7 Year Old Virginia Second Grader Christopher Marshall Suspended From School For Holding Pencil Like A Gun
Public school insanity just got a bit more insane. A second grader was suspended from school for pointing a pencil at another student and making gun noises. Seven year old Christopher Marshall was playing with another student in class point pencils at each other. For this the boy was suspended. Some how pointing a pencil at another and making a gun noise is dangerous. Really? No you public education fools, handing a pencil as if it were a knife and trying to stab some one is dangerous, not making a pretend gun sound. IDIOTS, COMPLETE IDIOTS. There was nothing threatening about this, the boys were playing. But that did not stop the school from suspending the boy for two days.
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 asked him about it, he said, ‘Well I was being a Marine and the other guy was being a bad guy,’” said Paul Marshall, the boy’s father. “It’s as simple as that.”
Listen to the complete stupidity from spokesperson for Suffolk Public Schools: “A pencil is a weapon when it is pointed at someone in a threatening way and gun noises are made.” THREATENING? What part about the boys were playing as reported do you people not understand? Because something sound threatening, that makes it threatening? UNREAL. What if the boy had pointed the pencil at the other child and sang a Church hymn? Would that have made it less threatening? Oh my bad, that would have probably gotten him expelled for bringing religion into school. But this is the crap that comes out of public education these days. They cannot comprehend the difference between the two.
“Some children would consider it threatening, who are scared about shootings in schools or shootings in the community,” said Bradshaw. “Kids don’t think about ‘Cowboys and Indians’ anymore, they think about drive-by shootings and murders and everything they see on television news every day.”
8th Grader Jared Marcum Arrested & Suspended for Wearing NRA ‘Protect Your Right’ T-Shirt With Image of Gun
How do things like this happen in the United States?
Jared Marcum, an 8th grader at the Logan Middle School in West Virginia has been arrested, suspended and faces charges for wearing an NRA T-shirt with the image of a firearm and the words “Protect Your Right” printed on it to school. HUH? Police confirmed that Marcum had been arrested and faced charges of obstruction and disturbing the education process after getting into an argument with a teacher. HUH? The school is claiming that the shirt that Marcum was wearing, an NRA shirt that had “Protect Your Right” on it with the image of a gun violated the school’s dress code. However, no where in reviewing the school’s dress code policy did the 8th grader appear to violate said policy. No where in the dress code policy did it prohibit gun images.
Unreal. This school and this foolish teacher would attempt to ruin a kids life by having him arrested over a shirt with the image of a gun on it. Liberalism and PC running wild. Who knew that a pro-Second Amendment shirt would result in an 8th graders First Amendment rights being trampled? So where is the ACLU coming to his aid to protect his civil rights?
WOWK-TV reported Jared Marcum saying he never thought there would be a problem with his pro-Second Amendment apparel.
“I never thought it would go this far because honestly I don’t see a problem with this. There shouldn’t be a problem with this,” Marcum told WOWK-TV.
Police confirmed that Marcum had been arrested and faced charges of obstruction and disturbing the education process after getting into an argument over the shirt with a teacher at Logan Middle School, which is south of Charleston.
How does all this lead to an arrest and an 8th grader being sent to jail? Seriously, how does a dress code issue wind up in a school calling the police and attempting to ruin a kids life? Is this how educators think they are providing our children with an education? Maybe the teachers and school administrators need to do a home work assignment of their own and read the US Constitution.
This family should sue this school district and the teacher who he got into the argument with individually.
UPDATE I: The families lawyer, Ben White, said that the T-shirt did not appear to violate any school policy. White said he also wants to get the criminal charges dropped. It was the school that created this incident by improperly interpreting their own dress code policy and then escalating it with calling the police.
Their lawyer, Ben White, said that the T-shirt did not appear to violate any school policy.
“I just don’t understand why this teacher reacted the way he did,” said White, who said he asked school officials to preserve surveillance video of the cafeteria.
White said he planned to meet Monday with Principal Ernestine Sutherland.
Florida Dad Furious After Finding His 4th Grade Son’s School Paper: “I Am Willing to Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights … to Be Safer”
READING , WRITING and INDOCTRINATION …
These public schools just do not give up on brainwashing the children of America. Pay really close attentions parents, because the next child being indoctrinated might just be yours. Why do many liberal educators so hate the freedoms provided in the US Constitution? Maybe some one should have stood up and told the teacher that, “FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE”!
