Michael Moore recently said that the only reason white people are buying a bunch of guns in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting is that theyre fearful. Afraid of black people specifically. He said, Calm down, white people, and put away your guns. So if were all buying guns and ammo out of fear of the black man, what emotion would cause this idiocy: a 6-year-old boy was suspended from school for making his hand in the shape of a gun and pretend shooting it, saying, Pow, as it was pointed at a fellow student. Were school officials actually scared that a bullet was going to come out of the childs index finger and kill his classmate? So, its not fear thats driving this; its pure stupidity.
Renee Garraway, the Assistant Principal in this Montgomery County, Maryland school, sent a letter home with the 6-year-old. Her letter, addressing the childs parents, stated in part that your son was involved in a serious incident. [He] threatened to shoot a student. He was spoken to earlier today about a similar incident. He threatened to shoot a student? Are they kidding? He was probably playing a version of Cops and Robbers. Hes a little boy. At one time, such behavior was considered normal for little boys. Nowadays with the abject paranoia of the left, this childs configuring his fingers in the shape of a gun is worthy of suspension.
And because of the schools no tolerance policy and ridiculous overreaction, the parents have had to retain an attorney, Robin Ficker. Ficker pointed out that five years from now when someone at Montgomery County looks at [the child's] permanent record, theyre going to see that he threatened to shoot another student.
This is similar to another recent incident where a 3-year-old deaf student was told he had to change his sign language name because the hand gestures for the name Hunter resembled guns, much like the 6-year-olds gun above being used to shoot a fellow student.
Government schools are proving themselves to be dangerous, mentally, emotionally and physically. Theyre also run by imbeciles who think theyre doing society a favor by removing the kids with behavior problems such as the child who was playing Cops and Robbers. Shutting down these government schools would do society a much greater favor.
Thanks for the ping!
Thanks, VeniVidiVici! I had a gut feeling it was Spring but never heard of the school before.
