Stunning twist in story of 7th grader suspended for playing with airsoft gun at home

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On Tuesday, Glenn talked about a ridiculous story out of Virginia Beach, Virginia involving 12-year-old Khalid Caraballo and two of his friends, who were suspended from school after playing with airsoft guns at Caraballo’s house. The story got a whole lot more stunning yesterday, when a disciplinary committee in the district unanimously voted to hand down long-term suspensions to the students.

TheBlaze reports:

Khalid Caraballo, Aidan Clark and a third student will reportedly be suspended until June, or the entire school year. However, the committee voted to hold the suspension in “abeyance” to allow the students to attend an alternative education program during the suspension.

A hearing will be held on January 27 to determine if the students will be permitted to return to school sooner than that.

“Here’s the deal: The school board last night voted 100%, not one dissension on the school board, not one. Not one dissenting vote. Not one,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “This is Virginia Beach, Virginia. Now, I don’t know about you, Virginia Beach, but I’d get into my car and I would go to the next school board meeting and I would bring everybody in my church and everybody in my 9/12 group and everybody I know and say enough is enough. I mean it really is time to decide. It’s going to get worse and worse and worse. And they are teaching you a lesson right now. They’re teaching you, be quiet.”

“You just can’t tolerate that,” Pat added.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Virginia Beach Public School Board Chairman Daniel Edwards defended the decision of the committee and said witnesses claim the boys were shooting other students in the street. Larkspur Middle School principal Matthew Delaney says there was a student only 10 feet from the bus stop fleeing from “from the shots being fired, but was still hit.”

According to TheBlaze, Delaney’s statement is suspect given that the Caraballos’ property, where the boys were playing is 70 yards from the bus stop and a 911 call supports Khalid’s claim that he never left his property.

“I think it was National Review had a good column today on this story and kind of won me over a little bit in that, like, everyone’s talking about this as a gun thing,” Stu said. “It’s really more of that Melissa Harris‑Perry ‘Your children don’t belong to you’ thing. Sure, we are all freaking out about the Second Amendment, but you go beyond that. This is people in their own yards.”

“Excuse me. Get the hell out of my yard. I mean, look at what they’re doing with Common Core. You think you have control of your kids? You don’t even have a right to know what they’re teaching. You don’t even have a right to question what they’re teaching. You don’t have a right to stand up and say, ‘They’re going to teach your kids and they are going to teach what they believe.’ That’s just the way it is. This is wrong, guys,” Glenn said. “And if you let it go through, you get what you deserve. Don’t let them continue to go down this path. Everybody needs to show up at that school board… You need 1,000 people to march in and just say, ‘We demand justice’ because this is none of your business. This is insane. And everybody here knows it. All of the school board? Not one dissension? Not one? It’s crazy. But that’s what you get when you have a press that is so compliant.”

    Why don’t someone take up a collection for all children of these circumstances and send them all to private schools, and remove them from these collectivist. Start a bunch of private schools that can compete with public schools. If Glen sees this I truly wish you would look at the school in Crane Origen.

    The police and the entire school board should be charged with child abuse, for that is what this is plain and simple.  This young boy will now be traumatized for life for just playing in his own yard like children have done for decades and it is 100% the fault of these nosy, control freak, paranoid, mentally unbalanced people that have inflicted this onto the unfortunate boy.  People like this are devoid of common sense and do not belong around children.

    This is why we homeschool and why we live rurally.  Yes I drive a long way to work each day and my husband tends to the teaching of our 12 year old and runs a leather and custom boot business from home, but we will sacrifice what we have to to protect our child from a public school education.  He is well socialized via church youth groups, 4H, and junior rodeo.  He is respectful, well spoken, and well behaved.  We are constatnly given compliments on the young man we are raising.  He has not only AirSoft guns, but real one also.  He has a bow and knows how to use all the weapons in our home.  He has a classic education along with a faith based curriculum.  I think we all as parents need to stand up to the government and take back our homes, schools, and especially our children from the government.

    Can someone explain to me how school/school board has authority to take action against a student on his parent’s own property? I think that is the angle that should be followed in pulling the school and school board into line. Has the family sought legal counsel? This whole thing is outrageous.

