arrested at Thursday’s protest after repeated warnings to leave the campus. Wake Tech officials said the group didn’t file the proper paperwork to protest at the college. The five individuals, ranging in age from 17-27, are all charged with second-degree trespassing.
Meanwhile, undocumented students moved their demonstration to the highway demanding equal tuition rights.
“I think it’s discriminatory because they give us the opportunity already to be able to study here. We work really hard,” said undocumented student Jose Rico.
