Zero tolerance

As reported by Kevin, Say Uncle, Sebastian, Dave Workman, and probably others there was “Another victory for zero tolerance” (as Workman said it) recently. A kid was suspended from school for following the rules. Or just as accurately the principal did not follow the rules and punished a kid.

I could say a whole lot about this but ten years ago Fritz Sands said it sufficiently well in two sentences that ten paragraphs by me would be wasted effort.
