A Child Called “It” by Dave Pelzer is the tragic story of Dave Pelzer’s childhood from ages four to twelve (Pelzer, xi). By defying all odds Dave survived his highly abusive alcoholic mother who referred to him not as a child but as an “it” (Pelzer, 30, 140). From being punched, forced to eat ammonia, and even stabbed, Dave’s story is regarded as one of the worst child abuse cases ever in California history (Pelzer, 3, 74, 87, book blurb). Dave’s mom was not always an abusive witch. According to Dave, “In the years before I was abused, my family was the “Brady Bunch” of the 1960’s” (Pelzer, 17).

A public school cannot suspend a student with no notice or hearing because it infringes on his or her rights. The specific amendments broken by the public school officials are primarily the fifth and sixth. Public schools are not allowed to take away rights and liberties given to the American people.

Since these kids did not cause a disturbance, there was no reason for them to be suspended. The only reason the school suspended the 5 students was from the fear of disturbance from wearing these
Forensic experts presume that Burke, JonBenet’s older brother, who was only nine at the time, killed JonBenet because she took a piece of his pineapple. Burke would have hit JonBenet in the back of the head with some object to knock her out, and then Patsy and john staged the crime because they wouldn’t want anything to happen to him. Back in 2010, burke went on Dr. Phil to be interviewed about his sister, the audience recalled, that burke was smiling when he was asked if he killed his sister, and it creeped them out. Dr. Phil says burke was probably smiling because he is socially awkward and doesn’t work around people. Patsy was also a suspect because the nanny recalled patsy getting really angry at JonBenet for wetting the bed at night.

They all simply seem to be arguing against the Drug Testing for the reason that it is just wrong, and unconstitutional. There is no information leading me to assume that the students had previous problems with drugs, and wanted to avoid the test. The parents must have also played a big part, upset with the whole Drug Testing Policy happening with their children at the school. Majority decision of the Court: The Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision voted that the Drug Testing Policy was in fact, constitutional. The date for the decision was on June 27, 2002.
