    Title should be renamed, "Big Brother Will Raise Your Children for You Because He Can Do A Better Job......That Is If He Doesn't Abort The child First". Obviously way beyond the scope. Thank God for private schools!

    It is also VERY obvious that anyone that follows Piers Morgan's version of anything dealing with guns is brain dead. Piers Morgan has been on an anti gun kick since he moved here from England and is doing his best to spread misinformation about anything to do with guns! As for the suspension, plain fact is that the school went above and beyond their scope of authority and are setting themselves up for one heck of a lawsuit. If there is anything to be done with the situation, it can only be done through the legal system. . . .not the school, due to their complete lack of authority of anything that happens off of school grounds. This is nothing more than an agenda driven suspension and is completely void of supporting authority on behalf of the school to punish the child as he was not on school property.

    It's obvious to me that this is not so much an Orwellian plot, but rather a School who's trying to dodge any responsibility and potential liability (Insurance) by removing children from School.

    Having two of my own both working in both public and charter Schools, we assert that suspension doesn't solve much, but the 4C plan resolves conflict faster.

    Counseling, Cooperation, Consistency and Communication is key.

    If the suspension is NOT due to prior infractions, then perhaps both students should return back to School immediately, and under the following agreements:

    ~Parents assure neighbors (not School officials) that Gun Play/targets only consist of a backdrop that's strategically placed where the pellets won't extend the limits of their property, hit a random pedestrian, driver, car, Toddler strolling by, baby in stroller, neighbors Cat, Dog, pet ect.

    ~'Targets' aren't kids running away from pellets and towards the Schools bus stop, and routinely Supervised by one of the parents.

    ~The Mother of Khalid seeks some type of therapy for her son khalid whom doesn't really take on the victim role which is admirable, but he does admit to having a temper.

    Reality as I see it. Ms. Carabello, and parents of Biracial/Minority children can quickly find themselves in a position of dealing with people who have a heightened or elevated fear of the 'gun', remember the neighbor called before she knew her own Son was there? Ms. Carabello should take into consideration what might happen if Khalid takes a realistic toy off her property, and maintain consistency in discipline now.

    Yet another blaze blog void of facts, and strategically omits details, sighs.

    The question should be, should Kaleebs suspension be based solely on previous incidents of aggressive behavior, bullying and fighting at the School, or should the School's jurisdiction extend to the 10 feet within the Schools Bus where a young student got hit by their pellets on two separate occasions ?.

    Verbatim:
    "Several student's verified they were hit by pellets, and had the marks to support their claims. In one instance, a child was only 10 feet from the bus stop and RAN from the shots (pellets) being fired and was still HIT.
    "...Another student claimed to be shot (by the pellets) in the back during a PREVIOUS incident on September 11th. This SAME child was also shot in the arm and head during Thursdays incident.
    "
    Mathew Delaney, Larkspur Middle School-Virginia City Public School

    "...Because Ms. Caraballo signed a WAIVER and decided to make this a PUBLIC conversation, we can share that this is not Khalib's first disciplinary infraction, He has been suspended 6 times in less then 18 months for increasingly AGGRESSIVE behavior including Harassment, Bullying and Fighting.
    David D. Edwards. Chairman of the School Board City of VA Beach.

    Khalib says, "I have a temper". From the horses mouth....

    I heard this on te radio the other day. My questions are:

    1. How accurate/truthfull is the story?

    2. Even if accurate, what authority/basis and why does a school have to punish a child off school property and for nothing related to the school?

    Retraction: There is a smaller model of an airsoft pistol, but the charges mentioned 'guns' in the street' and the majority of the airsofts don't exactly look like toys.

    There's also a news link with a school administrator mentioning Khalid had 3 altercations and made him out to be a bully. Khalid denies this.
