Schools in a Pennsylvania county were put on lockdown after a receptionist misunderstood the words of the theme song to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” which a student had as his cellphone greeting, and thought the teen was going to commit violence.Then there's the poor kid who got into trouble because he had a pastry that might have looked like a gun.
A 7-year-old boy Baltimore boy was suspended from school after his teacher complained that the boy chewed a breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun, the boy's father says.Then there's this kid suspended for having a picture of a gun on his computer.
FLORENCE, AZ - A high school student in Florence said he has been suspended because of a picture of a gun.I am told that folks who work in schools are college educated, but it seems to me that they're having problems separating reality from non-reality. A pictcure, a pastry, and a song are no reason to get the vapors. Get a grip, folks. Those things aren't guns. They don't look like guns and in the case of the pastry, they certainly don't taste like guns.
Daniel McClaine Jr., a freshman at Poston Butte High School, said he saved the picture as his desktop background on his school-issued computer.
I agree with Instapundit on this one: "If you aren’t smart enough to distinguish reality from non-reality, you shouldn’t be allowed around kids."
