(CBS) INDIANAPOLIS - A gay Indiana teen whose mother gave him a stun gun to defend himself against bullies is facing expulsion for bringing the weapon to school and reportedly firing it into the air.
Firing a single shot weapon into the air is probably not the best tactic. However, it did work and success counts for a lot in a self-defense encounter. Nevertheless a mild rebuke is in order for lapse of good judgement.
Of course, the Principal of the school, instead of good advice and some common sense, comes up with this particular bit of stupidity:
Arsenal Tech principal Larry Yarrell says that Young is a flamboyant dresser and that school staff had been trying to get him to "tone down" his accessories.
OK, Principal Yarrel, What's next? You going to tell the next girl that get's raped it's her fault because she wore "provocative" clothing?
The inmates really are in charge of the asylum -- or at least in charge of schools in Indiana.
