    Kid should be praised for being a hero and not treated like he did something wrong. Another school that is messed up and we wonder why kids are screwed up now.

    What role did he play right before the gun was presented.

    Just because he did good doesn't mean he's innocent.

    I have to disagree with him getting suspended.
    I am an avid Atlanta Braves fan. I don't collect cards anymore but do buy a pack here and there. I just had a son that I hope to get into collecting when he gets a little older. I constantly keep up with Braves news.

    This was my first thought too. Did he know about the gun prior to the incident and just not say anything about it un til it became an issue?

    From what I read, policy is to suspend all involved until a hearing on the matter when a gun is involved. There were actually two other students who helped disarm the gun holder who were suspended as well.

    So if he is found innocent of all charges how is he going to get the time back that he missed?

    Probably whine, moan and complain until he gets his way. With the general attitude of society there's no way he'll take "missed a couple days of school but saved lives and got hero treatment" as a win.

    In the grand scheme of things, missing a few days until the hearing won't kill him. I am a high school teacher and kids miss all the time. No big deal. What he is mostly missing is the accolades from his peers and teachers for being a hero. My guess is he would have gotten little to no actual learning done anyway due to the distraction of being the hero of the day.

    I do kind of see where the school is coming from as even though it had a positive ending his actions still could have made a very serious situation much worse and possibly put more students/faculty in danger

    So what should the alternative be? Just sit back and let his classmate, himself and others possibly be killed because he did nothing?
