(Steve Watson, infowars.com) It is now a daily occurrence for school officials somewhere in America to freak out, call the police, and discipline students over anything vaguely resembling a gun. On Monday it was the turn of Malden High School in Massachusetts.
A teacher at the school reportedly glimpsed sight of a “gun”, and alerted police who rushed to the scene only to discover a neon water pistol.
“A teacher reported hearing a clicking motion, and thought a student may have had a gun,” Superintendent David DeRuosi told reporters.
After school was dismissed, police located the harmless toy and filed a report, according to Malden Police Lt. Det. Marc Gatcomb.
“…no persons were threatened that we know of,” Gatcomb wrote in an email.
Any rational person may have concluded that that was the end of the matter. Not in America 2.0, however.
School officials are now on the hunt for the culprit who brought the water pistol on to school grounds.
“You can’t take any of that stuff lightly today,” Superintendent DeRuosi said, adding that state of the art surveillance cameras that were recently installed as part of the school’s renovation, will help track down the student responsible, and allow officials to hold him or her responsible for such a heinous action.
Once apprehended, the student will face internal disciplinary action for the incident, school officials said.
So I have to ask, are these simple "knee-jerk" reactions, or, do the schools have justification for such stringent investigations and actions?
