Apparently, the teacher thought it was loaded.
From Fox News.
A central Ohio principal says she suspended a 10-year-old boy from school for three days for pretending his finger was a gun and pointing it at another student’s head.
The boy’s father says he thinks it’s the adults who are acting childish after the boy was suspended from Devonshire Alternative Elementary School in Columbus last week.
The fifth-grader said he was “just playing around.” But district spokesman Jeff Warner tells The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1jO1rL7 ) that Devonshire Principal Patricia Price has warned students about pretend gun play numerous times this year, and everyone should know the rules by now.
Warner says the boy put his finger to the side of the other student’s head and pretended to shoot “kind of execution style.”
The boy’s father says the suspension is overboard.
This is just another episode in the long list of moronic decisions made by school officials in this country.
A kid in Virginia Beach was suspended for playing with an airsoft gun toy by his bus stop.
Children who have cupcakes decorated with toy Soldiers, shape a Pop-Tart into a gun, play “Rescue the World” by throwing a fake grenade at “evil forces”, point a Hello Kitty bubble gun at a classmate, play with water pistols, or make a gun gesture with their little hands, are considered armed and dangerous.
Out of control paranoid zealots that have taken over the American school system and law enforcement. They are incapable of making reasoned, common sense decisions.
But pushing radical leftwing propaganda, taking away a child’s homemade lunch, teaching the art of “fisting”, sexual positions, porn stars and bestiality as part of “sex education”, and the indoctrination of Islamofascism, are all part of academic life in American schools.
Attention parents: The State knows how to raise your children better than you, and don’t you forget it.
