Food Fight? You're Under Arrest!

A spontaneous lunchtime food fight broke out at a Chicago middle school, and by the time the last bell rang, 25 students aged 11 to 15 were arrested for reckless conduct.  Parents told the local news they are furious.
“My children have to appear in court,” Erica Russell, the mother of two eighth-grade girls who spent eight hours in jail, said Tuesday. “They were handcuffed, slammed in a wagon, had their mug shots taken and treated like real criminals.”

“They’re all scared,” Ms. Russell said of the two dozen arrested students. “You never know how children will be impacted by that. I was all for some other kind of punishment, but not jail. Who hasn’t had a food fight?”

I home school my child and if she started throwing food during lunch, she would have a blistered her rear end. Unfortunately schools can't do that these days.

Kids should be at school to learn not to screw off.

Sounds like it's just getting them prepped for what to expect for treatment of the people by our government/authority. No longer for the people, by the people.

Don't forget that soon christmas and halloween will be forbidden, as well as flying the American flag.

Think I'm over reacting? These things are already starting around our country... How can we let these things happen to our children.
