another reason why to tell children not to play with scissors

A 10-year-old fourth-grade girl at Holme Elementary School in the Far Northeast was pulled out of class, handcuffed, and taken to the local police station in the back of a police wagon earlier this week after a pair of 8-inch scissors were found in her book bag, according to authorities and her angry mother.

School district and police officials said yesterday that they were following state law and procedures in dealing with students who have weapons on school property. They say that those rules demand police be called and that procedures call for handcuffing suspects regardless of age or crime.

Porsche Brown's mother, Rose Jackson, was outraged

Rose Jackson, welcome to the school choice movement.

For those of you who don't know about it, there's a website that has pre-registered usernames and passwords for "registration required" sites....just go to http://www.bugmenot.com and type in the website....check it out and tell all of your friends!!!!

It worked for Philly.com on the first try (sometimes they have more than one stored login/password)!
