Today, we have zero tolerance for drugs, alcohol, weapons and gangs in
school, and zero tolerance for sexual harassment and racial discrimination
in society.

Fine, but who oversees and administers these activities?

None other than law enforcement, government and those groups closely 
associated with them.

Zero tolerance is a popular means to stop repugnant and criminal
activities, but what happens when this same safety net is the cause of new
and more repugnant activities?
