Re: "We live in the time we are dealt", don't think so, our kids are having to grow up in a police state, don't think that this society which the previous generations have put in place in order to allow them a sense of security is not going to have a "blowback" effect. It's nice this gentleman was able to afford to teach his son to stand on principle, but what about all the kids who can't afford this. When they end up in the "school to prison pipeline", their lives can be ruined before they even get off the starting line. JP courts should not be handling juvenile cases, and if they are they should be afforded the same protections. In the end it is all about money, school administrators should be handling these jobs and police should be out on the streets, not in the schools, where students don't know what their rights are and are not allowed to exercise them if they did, without incurring a disproportionate response from law enforcement.