Aaron Harvey, a Florida dad who’s 4th grade son attends the Cedar Hills Elementary in Jacksonville is furious because of a writing assignment given to his son and rightfully so. As reports at Yahoo News, a local attorney came in to teach the students about the Bill of Rights. in January; however, after the attorney left, the fourth-grade teacher Cheryl Sabb dictated the following sentence to part of the class and had them copy it down … “I Am Willing to Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights … to Be Safer”. Really, why would a teacher pick giving up individual’s rights provided in the ‘Bill of Rights’to be the lesson of the day? Can you say liberal indoctrination? The question that needs to be answered is why should any of “WE THE PEOPLE” have to give up any of our Constitutional rights to be safer? But of course a 4th grader would never respond in that manner, thus the reason why a teacher would attempt to indoctrinate them at that age. At some point it needs to be made a criminal offense for teachers to bring their politics into the classroom. That would put an end to this nonsense.
The words are written in crayon, in the haphazard bumpiness of a child’s scrawl.
“I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.”
They’re the words that Florida father Aaron Harvey was stunned to find his fourth-grade son had written, after a lesson in school about the Constitution.
Florida 4th Grader Brings Home Paper That Says, I Am Willing to Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights in Order to Be Safer…
Aaron Harvey’s son wrote as part of a school lesson, “I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.” TheBlaze has redacted the child’s name.
Harvey’s son attends Cedar Hills Elementary in Jacksonville, Fla. Back in January, a local attorney came in to teach the students about the Bill of Rights. But after the attorney left, fourth-grade teacher Cheryl Sabb dictated the sentence to part of the class and had them copy it down, he said.
The following is rather telling. Kandra Albury, the spokesperson for Duvall County Public Schools stated that the Cedar Hills principal received many concerns by parents back in January when the lesson was first done and the district/principal was looking into it. The spokesperson made an underhanded reference that Harvey was not one of the concerned parents who complained. Here it is April, 3 months later, and the school district has still not explained themselves. Maybe they will now that they have been outed in the media as the furious father went directly to The Blaze rather than getting the run-around and the story buried by the district.
Kandra Albury, a spokeswoman for Duvall County Public Schools, which includes Cedar Hills, told TheBlaze she didn’t know what prompted Sabb to have students write the sentence.
She said the principal had fielded one parent’s concern about the lesson in January, but it wasn’t Harvey. She said Thursday the district and principal were “checking into” what had happened.
UPDATE I: Florida School District Responds to Child’s ‘Give Up Some of My Constitutional Rights’ Assignment: ‘A Review and Investigation Will Occur’.
The problem is not what the attorney taught in providing civics to the youth. At issue is the liberal teacher who wants children to start thinking about what rights they would give up to so-called be safer.
The lesson taught by the attorney was part of Justice Teaching, a program started by former Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice R. Fred Lewis that puts legal professionals in Florida schools to teach about the American legal system and the Constitution.
“The Justice Teaching activity on constitutional rights that was conducted at Cedar Hills Elementary School is consistent with our efforts to broaden civics-based education and develop critical thinking skills among our students,” Dr. Nikolai P. Vitti, superintendent of Duval County Public Schools, said in a statement to TheBlaze. “The lesson builds awareness of First Amendment rights through a partnership with an association of local attorneys. Our possible concern rests with a follow-up activity that may have been conducted after the lesson. A review and investigation will occur to determine the facts of that assignment.”

Ipswich Middle School Principal Fabrizio Cancels ‘Honors Night’ Because It Might Upset & Be “Devastating” to Students Who Didn’t Make The Grade
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN: EDUCATION HONOR EDITION:
What is going on in out schools? The latest head scratching incident comes from Ipswich, Massachusetts. David Fabrizio, Ipswich Middle School Principal, has canceled ‘Honors Night’ because it might make some students feel uncomfortable and upset who did not make the grade. ARE YOU SERIOUS? David Fabrizio wrote in a letter sent to parents that, “honors night, which can be a great sense of pride for the recipients’ families, can also be devastating to a child …” INCREDIBLE. Devastating to average students, are you friggin stupid? How about devastating to those who actually made the effort to succeed? This is what passes as a principal into today’s liberal public schools. They care more about how some one feels who fails, rather than rewarding those who actually succeed. I would ask this foolish and misguided principal, why give grades? Schools are supposed to uplift students, not gum down the education to the lowest common denominator. Let’s celebrate underachieving, way to go Principal Fabrizio. Welcome to the Nanny state collective, where liberals think its only fair that all are treated the same, even though all do not put forth the same effort.
