Student suspended for social media post

Recommended Posts

When I first saw this my knee jerk response was "crap another fear mongering story" but actually the story itself has actual information about Airsoft guns including the correct name of the gun and technical info that explains that it's a toy! The school is definitely being stupid though, especially when the kid did nothing wrong and he can't control what people comment on a picture

I think it was his own reply that caused the issue, as I read it he agreed with the sentiment of shooting certain teachers

that is how i read it as well, so no excuse from him really

 

'where a fellow student appeared to be encouraging the boy to bring the airsoft gun to school.

“Now bring it to school and let’s smash the place up,” they wrote, which was met with a reply from the boy who posted the photo, singling out two specific teachers. “Two AR-15s and we f*** up [teachers' names],” in a reference to two teachers whom they should shoot. Another student commented “headshot”.'

 

he is just an idiot....:rolleyes:

 

(the boy,....)

If the creator had left a button in a cave somewhere, painted it bright red with the warning "do not press this, it will destroy the universe" you can guarantee the paint wouldnt have dried before someone pressed it to see what would happen.

Yeah, the kid's a prat, and that is a shockingly informative and balanced article.  Don't they know how to journalist properly?

I disagree because sure they know it's an ARP 9 but this quote is ridiculous considering they already know it's not a real gun.

 Instagram photo in which he appears to be holding a sub-machinegun, or airsoft replica

The quote is not ridiculous.  In the picture he does appear to be holding a gun or a replica.  The article also gives a balanced & to the layman, an educational view of airsoft.

 

He was suspended for the idiotic comments that he and his friends made with regard to teachers in the school.

He produced his own evidence against him by posting it on the internet

The article knows it's a ARP-9 they could of said "it looks just like a SMG" but they act like it could be a SMG in the picture when they know it's not. To the uneducated it's like they are saying they THINK it MIGHT be a ARP9  but it might not at least from that line. It's the only bit that really bothered me in the article.  

 

They gave us a fair shake compared to most places at least.

What are you all talking about with this 'ARP-9' and 'SMG' rubbish. It's obviously an GLOCK AK-47 assault rifle, specifically the AR-15 variant.
