When do Americans say, “enough is enough,” stop accepting this sort of stupidity as part of modern living and start firing the people responsible?
A 7-year-old Maryland boy was suspended from school for two days for shaping a breakfast pastry into what his teacher thought looked like a gun, according to his father.
FoxBaltimore.com reports that Josh Welch, a second-grader at Park Elementary School in Baltimore, was eating a strawberry tart when he decided to shape it into a mountain.
“All I was trying to do was turn it into a mountain but, it didn’t look like a mountain really and it turned out to be a gun [kind of],” Josh told the station.
…A letter was sent home with students explaining that “a student used food to make an inappropriate gesture,” the station reported.
We’re talking about a seven year old here, folks. He didn’t bring a gun to school. He didn’t bring a toy guy to school. He didn’t do anything dangerous. He didn’t threaten anyone. He just played with his strawberry tart and it sort of looked like a gun.
That’s it — and next thing you know, he’s suspended and a letter is being sent home to all the students.
The people responsible for this are simply unsuited to work with children. Fire them. Fire everyone in the decision-making chain. Fire everyone at the school who thinks it’s a good idea until a message is sent and these blockheads across the country get the message. Stop picking on small children because of your mindless, nutty anti-gun hysteria. Get over it already or find a new job!
