razorThis one isn’t directly gun related, but it’s yet another story that highlights the anti-weapon hysteria that is sweeping our public schools.

In this case, a 6th grade girl, Adrionna Harris, has been suspended because she took a razor blade away from another student was using it to cut himself and threw it away. The girl then told school officials what happened.

Harris was then suspended. Interestingly, Harris was only suspended because she related what happened to a teacher. According to local media reports,

Last Thursday at Bayside Middle School, sixth grader Adrionna Harris came to the aide of a classmate who was cutting his arm. She faces expulsion for taking a razor from the student, throwing it away and convincing him what he was doing wasn’t right. She thought she was doing the right thing, so on Friday she told the school administration what happened. The way school officials responded led to this question: was the school’s zero tolerance policy taken too far?

Instead of getting praise from the school administration, Adrionna got a 10 day suspension with recommendation for expulsion. The interesting thing — the only reason Adrionna got suspended was because she admitted what happened. The alleged weapon was thrown away, and it was her word alone that led to her suspension.

“I was shocked and surprised. I was very shocked that a student would get suspended for saving another child,” said Rachael Harris, Adrionna’s mother. “The school system over-reached absolutely.”

This is just the latest example of the zero tolerance hysteria which has swept our nation’s schools.
