    Another little boy has gotten in trouble at school for having something that represents a gun but isn’t actually anything like a real gun. This time, eight-year-old Asher Palmer rolled up a piece of paper, called it a gun and pointed it at other kids, reports the New York Post. Officials at the special-needs school in New York City which Palmer attended then expelled him. The school is the Lang School, a ritzy private bastion which specializes in educating students with language difficulties. Annual tuition is $51,500. “Asher is exactly the type of student Lang is supposed to be serving,”...

    by Gina Cassini | Top Right NewsDo you remember playing “hangman” as a child? Me too. But apparently no one among the staff of Beaverton Junior High School in Oreon ever has. Or they are so hysterical as a result of politically correct indoctrination that they have lost their collective minds: The school suspended a 13-year-old student and turned him over to police because of a “doodle” he drew showing a person being hanged, as part of the game 'Hangman', his father claims in court.

    School officials in Calvert County, Maryland have denied a request to expunge the suspension of the kindergartener who brought a plastic cap gun on a school bus last month and then wet his pants during a subsequent interrogation. The refusal came in the form of a letter dated Friday, reports The Washington Post. The letter stated that the five-year-old “did bring a cap gun in his book bag.” It also charged that some other children were frightened and told school officials that they couldn’t discern if the orange-tipped cowboy-style gun was real or fake. The unidentified kindergartener had brought the...

    The family of the 7-year-old boy from Ann Arundel County elementary school who was suspended for making a gun shape out of a pastry has tried to clear the boy’s record. This story made headlines across the country as the gun control debate has taken center stage among many elementary schools as some school administrators flex their muscles with a “zero tolerance policy” that excuses itself from common sense. But according to the Baltimore Sun school officials denied the boy’s family’s appeal on Monday, not allowing the boy’s record to be expunged of the incident. Robin Ficker, attorney for Park...

    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...

    The liberal insanity continues… Little seven-year-old Christopher Marshall was suspended from school for holding a pencil like a gun. He was pretending to be a Marine. That’s not allowed at his school. [video] The boy has good grades and has never caused any problems in classes before. FOX 43 reported, via Legal Insurrection: A Suffolk school suspended a second grader for pointing a pencil at another student and making gun noises. Seven-year-old Christopher Marshall says he was playing with another student in class Friday, when the teacher at Driver Elementary asked them to stop pointing pencils at each other. “When...

    I weep for my country. We are becoming pathetic fools and total wimps. Consider these jaw-dropping examples of behavior by adults who work in government schools. I think they must be competing for the Stupid Official of the Year Award. The contestants include: The bureaucrats who suspended a 7-year boy for pretending to throw a non-existent grenade on the playground. The bureaucrats who suspended a 6-year old boy in Maryland for making a gun shape with his finger. The bureaucrats who busted a 5-year old girl in Pennsylvania for having a pink plastic gun that shoots bubbles. The teacher in...

    BALTIMORE, - A Maryland father said it was "insanity" to suspend his 7-year-old son from school for chewing his breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun.

He's been asking, "When America, are you going to take your children out of these schools?" "I know it's hard... You say, 'I don't know how to homeschool.' Well, I don't either. But we're doing it."

    LOVELAND, Colo. — A 2nd grader has been suspended from school in Loveland for a make believe game he was playing. The 7-year-old says he was trying to save the world. But school administrators say he broke a key rule during his pretend play. “I was trying to save people and I just can’t believe I got dispended,” says Alex Evans, who doesn’t understand his suspension any better than he can pronounce it. “It’s called ‘rescue the world,’” he says. He was playing a game during recess at Loveland’s Mary Blair Elementary School and threw an imaginary grenade into a...

    More asinine overreaction from the quivering minds of school officials In Loveland Colorado, about 45 minutes North of Denver, a 7-year-old 2nd grader has been suspended for trying to save the world. It appears that the boy lobbed "an imaginary grenade into a box with what he called pretend evil forces inside." According to the child, he pretended to blow up the box "so nothing can get out and destroy the world." Thank God he wasn't carrying a Hello Kitty Bubble Gun, a small piece of paper, or a pointed finger. Who knows what kind of imaginary trauma he could...

    The boy, a fifth-grader at Douglas MacArthur Elementary School whose name is not being released, was charged as a juvenile with brandishing a weapon, police said. He was also suspended from school, and Alexandria City Public Schools Superintendent Morton Sherman said further action is being considered, including expulsion. On Monday, the boy showed the plastic gun to at least one other student during a bus ride home from the school. The 10-year-old did not point it at anyone or threaten to shoot it, but he neglected to mention that the weapon was fake, said Alexandria police spokeswoman Ashley Hildebrandt. School...

    When I was a kid, my parents made pancakes in various shapes: Clowns, wagons, Mickey Mouse. My mother may have made a gun-shaped pancake for me once. If not, certainly my father did. According to the latest “thinking” amongst “educators,” that gun-shaped pancake was child abuse. And they should know. They are in the child abuse business. The latest nonsense from our public school establishment is a certain hysterical over-reaction to guns. Not violence as such, but the mere image of guns. Take the recent case of a 7-year-old Maryland lad named Joshua, who, according to a Fox affiliate, was...

    Baltimore, MD (KTNV) -- A student in Baltimore was suspended over breakfast. 7-year-old Josh Welch was eating a Pop-Tart at school.

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...
