Real News. Real Funny.
mr_a: If the school district has enough funding to get their solicitor, who probably clocks in at $250/hr, involved in this nonsense, then they have way too much money on their hands.
dbirchall: mr_a: If the school district has enough funding to get their solicitor, who probably clocks in at $250/hr, involved in this nonsense, then they have way too much money on their hands.I suspect the family lawyered up with Ficker, and the school had no choice but to throw Greco some money. But yeah, both sides are probably being stupid. Though I suppose missing 10 days of kindergarten could set their precious snowflake's life into some sort of downward spiral of drugs, violence and all that other nasty stuff.Oh, and Ficker? Seriously? Your ancestors got to Ellis Island and it didn't occur to them to tell the nice immigration people they wanted a name that was something other than German for "farker?" So we've got Farker vs. the Greek. Great. Somebody here is gonna take it up the ass.
Day_Old_Dutchie: School systems should be run by intelligent, rational-thinking individuals.As long as we continue to take the easy and lazy way out put these low-IQ morons and two-bit "sleazy car salesmen" politicians in the position of running the education system, we'll see these absolutely bonehead decisions over and over.
Madman drummers bummers: What's the problem here? If everyone had soap-bubble guns, the school would be a safer place.
Apos: BAN SOAP-BUBBLE GUNS!
ReverendJasen: Those bubble guns are fully automatic too. They'll keep shooting as long you hold the trigger down.
DrPainMD: FTA: "Attorney Robin Ficker says Mount Carmel Area School District officials labeled the girl a "terrorist threat" for the bubble gun remark, made Jan. 10 as both girls waited for a school bus."Ya know, if I got called to jury duty, and the case involved somebody killing this lawyer or the school administrator who made the suspension decision, I would have to vote not guilty. The planet would be so much better without those people.
