Insane Leftists Suspend Six Year Old for Pointing a Finger Like a Gun

The Left is insane.  They are completely bonkers, nuts, crazy and weird.

The Washington Compost has the story:
The parents of a 6-year-old Silver Spring boy are fighting the first-grader’s suspension from a Montgomery County public school for pointing his finger like a gun and saying “pow,” an incident school officials characterized in a disciplinary letter as a threat “to shoot a student.”

The first-grader was suspended for one day, Dec. 21. The family’s attorney filed an appeal Wednesday, asking that the incident be expunged from the boy’s school record amid concerns of long-term fallout.
EEEEEK!  He's Got Fingers!
Note to Leftists:  a finger is not a gun.  It cannot be loaded.  It cannot fire bullets.  In the old days, we used to call such incidents "playing."  I even had semi-realistic mock-ups of guns -- cap guns and squirt guns.  If someone brought one of those to this idiotic school, perhaps he would be convicted of a felony and imprisoned for years to come.

I have to wonder about the motivations of the school administrators for such unhinged behavior (on their part).  Did they do this because they are prone to gross overreaction and have no sense of proportion? Are they unhinged fanatics with absolutely no judgment?

Or did they do this to instill in the minds of school children that guns are so evil and terrible, that one cannot even pretend to fire one, lest he be arrested as a potential terrorist?  This would seem to be brainwashing children to become the docile adults necessary for mindless obedience to Big Brother.

Note to Parents:  Get your kids out of public school.  Stop the brainwashing!  If you can't afford private school, home school.

The attorney won the case. I haven't confirmed how much the attorney cost the parents, however.

That this little boy was treated in such a manner should never have happened in the first place. Surreal -- and that word isn't nearly strong enough.

Good to know the attorney won. This gross overreaction by school administrators has really got to stop. This is only of many such incidents. Remember the Eagle Scout who was suspended for 10 days because he had a scout knife in his trunk? Ridiculous.
