Tolerance zero

In the wake of various acts of violence in recent years, school administrators no longer hesitate before turning a child over the criminal justice system for the most petty of offenses.

Just for the record I would like to state that I am guilty. When I was in the third and fourth grade, my best friend and I used to draw all sorts of violent, sexist, disturbing stick figure drawings and the teachers never even blinked (click to enlarge).

I still have two three notebooks full of drawings. Yep, I kept them. And my old best friend is now a cop. Here's one of his drawings of a series of torture rooms:

The evidence is right here. Come and arrest me you chicken-shit motherfuckers.

I won't mention all the stuff we set on fire and blew up.

In related news, I just finished reading Columbine by Dave Cullen. It's an excellent retelling of exactly what happened with plenty of cogent psychological analysis. Forget all the myths you've heard, this is the real deal. Except in the minds of the negative reviewers.

“When we do programs to support the family, we are not thinking about homosexuality, but for homosexuals, any endorsement of the family as God ordained it is an attack on them. It demonstrates their paranoid obsession with getting the society to endorse their lifestyle and silencing those who won’t.”

...commenters at other blogs suggested that Satan was getting back at Euteneuer for his exorcism work. "Being exposed to demons is not an easy thing," one person wrote. "Sometimes the demons will purposely twist the bodies of their victims that will have their sexual parts touch the one who is trying to remove the demons. This, I am sure must have happened several times to Father Tom." Others pinned the blame directly on the women who accused Euteneuer.
