A bit extreme???? Psychological evaluation??? It was a freakin Hello Kitty bubble gun!!!

Quote:
A 5-year-old Pennsylvania girl who told another girl she was going to shoot her with a pink toy gun which blows soapy bubbles has been suspended from kindergarten.

Ficker says the girl didn't even have the bubble gun with her and has never fired a real gun. he says she's "the least terroristic person in Pennslyvania."

According to Fick, school officials heard about the conversation and questioned the girls for 30 minutes the next day.

......the children's parents were not informed this meeting was taking place. But the 5-year-old was deemed a "terrorist threat" and suspended for 10 days. The school then required the girl to have a psychological evalution.

maybe if all parents just took all their children out of school on count days or just pull them from public schools altogether, maybe that would get the school boards more on board of not being stupid.

Is all crime now considered "terror"? Just curious what type of political purpose she was trying to further by intimidating the civilian populace. Can we at least start using the term "terrorism" in the correct context?

The exiled author from the USSR, A. Solzhenitsyn, wrote a book called the 'Gulag Archipeligo', about life under communist rule and its prison system.

The stories of infractions committed to land you in prison seemed incomprehensible and perhaps an exageration from the perspective of a reader who lived in the USA.

These stories of mindless, I'll say persecution, rather than prosecution, that are taking place today in the United States, would not be out of order in that Russian communist society.

This 5 yr old girl terrorist is a perfect example of how the reliance solely on laws and lawyers will be our downfall. It is as if were were being ruled by a giant computer program sans artificial intelligence.

And these idiots want to have more face time with our children under the guise of a longer school year!!???

The Obama administration has unleashed the trash that our society has held to a trickle. Charges of racism as a political tool, pointing a finger is as good as pointing a gun and a list of words that are only allowed to be uttered in secrecy and the election and re-election of Obama by a gullible uninformned electorate are clear signs we are in deep trouble as a nation

I guess they will ban the word "Gun" and strike it from all dictionaries. That should solve all the worlds problems immediately. SMH.

I played war in the woods as a kid with fake guns and up to BB guns. It was no big deal. Go back a generation or 2, you could carry a rifle in the window of your truck to school without anyone getting their panties in a bunch. Now just mention the word gun in school and you get a full blown investigation??

This is zero tolerance. And it means just that..ZERO tolerance.
This way no one has to think or use logic or take context into account.

This is what the masses wanted and now you have it.

A tiny plastic knife in those lunch packs for spreading cheese on your crackers is considered a "weapon".
I think now those packs all have small wooden sticks or maybe have even removed them so kids use their fingers now.
