Zero Tolerance For Red Eyes
September 10, 2010 9:31 PM   Subscribe

Administrators at Byron Nelson High School in Trophy Club suspended a 16-year-old boy on Tuesday because his eyes were bloodshot and they thought he might have been smoking marijuana. The teen said he was not high. Instead his eyes were red because he had been grieving the loss of his murdered father.

This is about power, not security (from drugs.)

This feels a lot like "outrage filter" to me. What are we supposed to discuss here?

How many of these "High School Administration Outrage"-filter posts does Metafilter need? It's not even news in any substantive sense, it's just stupid shit that happened somewhere.

Generally, the people who work at a highschool are the people who really, really enjoyed highschool. In other words: sadists, psychopaths, sycophants, tyrants and twits.

Some folks work there because they are true-born educators, or victims who want to change the system from the inside. They quickly become bitter because grieving boys are punished simply because some adult doesn't like him.

Grawrrr. My eyes are bloodshot daily. It's because my contacts piss off my eyes. I always worry my work thinks I'm hitting the bong when I'm just exhausted.

I'm going to have my brownshirts shove a rusty nail covered two by four up your nose while I cackle with glee on my balcony, assuming my principal says its ok. Hur dur.

This may be outrage filter, but if no one ever hears about these things, and no one ever talks about the ridiculous results of America's drug hysteria, they never stop happening.

I work at a high school. Do I get my choice of labels?
