It may be because I am going to be a teacher in a few years but I like the zero tolerance policies. The reason they are there is to protect the school and its employees from all of the psycho parents that want to sue for their child getting punished for doing something wrong. Before the zero tolerance policies the punishments were chosen by the teacher or the principal which gave the sue-happy parents someone to blame and try to take to court. Now with the zero tolerance policies they can't claim their child was singled out because everyone gets the same punishment. As far as this case is concerned, I think it was right to be rescinded. Kids have been playing cops and robbers or cowboys and indians forever. This was just an example of zero tolerance policies being taken too far.
