Student Suspended from School for Saving Classmate's Life; School Says it Does Not "Condone Heroics"
A Canadian student in Calgary has been suspended for saving the life of a classmate from a knife-wielding bully, according to the National Post.

13-year-old Briar MacLean stepped in between an assailant, whose name has not been released, who was brandishing a knife while attacking another student. MacLean pushed the attacker away, and the bully was subdued.

MacLean was thanked by the victim; the young man then went about his day at school. However, several periods later, according to both Briar and the school, he "got called to the office and... wasn’t able to leave until the end of the day.” He received the equivalent of in-school suspension.

The reason? A teacher had seen what MacLean had done, told the principle, who then phoned the police... on Briar. The police then searched the young man's locker and he was asked for a statement.

Briar's mother, Leah O’Donnell, recalled asking the teacher who reported her son about the incident: “I asked: ‘In the time it would have taken him to go get a teacher, could that kid’s throat have been slit?’ She said yes, but that’s beside the point. That we ‘don’t condone heroics in this school.’ ”
