Rick Clements suggesting holding a BOR but not passing him. IMHO it is
unfair to put a kid through a Board which has pre-judged the issue - it
is a sham. OK, give him a disciplinary interview with the Troop
Committee if you must, but don't call it a Board of Review.
I cannot believe that anybody of average intelligence cannot understand
that a paintball gun fired at close range will hurt ... and what the heck
was he doing with it in anycase ? It's not something you would " just
happen to have in your pocket " ... the only reason for carrying a weapon
is if you are prepared to use it. Since it is not something I would
expect a kid to have for self-defence the only alternative is that he
must have premeditated an assault on the other kid. That is what worries me.