In a letter sent home to parents last week, Fabrizio said that it is the school’s job to monitor both academic and social emotional growth. Concentrating on grades, “as strange as it sounds, can impinge upon the learning process,” he wrote.
“The honors night, which can be a great sense of pride for the recipients’ families, can also be devastating to a child who has worked extremely hard in a difficult class but who, despite growth, has not been able to maintain a high grade point average,” Fabrizio wrote.
Fabrizio emphasized that the school hasn’t ended honors recognition and that it believes in high achievement in all aspects of students’ lives.
“We are still honoring success, we are just doing it in a different form,” he said.
However, the idea of ending honors night isn’t sitting well with many parents.
“I think the school should be committed to excellence and not mediocrity,” Gillis said. “I was shocked because to get on the honor roll, you have to work hard. They shouldn’t cancel (honors night) because somebody’s feelings could be hurt. Life is a competition, and they should start competing.”
Kevin Whooley, who has a daughter in eighth grade, said many parents are “dumbfounded” as to why the honors night needed to be canceled.
“They have had honors night here for years, and there is no reason not to continue it,” he said. “It is like having a sports banquet for those who play sports. Not everyone makes honors. You can’t be politically correct about everything.”
I remember a world, not too long ago, where schools rewarded students who showed effort and success. I remember an academic environment when those who went the extra mile were rewarded for their merit. Not in today’s Middle School academia. What a message this sends to an impressionable child at such a young age … STRIVE TO BE AVERAGE.
We second the idea of the Jawa Report and contact this school and let them know your opinion. This school is not doing their students any favors. What a message, Let’s be average. The contact Info, in case you want to let this Principal know how stupid and unfair this policy is to the children who deserve recognition: (remember, be civil)
- Ipswich Middle School
- David Fabrizio, Principal
- 130 High Street Ipswich, MA 01938
- Phone 978-356-3535 – Fax 978-412-8169
Just curious … wouldn’t it be more devastating to the so-called average students if the smart kids got their awards in front of them at an assembly in front of the whole school, rather than a special night of just the honor’s students? The principals explanation of why he made this change makes no sense other than the fact that he must feel its not fair for some kids to get awards and others not. A note to Principal Fabrizio, life is not fair and you are doing none of these students any favors.
Maryland Lawmaker Republican Sen. J.B. Jennings Introduces Bill after Ludacris Pastry ‘Gun’ Suspension … The Reasonable School Discipline Act of 2013
Is it possible … finally some common sense legislation for school kids?
A Republican Maryland lawmaker, Sen. J.B. Jennings, has introduced a bill following the ridiculous suspension of a 7 year old boy who shaped a pastry into what a teacher had presumed to be a gun. Because we all know that guns made of pastry are lethal. The bill that would prohibit schools from suspending students for seemingly harmless childish acts, such as playing games with fingers pointed like guns or chewing food into the shape of a firearm. In other words the bill would prevent teachers and school administrators from acting like dumb asses.
A NOTE TO SCHOOL OFFICIALS … THIS IS A PASTRY.
THIS IS A GUN!
Sen. J. B. Jennings, R-7-Baltimore and Harford counties said that “We really need to reevaluate how kids are punished.” Hopefully, this will put some type of common sense and a dent in the “zero tolerance” discipline policies in Maryland public schools. The days of ruining a child’s life over ‘Hello Kitty’ bubble guns, pastry guns, playing “save the world” and playing with imaginary weapons of pointing your finger and thumb like a gun need to end and end now!
