I hope you aren't supporting such policies.
The zero-tolerance laws are being changed right now across the country.

People should use common sense.

But the old common sense was not good at all. I grew up in the times of old common sense and it was just a set of prejudices and dangerous practices passed off as common sense. I like it much better today for the kids.
