Do you remember a time when people in positions of authority made judgements based on common sense?

Your answer will likely depend on how old you are.



CLARKSVILLE, Tenn - A high school student in Montgomery County has been suspended after school officials found a knife inside his father's car.

David Duren-Sanner should be spending his time going through college and scholarship applications this time of year.

Instead, he's wondering if he'll even be able to graduate after what hundreds of people are calling an overreaction to a mistake.

On Thursday, Duren-Sanner, a senior at Northeast High School drove his father's car to school. During a random lockdown, his car was chosen to be searched.

Duren-Sanner gave permission because he said he had nothing to hide.

His father is a commercial fisherman on the West Coast and had apparently left a fishing knife in the car. Duren-Sanner's father said it might have been wedged between one of the seats.

And what exactly is a "commercial fisherman on the West Coast" doing bringing his fishing gear to Tennessee?

I get zero tolerance but that definitely seems like a situation that should be able to be worked out.

I can see the automatic suspension but you'd think they'd be a bit more willing to work with the family about dropping the weapons charges.

If his punishment is upheld, Duren-Sanner will not be able to attend prom, his JROTC ball or walk at graduation. His family said it's unclear whether he'll be able to graduate at all.
Duren said her grandson has a 3.0 grade point average, is on the honor roll and he has never even been sent to the principal's office She said scholarship applications have stopped since it is unclear what her grandson's future is.

poor kid!

What's a school doing inspecting vehicles? And since when are fish knives illegal?

Better hope you never need to eat in a restaurant. They will just toss half a cow and a head of lettuce on your plate.

You figure if he was fishing mud fish in hicksville it would be OK? Around here you find fish knives in all kinds of places.

Nannyism's on a rampage! RUN!
"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Bennie Franklin
"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual." - Tommy Jefferson
"Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty." - Plato
"It will be found an unjust and unwise jealousy to deprive a man of his natural liberty upon the supposition he may abuse it." - Georgie Washington
"Life without liberty is like a body without spirit." - Kal Gibran
Can't remember the one about sacrificing liberty for security.

Or where you are. Some people made ****ty judgments in the past and some do today. Thats human nature and just the way things go. This issue would not likely be handled the same way in every place.

More and more, zero tolerance equates to zero common sense. Sad, really.
