The Janesville School District confirms the incident occurs, but can't release any disciplinary actions due to privacy concerns.Okay, lets assume there were other behaviors involved that lead to the suspension. I would hope there would be, because I would like to think that a speech about non-conformity involving non-conforming behaviors would be appropriate and covered by some semblence of free speech.
The Janesville Gazette reports the student was suspended and required to undergo a psychological evaluation before he could return to school.
Parker Principal Dale Carlson says the student was not disciplined just for ripping up the Bible. "There were other behaviors that came to our attention from the classroom."
Anyhow, the reaction to some extent is predictable. But if this were a Koran, a death warrent by some Islamic kook would have already been issued for the boy. At least in America, you can rip up a Bible and only get sentenced to see a shrink.
