n*******e, take my test. I will go into a room where someone is above the ceiling pouring rain on me. Heck, make it a hundred people pouring rain on me. You go into a room with someone shooting you with an airsoft gun.
I don’t know NS, have they? Please give us your research or just step away and admit that was a crazy, baseless analogy.
Another idiotic novasteve post, slowly and completed deconstructed.
Steve, people will have more respect for you if you admit you were wrong (about both the facts of this case and whether airsoft pellets hurt) than if you continue to try to defend the assertions you put forth. Have a great day!
yea seriously, we could have so much better dialogue if you would ever just say “yea, now that I think about it, what I said was wrong and a little crazy.”
I think it’s a little ridiculous that the child in question would be expelled for this (as it didn’t occur on school property or during school time). Seems a little odd that the school would get involved.
But yeah, airsoft hurts! It’s not like these are nerf guns. Those suckers STING.
100% school over-reach. This is a job for the parents, or at most the local beat cop to come down and have a nice, long, scary talk. This incident had nothing to do with school.
Now that the kid is suspended, he’s going to have a lot of free time to…I dunno…screw around with Airsoft guns.

They were shooting at kids at the bus stop and were not just in their yard, as they claimed. Also, I heard on the news this morning that one of the kids has a very long history of disciplinary problems at school. These kids aren’t the sweet, innocent children their parents are trying to portray them as.
So the busstop belongs to the school? My busstop was someone’s driveway… Should that homeowner be arrestedfor violating drug free school zones should they have had anything that violated it? This didn’t happen at school.PERIOD
He’s not a homeowner, steve, he’s a student. I’d say behavior of a student at a bus stop directed at other students is fair game for school discipline.
Also on the walk home from the busttop? If htey live in the same neighborhood, if one bullies the other, is it a school matter if it is in the neighborhood? After all, it’s another student.
“Also on the walk home from the busttop? If htey live in the same neighborhood, if one bullies the other, is it a school matter if it is in the neighborhood? After all, it’s another student.”
No, only at a bus stop.
Got another one, steve?
Why only at the busstop if they are both students? The busstop is no more school than the street walking to the busstop is. It is no more school than another student’s backyard is.
“Why only at the busstop if they are both students? The busstop is no more school than the street walking to the busstop is. It is no more school than another student’s backyard is.”
Yes, a bus stop to catch a school bus is more school than a street or backyard.
Excerpt from Statement from Matthew Delaney, Principal, Larkspur Middle School Virginia Beach City Public Schools. I bolded most pertinent sentence for emphasis.
In the course of the investigation, conducted in concert with a police officer and the school division Office of Safety and Loss Control, we identified the children who were firing pellet guns at each other and at people near the bus stop. Several students verified that they had been hit by pellets and had the marks to support their claims. In one instance, a child was only 10 feet from the bus stop and ran from the shots being fired but was still hit. Another student claimed to be shot in the back while running away during a previous incident Wednesday, Sept. 11. This child was also shot in the arm and head during Thursday’s incident. I contacted the school division’s Office of Student Leadership and School Board Legal Counsel for guidance. Because students were on their way to or at a school bus stop when they were struck by pellets, the school division has jurisdiction to take disciplinary actions against those students responsible for the disruption. There is an expectation that all students should be able to travel to and from school in the safest environment possible.
