Another good quote on zero tolerance

"There is little evidence that zero tolerance produces safety. Instead, it strips away the safeguards of a peaceful society: compassion, due process, good will, presumption of innocence, tolerance, discretion, humor ... It victimizes the most vulnerable citizens: children."
-- Wendy McElroy for Fox News, 25 Nov 2003

Again, I quote Jesse Jackson, who called zero tolerance "zero thought", and Dennis Miller, who called it "zero intelligence". And I encourage its proponents to get a clue, or to quote Jamie Zawinski, "choke on a bucket of cocks."
