I’m sure you all remember the recent Baltimore “Pop-Tart Gun Crime“.
Well, it looks like at least one Maryland State Senator has some common sense – and is pissed enough to try and do something productive.
Sen. J. B. Jennings has introduced a bill that would describe “appropriate discipline that must be adhered to during counseling students of all grade levels in any Maryland school that uses public funds.” The bill reputedly includes a protocol for counseling and disciplining school administrators who violate these guidelines. And it further mandates that minor offenses such as the “Pot-Tart Gun Crime” not be entered into a child’s school records if it’s simply an instance of “kids being kids”.
Not sure what chance this has in the People’s Republic of Maryland legislature. But it seems a breath of fresh air nonetheless.
I’m normally not a fan of more laws. But when the lunatics are running the asylum and about to burn the place down, well, sometimes a new law just might be needed.
