To be fair, the things Martin has been suspended for are rather minor. I had a friend in HS over 30 years ago who was suspended for worse. Today he is a degreed professional and a VP at a medical equipment company.
It was the report of the jewelry that caught my attention.
no matter what he did to get suspended he should have been grounded and certainly not be allowed to roam about or hang out in a different neighborhood or a different city or even state.
If my kids were ever suspended , hell if they ever got into trouble at school they know they’d be grounded for some time.
