OCALA, Fla. -- A 10-year old Ocala girl brought her lunch to school and a small kitchen knife to cut it. She now faces a felony charge after being arrested. The school and the sheriff's office disagree on the reason for the arrest.
School officials say the 5th grader was brown-bagging it. She brought a piece of steak for her lunch, but she also brought a steak knife. That's when deputies were called.
It happened in the cafeteria at Sunrise Elementary School. The 10-year-old used the knife to cut the meat.

What the hell. What happened to PB&J for kids sack lunch.
Oh yea and Zero-tolerance does more harm then good.

Sheriff’s just blindly enforce any law...what happened to unjust laws and the duty of LEO to use their brain?
Shhhh, don't mention that! They'll have to give the kids nothing but vitamin-fortified gruel!
It was no more a weapon then a baseball bat used by a baseball team to play baseball.
Both can be pretty deadly if used as a weapon, but if not used that way, they are not in fact weapons.
steak? not fair, my mom never sent me with anything but PB&J.
“What happened to PB&J for kids sack lunch.”
Threat of lawsuits from some students with peanut allergies has banned peanut products from some schools.
That said, What’s wrong with bringing a piece of leftover steak to school for lunch?
How many knives do you have in your school?
This is why public schools should not exist. They hire fools to run them.
I used to think that a good way to bring about the repeal of stupid laws would be to strictly enforce them to create a backlash. Having seen where zero-tolerance is going, I gave up on the notion.
Dozens, and that doesn’t count the ones for knife-throwing class.
K-WHAT? Unbuilt Maui TV station lands questionable call letters

Peanut butter is probably banned due to a student years prior with a food allergy.
