Think Tank Tuesday 10/14/14: Does This Honor Student's Punishment Fit The Crime?

As the old adage goes, if you do the crime, you do the time, but what if you do the crime... unknowingly? Such is the case of  Atiya Haynes a 17 year old honors student who accidentally took a pocketknife to a high school football game. Initially the school expelled her but altered her punishment to suspending her for the rest of the year. Read the whole story here!

Most schools have a No-Tolerance Policy in regards to weapons on school grounds so harsh punishments are slapped on students who break this rule knowingly and unknowingly, but is this fair?

Should a student who accidently brings a weapon to school receive the same degree of punishment as a student who brings a weapon to school with malicious intent?
