An eighth grade student from Weaverville Elementary School got a detention slip for sharing his school prepared lunch Tuesday.
Kyle Bradford, 13, shared his chicken burrito with a friend who didn’t like the cheese sandwich he was given by the cafeteria.
Bradford didn’t see any problem with sharing his food.
"It seemed like he couldn’t get a normal lunch so I just wanted to give mine to him because I wasn’t really that hungry and it was just going to go in the garbage if I didn’t eat it," said Bradford.
But the Trinity Alps Unified School District has regulations that prohibit students from sharing their meals.
The policies set by the district say that students can have allergies that another student may not be aware of.
Tom Barnett, the Superintendent of the Trinity Alps Unified School District says that hygiene issues also come into play when banning students from sharing meals.
"We have a policy that prohibits students from exchanging meals. Of course if students are concerned about other students not having enough to eat we would definitely want to consider that, but because of safety and liability we cannot allow students to actually exchange meals," said Barnett.
Bradford’s mother Sandy Bradford thinks that her son did the right thing by sharing his lunch. She also believes that it isn’t up to the school to discipline her son for good manners.
“By all means the school can teach them math and the arithmetic and physical education, but when it comes to morals and manners and compassion, I believe it needs to start at home with the parent,” Sandy said.
Bradford says that he would definitely share his lunch again if a friend wanted a portion of his meal.

How to Know You’ve Been Playing a Character For Too Long: A Novel by Jensen Ackles

So there’s a Japanese slang term, ‘chuunibyou’, that roughly translates to “Middle School 2nd Year Syndrome.” It is used to describe the stupid phases people go through when they are 14, like pretend to be really hardcore, act like they know everything, say they have mystical powers, etc.

I’m so happy this term exists.

Benny’s right, Dean. That’s like the first thing you say. You’re getting slow on the uptake. Vampirates are just slower.

It’s this idea of “Hey, dudes are dudes.”

Jon Stewart is now evidently a feminist.  Is there any other lower form of pandering that this liberal bootlicker won’t conform to?

Since I don’t watch his show anymore, I’m curious though what his solution was for this observation?  Perhaps he believes, like his fellow feminists, that we can prevent rapes from happening altogether by simply telling men not to do it in the first place?  And while he’s solving that societal transgression, I suppose he’ll also start preventing murders, arson, and theft as well.  Jon Stewart can figure it out though, the guy is a genius purportedly.

Whoa there buddy, Unfollow. He’s simply STATING that its always about telling women to be careful, and dress differently, but not much about telling men to not do it in the first place or maybe telling them to be careful as well. Not saying, “MEN ARE ALL AT FAULT FOR RAPE. IF WE TELL THEM NOT TO, THEY WONT.”

And as for this post, “OK, WE GET IT. YOU’RE A HUGE DUMB ONE SIDED ASS HOLE, YA DON’T HAVE TO TRY SO HARD.”

It would appear a pot smoking fan of Nick Offerman has followed me by mistake thinking I’m akin to his same liberal tendencies.  I’m sorry to disappoint you, but Jon Stewart is a complete buffoon that caters to the young, ignorant, and uninformed.

My comments still stand.  Men already know not to rape.  It is illegal.  No amount of informing society that this is wrong will ever prevent the actual men (and women) from committing said crime.  Helping women to be safe in avoiding possible sexual predators, such as the men who creating the date-rape test fingernail polish, is a good thing.  It’s no different than all people taking precautions from being mugged or attacked in certain situations.

But by all means, unfollow me if you don’t want to learn a thing or two.

Yet again, He’s also trying to inform that its not JUST women who get raped, and men should also take precautions. Never said anything about stopping rape altogether, its inevitable, but people should still be informed about it. Stand by your point by all means, but you’re just offensive. So gladly goodbye.

Oh and way to go, looking at my backround, and just making assumptions. I followed because at one point you had political views I agree with and sometimes do, but this was just offensive. Get off your high horse. I may not be the most informed, but neither are you.

Damn you for making watch this clip, but it’s pretty obvious what he’s saying.  He’s said, “nobody is saying, ‘hey, maybe men should not drink.  Because that might make them [rape women]” as in when men drink they are prone to raping women.  Start at 8:42.  It’s as clear as day.

Your notion that he is alluding that ‘men get raped too’ is completely false.

Don’t fault me at knowing exactly what Jon Stewart was saying and who he was pandering to.  If you have been following me for over a week, you know what my political stances are and how much I loathe creeps like Jon Stewart.
