Stunning development in B'ham schools

Picking a fight in school may now be an electrifiying experience. The Birmingham News reports that Birmingham police patroling city schools may be allowed to wield stun guns (or, more accurately, taser guns) to bring down out-of-control students.

Naturally, this has some "local leaders" in a lather:

Michael Jordan, senior pastor at New Era Baptist Church, said allowing stun guns in the public school furthers the stereotype of inner-city students as dangerous.

And he says this after three separate fights last week at West End High School. This is the same kind of goofy PC logic that allows a group of Syrians to terrify a Northwest Airlines flight while airport security confiscates eyebrow tweezers from 60-year-old grandmothers. (Yes, that actually happened.)