    Don’t you mean Crane, Oregon?  I used to live there and worked on a ranch.  Tell me what is going on there now with the schools.  The schools used to house the kids from 8th grade on because most of the parents lived so far away on ranches.  It was a good system.  I hope it is still a good system.  I know that the kids that went to that school and stayed through the week, were better schooled and they were great kids.

    Not sure about this one after reading the report below the story, by the chairman of the school board. I am against common core as it’s an over reach of government, but in this instance it’s a school board that has been elected locally.  IF you read in the bottom of the chairman’s report it mentions the student has been disciplined 6 times before this in less then 18 months with increasingly aggresive behavior, including harassment, bullying, and fighting that resulted in injuries.  I know if my child or grandchild were to be shot at by an airgun while attempting to get on a school bus, I would be upset as well, if I knew the child doing the shooting had had this many incidents against him previously and was still in the same school. It might do him good to go to the other school for a while if it helps his behavior. My son was bullied in middle school, and when we brought it to the attention of the administration, the ones who harmed him were given detention after school for a week, but they did not learn anything from that, but my son knew not to tell us if he was bullied after that, or it would be worse for HIM from the bullies!!

     ”Socialization” is a myth created by ‘educators’ to further justify what they’re doing with peoples’ children. When home educated kids out-perform public school kids in college and standardized tests, they have to find some justification. Apparently ‘Lord of the Flies’ isn’t part of a teacher’s curriculum. Look up the book “Hold on to Your Kids” by Gordon Neufeld. It discusses peer orientation and attachment. School is not only about education and socialization . . . it’s also about severing attachments to family. Whether it’s intentional or not . . . makes not difference. That’s what it does . . . .

    my friend an assistant autistic teacher went to court today fto testify on the boys behalf and has now lost his position and put on the sub list.  The school justified it by sying there were only five kids in his class and the other ta was contracted and he was not.

    Great time for the parents to finally HomeSchool and get their children out of the communist schools.

    The simplistic left-wing morons on the school board are seeking only one thing. Control of the children. Any parent which allows their children to play with toy guns is a deviant from the socialist idea of a “perfect” society. By suspending this “violent” social-outcast from school for a year he can no longer influence the well-behaved and properly “indoctrinated” children. (When I was a child I always wore my cap-guns and cowboy hat to school. During recess us 5th graders would play cowboys and indians. If our school-board tried to ban toy guns I can guarantee you one thing; EVERY parent within a ten mile radius would have stormed that school-board and DEMANDED to know what kind of mentally-deficient fruitcake was trying to ban toy guns from school ! They would demand from this clown a full letter of apology or he would very soon NOT be a member of the local school-board !)

    I was this childs age during the 60′s and can say that if I was firing my BB gun off of my property at anything, ie. other kids, passing cars, birds, the police would be called, my parents would have been notified, my BB gun would be locked up indefinitely, my a** wuppin would be assured. My school would have nothing to do with it.

    If these were my kids I’d: 1) take them to school myself, even if they should never go back there, and make them haul my ass off, and 2) buy more airsoft guns and invite their whole class to come over for a good old fashioned game of cowboys and indians.

    Ihope to God that lawyers are lining up to represent these kids and their families in suing the hell out of this school district!!  These progressives know that indoctrinating children makes it easier to impose the progressive socialist agenda in the future!  This is about the future of our country!!  Progressives are actually extremely destructive to this country because they believe inGovernment that they control!!  They don’t believe in any personal liberites because they think we as sheeple are to stupid to raise our children properly!!  FIGHT!  Unfortunately there are too many progressive lawyers as well.  If I was licensed in that State I would volunteer to help out!!

    Ranchman, you are more than right.  The problem is that way too many of us Americans, including many who talk like you do are still stumbling around in a stupor.  We, as a people, lack what it takes to face discomfort or adversity, to take on a government that will penalize us with the IRS and a host of other government predators.  Make no mistake, the moment someone becomes a real threat to the self appointed masters that person will be crushed.  People are angry but not yet ready to do something about it as civilized human beings; with intelligence, passion and a war of ideas. 

