The pd keeps getting labeled as a product of liberal tng folly but it's very conservative an ideal isn't it?
I just read a discussion on that at a liberal board. There were a handful that applauded it. I doubt a single conservative does. Personally as someone who has been a conservative but now holds some liberal views, I have zero tolerance for zero-tolerance policies.
off-topic, but yeah, zero-tolerance policies have actually been shown by studies to be ineffective and actually counter-productive. What they're good at is appeasing certain adults by making it seem like "something" is being done, even if it's something stupid and harmful.
