More Zero Tolerance Idiocy

Have the school administrators responsible for this idiocy gotten around to blaming their stupid, lazy actions on lawyers, rather than simply admitting that 'zero tolerance' policies are about avoiding responsibility and accountability for their actions?
Alexa is still suspended from school, her mother said. She and her mom went to family court on Tuesday, where Alexa was assigned eight hours of community service, a book report and an essay on what she learned from the experience.

Alexa Gonzalez no longer faces a suspension for scribbling with a lime green marker, but principal Marilyn Grant told her mother, that agency policy dictated that she calls the cops.
An essay....
"I learned that my Spanish teacher would rather pull a power play than give a student a warning and a bottle of Windex, that my principal is a lazy, officious woman who avoids any application of common sense by pointing to the rule book, and that rather than arresting the idiotic school teachers and administrators who drag them into minor issues that should be resolved within the four walls of the school, some police will happily handcuff and frighten little girls."
Really, though, a last lesson for the girl: this is no time for honesty.
