The Decline Of Western Civilization Illustrated…

…in three short sentences

“In the time it would have taken him to go get a teacher, could that kid’s throat have been slit?” O’Donnell recalled asking the vice principal. “She said yes, but that’s beside the point. That we ‘don’t condone heroics in this school.'”

I’m guessing it wasn’t “beside the point” to the kid who was protected by this young man’s actions.

    The principal “insisted Briar was not disciplined”. But he was “reprimanded” and sent home. What do they consider “disciplining” – getting out the rack?

  2. JeffS says:

    That is weapons grade stupidity enhanced by political correctness. The lad did right. The principal is an unmitigated idiot.

    And, alas, this is indeed a sign of the decline of our civilization.

    No word on what happened to the kid with the shiv. Was he also “reprimanded and sent home”, or did they expel his thug ass?

    JeffS, ‘weapons grade stupidity’ and ‘political correctness’ – you can’t have one without the other.

  5. Skyler says:

    We are doomed.

  6. Kathy Kinsley says:

    No, not doomed, but our heroes too often die young. And that young man was a hero.

  7. Kathy Kinsley says:

    The fact that he existed at all is why I say we are not doomed.

  8. Kate P says:

    Education is doomed but there’s a chance for humanity if parents stand up to this inanity.

    Despite all their best efforts to render us into Eloi, there are still heroes born among us. Good on ya, kiddo.
