Sometimes just having a knife in your pocket will get you in trouble

….when you aren’t supposed to and then are dumb enough to brag about it.

arrestYeah, we all do dumb things sometimes, but even when we don’t- we have to be careful nowadays.

Yesterday, a student made mention to someone he had a pocket knife, and he was overheard. This guy obviously, I’m guessing, wasn’t supposed to have his EDC.

Now he is having the book thrown at him- he was arrested on multiple counts and may end up getting kicked out of school, permanently. I’m not for breaking rules and there are consequences to our actions, BUT, or is it, AND we all make mistakes- even dumb ones sometimes.

The Director of the school declared to the Lynn Daily Item, “I am zero-tolerance. If you want to have something like that in here you are going to be out the door.”

The worse part, as I read it, is the student had it in his pocket, but then he made a second mistake by telling somebody, third- dumb thing- he said it loud enough he was overhead.
