48. This is the weapon

Heck there's combs out there that would make better weapons than this. This is idiotic but I think it's also because of the school district that is heavily African-American with violence in the community and the student is African-American.

BTW, this is the PA school district that Ricky Santorum claimed as his residence but cheated out of school funds by enrolling his kids who lived in VA in cyber school that Penn Hills had to pay for until little Ricky got caught.
