When I was a kid there were 4 activities we participated in before and after my friends went to school EVERY DAY: 1) super soaker wars 2) air soft wars 3) laser tag and 4) football. The first 3 activities ranged over the entire neighborhood. Sometimes our parents played too. Homework was done at nighttime in our neighborhood. When the street lights came on everybody went home.


I wonder what this psycho would have thought if she'd have seen all 20 of us including adults running across the street, through yards and sometimes into the ditches?

We did paintball once. When my cousin and I shot up our AC unit, the neighbors shed, a stray dog and my moms cat, my dad put a stop to that pretty quick. I tried to explain to him that we were sighting in his red dot sight and were changing targets based on the size of the spread. He laughed and whipped us both anyway. His whippings were way scarier than anything any school could ever do.

What happens off school property is the parents problem. Never the schools. Discipline is my job. This kind of crap is why I don't send my kids to school.

I have to ask myself (not hatin') "how many people hit a crack rock, beat a spouse or child, or broke an ACTUAL LAW in their own yard that day?". Let's suspend all the wife beaters first.

Chasing eachother around, they came within 10' of the bus stop area. The local ordinance states it is unlawful to discharge a firearm within 150' of another building unless you are on private property. A little ambiguous.
The "neighbor" needs to be charged with something along the lines of "frivolous 911 call" and publicly identified so that people will know she is imbalanced and will view her silliness as silliness and not something serious to waste police or school administrator time on.

Exactly If the liberals really wanted to save lives they would be doing stuff like stopping drunk driving, making schools safer by adding armed security stuff like that

x2. This. Where's the ignition of a cartridge on an airsoft? That one misnomer could cost this kid plenty in years to come.

I dont think property is the right term but "responsibility". My recollection from when we were bussed way back when (a long, long time ago) as soon as we stepped out of our house we were the responsibility of the school and they would intervene when needed. Whether we were running in the streets, throwing rocks, picking on each other, etc...the school would get involved.

Progressives, don't you just love them???
First they will control the narrative and 'normalize' it, then they will 'legalize' it. That is how they work. Just watch what happens next. We talk about how 'crazy' it is but do nothing to stop it.

I'll tell you about zero tolerance policies. I have a zero tolerance policy myself. I have zero tolerance for stupid idiot liberals and their stupid idiot attempts at making the whole country into stupid idiots like themselves.

How about the AARP senior driving class?

Shouldn't they concentrate on younger drivers so they can see 50?
