Middle School Girl Suspended Over Butter Knife 290313knife

A thirteen year old girl was suspended from a Boston school this week for bringing a butter knife with her to cut up a pear for lunch, in the latest crackdown on kids taking anything vaguely resembling a weapon to school with them.

As reported by Fox Boston, Morgan LaPlaume, a Wamsutta Middle School student, was suspended for a day over the incident. The girl needed the knife to cut up the fruit because she has braces and cannot eat the fruit whole.

Of course, in the new America that fact is irrelevant because she could be an extremist.

“As we were walking to his office I asked him and he said you are not allowed to have knives in school and I said I was using it to cut my pear, I wasn’t harming any other student and he said I know but it’s the policy,” Morgan told reporters.

At time of writing embedding isn’t working on this video report. See WXFT’s report on the story here.

According to the report, the school’s vice principal was strolling past Morgan during lunch, witnessed the blunt knife, and ordered her to accompany him to his office, where he informed her she would be suspended.

The principal of the school told reporters that the vice principal was “following the rules set forth in the handbook”.

The girl’s parents told reporters that they feel the incident was unnecessary and that the “rules” should not be so broad.

“It’s a butter knife, she has braces, there was no intent at all there,” the girl’s mother Melissa LaPlaume said, adding that she is scheduled to meet with a guidance counselor on Monday.

It is now a daily occurrence for school officials somewhere in America to freak out and discipline students, and sometimes even call the police, over anything vaguely resembling a weapon.

In this case how is a blunt butter knife any more dangerous than a sharp pencil or a pen?