A Maryland lawmaker has introduced legislation after a 7-year-old boy in his district was suspended for shaping a pastry into what his teacher thought looked like a gun. The Star Democrat reports that Republican Sen. J.B. Jennings introduced a bill that would prohibit schools from suspending students for seemingly harmless childish acts, such as playing games with fingers pointed like guns or chewing food into the shape of a firearm. “These kids can’t comprehend what they are doing or the ramifications of their actions,” Jennings told the paper. “These suspensions are going on their permanent records and could have lasting effects on their educations.”
From the Star Democrat: Jennings put Senate Bill 1058 – The Reasonable School Discipline Act of 2013:
From kids getting kicked out of school for playing games with fingers pointed like guns on the Eastern Shore, to chewing their breakfast pastry into “gun-like” shapes in Baltimore, Jennings said the local trend is getting worse not better. “These kids can’t comprehend what they are doing or the ramifications of their actions,” he said. “These suspensions are going on their permanent records and could have lasting effects on their educations.” The bill, entitled “Education [-] The Reasonable School Discipline Act of 2013,” proposes what Jennings called in his press release clear, straightforward guidelines on what is and what is not acceptable when handling matters that amount to “children being children.” The bill describes appropriate discipline that must be adhered to during counseling students of all grade levels in any Maryland school that uses public funds, stated Jennings. The bill includes a counseling and disciplinary protocol for violations by school administrators. According to Jennings, another of the bill’s provisions makes it impossible for minor incidents, such as those in the recent news, from being entered into the students’ permanent academic record, unless it involves an upper-school student intent on repeatedly violating school policies with regards to firearms and/or violence.
How sad is it that we have reached a level of political correctness and stupidity that we would have to pass such a law?
Finally, a law that actually allows for the protection of school children … Reading, Writing and Revolvers.
South Dakota has become the first state in the Nation to enact a law explicitly authorizing school employees to carry guns on the job. The bill was signed into law on Friday by Gov. Dennis Daugaard. The law is in response to the call to arms to protect school children following the Newtown, CT Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting that left 20 dead. What better way to protect innocent children from the Adam Lanza’s of the world than taking away ”gun free zones”. As the Right Wing News opines, such places are considered easy pickings by those crazoids who are hell bent on mass murder and taking out as many as possible before they take their own life. This law specifically authorizes teachers to possess a firearm in a K-12 school. Protecting children in schools is not about taking law-abiding citizens Second Amendment rights away, it’s about a show of force against those that would cause harm to innocents. Why would a crazed killer attack a school, a movie theater or a mall, because they are gun free zones. Create a barrier or perception that they are not gun free and a cowardly killer would think twice. That, or they will be gunned down before too much damage is done.
South Dakota became the first state in the nation to enact a law explicitly authorizing school employees to carry guns on the job, under a measure signed into law on Friday by Gov. Dennis Daugaard. Several other states already have provisions in their laws — or no legal restrictions — that make it possible for teachers to possess guns in the classroom. In fact, a handful of school districts nationwide do have teachers who carry firearms. But South Dakota is the only known state with a statute that specifically authorizes teachers to possess a firearm in a K-12 school, according to Lauren Heintz, a research analyst at the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Representative Scott Craig, a freshman Republican in the South Dakota House who sponsored the bill, said he hoped the measure would shift the country’s discourse on school safety.
“Given the national attention to safety in schools, specifically in response to tragedies like in Connecticut, this is huge,” he said. He added that, hopefully, “dominoes will start to fall, people will see it’s reasonable, it’s safer than they think, it’s proactive and it’s preventive.”
So Punks, do ya feel lucky trying to target a school in South Dakota?
Good Grief … Michigan Elementary School Confiscates 3rd Graders “Insensitive” Cupcakes Because They Were Decorated With Plastic Toy Soldiers
UNBELIEVABLE … WHAT HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN?
The insanity and anti-gun hysteria continues in our public schools. This time it is a Michigan Elementary School that confiscated a 3rd graders cupcakes because they were decorated with plastic green toy soldiers. The cupcakes that were supposed to be a birthday treat were confiscated because the toy soldiers had guns. The school deemed this “insensitive”. Sorry for the pun, but what kind of “candy-a$$es” are we raising in today’s schools? The politically correct nonsense is a joke and beyond ridiculous. OMG, those green plastic Army men were one of my favorite toys growing up. Now they are considered “insensitive”. Maybe these school Administrators should be categorized as “insane”. However, I guess the mother who made the evil cupcakes should look on the bright side, at least her son was not suspended for this terrible act.
