Child uses child’s butter knife to cut peach, zero tolerance inanity ensues

Good Freaking Grief

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – A South Florida couple is outraged after they said their daughter was suspended from her middle school for using a child butter knife at lunchtime to cut a peach.

Ronald and Andrea Souto told Local 10 News reporter Michael Seiden that their 11-year-old daughter was suspended for six days for bringing the knife to school.

“This is a set of a spoon, fork and knife for toddlers — one year old,” Andrea Souto said. “It is made for children to learn how to eat properly. She’s used it since she was baby.”

According to the school district, the girl violated the county’s weapon policy when she used her butter knife in the cafeteria to cut the peach.

For this simple act, we are punishing an 11-year-old honor student? I have said it before, I will say it again, this is child abuse, and those pushing it should be nowhere near children
