"Zero tolerance" is stupid!


This man's self-control is epic. He is extremely qualified for his position and it is STUPID that he was fired.

Your thoughts?

PC and zero tolerance has gone too far. When you're dealing with combative violent people like this kid, you need to throw PC out the window. You're dealing in reality not some ideal fantasy land
Sorry - I don't understand. It's PC to be offended at the kids language. Can't this kid say whatever he wants? Isn't that free speech? The PC part would be telling him what words he can and can't say, no?

I'm finding the goal posts a bit willy-nilly here.

How is the kid speaking his mind PC and telling the kid he can't use that word NOT PC? Isn't that backwards?

Uh, no. The n word would be "fighting words" in any urban high school in the country.

The kid's speech is just context here. It's the guard's speech that's at issue.

This was wrongful termination, he's been hired already, and Cher is willing to pay for his legal fees.

It was wrong he was fired. A stupid move on the part of some incredibly stupid people.
