In this edition of zero
tolerance sense dumbassery, a little boy gets punished for doing what ostensibly is “the right thing.”
A 7-year-old boy western Pennsylvania boy who turned himself in after accidentally bringing a toy gun to school has been suspended for two days but will not be expelled.
The kid apparently forgot his bookbag at a friend’s house, so mom gave him another bag, which contained what was clearly a toy gun.
The little guy knew that he could get in trouble for bringing the toy to school, given the academic asshattery surrounding anything that could be used as a weapon on school property (can’t wait to see what happens the first time some kid stabs another with a pencil! Oh, wait…), so he brought the toy to the teacher and turned it in just like he was indoctrinated into doing.
At what point do we admit that this idiocy does nothing but land good kids in hot water and ruin lives? At what point do we boot the idiot teachers and administrators who destroy these children for no reason out and not allow them near kids again until they learn some common sense?
