Deadly, assault, office supplies

From Florida Today:

A 13-year-old student in Orange County, Fla., was suspended for 10 days and could be banned from school over an alleged assault with a rubber band, according to a WKMG Local 6 News report.

Robert Gomez, a seventh-grader at Liberty Middle School, said he picked up a rubber band at school and slipped it on his wrist.

Gomez said when his science teacher demanded the rubber band, the student said he tossed it on her desk.

After the incident, Gomez received a 10-day suspension for threatening his teacher with what administrators say was a weapon, Local 6 News reported.

The school classified his actions as a “Level Four” offense, and classification which includes arson, assault and battery, bomb threats and explosives, according to the school's Code of Student Conduct.  (I wonder is ScrappleFace will have a bit about WMD being found at a nearby Office Depot?)

Zero Intelligence also covered the story, which adds to the growing evidence that government schools have become the refuge of those too stupid to do anything else.
