The boy’s father is now suing on his behalf.

Robert Bernard Keller sued the Beaverton Police Department and Beaverton School District in Federal Court. Beaverton is a suburb of Portland.

What is this doing to prevent school violence? Zero-tolerance policies are an attempt to make schools seem safer, when in reality, turning junior highs into juvenile-detention centers accomplishes nothing. I also find it ironic that zero-tolerance zealotry tends to pop up in solidly blue states, like Oregon. Maybe “liberals” really aren’t so liberal these days.
