10-year-old arrested for cutting steak with knife

Weird how all my life I've been deceived into thinking steak knives were silverware, not weapons. I'm glad the right-wing educrats are finally setting me straight on that!

In Ocala, Florida, a 10-year-old girl was arrested and taken to juvenile detention because officials at her elementary school saw her cutting her steak at lunch with a tiny steak knife she brang from home.

I swear I am not making this up.

The school actually expects students to eat steak without cutting it.

The charge is - get this - possession of a weapon on school property, a felony. So now - if the school gets its way - it looks like the girl is going to be in juvenile hall until she turns 21 all because she tried using a steak knife for its intended purpose.

School officials cry that they had no choice but to arrest the student. The hell they didn't! Did a giant Allowed Cloud come along, pick up the knife, and threaten to slice their faces off if they didn't?

If there isn't a lawsuit over this, it'll be a miracle. Schools have no objection to ruining a 10-year-old's life over cutting a steak, while in another case in the same state they won't prosecute an 18-year-old for making terrorist threats, because they say the 18-year-old is a minor (even though the age of majority in Florida is 18 as it is in most of the country).

Man, the rightists who run America's schools are dumb!
