This was the punishment that this six year old boy received.
His mother was late picking him up from school due to a problem with her car, which did not start.

WHY would a school do this to a child? He had nothing to do with his mother's car!!!
This happens all the time, people blaming others for things they have no control of. Why is it easier to put the blame on the person who has done nothing?
This is an unfortunate side effect of the zero-tolerance rules in schools today. The school officials just punish kids without checking their personal situation. This unfortunately catches some good kids and throws them in with the genuine trouble makers.
How could any principal think this wouldn't be destructive to this child? I could see doing this for high school students who are more in control of themselves, but an elementary school? This is basically BULLING, and that should have absolutely no tolerance in any situation.
Zero tolerance is a horrible rule and makes for lazy administrators and about avoiding lawsuits.
The community came together and donated a van to the family.
This article supposedly went viral in Facebook and was on ABC news. Since I am not on facebook and don't watch the news some of you may know about this already.
