According to, Actor, entrepreneur, and writer Joseph C. Phillips, best known for his roles as Martin Kendall on “The Cosby Show” and Justus Ward on “General Hospital,” says his son’s school threatened police action after the student showed his friends a picture of his new BB gun. They also reportedly questioned his “mental state.”

According to Phillips, the 15-year-old has been working part time and chose to buy the Airsoft BB gun with his earnings, his dad said, and wanted to show his new purchase to his friends.

Phillips supposedly wasn’t even told about the incident until his son told him several days later.

The school never contacted the parents after confiscating personal property, questioning the boy’s mental state and pulling him out of class.

More zero thought (aka tolerance) at work.

Here is the complete audio of the interview in which Phillips describes the events.
