Public school gone crazy: flashing sugar = felony?

"Boy charged with felony for carrying sugar" -- granted, he had powdered sugar and joked that they were cocaine. But still, how crazy can you get? You can be arrested for joking about sugar being cocaine? Zero tolerance gone too far.

Almost as bad as getting kicked out of kindergarten for turning fingers into fake guns.

What is the message of schools? Goofing off is evil? Has public school turned into mental prison?
