Is this the type of society we want our kids growing up in? One innocent mistake can destroy years of hard work for the person doing his / her best to be a good person?

On the other hand, police who kill innocent people aren’t even charged? Rather, they are put on administrative leave until media attention dies down and then resume their law enforcement and killing innocent people duties…

Do we honestly have the right to expect great things from the youth of our country when the example we allow our government to set is so treacherous and disgusting that people can’t even grow tomatoes in their basement without a SWAT team descending upon them?? …Or we allow good kids being kicked out of school and charged with felonies and tried as an adult for attempting a science experiment without permission? Or we allow kindergardeners to be escorted home in police cars for wearing the wrong color shoes to school?

For shame.

We should expect no better than what we are getting if we allow our rights and our children’s rights to be trampled underfoot while simultaneously allowing all levels of law enforcement everywhere to look at all citizens as suspects. We are turning our citizens into sheeple and our society into a police state.

It’s sad to say, but shooting and killing innocent people is most often the fault of law enforcement officers these days.

As it turns out, in the same school district where this young man was expelled, arrested and charged with a felony for forgetting his gun was in his truck, TWO separate school administrators had brought guns to school at different times and still had their jobs as of the time of this incident.

Honors Student & Eagle Scout Charged with Felony and Expelled After Accidentally Leaving Shotgun in Truck

The trouble began when Withrow discovered he had accidentally left his shotgun in his truck once he arrived at school. He had been skeet shooting with some friends the day before.

Withrow tried to immediately call his mother to come and pick up the firearm, but he was overheard by a school official.

Withrow told officials the truth about what happened. Then he was arrested and immediately and permanently expelled from school.

According to Fox News,

“He didn’t know what to do,” Boykin, whose son is friends with Withrow, told Fox News. “If you jump in the truck and leave, then they get you for skipping school. Once you are there you have to say.

“I think it’s an injustice for this young man,” she added. “He’s a good guy. He’s loved by his classmates and his teachers. You don’t become an Eagle Scout by being a bad seed.”

She said the school district is sending a very bad message to students.

“You teach your kids if you’re in trouble or if you see you’ve done something wrong, go ahead and admit it,” she said. “Be a man and it’ll be fixed. In this case, that’s what he did and he’s being punished for it. That’s not the lesson we need to teach our kids.”

Withrow was just two weeks away from graduating with honors, but now he may not be able to graduate high school this year at all. He will have to wait 365 days in order to finish his last two weeks of high school. His life will be on pause – for trying to do the right thing.
