If everyone can come to some understanding about why the school teachers and administration acted as they did in this case, perhaps you can also offer an explanation for the story Rafi G gave us as to why his sister was suspended for three days for saying she wanted to blow up her school. Too harsh, perhaps?
Since you quoted kmbboots I assume you're referencing her statement that people aren't arrested for things they haven't done (which incidentally hasn't been true since Patriot Act was passed; an entirely relevant point of fact when considering potential bomb-related issues).

However it should be noted that speech counts as "doing something" and certain kinds of speech are illegal. I don't know if three days' suspension is too much for a bomb threat, but some punishment was surely in order if she really said that.
