Submission + - Student charged for bringing tool into high school 8

sm62704 (mcgrew) writes: "The Chicago Tribune (bugmenot required) and Belleville News Democrat are reporting on the plight of Christopher Berger, an honor student at Grayslake Central High School, a choir singer, as well as a former football player who spends half the day training to be a firefighter.

He was arrested for "reckless conduct" for bringing a tool to school; a Totes outdoor multi-tool flashlight, which has (gasp) a two inch blade.

What would they do to a kid who brought a balloon full of hydrogen to school, like I did when I was in the 7th grade? I'm sure glad I'm a geezer!"
