Kyle Robertson, 16, was suspended from school because his eyes were red and watery.
On the basis of this fact alone, they decided he had been smoking pot.
No other reasons for bloodshot eyes were considered, like the fact that Kyle’s father had been stabbed to death two days earlier, and he had been crying. He could have stayed home, but wanted to be at school with his friends.
Administrators, after talking with his mother and learning the situation, still required her to take him to get a drug test within two hours and show a copy of negative test results, before they’d let him back in school.
