6 year old kid gets suspension for making a gun gesture with his thumb and forefinger. Really folks? WTF? This is a bit much. Here is an article about and I love this reporter as she really does at it. Its pretty hilarious and it makes the school system look like a bunch of fools.. Here is a little tid bit..
. "I was stunned by news that the Montgomery County public school system had suspended a first grader for pointing his finger like a gun and (allegedly) saying, “Pow.” I was stunned that he was the only one we rounded up. First-graders have been getting away with horrible, heinous crimes for far too long. Just because you’re six is no excuse. What about all the kids who get away, every year, with spreading “cooties”? Clearly, this is a threat of biological warfare. They should be expelled — then quarantined.
What about all the kids who climb into boxes and announce that they are rocket ships? This violates lots of building codes, and those crafts are clearly not space worthy. What about the kids who simulate car crashes with their plastic cars? Cars are far deadlier weapons than finger-guns, and you need a license to drive them. Where are their licenses? Do you know the number of innocent cruise ships, liners, and rubber ducks sunk by careless six-year-old children daily? It makes the regime of Pol Pot pale by comparison.
Hide and seek? Sounds Nazi. What about all the kids who build block towers? Surely that’s a violation both of union rules and safety codes. Where are their helmets? Why aren’t they being compensated? How dare they do it on weekends?
What about all the children, six and older, who create Monopolies control large swaths of Boardwalk, and charge onerous rates to hotel visitors?
Play doctor? That’s definitely malpractice. Ring around the rosy? That’s a reference to bubonic plague, which should not be taken so lightly......"

"Children used to play Cowboys and Indians or Cops and Robbers. These days, they’d be arraigned for genocide and theft."
This sentence makes me sad. I am so tired of the stupidity in the country. We grew up playing these games and the majority of us did not turn into serial killers and criminals.
