Baltimore, MD (KTNV) -- A student in Baltimore was suspended over breakfast.
7-year-old Josh Welch was eating a Pop-Tart at school. A teacher saw the pastry and said she thought it looked like it was being shaped into a gun.
The teacher also said she heard Welch say, "Bang Bang" while he was holding it.
That was enough to get him suspended.
Welch said his teacher got it completely wrong, "It was already a rectangle and I just kept on biting it and tore off the top, and it kind of looked like a gun but it wasn't."
Welch said he was trying to shape the Pop-Tart into a mountain.
The school sent out a letter late in the day to parents explaining what happened and why they thought it was a threat saying, "A student used food to make an inappropriate gesture."
Welch was suspended for two days.
I saw a cloud float by shaped like a gun the other day.
I wonder if any schools went on lockdown?
Idiocracy is here
PC has overtaken any semblance of reality.
ARE YOU F***ING KIDDIN’ ME??
Sorry for shouting but this is SO far beyond absurd.
Probably get the same reaction if he brought a Pope Tart to school.
Just another day at the Pooblik Skrewl Kollective.
Ed majors doin’ their indoctrination thing at the Kollective near you.
He got extra time for sculpting his pop-tart into an “Assault weapon” but fortunately it only had a 10 round pop-tart magazine, so it was only an extra day.
CITIZEN’S ARREST, CITIZEN’S ARREST!!!!!
My wife and I couldn't decide of our oldest son should have toy guns, UNTIL he started making his toast into guns and shooting us with it.
Boys like guns, they like to play cowboys and Indians. The play war and Cops and Robbers. They also like to play Zombie Apocalypse. I refuse to put up with zero tolerance and made them remove the policy from our private parochial school.
Perhaps there will be a silver lining to this, in that many of these children will grow up despising these lunatics, or at least seeing them for what they are. One could always hope. How remarkable to realize than now in our country a primary role for a responsible parent anymore, is that of de-programmer.
Two of the most harmless boys imaginable that I went to school with would have been locked up for life and brain-wiped.
The little seven-year-old perp, Josh, gets identified, but the squealer apparently remains anonymous.
The execrable hussy ought, instead of squealing on him, to have walked up beside him and quietly said, “Eat that, before it lands you in trouble.”
My husband and I were watching this story on the news yesterday, giving it the “roll-eye.” But just a couple hours ago he came home from work (he’s a 10-year public school substitute teacher) and told me because a year ago he was explaining the differences between the candidates (during a government class), and mentioned abortion, the powers that be told him today, you can’t talk about abortion. You’re fired!
He probably had to do it to defend himself from the kid across the table shooting at him with that high capacity chicken wing.
So are they going to put him in a death camp with millions of other kids that only have poptart guns while the government is still allowed to own real guns?
