In the news today it was announced that a 13 year old boy has been given permission to wear "a stab-proof vest" when he goes to school, for fear of being attacked by a fellow schoolboy - because of a quarrel over a GIRL.
Isn't anyone warning the other guy that if he does something as stupid as stabs another person, he will get his ass thrown in jail? No! Instead they leave him to it, give his intended victim a stabproof vest, and hope for the best.
Also in the news, a headmaster has banned snowball fights and warned of punishment if you throw a snowball at another person "without his permission", because "being hit by a snowbally unexpectedly can be frightening and painful".
