One of your kids might do something equally dumb and will most likely get the same fate as her due to this country becoming a zero tolerance, police state.
But if I were a parent, I would certainly pull my child out of that school district and explain that I fear my child's life can easily be ruined by a little mistake. And teens often make little mistakes.
Some teens make little mistakes. Other teens bring homemade bombs to school. Tiny as it may have been, I'm fine with a zero tolerance policy for detonating homemade bombs at school. Good luck finding a school with a more liberal policy on students detonating bombs.
