Skip to comments.8-Year-Old Florida Boy Suspended for Making Gun Shape With Fingers: ‘It Was a Game’
Posted on 10/01/2013 1:32:36 PM PDT by lowbridge
A pretend game of cops and robbers landed a Florida elementary school boy with a very real suspension after he made a pretend gun with his thumb and index finger.
The mother of 8-year-old Jordan Bennett said her son was only playing with his friend at Harmony Community School in St. Cloud. She fears his one-day suspension, which was handed down Friday, wrongly labels Jordan as a violent person.
There was nothing in his hand. He used his thumb and index finger, Bonnie Bennett told WKMG-TV. It was a game. He made no threatening advances or threats to harm anyone. No words were said.
They took a child that has never been in trouble before and went to the extreme, the mother continued. A child that has no history of violence is now classified as a violent offender.
The school, on the other hand, said the game crossed the line established by the districts code of conduct. A school representative told WKMG while they cant give specifics into the incident, it was reviewed and found in violation of school policy. The school did not specify the specific code violation that was grounds for the suspension.

The shame is, it's working.
Gotta learn to do this while wiping the nose.
It’s about terrifying the kid, creating a new sheep, and criminalizing the thought of a gun.
They know what they’re doing, these fascists.
Glad I’m not that young feller. We actually yelled “Bang! Bang!” out loud. I’d be in the SuperMax by now.
What about saying the word “gun” or “bang” out loud?
What about writing the word “gun” on a piece of paper?
He Made a pretend gun with his fingers in school.
I thought this was satire. What has happened to this country?!
In Morgan Hill, California (south of SanFran) two boys were suspended for wearing American Flag t-shirts on cinqo de mayo.
Principal asked them to take off the shirts and when they did not they were sent home and then suspended.
How many of you reading this nonsense would have been allowed to remain in school beyond 5 weeks into the first grade.
School would have been 100% girls only. The USA would have lost WWII because all the young men would have been rejected by the military due to complete illiteracy.
Also millions of we nasty boys carried pocket knives, used to mutilate innocent tree limbs that fell to ground.
Only little white schoolkids. Black thugs playing “Knockout King” game get a pass. It’s only a game, unlike a little white kid making the shape of a gun with his fingers.
We actually played “War” with realistically looking and sounding plastic toy weapons.
It sounded like Bastogne in my neighborhood some afternoons, complete with Oscar worthy dying scenes.
More PC horse sh*t.
This country is so scr*wed.
... watch out if you’re using sign-language and finger-spelling any word with the letter ‘L’ in it.
Yes, it starts with pretend guns. Then it is pretend hand grenades, pretend AK-45s, pretend chemical weapons, and pretend nuclear bombs.
Oh the Huge Manatee!!
Good thing the ever vigilant Government School minders are paying attention to the important stuff... (because they sure are not providing a worthwhile education).
Did his assault hand have high capacity fingers?
Yeah, for all the dalliances with rebellion from the establishment school age kids, including college aged "children," are very pliable and complaint with authority when it comes right down to it. The left knows this too, and that's why infiltrating that institution was so prized-- and now paying off.
You know how cool it is to walk around campus with a Che T-shit on, don't you? Spot the irony.
Did you have the realistic Mattel M-16? That was a lot of fun! And a cap-firing tommy gun?
They know what theyre doing, these fascists.
We ought to see that it creates the opposite reaction--outrage, indignation and righteous anger. Then, they just might call off this sort of stuff. To use a 1942 expression, we need to take these fascists and blister their Axis.
