Melody Valentin, a fifth-grader in Philadelphia, Penn., was reportedly searched in front of her class and called a murderer for having a piece of paper that looked like a gun, The Blaze reported Thursday.
According to Dianna Kelly, the girl's mother, her grandfather made the "gun" for her the previous day using a folded piece of paper with a corner torn out of it.
When the girl went to throw the piece of paper away, a boy in her class saw it and called school administrators.
"He yelled at me and said I shouldn't have brought the gun to school and I kept telling him it was a paper gun but he wouldn't listen," she said.
Kelly said the school staff searched her in the presence of her classmates and Valentin said she was scolded in front of the class.
The Blaze reported that the school administrator allegedly threatened to have her arrested, while other students called her a murderer.
Kelly, who is furious about the incident, has kept her daughter out of the class to avoid further harassment and says she wants her daughter out of the school permanently.
Why did he threaten my daughter?" she asked. "Why did you stand over my daughter and tell her that you should call the cops on her? You can be arrested? Why were you trying to scare her?
Calls to the school district were not returned...

We get more like Nazi Germany every day, with fellow classmates pimping on their friends.
For once in my life, I’d like to be a lawyer.
A mean, nasty, brilliant lawyer.
So that I could take every penny from the Superintendent, principal, and teachers involved in this travesty.
I want to see them in ragged clothes, hanging around the town square in the cold, begging for drugs.
Sounds like this young fella would fit right into the Hitle- Jungend.
so you were the reported ‘guy in camo in the woods’ !
screen actor’s guild member,too ? /sarc
Yet, people continue to believe THEIR school/teacher/etc. can do no harm.
More evidence to keep one’s brood out of the gov’t indoctrination centers known as ‘schools’
I’m ticked off as it is Gov. Scott, here in FL, is giving the teachers union a nice raise....no matter nobody ELSE is making any extra scratch, let alone HAVE jobs; and the unions are still upset about SOMETHING or the other. *spit*
Just another illustration of how far this idiocy and paranoia has gone. I used to, like you, have shotguns in my trunk so I could go hunting after school. This country has gone absolutely nuts!
I think this is another result of 24 hour news stations. They generate topics and feed the engine of intensity until people become absolutely insane.The media has succeeded in removing comon sense from people and allowing them to reach their own conclusins through everyday conversation and debate. We have become a nation of lemmings !
Indoctrination is working well. It conditions them to be good little socialists.
When they become adults they bow to their masters and beg for the crumbs they give them. In other words, future democrat voters.
Child abuse is subjecting your kids to nimrods with teaching degrees. Give them free access to your beloved offspring for 12 straight years and what do you think you are going to get?
Get your kids out of public school. Maybe someday we’ll reform them and rebuild them but your kids and grandkids only have now.
I used to take shooting lessons at school when I was in junior high. They had an indoor shooting range set up for high school ROTC but the shooting lessons were for everyone.
They were nice match rifles.
And like you, my dad carried his gun to school (kept it in the cloak room) so he could hunt before and after class.
Same here. When I was in high school back in the woods of Missouri, we were allowed to have our deer hunting rifles in our trucks, as long as they were visible (gun rack in window, on dash), the chamber locked open, and truck locked. The school had a bus driver, who double security guard during sporting events, watch the parking lot during deer season.
Turning the Kiddies into what they want.
We had rifles at YMCA camp. All the 8 year olds and above shot.
Then we headed to the archery range.
Training the youth that their first duty is to the state. My classmates would have taken a paddling before ratting on me, and those were the ones that didn’t like me.
that would be fifth grade girl:
These people are such cowards, taking out their hatred of gun owners on little kids. Let them confront someone with a real gun in the same way. Then I’ll be impressed with their self-righteous zeal.
Children should not be taught, under the authority of or left alone with retards.
