6-year-old expelled for having Cub Scout utensils.

A 6-year-old in Newark, Delaware had just joined the Cub Scouts and brought his new Cub Scout camping utensil to school to eat lunch with it.  In addition to a fork and spoon, it had a knife.  A school authoritarian declared it a weapon and the school board exercised its zero intelligence policy and expelled him.  Because, no joke, he could poke someone's eye out with it:  “There is no parent who wants to get a phone call where they hear that their child no longer has two good seeing eyes because there was a scuffle and someone pulled out a knife.”  They forget fingers can poke just as well, and they have knives attached called fingernails.  Maybe they'll try declawing kids next, or make them wear mittens.
