    There's an actual picture of the "weapon" here: http://www.local10.com/education/girl-suspended-from-middle-school-for-cutting-peach-with-child-butter-knife

    "Zero tolerance policies" such as the one in this case are generally severely criticized by the Left.

    She was probably going to hold hostages until they made HC president

    Cultural norms and taboos have existed ever since human societies did.

    I'm curious, this happened in the school cafeteria, a place that I would expect there to be knives (or are American children required to eat with their fingers at school?), the way the article puts it the issue for the teachers seems to be that she cut a peach in half with her own knife and shared it. So had she not used the knife to cut something, but nevertheless had it visible would that have been fine? Would she still be in violation of weapons policy had she used one of the school cafeteria's knives to cut the peach? If not then is it all right to shoot someone with one of the school's guns (if they have one) but not if it is one's own?

    Making light of a butter knife potential terrorist I see.

    The butter knife terror sleeper cell could be a brand new branch of ISIS for all we know.

    Either that, or the young girl is hoping to become a female sex slave for Mo's soldiers. You see this either in bath houses in San Fran or in the Middle East.
