There is a recent news article that is causing a stir. It seems a young man was kicked out of school and spent 13 days in jail for having a knife in his car.
This is more than just a young man, he has completed an EMT training program. The knife was found in an EMT medical vest, which was locked in the trunk of his car.
I remember when carrying a pocket knife in school was no big deal. Especially if you were taking wood working class. Just do not take the knife out in school. There were a few times when boys had their knife out cleaning under their finger nails, or cutting on a stick, teacher walk by, say put your knife away, no big deal.
Society is turning boys into sissies.
How can we take pocket knives away from boys, or expel them from school for having a knife, but expect those same boys to fight in wars?
How can be train our boys that violence is bad, but expect those same boys to kill the enemy when they are grown?
Boys will be boys. They need to have a knife, they need to own a gun, they need to fight and learn to settle their differences without shooting each other. Because those boys will be our future leaders, soldiers and law makers.
Do you want a bunch of sissies fighting the next war, or do you want men? Boys and sissies do not win wars, men win wars.
Society has a whole needs to reconsider the path we are going down. This politically correct and zero tolerance stuff is going to do more harm than good.
