Are authorities overreacting to a kid who; posted an inappropriate video holding a BB gun while laughing and saying 'don't come to school." (according to the Principal)
Sounds like a joke to me. I know schools are trying to be cautious but at the same time, I can see how a middle school kid might mock the national meltdown over schools and guns. Remember, you have adults suspending kids for; eating a sandwich making it look like a gun or kids suspended for making finger guns or dragging a kid down to the office to be interrogated by some goons because he went to a shooting range with his father.
Did the Principal try to contact the kid or his family and investigate or did he just pull the ripcord and contact the Police? Yes, the Principal could be in a tight spot with little choice here.
I'll be looking for answers on Tuesdays show.
