Sacklabs, What i was saying about 4/20 was that crime was happening all over the place and the only thing they do is go after student film makers. Now kids regardless shouldn’t be using drugs are alcohol which is the reason why i am a strong advocate for effective drug education. On the topic about toy guns, this is not the first time that students have filmed with them. With regards to V-Tech if we let that change the way we run about our lives then we have made the recovery worse.

While students may film “outside in Croton all the time without the permits”, something tells me they don’t typically have toy guns when they do so. My guess would be that the fact that it happened on 4/20 signals more towards an understandably heightened level of sensitivity to guns around schools post-Virginia Tech shootings, then it does to your theory that it was done as part of some Croton PD sponsored conspiracy to wreak havoc in response to the international pot smoking holiday.

Yeah Students have filmed outside in Croton all the time without the permits and now they are enforcing the law. April 20th the day that this happened is an international pot smoking holiday and Croton is a heavy pot smoking town. Maybe because we are losing the war on drugs the cops want to feel like they are cracking down on crime so they do this. Of course i investigated more into this matter and found out that the school did not defend the students and yanked the toy gun out of the scene. CHHS has way to much of a censorship problem and alot of the time they are contradictory in there approach. Here are a few examples involving me:

1) At the School talent show i was to perform my song “The Death Of Kevin Davis” which was about how Kevin Davis is Dead because KWilly is alive. The song was clean but the school had to change it where instead of saying “Kevin Davis is now Dead” i said “Kevin Davis is now cut”. I still won the talent show anyways but i will never forget the treatment i got. It was especially hypocritical when they allowed a rock group to sing a song about cutting themselves

2) I wanted to do my CHOOSE project on the ineffectiveness of DARE and what to replace it with. I was told i could not do it on DARE because it is too controversial. This is a subject i am very interesting which i have spoken about at adult meetings where beforehand i was told i should not because it was too controversial. Meanwhile they had no problem with me doing a research paper earlier in the year on the legalization of prostitution. The fact that it is controversial is why it should be address because DARE is not going away unless someone brings it up. (This topic is recent and the debate is ongoing)

What an excellent use of my tax dollars. I’m glad the police are keeping the streets free of dangerous student film makers.
