  • A five year old and a seven year old needed suspension? This is asinine at best .

  • I saw the little boy on the news. He was so sweet, he said he was trying to make a mountain, but it looked like a gun. He said his teacher was really mad and he realized he was in big trouble:( poor kid

  • These suspensions for children being children is getting out of control.
    Children are losing too much learning.

  • And yet kids are being knocked around on the playground until they have to be put into a coma and eventually die. Makes no sense to me!

  • That could've been any of my boys. That's what boys do. My oldest would run around with a plastic coat hanger and shoot imaginary bad guys before he started school. He used to jump off the couch and shoot imaginary webs like Spider-Man. We aren't a violent family, either. This is becoming the "thought police." What options do parents have against this stupidity? Laws suits? Homeschool? I couldn't just silently comply.
