The public schools are here to protect our children from terrorism on campus.
Here is a fine example. A Texas student was found threatening another student with a Hobbit magic ring. The principal put a stop to that as soon as it was reported to him. The story is here. The reporter wisely put “allegedly” in the story. With a crime like this, a lawsuit for false accusation is always a threat.
A Kermit parent said his fourth-grade student was suspended Friday for allegedly making a terroristic threat.
His father, Jason Steward, said the family had been to see “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” last weekend. His son brought a ring to his class at Kermit Elementary School and told another boy his magic ring could make the boy disappear.
Steward said the principal said threats to another child’s safety would not be tolerated – whether magical or not. Principal Roxanne Greer declined to comment on the matter.
“All student stuff is confidential,” Greer said. She referred a call from the Odessa American to Kermit ISD Superintendent Bill Boyd, who did not return a phone call.
Steward said he didn’t understand why his son was removed from school and why the district didn’t just send a letter home.
Letters? Parents of terrorists don’t need no stinking letters.
