A trained attack Tyrannosaurus? Ummm ... NO.

Ummmm ... yeah, because this is productive use of the cop's time.
District spokesman Randy Wall said ... "We're always going to do something to make sure the child understands the seriousness of having something that could potentially harm another student, but we're going to be reasonable..."
