Child Not Allowed to Sign Name
Eagleyeblog ^ | August 27, 2012 | Bethany Stotts

Posted on 08/28/2012 6:59:15 PM PDT by eagleye85

A deaf three-year-old has been asked not to sign his name at school because it resembles a deadly weapon, according to 1011Now.com. “”It’s his name. It’s not like he’s going to bring a gun to school when he’s three years old,” Dana Schwieger told 1011Now.com.

“Meantime, Hunter’s parents say that by Monday, lawyers from the National Association of the Deaf are likely to weigh in for Hunter’s right to sign his own name.” See the broadcast here: http://www.1011now.com/video?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=7652612.

Well if that’s the case then he should change his name to something like — “Colt”

I was thinking of another sign that only involves one finger...

If the kid was a minority and his name was Fukyu, do you think they would object?

It is a good thing they stopped that kid before he shot someone’s eye out.

Colt is a horse.

Now "Dirk" is a good name for a boy.

I don’t get it.

Does he sign his name ‘Hunter’? Or does he draw a picture of a gun as his name?

Another “zero tolerance” outrage resulting in an innocent child being subjected to a cruel injustice. Click on the keyword “zero tolerance” and you’ll find hundreds of additional examples from all across the country. Why are those who run our public schools—the vast majority of whom hold advanced degrees—so stupid and so impervious to common sense?

If you look at the video, he signs his name with two hands pointing like guns.

Gun Control Nazi nonsense has got to stop. Ridiculous to stop a kid from signing his name because it “looks like a gun”

Although I want limits on lawsuits...but this is one civil rights lawsuit I want to see filed, and won. Just hop this family does not get a Gun Control Nazi judge

Well, if he can’t sign “Hunter” maybe they’ll let him sign his last name, Mr. Twentymillimeterarmorpiercinghighexplosivevulcancannon. Mr. T for short.

The boy’s name in sign language is the sign for the Signing English Exactly word, “run.” I guess the school does not want children to run.

Anyone else notice the tattoo on the boy’s left arm? As is often the case, noting the father’s appearance and the boy’s tattoo, there is likely more to the story.

Didn’t you just answer your own question?