    If the discomfort continues to grow and the idiots destroying freedom keep pushing their dreams faster (because they are now so confident that they can not be stopped) the tragic, horrifying result may be violence in rebellion.  The trouble with that, besides the horror of Americans fighting Americans, is that the New Slave Masters of the USSA will then have a reason to forcibly crush their opposition in a national effort with the media cheering them along.   I hope and pray, and am doing what I can to influence others to also take action.  If we don’t make the choices to act now and stop the devolution of this nation into just another socialist swamp, the choice will be made for us. 

    I echo the words of Ranchman.  Wake up America and fight!  Fight in the arena of ideas and public discourse.  If we don’t unite and win, the new Czars of America will cut us from the heard in small groups, pit us against each other and then pick us of at their leisure, and most likely televise it for entertainment.  And Pray, pray like never before.

    Twas a good movie. Worth watching.

    You know what really allowed Katnis and Peeta to win?
    They found a loophole. They were given Door 1 and door 2, but managed to find the hidden door number 3:When they were the last two standing, they were both willing to commit suicide in order to prevent the government from having a “winner.”

    So, as Jesus so often did, let us liken this parable to our lives now.

    If we boil our situation down to its roots, we are basically given two options, both of which, the governent is waiting for us too choose between. The options are basically:

    1. Sit down and twiddle our thumbs, and then lose!

    or 

    2. fight like heck, (either violently or nonviolently) and still lose!

    Face it, if we take up arms against the government, it will only quicken the inevitable, AND get lots of people killed.

    If we fight, we lose, if we sit and protest, we lose.

    Time to start looking for the hidden door #3.

    I bought an airsoft gun to shoot squirrels that raided my bird feeder. When hit they just tuned around and laughed at me. They wouldn’t even run away after being hit form 12 feet away. Airsoft guns a threat to public safety? Give me a break! Liberal, anti-gun paranoia has gripped this nation and stupidity has taken the place of commonsense.

    Hey Cameron, I get where you are coming from about a third option.  I believe that the only reason America is so sick today is because believers fell asleep at the switch.  We let the moral fabric of our society unravel.  I absolutely agree that if an armed conflict arises, tyranny will descend and hundreds of thousands of people will loose their lives.  That is a horror we do not need.  When I talk about fighting in the arena of ideas and public discourse, I mean that we must be outwardly who we claim to be on the inside.  We must voice our faith, and for those who choose not to believe but still love a free society and the Constitution, they must find and moral standard greater than them selves and live it in the real world. 
     
    This war of ideas means that those who remember what things like honor, love, courage, respect, fidelity, integrity are begin to reach out and make genuine friends of the lemmings who blindly leap off the ledge into slavery; those who get their news from the comedy channel and their history from Hollywood, and demonstrate what it is to live a life of freedom and joy.  We must show them that even though it is tough and sometimes painful to be responsible for our own choices, the rewards of that kind of life are always worth the effort and pain. 
     
    And those of us who are Christians must learn to be friends with people with out trying to make converts like a used car salesman racking up monthly sales quotas.  If we are truly someone’s friend, they will ask questions about our faith and be open to make real choices. 
     
    I know that I will be scolded for that last line, but if God is real, and I believe that He is, I am not the one who makes converts.  Instead I live a life that makes it available and speak when I need to.  As far as living among my neighbors and in this country that is dying, I do discuss things with those who don’t see it.  I do fight against their ideas like letting the elderly die for cost effectiveness or that the state should have a say in raising children.  I vote and put candidates to some tough questions and interviews.  I write letters to the paper and my representatives,  I call local radio shows and show up at school board meetings.  I no longer am content to sit idly by with a live and let live mentality that only works when a society and culture is healthy and ‘good’.  And I have had some success encouraging others to change their perspectives and have opened some eyes to the tragedies sucking the life from our nation and her future. 
     
    But here is the bottom line.  I place my trust in Christ alone, not food stores, or a small farm, or guns, or votes, or any thing else I may get involved in.  All of those things are present in my life and are useful.  But in the end, the future of this nation rests in the hands of God, who does judge nations as well as individuals. 
     
