HYANNIS (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - A 5-year-old boy faces possible suspension, after building a gun out of legos, during his after school program.

Joseph Cardosa is part of the after school program at Hyannis West Elementary School, on Cape Cod. His parents received a letter a few days ago that said Joseph has received his first written warning for using toys inappropriately, and that upon a secon written warning, he will be suspended from the program for two weeks.

Joseph's parents, Shelia Cruz and Octavio Cardosa, say the school is taking things too far.

"It's not like he's designing a machine gun," said Cardosa...

The principal of Hyannis West Elementary told Fox 25 "we need a safe enviornment for our students," and said: "While someone might think that making a Lego gun is just an action of a 5-year-old, to other 5-year-olds, that might be a scary experience."

Only when the parents start pulling their kids out of these liberal hell holes and start their own home schools will things change. When the enrollment drops in the public schools, the funding will also drop. Stop this madness by hitting them in the pocket book. Less funding, less need for teachers, etc.....

The kid should give up his interest in relatively innocuous firearms and take up soccer - a sport in which you can please the soccer moms and do some serious damage at the same time:

I think it’s a scary experience for any child to have to attend a Massachusetts public school considering the indoctrination they’re subjected to every day.

Hyperbole. My two sons do just fine in the public schools here.
