It is not the school officials fault. They have a phobia from when they were a teen, someone blew a soap bubble at them, it lodged in their throat, and they tasted soap for the rest of the day.
Well it sounds as logical as them labeling this little girl a terrorist. But adults can brainwash kids into doing horrible things, taking a grenade, running up to someone and releasing the handle. Wearing a heavy vest, ,going into a crowd, and someone distant dialing the cell phone attached to it.
So let us not brand the school officials for lack of common sense and using the intelligence they you think they would have. In today's viewpoint, it is just not their fault, it has to be someone else's!
