Posted on 01/02/2013 4:49:27 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
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.
Holy paranoid Batman......
Maryland "Freak State" PING!
Pull your kids out.
Nanny State PING!
The last few seconds are priceless!
I hope he changed his name from Hunter to (redacted, but involving a different finger).
Amen to that! I couldn't agree more.
Articles that explain how modern liberals suffer from a mental disorder.
If he said he was just singing the Black-Eyed Peas’s “Boom Boom Pow” would that get him off the hook or would he get two more suspensions?
Their permanent records must be a lot more comprehensive than mine, I got a copy of mine a few years ago and all it contained was my grades, attendance and ACT/SAT scores (And believe me I got in trouble more than a couple times...)
No.....calling these droolers "imbeciles" gives imbeciles a bad name.
The parent need to sue the school system and this principal immediately for defamation of character, a violation of the child's 1st amendment rights, false accusation, and causing mental anguish. I'd open the suit at $20 million. The only way to stop these fascists is to hit them financially. They seem to be slow learners, so it will likely take quite a few such suites.
“Theyre also run by imbeciles who think theyre doing society a favor...
No.....calling these droolers “imbeciles” gives imbeciles a bad name’”
These imbeciles that run the government schools, the same kind of imbeciles will now run our healthcare with Obamacare.
The government schools and Obamacare should be abolished. Get your kids out of government schools.
It’ll be a wonder if we have any police officers or military in 10-15 years without cops and robber games and cowboy and indian games.
Public school is child abuse.
We conservatives can have fun by dropping a box of cap guns with rolls of caps somewhere in the local elementary school playground late at night. While the entire police force is at the school the next day locking the place down because kids are playing with inanimate objects that can cause no harm to anybody, the roads will be free of cops for drag races.
Oh My God! These people are insane! When I was a child we played Army and Cowboys and Indians in school and yelled pow, bang and boom and it was considered NORMAL behavior. What are we allowing these totalitarian mush brained pseudo intellectuals to turn our children into. We need less of these progressive so called teachers interacting with our children more old fashioned play. It seems to me that we had less problems before we allowed these people to neuter our young boys.
Just because someone works at a school doesn’t mean that they are not idiots.......
Exactly my thoughts on the neutering of boys.
Wait until a gay couple’s son does the same thing, haa!
That includes conservative parents.
Not pointing any fingers....
I was the Indian, hiding in the weeds quietly talking into my fist and calling in and adjusting an imaginary artillery fire mission on you cowboys.
You make me smile more than anybody since Lucy. (Personal acquaintances excepted.)
You guys had arty?
Yep. While saving us trillions of dollars.
No such thing.
I wish it named the elementary school. Does it surprise you in the least?
I like the way you think :-)
“Their permanent records must be a lot more comprehensive than mine”.
Oh, they are. There are two school records, by the way. The main one and the “secret” one. Seriously. One is for the viewing if requested by parents and there is always a second one that includes lists of infractions etc... My one girlfriend requested both when her daughter got into trouble. They were ticked that she knew about the other one (she has a friend in the school system).
On another note, there is now a Montgomery County “grading system” for behaviors. When a child misbehaves, it is referred to as “Anarchy” and they are given a punishment/calmed down to level D (Demure). How would I know this? Well, lil’ Miss 6 year old got into trouble for pushing a girl when the girl called her “stupid, dumb” and refused to let her into the computer lab. The girl was not injured, didn’t fall.. the “bad” behavior = the pushing. I get a call from her teacher that said she was at the “Anarchy level” but is now “Demure”. Anarchy? I asked, “Is she throwing molotov cocktails? Is she overturning cars in the lot? Is the school currently on fire”. The teacher said, “I don’t make up the grading system... I know it is out there”. Crazy, ain’t it?!
These kids better watch out. Next thing we know, their hands will be tattooed with serial numbers. Or trigger locks will be mandatory. If muzzies run the schools, there will be confiscation.
Liberals go crazy when anyone THINKS of a gun. They don’t care about who gets killed or not. They are passionate about controlling peoples’ thoughts! Thinking about a gun is the worse evil in the world!
See, there's a bunch of questions my parents wouldn't have wanted to ask for fear of the answers.
I went by the rule "accuse me, and I'll do it". May as well be hanged for a goat as a sheep.
I'm sure that genetic trait still exists in the wild.
“... there’s a bunch of questions my parents wouldn’t have wanted to as for fear of the answers”.
LOL!! She is actually a very well behaved girl and I am sorry to say we didn’t really lower the boom on this one. Not that we let our kids run wild but after the whole “anarchy” thing... I was so ticked at the stupidity of the school system that the pushing incident got only a “next time.. walk around the little brat”. (fortunately, she is the type of kid that gets upset if Mommy or Daddy is disappointed in her behavior).
I’m shocked it took this long for the ridiculous over reactions to begin.
More to follow, I’m sure.
Here in Plano TX schools there was a fight (two girls) a few days back in a school, not a really big deal actually. But the kids were handcuffed and taken off.
Yeah, the stupid meter will now peg out.
Then he'd be suspended for racism.
Teachers sure are dumb. Maybe that’s why the kids are too.
Thanks for the ping!
Thanks, VeniVidiVici! I had a gut feeling it was Spring but never heard of the school before.
