[Video] Student Suspended for Photo of Gun Set as Computer Desktop Background
According to ABC15.com, a student in Florence, AZ has been suspended because he set a photo of an AK-47 style rifle to be the desktop background on his school issued laptop.
The student was suspended for three days, but that suspension was later reduced.
The student did not feel the image violated the guidelines of usage of the computer, which forbids offensive images.
“This gun wallpaper does not show anything that’s violent. It’s not showing anybody getting shot in any way. It’s just a picture of a gun. It’s nothing — nobody getting shot, nobody getting it pointed at them, it’s nothing,” said the student.
