The nitwits and progressives who run Maryland's public schools have just suspended their fifth child for toy-gun-related playfulness. The Washington Post reports that this latest act of school-official-instigated nonsense occurred in Calvert County. A five-year-old child showed another the cap gun. The driver overhead it and that's when all hell broke loose. Over-reaction is too kind a word for the behavior of those darlings of the NEA.
Ladies and gentlemen, if bringing a toy gun to school is against policy, fine. Confiscate the gun for the day and let the little guy go about his school day. But why, oh why, was a two-hour interrogation of a five-year old necessary? Why did they not contact his parents immediately? His parents have retained an attorney.
The little guy has been suspended for the rest of the year (unless intelligence makes a come-back very soon). I have a better idea. Instead of suspending the little boy, let's suspend the principal and the other school officials who seem to think that hysterical behavior is a necessary qualification for the brainwashing of children.
