Dedicated camera? What are you talking about? Policy wise, if the teacher thought he was a security risk he would not have returned the camera and would have been required by law to report the student. The teacher doesn't have the authority to determine that the student is not a threat. Also, asking two questions is hardly grilling the kid. I do teach. Students at my school, like most schools, are not permitted to bring cameras to school. In the current political atmosphere, the student and the parent should know better than to show off pictures of a gun, even a bb gun, at a school. Taking 5 days to tell his parents shows how completely unthreatened and unaffected the kid was by this.
What cellphone? The kid brought a camera in. If the kid had used a cellphone, which would have made sense, by the way, then he would have been a lot less conspicuous. Also, clearly the teacher did not think that the kid was a security risk since he was not even sent out of class and the camera was returned to him immediately. This article is all hearsay. There is no information from anyone who was actually there to witness the incident. There are so many holes in this story that it basically boils down to a bunch of bs. What kid would wait 5 days to tell his parents about a teacher acting like this? This article depicts the teacher as an anti-gun fanatic, and yet he just let the issue go and didn't report it to anyone? Just doesn't add up.

Another thing the author might want to consider - Why is there a picture of an Oscar statuette when the article is about network television? scrow - my posting answered that. many viewers are going to cable television, where they can watch shows with even less restrictions on sex and violence. In other words, there is a large number of viewers who think that network tv is still too conservative.
While the teacher grossly overreacted, why is everyone acting like the student did nothing wrong? He was in his class showing other students a picture on his phone. Why wasn't he doing his school work? If he wanted to show his friends the picture, there were many other more appropriate ways to do it. I'm sure he has a Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler, Instagram, or at the very least, an email account. He could have shown his friends the picture very easily through any of those methods. School officials do need to question students who are discussing gun use while at school. They can't assume that it is an innocent discussion. They shouldn't jump to the conclusion that there is a threat either. Both teacher and student are in the wrong here.

So, of the people who watch network tv, they are choosing the shows you mentioned, and networks should change this type of programming because clearly high ratings indicate that people want to watch something else? Seems like something is missing in your logic. Also, many of the people who aren't watching network tv are watching cable shows, where there are less restrictions on sex and profanity. Do you think that the people going to Netflix are all watching reruns of Little House on the Prairie? Also, Flashpoint is a relatively new show? It's been on since 2008! The reason it doesn't have more exposure is because it is a Canadian show. Perhaps some actual research would help you to write an article.
Seriously? At least own up to it. Why did you ask if he wishes he kept his son away from his sister? Why do you ask questions indicating that there is no hope of him becoming a grandfather? He'll cement his orientation? Men are never 'welcomed back'? Accept him for what he'll become and end the nonsensical pursuit of his acquiring straight labels? There isn't much of a gray area. If you're going to try to insult someone by using his child as ammo, at least be honest about your intent.
He tells a story about the fact that his son's moving out on his own does not negate or devalue his marriage since he and his wife are no longer actively raising a child and you translate it to mean that his son is gay and blame that on the fact that his sister is a lesbian? That is pathetic.
You know who has stated that she is a fan of Beyonce? DIANA ROSS!!!

I guess that you missed the point that it is a disgusting suggestion to essentially brand people as criminals based on nothing more than math.

The same category? That is the stupidest rationalization I have ever heard! You obviously think that they are the same or you wouldn't have brought it up as a point of comparison! You make several comments about homosexuals and pedophiles throughout this thread! If you are going to marginalize a group of people and base your opinions on bigotry and hate, be open about it. People would respect you more for at least being honest.

So you are upset that gay youths want to become part of a legitimate organization like the BSA instead of being raped by a group of pedophiles in NAMBLA? It's nice to know that you feel that children should be raped instead of included in a group that encourges good values. What a good Christian you are. Perhaps you should look into the difference between being a homosexual and being a pedophile.
