But then you have issues arise like when my brother was threatened at lunch that if he came out for recess some kid and his friends were going to beat him up. So my brother took a spork from lunch out to recess with him and when the kid got in his face, my brother stabbed him in the face a bunch of times with it. What if my crazy brother had a butter knife instead of a plastic fork?
Sure, not everyone is crazy like the 5th grade version of my brother, but some of them are, especially under stress and fear.
