And what would precipitate such a serious penalty on a little girl?
According to WFTV, she brought a piece of steak in her lunch bag... and, a knife to cut the steak.
School officials saw her cutting the steak and immediately took the knife from her.
The girl explained that she had brought the knife before with no problem and she had not threatened anyone with it.
Maybe in the future her parents will slice her steak for her. Then again, a 5th grader who eats steak for lunch? Nice family! I was lucky to get peanut brrrr.
As Yakov Smirnoff would say...
What a country!