A Michigan elementary school is defending its decision to confiscate a third-graders batch of homemade cupcakes because the birthday treats were decorated with plastic green Army soldiers. Casey Fountain told Fox News that the principal of his son’s elementary school called the cupcakes “insensitive” — in light of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. “It disgusted me,” he said. “It’s vile they lump true American heroes with psychopathic killers.” Fountain’s wife made a batch of 30 chocolate cupcakes for their son Hunter’s classmates at School Elementary School in the town of Caro. The 9-year-old helped decorate the treats with plastic figurines representing World War Two soldiers.
Political Correctness has gotten out of hand. It is simply amazing that we as a society cannot differentiate good from evil. I guess cupcakes with carpenters or baseball players would be banned as well since they might be carrying hammers and bats?
Fountain said it was beyond outrageous to compare American soldiers to deranged mass murderers. “In our politically correct society they can’t separate the good from the bad,” he said. ”I’m sure hammers are allowed in schools — although a lot of people are killed by hammers.” Principal Wright explained in her statement that she meant no disrespect to the military. “By not permitting toy soldiers on cupcakes at school, no disrespect for our military or for the brave men and women who defend our rights to have our differences was intended,” she wrote. “Our commitment is always to our children and creating a safe place for them to learn, grow and have respectful dialogues about their differences.”
The Last Refuge reminds us of the lunacy in the Maryland schools where they dispatched counselors to evaluate the psychological damage from a child nibbling a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun. GOOD GRIEF!!!
EXIT QUESTION: If the mom had put gay, lesbian or transgender figurines on the cupcakes, would that have been deemed insensitive? How out cupcakes decorated with Mohammed?
Teacher Suspended at Odyssey School in Newnan, GA for Poor Judgement After Pretending to Shoot 1st Graders to Teach Them About Sandy Hook Elementary Massacre
Wow, this might be filed under one of the worst ill-conceived lesson plan ever …
With all of the rules in schools today when it comes to bringing guns to school, whether they be pink “Hello Kitty” toys or not, or the rules restricting what games children can play, like “Save the World” and even not allowing children to point their fingers like a gun … it is a bit amazing that a substitute teacher thought it would be a good idea to do the following stunt. Mariano Pacetti, a teacher at Odyssey School in Newnan, Ga, decided to teach the children about the Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre in Newtown, CT by playing a kind of hide-and-seek game where he encouraged students to hide while he pretended to be a gunman. Pacetti pointed his finger at a student and said, “Bang you’re dead.”
The teacher at Odyssey School in Newnan, Ga., identified as Mariano Pacetti, was playing a kind of hide-and-seek game where he encouraged students to hide while he pretended to be a gunman, the Newnan Times-Herald reported. He formed a gun with his fingers and pointed to one boy and said, “Bang you’re dead.”
School director Andy Geeter told the newspaper Pacetti “exercised poor judgement” in the activity, which some parents said gave their children nightmares, according to WAGA-TV. Twenty first-grade students and six adults were killed when a gunman shot his way into the school in Newtown, Conn. and opened fire before killing himself in December.
Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora, Colorado School Bans White Students From After-School Tutoring Program … Only for Children of Color, Whites Need Not Apply (Update: School Apologizes)
WHAT PART ABOUT DISCIMINATION DOES THIS SCHOOL NOT UNDERSTAND?
Just when you thought you had heard it all when it came to public education in the United States, along comes to following. A school principal for the Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora, Colorado has stated that NO WHITE CHILDREN were allowed in an after-school tutoring program. WHAT!!! A student of color only tutoring program? Really? So what part about segregation and discrimination doesn’t this principal quite understand? So it is ok for children of color to get special tutoring, but not white children? Imagine, just imagine if the story was reversed and the letter that went home to parents from the principal states that ‘children of color need not apply’? Ironically enough the sign outside of the Mission Viejo Elementary school states: “To inspire every student to think, to learn, to achieve, to care”. I guess some one needs to inform the principal of the elementary school’s mission statement? The Board of Education seems to be throwing the principal Andre Pearson under the bus and blaming him for this entire fiasco.
