Use judgment, not zero tolerance

Zero tolerance may be appropriate in a rare situation where an organization is forced to put someone in charge who does not have the education, experience or intelligence to make a value judgment.

In the cast of David Schaffner, the young man who mistakenly took a knife to a football game, I have to believe someone in the Fox Chapel Area School District has the qualifications to evaluate the student's actions and make an intelligent decision that is fair to both the school and the student.

The district's actions made the school's administration look foolish and incompetent.
