High School Student Wrestles Gun Away From Classmate… And Gets Suspended For It!?

A 16-year-old Florida high school student says he’s been suspended for three days after wrestling a gun away from a classmate on a school bus.
According to FOX affiliate WFTX-TV, the 15-year-old suspect took out the loaded gun and pointed it at another student. He was charged with possession of a firearm on school property and assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.
The hero student was then given an “emergency suspension” as part of the school’s zero-tolerance policy on fights involving a weapon.
So how can a student be punished for protecting his fellow students?
Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in on the situation this morning on Fox and Friends. He said it’s part of a larger problem, of “putting society in a position where you’re afraid to do the right thing,” and he pointed to the shocking story about a California nurse who said she was prohibited from giving CPR to a dying woman.
He said “something’s very wrong” with the “P.C. police” in schools when you have kids getting suspended for mimicking having a gun and students getting automatic suspensions for trying to defend others.

I kind of understand the emergency-suspension in that it's a quick attempt to defuse a potentially volatile situation & give the administration an opportunity to evaluate what's really going on. My question would be, "what do they do to compensate the suspended hero for this lost time after it's determined he did the right thing?" and "why isn't the focus on the kid that was actually committing a crime & threatening another student?".

It's like the story about the kid who was suspended for chewing his sandwich into the shape of a gun, you just wonder where's the logic. Around here, the other day, a kid who works out of the local Air National Guard base walked into his high school alma-mater in his fatigues to pick up some paperwork, and they locked down three schools in a panic, even after the kid had been seen/identified/cleared by security.

I see the schools overreacting to minor security issues, then underreact when they have an actual security issue like with this kid on the bus.

WTF? Get a hold of yourselves people (in our schools).