A school principal said no white children were allowed at an after-school tutoring program, and now some parents call it discrimination.
The principal at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora sent a letter telling parents the program is only for students of color. Parents CBS4 talked with said they were shocked to see, in this day and age, what they consider to be segregation.
“I was infuriated. I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups,” said parent Nicole Cox, who is white.
HOW DOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPEN IN AMERICA? Is this the principals way of getting even with “Whitey”? Making matters worse in this story of discrimination, guess what color principal Andre Pearson is? Yes, he would be an individual of color. I wonder how he would feel if the roles were reversed? It is truly sad and pathetic that a school administrator would actually think that any form of discrimination would be ok.
UPDATE I: as reported at The Daily Caller, the School district is in full scale damage control and apologizing for Principal Pearson’s actions. They claim his letter was a mistake. Um, this was no mistake on his part. He truly intended to go forward with the reverse-discrimination. AN APOLOGY IS NOT ENOUGH, PRINCIPAL PERSON NEEDS TO BE FIRED!!!
The district has since apologized for the error. A spokeswoman for the school district told KJCT that Pearson’s letter was a mistake and that white students can participate in the tutoring program.
“We deeply regret that they got that communication,” the spokeswoman added, according to notes CBS Denver.
UPDATE II: Letter to Parents ?February 12, 2013 … Principal André Pearson in full damage control mode.
Mission Viejo Parents,
I want to express my regret for the communication sent last Friday describing the PASS Tutoring program sponsored by our PASS parent committee (Partnership for Academically Successful Students). The PASS committee is focused on partnering with the principal to close the racial achievement gap; however the tutoring program is open for all students, regardless of race/ethnicity, and on a first come, first served basis. As your child’s principal, I am equally concerned about the success of all students who attend our wonderfully diverse school.
I have deep convictions and take my responsibility as a school principal very seriously. This situation has not deterred me in any way from continuing to do my job with a dedication to excellence. I am committed to ensuring every child in our school succeeds while closing the achievement gap…it is a moral imperative for me as a public educator. I will continue to do both of those things with great passion.
In alignment with our District Performance Plan, Mission Viejo has set goals to increase the achievement of all students while eliminating differences in academic performance and growth by race. I welcome input from any and all community members to help us achieve these goals. As a community we will continue to work hard to establish strong positive relationships with parents through PASS, PTCO and Accountability meetings.
In addition to the PASS Tutoring Program, we have many other programs that are intended to help students including, but not limited to, Reading Together, Saturday Academy, Math Club, and Reading Clubs, as well as teachers who make themselves available for afterschool tutoring. If you have concerns about your child’s academic progress, please notify your child’s teacher and they will give you guidance on what steps we can take, together, to ensure your child’s success.
If you have any questions regarding this matter, do not hesitate to contact me.
André Pearson, Principal
GOOD GRIEF … THE NONSENSE CONTINUES … REMEMBER WHEN SAVING THE WORLD WAS A GOOD THING?
A 7 year old 2nd grader has been suspended from his elementary school in Loveland, CO for a make believe game he was playing of saving the world. That’s correct folks, a child suspended from school for pretending to be a hero and saving the world. Because how dare a school ever want to instill in a child the traits of saving the world. WTF!!! In his imaginary game of saving the world he broke the school lists “absolutes” designed to keep a safe environment. The list includes absolutely no fighting, real or imaginary; no weapons, real or imaginary. UNREAL. And the wusification of boys in America continues.
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 box with pretend evil forces inside.
“I pretended the box, there’s something shaking in it, and I go ‘pshhh.’”
The boy didn’t throw anything real or make any threats against anyone. He explains he was pretending to be the hero. “So nothing can get out and destroy the world.”
Could this country possibly be any more stuck on stupid? A note to this boy for the future. If you are ever put in a real position of saving the world, ignore these A$$clowns at your school and please do so. All of the normal people of the world will thank you.
EXIT QUESTION … I WONDER IF THESE OUT OF TOUCH LIVERAL SCHOOLS WOULD SUSPEND JESUS CHRIST FROM SAING THE WORLD IF HE USE A REAL OR IMAGINARY CRUCIFIX?
