Apply the Bully’s Veto and Trade My Liberty for Security – Please!

In this case, they apparently felt that a boy with such a book bag was likely to get the snot beaten out of him by other young boys and they were going to protect him by keeping him and his bag out of school. Is that a good policy?

Jizz agrees with Jim Joyner in apparently believing that it is.  Which makes both of them card-carrying members of the “Trade Liberty for Security” crowd.

It also establishes the “bully’s veto” as a permanent fixture of the education establishment.

Parents, if you want to avoid needlessly abusing your children, don’t send them to public school.  Or Jazz Shaw’s or Jim Joyner’s house.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
