13 Year Old Student Turned Over To Police For Doodling A “Hangman”


Zero-tolerance idiocy rears its ugly head! A junior high school in Portland called the cops on a 13-year-old over a doodle of a “hangman.”

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.

Keller, suing for himself and his son, B.R.K., claims that on May 2, 2013, his 13-year-old son “was interviewed at his school, Raleigh Hills, K-8, by officers of the Beaverton Police Department regarding an alleged threat of harm based on a doodle that was drawn during class.

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.