    So yes I agree that a ‘door number 3′ or 4 or 5 or 6 or 7, is always available and that playing the games by the rules of the ruling class of pseudo kings is pointless and self defeating.  But speaking up and sharing ideas with individuals, with a purpose and a zeal is what I believe all of us who love America and the Constitution, and most of all freedom must do.  We must lay aside the issues that are used to divide us like religion or the lack of it, legalizing certain drugs, and attacking gays (gay rights is a joke because as citizens they have all the same rights I do ~ if they live different than they should claim the difference, not try to mimic those they are different from) and work together with all those who love freedom.  My God whom I serve will not fold up and disappear because I work side by side with a Mormon or a gay to keep a free country from being flushed down the toilet.  Speaking to people about to educate them to what is really going on in our nation is a fight I can win, one person at a time. If every single man and woman in this country would make it their mission to reach out and befriend one lost-in-the-dark- lemming who is willing to give up liberty for the illusion of protection and provision, teach that person the joy and strength of liberty and self-responsibility before the end of the year, those who love freedom would vastly outnumber the root-in-Marx destroyers.  Then one more out reach before spring is over and this country would dump the idiots and the real work of restoring a great nation would begin.  Al in less than eight months. 
     
    So that is what I mean by fight.  I apologize about being long winded, but this idea is much larger than a bumper sticker (so the progressives will never understand it ~ couldn’t resist).  Every one who reads this, find what works best for you and find one person who loves Obama and a Big Brother government and reach out to them.  Educate and enlighten them.  Teach them to think for them selves.  And watch what happens.  To those who believe in God I say, “get on your knees and fight like a man”.

    Hey Hickory, take a look at what I posted in reply to Cameron’s reply to my reply… ok you get what I mean.  There is something you can do and every one else that will make a real genuine difference.  It will cause real change, and it doesn’t involve any money for anyone.  I’m talking about action, real action.  If you have another good idea for action let me know.  I’d be glad to hear it.  Have a good one.

    They do it because we let them do it.  And we let them do it for so long they actually believe that it is their ‘right’ to own our children.  For the good of society….. an all the garbage.  They do it because Americans are more content to be sucked into reality TV shows on flat screens and have been conditioned to just accept what the man in the white coat says  (if any one doesn’t know what that means just type ‘Milgram’ in a search engine and read what comes up)  It is time to stand up, say ‘NO!’ and then give a better solution than the garbage they have made of society in the absence of real men and women running our own lives.

    CoLady, I ‘feel your pain’.  the reason that this insanity exists is that the destroyers of our society and freedom have made it a crime to discipline our children.  Schools even teach your children and grand children to ‘report’ parents or grand parents who discipline them.  When I was in Junior High in the early 70′s, if I had done what those three had done, my Dad, who I loved and respected, would have wailed my back side with his belt.  I knew better than to harm others.  No cops, no school boards or courts or anything else.  And if the cops had picked me up, I would have begged them to take me to Juvie-hall.  I knew what waited for me at home if I crossed certain lines.  We have given away our roles as parents and educators of our children.  Schools were only meant to impart knowledge.  Education about life comes from home.  this is one of the main reasons our crippled society is approaching terminal.  I love my Dad and honor his memory.  I learned early in life that I could both love and fear him.  And all these years later, when my Mom who is still alive asks me to do something I still say ‘Yes Ma’am’ and do it.  Because my Dad loved me enough to be hard when needed.  One of the many changes we need to make in this broken world; teach children to fear doing wrong while still knowing the love of parents.

    Another case of the PC liberal going amok.  Its time the citizens (voter) slam the door on these social morons and kick them off the Board.  The problem is that in most elections most people don’t even know the backgrounds or policies of the local school board representatives tha tthey elect.  Its time for a change all across the country.  Its time to vote all incumbants off school boards.  Most are products of the “system” and are former teachers and principles.  School boards should be made up of parents and members of the community that are not directly affiliated with the schools.  School boards are supposed to protect the rights of parents and students but instead they have become part of the problem withthe public scholl systems around the country.   The next election get informed.  Find out which ones are the incumbants and vote for their opponent.  Find out their backgrounds and if they had anything to do with education, vote for their opponent.  The only way to clanup the cesspool of public education is to clean house at the school board level first.

