What the hell’s the matter with Maryland?

There’s really no question by now that entirely too many school administrators across America are crazy, drooling morons. However, school administrators in Maryland — and some teachers, and a few students — possess a special, possibly bionic blend of stupidity and lunacy.

Let’s review the indisputable facts. Amazingly, all of these ridiculous incidents occurred in Maryland in the last several months alone.

Just last week, Ellicott City parent Robert Small was violently arrested and charged with two crimes for expressing his frustrations about the implementation of the Common Core at a public forum Thursday night in the suburbs of Baltimore.

On Monday, the Baltimore County state’s attorney’s office took one look at the case against the father of two and promptly dropped all charges. However, the state’s attorney refused to condemn the brutal guard. (RELATED: Charges dropped against arrested dad)

In May, a Calvert County kindergarten boy was suspended from school for 10 days because he showed a friend his menacing, plastic, orange-tipped, cowboy-style cap gun on the way to school. Officials at Dowell Elementary School in the town of Lusby proceeded to question the five-year-old for before calling his mother two hours later. He peed his pants during the inquisition.

Also in May, Stephanie Mikles, a behavioral specialist with the Harford County Schools who works mainly with special needs children, was indicted for allegedly having “sexual intercourse with a dog.” It was a Labrador retriever.

March was particularly loopy month all over Maryland.

In March, St. Mary’s County Public Schools banned hugging and homemade food in public elementary schools for anyone except a parent’s own children. Parents there must also register to enter the playground and can only push their own kids on the swings. School district officials called the draconian regulations necessary to provide a safe environment. (RELATED: Maryland school district outlaws hugging, homemade food, pushing kids on swings)

During the same month, in Rockville, a press office staffer for Vice President Joe Biden forced a credentialed reporter from the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism to delete photos taken Tuesday at an event related to — wait for it — domestic violence.
