11-yr-old suspended from school for merely talking about guns

OWINGS, MD -- The father of a middle schooler in Calvert County, Md. says his 11-year-old son was suspended for 10 days for merely talking about guns on the bus ride home.

Bruce Henkelman of Huntingtown says his son, a sixth grader at Northern Middle School in Owings, was talking with friends about the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre when the bus driver hauled him back to school to be questioned by the principal, Darrel Prioleau.

"The principal told me that with what happened at Sandy Hook if you say the word 'gun' in my school you are going to get suspended for 10 days," Henkelman said in an interview with WMAL.com.

So what did the boy say? According to his father, he neither threatened nor bullied anyone.

"He said, I wish I had a gun to protect everyone. He wanted to defeat the bad guys. That's the context of what he said," Henkelman said. "He wanted to be the hero."

The Principle knows what happened at Sandy Hook?

The government can't go completely HITLER on the American people until all boys and men are turned into soft, limp-wristed mush. That's what the assault on boys is all about. Our government is eliminating their only threat-- REAL men. One boy at a time.

Can you see a bunch of THESE revolting against the government? LOL

An imported foreign hit team, probably Chechnyan, executed some school kids to forward the left’s gun confiscation agenda?

Government schools need to be closed. Our nation’s children are being brainwashed and indoctrinated. I fear that 10 years from now, when I am entirely too old and unable to physically defend out nation, that there will only be a bunch of queer boy scouts writing strongly worded letters to the UN between sessions of fornicating in foxholes.

America is being taken over by Communists/Socialists crippled by Political Correctness...

...actually, our culture has been usurped by unrestrained feminism, flexing muscle it was never foreseen having...this power surge has unbalanced the feminist brain, rendering it incapable of the merest self control, and any restraint causes fear of losing that power...

...almost certainly these people acting idiotically (particularly you female school principals) know they are doing so, but think anything less exposes them to charges of backtracking...

Calvert Country schools has always been a bit of a cesspool. When NAVAIR moved down there it raised the caliber of the students and the expectations, but the staff was as complacent and marginal as ever. Glad we got out of there.

-——The boy was questioned by the principal and a sheriff’s deputy, who also wanted to search the family home without a warrant, Henkelman said. “He started asking me questions about if I have firearms, and [the deputy said] he’s going to have to search my house. Search my house? I just wanted to know what happened.”-——

-——No search was performed, and the deputy left Henkelman’s home after the father answered questions in a four-page questionnaire issued by the Sheriff’s Office.——

A four page questionnaire ?

Search his home ?

Certain parts of the country have gone completely insane.....

You mean these kids....

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/liveblog/files/2012/12/APTOPIX_Connecticut_School_Shooting-0333f.jpg

Maybe so. The picture has been photoshopped (girl in turquoise with crying face has photoshop lines at her shoulders and neck line.) That is obvious. But no one has IDed these kids. The number of boys and girls matches or is almost the same as the number victims - total and by gender. Odd.

This is an almost lily white school. Who is the black girl in the purple pants and matching headband with her hair pulled up in a fro-bun?

Is that Anna Marquez-Greene? Who, like many, many, many of the victims RECENTLY MOVED IN.

Here a link - has good picture of Anna. Just look to the right of the insert for the purple. Even the insert has the hair in a similar style.

http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/news/2012/12/15/newtown-school-shooting-more-details-about-6-year-puerto-rican-girl-killed/

“...had recently moved from Canada with her family.”

Not one drop of blood. Not one. 6 months - no blood. No broken windows in the classrooms. High Def pictures showing kids in the classrooms that morning - unharmed.

And then this...

What is wrong with those people? The father “had” to answer a four page questionnaire to get the Sheriff’s deputy out of his house?

Wow.

The Navy folks come in here we welcome them, but most look down on residents of Southern Maryland as ignorant rednecks.

Many begin to love Southern Maryland and stay here to retire, many go back to wherever they came from thinking they are hurting the “caliber” by leaving. They aren’t.

The father was a fool to fill out a four page questionnaire just because some Nazi ahole masquerading as a sheriff’s deputy told him to do so.

The dad should have used that “questionnaire” for toilet paper, crammed it into the deputy’s swarmy face, and called his attorney.

Sorry if the truth hurts.

The Calvert schools were bad news and St Marys’ worse. Blatant discrimination and violation of State and Federal laws and regulations. Call them on it and all hell breaks loose in terms of revenge upon your student. I say that as a parent who had that happen to them and won multiple complaints, one of which contributed to a principal leaving the district for an Eastern Shore teaching job “to have more time with his family”.

I did my time there like many others and moved on. Nothing particularly commendable or attractive there. It has changed mightily from when we first moved there, and that is a good thing. However the anti gun climate is such that I would rather accept orders to Fallon than Pax again.

I believe the term you were dancing around is “SMIB”

Can’t agree more....

The questionnaire would have been handed back with instructions to mail to my attorney....and Mr. LEO would have been politely shown the door...

Sad to say, but the odds are that the Principle will end up before a Communist firing squad on the last day of his life. When they complete their takeovers they execute the educators.

Though I have doubts about whether US history is taught anymore..how is the firing on Ft. McHenry taught? Did the British throw marshmallows and popcorn rather than fire cannons and rockets? Did the colonists on Concord Bridge wave handkerchief's at the British troops?

A derogatory term used by come downers meaning” Southern Maryland In Breds.”

Yes I am certain from your tone that you are familiar with it. Glad to see you found a new place to live. Hope it serves you better. I am always happy when people leave who do not want to be here to begin with. You see the fact that you did not want to be here makes your opinion biased. Glad you got out.

Pax River brought many jobs to Southern Maryland and Many things not so good, including people who do not want to be here.

Maryland of course is filled with Democrats, but we have a growing population of people who are wising up.

Is “come downers” really that different that SMIB? I think not.

We arrived in Lusby when NAVAIR did in late 90s and lived in the Ranch Club. The schools were the worst part of being there. I was amazed at how untouchable and in charge the educrats thought they were. They made comments to both parents and students about how us newcomers just did not understand. That started to change when some of us organized and starting forcing compliance to ADA and the like. I was in a meeting where a principal said to a group of parents that he ran the building his way and we had no business interfering by insisting the ADA be followed and his staff follow the law. It was that bad. When we helped get rid of a principal and multiple police complaints were filed against staff members they started taking our complaints more seriously, but I wonder how many kids got hurt in the interim.

Henkelman is in need of an ass kicking.

I hope he answered all the questions with a "None of your business" response.
