We created this site for three reasons:
1. To document how “Zero Tolerance” laws are being abused in schools all over the country
2. To name names and publicize the identifies of officials who use these so-called laws to abuse students
3. To provide information, help and support to students and their families who are victimized by “Zero Tolerance”
Here is the most important piece of advice we can offer you right now:
Unless they prove otherwise, police, teachers, and school officials are not your friends. A shocking number of them believe it’s OK to ruin your life over nothing just to make a point or advance their professional or political careers.
If you are being accused of anything say nothing. Remain silent.
If you are threatened with arrest say nothing. Remain silent.
If you are arrested say nothing. Remain silent.
This is the very same advice that $1,000-an-hour attorneys give to their billionaire CEO clients when they are accused of wrong doing.
If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for you.
