    Screwy school fight rules

    My high school has a policy that says if you are in a fight, you get suspended. That means literaly, if a kid hates you for some reason, and he starts punching and kicking you, if you so much as touch him, even just enought to back off, you get equal suspension time from school.
    Isnt that crazy? I mean, that teaches kids not to do anything for themselves, and to rely on autorities. Personaly, if some kid started hurting me, I hit him/toss him where it hurts, so they won't do that to me or one of my friends ever again.

    Does that make sense?
    The only good thing about freezing beyond feeling in the final Nordic ski race was that I couldn't feel that tumble I did going about 30 mph, maybe more.
    On the other hand, not feeling any part of my body for 30 minutes was scary, especialy for my manhood.

    Yeah chief, the schoolz have gotten so ridiculous with their zero-tolerance -- little kids can't even make a gun gesture with their hands and play war like the old days -- they're suspending 5yr olds now...

    It's also a dumb policy b/c now a dayz other A-holes jump into fights for no reason... so if 2 dudes have a beef the crowd will goad them into fighting just so some foolz can jump in and beat on one of 'em... and then the 2 dudes are the only ones who get in trouble as everyone else scatterz. This policy seemz to reward jump-in fights.

    I have zero-tolerance for ZERO-TOLERANCE

    I broke a kid's nose freshmen year in geography class. He only pushed me but we both got suspensions.

    it makes more sense to just fight as hard as you possibly can if someone goes after you because the authority doesn't get laid enough and they make stupid rules

    u think thats bad?? We had a jock walk up to a nerdier looking student, whom they had never had contact with before, and punch him in the face. The nerdier kid, for lack of better description, never touched him or did anything but curl on the floor from fear. They both got 9 days suspension and his immaculate discipline reccord was wrecked for a jock.

    THATS bad.

    Maddox speaks wise words.

    Dude I hate that crap too, like when that nerd got hit, makes me want to die.

    That happened to my brother, some jerk punched him and my brother got suspended.

    I swere sometimes I just want to get sent to the office and freaking go on a rant about how stupid it is.

    Of course one time I was in the office and I explained my self very clearly and I was right. The principal said, "Well even if the teacher was wrong, you still are getting ISS because that's the rules."

    I was like well why don't you just put me there instead of wasting my freaking class time being retarded.

    I HATE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

    I don't think private would be any better though.

    I think my school might win. It's policy to suspend whoever won the fight for longer than the loser...regardless of who started it.

    Yeah...I know.
    Away.

    Reading this crap makes me want to vomit! I think the nerd should be hanged for not standing up for himself.

    I was dealing Black Jack at a casino on a table looking into a bar.

    Getting more chips (money) brought to the table by a security guard and a manager.

    In the bar a small guy and a HUGE guy are arguing. I could see the huge guy getting more aggressive each sentence, gesturing at the small guy with his finger and shouting. I could almost see the thoughts go through the small guys mind.

    “F*** this guy is BIGGGGGG!”
    “He’s going to hit me!”
    “I better get in first.”

    SMACK!

    As the big guy launched into his next tirade the small guy suddenly picks up a glass and smashed it on the big guys head (he could just reach). The big guy reels back and then recovers and comes forward trying to grab the small guy.

    SMACK!

    The small guy hits him with a second glass. Blood and coke everywhere. Security guys running from all directions. Little guy standing there with his hands up, as if surrendering, big guy on the ground bleeding.

    Of course the little guy got charged with assault occasioning bodily harm and probably went to goal (and meet some other nice big boys….)


    He could have just walked away in the beginning with just some lost pride………

    Perhaps that is the lesson the school is trying to teach you.

    Wow Some schools there.. When i was in school(now in college) we never used to take a fight to the teachers or the authorities.. Just settle them outside the class with friends... That was fun..

    $$$$, man. If somebody touches you in my school, it's a ticket to beat the living crap out of them. Some bullies exploit this by picking away at the normally nice kids until they lash out, and then beat them up because they started it.

    What can I say? Schools are the way they are because they aren't democratic.

    That's the bad thing about education. They tell you that you live in a democratic country, but they teach you in a dictatorship. Why? "Cause we say so."

    Ever wonder why everyone just follows the crowd and goes "moo"? Because that's the way they were taught to behave in school.

    Unschooling RULES!

    Schools are stupid. I hate school, it makes me want to die. Unfortunately most of our laws are stupid, not only does this apply to school but it also does in life. If someone breaks into your house, and you stab them, you get into trouble for it. It's gay, all that unfair laws like that do is insure that you do a good job of rendering the enemy unconscious (or worse) and perhaps hiding the body afterwards(in the case of house break-ins etc.) Cause really, if someone breaks into your house and tries to hurt you, and you end up killing them, would you want their family after you? Plus jail time? I know what I'd do...

    oh, and when I was in grade 8 I tried to take on a grade 12 student for pouring coke on my head. I got suspended for it, too... which is gay.

    The problem with wanting something is the fear of losing it, or never having it. The thought makes you weak.

    You should get suspended.
