Your Tax Dollars going to Waste at School. I guess that Kid should have sat Back and let that other Kid possibly shoot and kill other Students on that Bus. I am not EDP, but I agree with what EDP is saying.

Most likely if the kid had shot the other guy, he would have started firing at the other kids around him and we would have had yet another school shooting on our hands. They should give the kid a medal, not a pink slip (suspension).

At moments like this, I'm happy to live in a far away location. :/

There's way too much violence at schools in the US, but yeah, that kid should definitely have been awarded instead of suspended.

Maybe he would have gotten a Medal if he just let the kid kill kids on the School bus. Maybe the Teachers at the School are huge Anti-Gun Supporters and really wanted more Murder and blood shed to fight against Gun-Rights.

I agree with what the guy in the video said, this kid did everything right, and he got suspended for it, if anything he should have been fucking awarded.

However, it must be noted that during the initial investigation conducted by the administration of Cypress Lake High School the students involved refused to cooperate with school authorities regarding the events that occurred. As a result, appropriate disciplinary actions were taken at that time.

So not "suspended for saving a life" then. Suspended, "But he saved a life!!!".

Because they refused to cooperate with the investigation apparently, which makes sense.

At my school, you can get suspended for fighting.

Not instigating a fight, just fighting.

That means if someone else started a fight with you, you would get punished if you fought back in self-defense.

The stupidity that occurs in the name of anti-violence.

I think he should be praised for his actions, condemning him for that reason is just wrong and the people in charge of that school should know better.

If the individual didn't disarm the gunman then the story will be far more different and farm more grimmer if such was allowed to take place.

I read that too, but saw no elaboration on this. Instead they stated:

"... he was suspended for being part of an 'incident' where a weapon was present and given an 'emergency suspension.'"

So, no, he was not suspended for being uncooperative in the investigation. This would not be grounds for suspension regardless due to the separation of the school and law enforcement (unless by "investigation" they meant a questioning by the school - I saw no evidence of this, nor of the student's supposed insubordination in the article).

The school reflexively suspended the individual due to protocol put in place in order to prevent lawsuits. If you ask me, it is a show of cowardice on the part of the administration and of the juvenile attitude in society.

In my school if you don't fight back after being attacked you'll get suspended too. This is nothing new in the united states.

Get in a "fight" even though it's one sided and it's instant suspension.

Florida's always had horrible self-defense laws. I remember a story of this kid that was slightly getting bullied, and so he stabbed the bully about 10 times, killing him. The kid got away with it.

Florida proves time and time again to be full of morons.

It goes on your records for good, and when you fill out college applications they almost always ask if you have ever been suspended. Saying no could potentially destroy your chances of getting accepted if they find out you're lying, as they can call up your high school any time to confirm. Saying yes obviously hurts your chances as well.

The lack of elaboration in any justification of the suspension is baffling.


Even the most righteous, logically sound individuals are subject to poor reasoning skills and deluded mindsets.
