He told the Tribune that throwing away the students’ lunches could have been easily prevented, but did not say it was a mistake.

What the hell is wrong with people??? You are going to deny a child food…really???
That Louise gif is appropriate.
People out there seriously do not care about others. No one with any sort of heart or conscience can look at a child and literally take food out of their mouths. WTF? Who does that? You’re gonna see a child go hungry over a few dollars? Dude, if they can’t afford to pay you, likely they’re having trouble feeding those same kids. The school lunch might be the only meal they get.
Some people have no souls.
And to throw good food away when there are hungry kids right in front of you!!! How do you even stand there talking about “it’s not a mistake.” Like he doesn’t even fathom the fuckery of the situation. It’s absolutely a mistake, asshole. A mistake that you were born without an ounce of compassion or decency.
YOU THREW IT AWAY! WHY NOT LET THEM KEEP IT! WHAT THE FUCK!
the american way
And I bet these fucks would have the nerve to say to other kids
"REMEMBER KIDS, DON’T YOU DARE WASTE YOUR PRECIOUS FOOD, EAT UP NOW!"

My teacher told me about this in high school. As humans we have a natural thirst for knowledge. While naturally kids did their own thing for the first few weeks they eventually started going to class. It teaches them to want to go to class. You’re not forced to learn and because of that you want to learn.
He was on the right track.
