Boy Twirls His Pencil In Class and Winds Up with a 5 Hour Mental Exam!

 
Thursday, June 12th, 2014 by Kyle Olson

Students will conform or there will be a price to pay.

New Jersey middle schooler Ethan Chaplin was twirling his pencil in class when his classmate yelled out, “He’s making gun motions, send him to juvie.”

NJ.com reports:

“The story that we expelled or suspended a student is partially not true … We did exclude” the student from attending until a proper psychological evaluation was done, interim Vernon Superintendent Charles Maranzano told the (New Jersey Herald).

If a student “demonstrates odd behaviors, non-conforming behaviors, it causes us to take a closer look,” he told the newspaper. “If a student gestures or demonstrates behavior that could be construed as a threat to others in a classroom … then that’s also a trigger for us.”

Ethan Chaplin, a Glen Meadow Middle School student, told News 12 last week that while he was twirling a pencil with a pen cap on in math class, a student who bullied him earlier in the day yelled “He’s making gun motions, send him to juvie.”

He was suspended for two days and then underwent five hours of a physical and mental exam at Riverview Medical Center’s crisis unit, his father told NJ.com.

The school principal also apparently followed the student around the building and he was “observed” in class.

The student’s father believed the superintendent compared his son to the Sandy Hook shooter.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

We were warned by the framers and told what would happen if we didn't watch our freedoms.  They were correct. 88kleenix
