This is the latest from a judge: “Ordinary tools, such as pliers, screwdrivers and wrenches, are ‘weapons’ and so a Chicago school was correct to punish a teacher who brought them to class for a visual aid, according to a new court decision.
“The ruling from a federal court in Illinois technically dismissed a lawsuit brought on behalf of teacher Douglas Bartlett. He had been suspended without pay for four days ‘on the grounds that his use of the tools as visual aids endangered his students, despite the fact that all potentially hazardous items were kept out of the students’ reach.’”
The claim that tools are weapons is now part of the legal record that can be cited in future cases. Given this type of “logic,” everything is a weapon. Let’s force the logic of the school and judge in the tools as weapons case and argue that water should be banned since (1) people drown in it and (2) it has been used as a murder weapon. Andrea Yates confessed to drowning her five children. “Laurel Michelle Schlemmer, 40, of McCandless, Pa., was arrested for drowning her 3-year-old son Luke and critically injuring his 6-year-old brother Daniel.”
