[Video] 10 Year Old Suspended For Pointing Finger “Like a Gun”
Here we go again, more anti-gun hysteria taking over our schools.
In this case a 10 year old boy has been suspended for pointing his finger like a gun while in school. The suspension is for three days and will follow the boy for the rest of his academic career.
According to The Columbus Dispatch,
A Columbus principal suspended a student for three days last week after the child pointed a “lookalike firearm” at another student in class and pretended to shoot.
The boy’s age? 10. The “level 2 lookalike firearm” cited in his suspension letter? His finger.
“I was just playing around,” said Nathan Entingh, a fifth-grader at Devonshire Alternative Elementary School in a far northern section of the district. “People play around like this a lot at my school.”
…Devonshire Principal Patricia Price has warned students about pretend gun play numerous times this year, and everyone should know the rules by now, district spokesman Jeff Warner said. Nathan put his finger to the side of the other student’s head and pretended to shoot “kind of execution style,” Warner said.
“The kids were told, ‘If you don’t stop doing this type of stuff, there would be consequences,’” Warner said. “It’s just been escalating.” Warnings included three newsletters sent home with kids, he said.
This is pretty much as close as we’ve gotten to suspending children for having an imagination. This is just the latest example of the zero tolerance hysteria which has swept our nation’s schools.
