The link below contains an interview with the mother. She says that she was observing her child because of numerous reports from the school regarding the boys’ bad behavior. Her son was placed in the room because after throwing food in the cafeteria he ran outside the school and had to be chased by a staff member. Apparently, after being outside and getting wet in light rain, he was placed in the room and was likely cold because of damp clothing. Nowhere in the Blaze, nor in the interview by the local reporter, does it say that he was alone in the room, but the Blaze indicates a large ball in the room to be used as a chair for an observer. Mom says that she is going to home school for the remainder of the school year. What, for a one month? Oh, and her son was denied a snack. Really? Denied a snack? Apparently a snack is now a “right.” Dad has consulted an attorney. Wow, what a surprise. Throw the kid out of the school and attempt to educate the 99% of the remaining children and let mom and dad deal with whatever behavioral problems their child has. Children like this steal class time from the majority of kids that don’t have these “issues”. This will not be a popular post with some but I feel that it is just another symptom of political correctness that insures that the majority of people must change their lives to accommodate whatever minority wants, needs, feeling, or beliefs are.
While I largely agree with your post, you have over looked a very important part of the story. Assuming the story is accurate, there could potentially be a mental health issue involved here. I can recognize the symptoms as my wife has BPD and bipolar 2. There is a suggestion that it is hereditary, and by the actions of my oldest son, I would most certainly agree. He is the only one of my four children that has fits of rage and often tells himself out loud how much of a failure he is. I take those opportunities to hug and council him on the right behavior, but he often reverts back to the same way he treats himself. I can assure you that it is not learned behavior as I would NEVER say to him any of the things he tells himself.
Don't give up on people just because they don't conform to what you think normal should be. Work to identify the root cause, and try to help provide the resources a kid like that would need. You never know, a different kind of attention could prevent a suicide. It seems like you are the type of person that wonders why no help was given to people that lose their mind and do bad things to themselves. This is the golden opportunity, and its looking them in the face.
Like wildchild, I agree with most of your post. Sadly, his behavior problems apparently may be rellated to a mental health issue, the parents are handling it very badly, and the school was doing what it needed to do in order to continue teaching the rest of his class without having to constantly deal with his outbursts. He has a problem, and forcing him into an environment he cannot deal with - and forcing the school to handle it - is how things get out of control. whether it is truly a mental health problem - who knows. Half the kids diagnosed with ADD and ADHD are just kids who need a trip to the woodshed on a regular basis. It's amazing what a serious round with a switch will do as an attitude adjustment - which is what we used to tell our kids they would get if they didn't straighten their butts out - immediately. They knew we said what we mean and we mean what we say.

Well, then, by his logic, the best way for Christians to defend ourselves against verbal religious attacks is to begin to shoot or attempt to shoot several night time talk show hosts because then it would be stupid for them to continue to do so, even though they have the RIGHT to do so? The Saturday Night Live cast would be in REAL trouble, then. No more Catholic priest molestation jokes? No more nun costumes and derision? No more detrimental “Jesus” jokes because all of the comedians would fear retribution? That’s why we don’t hear any Muslim jokes. Maybe that’s the answer, then; take pot shots at anti-Christian newspaper writers, comics, and news people. Who wudda thought that the answer has been right under our noses all of this time because this clown (Richard Fowler) just said that to do so is just inviting trouble because it is insulting Muslims and they may react violently. I suppose we Christians are just behind the curve so we’re still open season because we DON’T react violently. By gosh, he may be right! (Yes, Blaze Police, that is sarcasm, political humor,etc-no need to remove my comment).

Early last year the charge was that “he wasn’t Black enough”. I can’t wait to see what he’ll be tagged with this year…..

Plavelle, the foul mouthed coward was fortunate that the corrections officer didn’t insert the cowards’ skateboard up a body cavity, wheels and all. Preferably sideways.

Thanks, Scrooples, that gave ma a chuckle.

That statement right there is likely the feeling of many voters today. I for one am tired of voting for the lesser of two evils. We have no and I do mean NO any true leaders in either of the two major political parties and whatever third party might emerge is merely throwing our votes away. It’s a hell of an effort for me to get excited about 2016 with the exception of the relief of not having to turn on the news to see what laws our Emperor has decided to disregard on any given day and the reaction of Congress to the actions. Hell yes, a “no confidence” vote to allow us to throw out the bums IN BOTH PARTIES’ would be a vast improvement over the existing system.
Excellent idea-- appreciate you not voting for Romney so we endure four additional years of "progress" and destruction of America.
Better yet-- bring your lukewarm reluctant vote...while muttering "it doesn't matter, the parties are almost the same"

Okay, that then would leave us with an average diameter of 64″, or five FEET! . Nope, not buying it.

Here is the actual footage of Hillary’s miraculous escape from certain death. The added graphics only serve to expose the absurdity of her comments. I’m sure we will be seeing something similar with Mr Williams near death experience soon as well.
If anyone should be an expert on moons, it should be THIS guy. By the way, did anyone catch his pronunciation of the word “amazing”? Evidently it’s now pronounced aMAHzing. He says it twice at the beginning of the video. He likely believes that it makes him sound highly educated. He’s wrong.
That comes from the community that thinks "tricky Dick" does not refer to Nixon!

Nailed it! Thank you.

Well, since we all know people that guns kill people and (and people don’t) they are damn lucky that those buried weapons didn’t unwrap themselves, lock and load, and start firing at them. THAT’S why he was panicked!
In Georgia, it would have been time to go hunting.

Murry, you may want to explain to the liberal trolls that “Incontinent” doesn’t mean that he’s currently in North America.

Yep, teach them to fish because giving them fish just makes ‘em “fish dependent”.

Quincy, what are your thoughts regarding term limits? I don’t see a downside to removing ALL career politicians from office after two terms. I think that the continuation of the “old boys club” is the reason we have mediocre people in both parties running our Country and the only way I can see that changing is to throw the bums out but perhaps you have a different slant on things. I’m really interested in your opinion. Thank you.

Well, if the evidence supports the story (axe handle fingerprints, DNA in masks, etc), then this is another fine ending to a story. Unfortunately the kid will likely get off relatively lightly unless he has a long juvenile record. That said, one out of two good results is batting .500.
Hopefully the prosecutor has some stones to charge this bottom feeder with attempted murder; I think any jury will convict the accomplice to the beating of an old man over the head with an ax handle of attempted murder.