    I still say it’s understandable about how the kid shouldn’t have had the gun on him. Even if it was a toy gun, when it’s during school hours even a front yard near a bus stop is school property. For decades there have been kids suspended for having snowball fights near or at bus stops. Especially if the bus get hit. What isn’t understandable is how a neighbor called the cops for being uncomfortable seeing the kid playing with the toy.Or why the suspension was so long. That’s more like an expulsion or something. Or why the reason the kid was suspended is so different from what the story was on Tueday. Someone got wires crossed somewhere. It’s sort of like how when a couple years back the Cambridge police tried stopping Professor Gates from going into his own house. You know what, though? Even though the gun story all sounds rather goofy and dumb it’s nice there are neighbors who watch out for each other instead of just letting things slide by..

    Read the leter. Aparently the boy had a history that led up to and in adition to. However, the “assult” was a civic/criminal matter. Not a school one. The schools job is not to enforce law. They enforce rules that govern schools and related things. This is not related. How do we look at cyberbullying? If done at home, can it be dealt with at school, like the Utah high school football team? If this was two or three kids shooting eachother, no grounds. But if this was considered bullying of other students? If we want the schools and govenment out of our homes, dont inflict your homes or yards on others. Common sence.. and for note, a pellet gun kills. An airsoft gun is for a purpose not deadly in any instace I have heard of. Yes it stings, but so does getting flipped with a rubber band and getting an injection at the doctor. Intentional assult is one thing, this is modern day “kids” playing with modern day “pea shooters”. Yes they too are banned in school. But where were the parents in all this? And if my kid had been disiplined by the school like this kid, he would have had his fun and his airsoft gun taken long ago. Parents, disipline your kids so the schools and government dont have to. Quit shooting yourself in the foot. (Pun intended.)

    So let me get this straight, this didn’t occur on or near school grounds but at the child’s own home?!! This then makes it non of the Schools or School boards Business!! Parents “YOU” need to take your schools back from the Left Wing Progressive Idiots and put GOD back in the schools. We used to teach Firearm Safety in our schools and we didn’t have all of these Mass school shootings like we do now. Instead we have kids being force fed Medication to control what a simple butt whooping would handle and if the parents refuse to medicate their kids the kids get removed from the home by CPS. This is a Wussing  of our kids by the Progressives who as the article stated do not belong to us Parents any longer, which leaves you with 2 choices either Home School or Private School that is the only way to keep your kids safe from these loonies.

    SINCE WHEN DOES THE ENTIRE TOWN FALL UNDER SCHOOL LAW / RULE. THE SCHOOL BOARD HAS COMMITED CRIMES , NO TRAIL, JUST GUILTY. AND WHO WAS THE MORON THAT CALLED 911? SHOULD THEY BE CHARGED WITH MAKING A FALSE 911 CALL OR CHARGED WITH STEPPING ON THE TOES OF THE SCHOOL BOARD RULE OVER THE WHOLE TOWN.

    Hi Cam.  and everyone else  
    Is this the time when we begin taking care of our own, giving back a bit instead of being so concerned about the next new device….
    fight yeah maaybe, how about wising up and saying NO,  I don’t need this newest app, phone, whatever ….  I see america becoming a bunch of brain addled sheep hiding from the real world.
    I see a real need in “real” “normal” people helping others and fostering a helpful vibe I guess….to unite us all as Americans so when the craziness begins we all will be connected and have each others backs…..just my thoughts…..

    Since the statement from the school is shown in fine print, I wonder how many bothered to read it?   I am not siding with the school when I post this excerpt from the statement.  I am merely showing what I consider to be a crucial part to be considered when we form our opinions.  Assuming this part of the statement is true, would this information modify your opinion of the situation?
    =============
    “While the school system does not routinely discuss student discipline, because Ms. Caraballo signed a waiver and chose to make this a public conversation, we can share that this is not Khalid Caraballo’s first disciplinary infraction.  He has been disciplined six times in less than 18 months for increasingly aggressive behavior including harassment, bullying and fighting that resulted in injuries.
    Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt in this latest incident, they could have been.  Had a child been injured either by a weapon or as a result of fleeing from the scene, the school may have been the subject of a different kind of news story;one that included accusation of turning a blind eye toward student safety.  We hope that people will look beyond sensational media reports and recognize that fact. “

    Virginia Beach is one of the most conservative cities/counties in Virginia. If this kid got in any trouble in the future Beck would have been screaming about how this kid wasn’t punished for his past actions… I like the idea of some of the comments to get rid of this school board and getting some liberals on the board. Right now it is dominated by conservatives.
