The policy was a success, but the student (nearly) died

Officials in a Florida school confiscated a boy’s asthma inhaler because he didn’t have the right form for it. Then, when he had an asthma attack, they locked him in a room and left him to die. (Fortunately, he survived.)

Getting fired is too good for these people. They need to go to prison.

Not that anyone is getting fired. On the contrary:

Volusia County School officials stand by a Deltona High School nurse’s decision to refuse a student his inhaler during an asthma attack, citing a lack of a parent’s signature on a medical release form.

That’s the real outrage in this story. The school took his medicine and left him to die, and with the full benefit of hindsight, the district is standing by them.

We have a government so concerned by its own made-up procedures that they prefer to kill children than violate them.
