    And we all know for sure that you cannot get real light green zombie guns don't we.
    But, you can get real light green zombie knives.
    Just why teachers don't know this is beyond me.

    Exactly. If a teacher sees that and follows her school's guidelines, and the school sends a cop for a check, it could very well save a student's life. Even if she is 90% sure that a green gun with zombies on it is fake.

    And saving a student's life is something that good teachers will often try to do, even if it offends the parents.

    When you posted a query into who did not make a stupid decision, deflecting rather than answering the question you were asked, the answer wasn't you.

    Everybody has been polite here, so far. Count your blessings - it's not the first time.

    That would be contrary to policy, rule, and law.
    There is no such thing as a gun or imitation gun that has been "cleared".
    (Poe's Law called)

    It would be interesting to see a school forbid its students from carrying anything that a police officer has taken for a weapon and used as a reason to shoot somebody. That would be an honest safeguard if its students's lives.

    Next time kid thinks about playing with a toy gun in front of his class - he will think twice.

    "Elliott’s son, Isaiah, was later suspended for five days and now has a record with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and a mark on his school disciplinary paperwork saying he brought a 'facsimile of a firearm to school' — even though he was in his own home doing a virtual class. The 'gun' was obviously a toy, painted black and green with 'Zombie Hunter' on the side."​

    Well, from a perspective outside the mechanistic-like awareness of the protocol which implemented this, it's probably not a good or just thing for an ADHD kid who was at home to be exaggeratedly documented like that (for an evaluating future to find).

    Employees obeying "systemic procedure" was sort of like AI behavior long before semi-competent artificial intelligence was invented. In terms of its commonsense shortcomings and short-circuiting the humans manipulated by the management "algorithm" to function and make decisions themselves like reality-impaired robots.

    Technocrats know what they are doing but don't know what they aren't doing.
    Bureaucrats know what they aren't doing but don't know what they are doing.
