Another questionable school suspension was decreed in March in Virginia Beach, when a sixth-grader who'd prevented a classmate from intentionally harming himself was punished for her altruism. Adrionna Harris had convinced a boy to hand over a razor blade he was threatening to cut himself with; she immediately discarded it. According to the principal, that transaction meant Harris "possessed" a "dangerous weapon," albeit for a brief time, and she was suspended for 10 days, according to school policy.
