Posted on 08/28/2012 2:23:16 PM PDT by lowbridge
A deaf 3-year-old from Nebraska is being asked by the school district to change his name, his family alleges, because the way he refers to himself in sign language resembles weapons.
Apparently the Grand Island school district has a policy that prevents students from bringing any instrument that looks like a weapon to school, and now hands can be considered instruments.
Anybody that I have talked to thinks this is absolutely ridiculous. This is not threatening in any way, Hunter Spanjers grandmother Janet Logue said.
Brian Spanjer, the boys father, added: Its a symbol. Its an actual sign, a registered sign, through S.E.E. [Signing Exact English]
Hunter signs his name by crossing his middle and index fingers leaving his thumbs up and then wagging his hands.

Whoa. My name in its original language means something to cut off the heads of stupid people.
Boy have these “administrators” devolved.
Please check your hands at the door.
Tell the school officials to shove their suggestion up their collective smelly Obamas.
My grandson’s name is HUNTER, and if someone said that to him I’d probably be in jail for assault!............(I’m nearly DEAF myself).......
Employees of the public school system have become our semi-official repository for the mentally disturbed much the way asylums used to be in ages past.
That’s a nice looking fully automatic 12-gauge AK-47 assault pistol. It looks just like a hand sign. I’m traumatized just looking at it!
Good thing the boy’s last name isn’t Gunn or Speer.
Too bad if they don't like it. That's the child's name. Deal with it.
Who do these people think they are to even suggest this nonsense? Parents - not the teachers union - name their children.
So we’ve become Europe, is that it? I graduated in 1978. I recall taking my rifle and shotgun to school so that I could hunt on the way home. I suppose that’d make their heads explode. And I was next door, in Iowa!!
I have a sign for the school board:
It's possible, but it sometimes requires some tar and feathers.
Have any kids been kicked out of school for using sign language that “resembles” gang signs?
OK I need names and a plane ticket cause I just need to bitch slap every idiot involved with this decision!
What if your name is Gunn, Colt, Cannon, Archer, Knight, Ruger, Smith, Wesson, Glock?
Were he my son, I’d have him adopt a very simple, one fingered sign for a new name! One to be used at school for school administrators exclusively!
Oh no, it’s “He who must not be named”
Could be worse, his name could have been, “The Shocker”.
Ron “Tater Salad” White. Funny guy. Texan.
Hey Teach, Read my lips.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?
At one time not so long ago someone suggesting this would be taken away by the men in white coats
Clothes can actually BE weapons. You can suffocate somebody with them. Or strangle somebody with the pants legs! The kids ought to be going to school naked.
And what about a lunchbox! Pencils! You can even hit somebody over the head with a desk if you're strong enough.
I'd say put the kids in straightjackets, but they could loop the arms over somebody's head.
Maybe we could just put the school officials in straightjackets.
” OK I need names and a plane ticket cause I just need to bitch slap every idiot involved with this decision!”
And slip the kid a gun. He is surrounded by lunatics who
may be dangerous.
Are you sure you don’t mean Ron White?
Sure, double barrels are always twisted around each other.
God’s way of telling us to HOME SCHOOL.
You will have this sort of stupidity when you have a single payer socialized school industry.
“A deaf 3-year-old from Nebraska...”
This is NEBRASKA, where they vote 70/30 Republican for president. This state is more conservative than TEXAS!!!
Anyone that STILL think that they have some kind of ‘control’ over their ‘wonderful’ public schools (as a LOT of conservatives claim) needs to watch this clip.
AGAIN - this is NEBRASKA, it is NOT New York or California.
If ANYTHING proves that conservatives (or even just plain Americans) are TOTALLY LOCKED out of control of public schools, this article is it.
If this were my kid and the school did this to me, I’d be suing the school for BIG discrimination. I would make the biggest stink about it too, go on every talk show, tell every newspaper, show this school for the embarrassment that it is. Make them sorry they even THOUGHT of this insane “rule”.
Thanks lowbridge. Sorry, that’s just our policy. /s
Why are they locking up veterans in mental hospital, when obviously the bulk of the looney tooners run the school systems.
If the kid’s name was not Hunter, then this would not be an issue. That is what the real problem is!
the loons have taken over, surely.
Think about this, the elft wants special rights for homosexuals because they like to get off in unnatural ways.
They fight and sue vioter ID laws because they want illegals but have no clue about the word illegal so they cahnge it to undocumentated.
We have this issue
We have schools who think not telling parents when underage kids kill their baby is alright, ignoring the word underage as well.
A DOJ which sues states which enforces laws and ignores places which breaks the laws.
They say guns kill but can;t understand guns have a trigger which is pulled by someone
The list is endless but this crap of not letting kids play with guns, or mention guns in school, or even play cops and robbers or cowboy or indians is dwn right stupid
What is even scary is that whilst we have loons saying all of this we also have a media which covers for them and millions who just go along with this agenda and never once thinking about what they support or they put emotion into this
I believe, by extension, that the symbols, “W-E-A-P-O-N”, taken together, may also make one think of a weapon, and should likewise be banned.
