School Bans Balls, Tag, Cartwheels Lest Someone Gets Hurt

Under our rule by moonbats, the coercive wussification of America advances ever further:

[O]fficials at Weber Middle School in Port Washington [NY] are worried that students are getting hurt during recess. Thus, they have instituted a ban on footballs, baseballs, lacrosse balls, or anything that might hurt someone on school grounds. …

[D]uring recess, football is out and Nerf ball is in. Hard soccer balls have been banned, along with baseballs and lacrosse balls, rough games of tag, or cartwheels unless supervised by a coach.

As always, an expert is produced to support absurd restrictions on our liberties for our own good.

Long Island Jewish Medical Center emergency room director Dr. Salvatore Pardo said he has been seeing “head injuries, bumps, scrapes; worried about concussions.”

But some parents said it is really about liability and lawsuits.

A scraped knee used to build character. Now it buys a lawyer a new Lexus at the expense of taxpayers. Consequently, a generation of flabby weaklings will grow up afraid to engage in any physical activity. But this won’t leave them any worse off in a world dominated by looters and parasites, in which the only way to get ahead is to portray yourself as a victim.
